ANAHEIM, Calif. — Western Exterminator Company announced the purchase of Bullock’s Pest Control, based in Pahrump, Nev.

Bullock’s, founded in 1998 by David and Lorraine Bullock, is a family-owned company, which fits perfectly into Western’s business model.  Western will be servicing the nearly 500 Bullock’s accounts from its downtown Las Vegas service center. 

Western is committed to growing both its residential and commercial business in the Nevada region, and is a big supporter of community events, sponsoring a number of programs at the Las Vegas Natural History Museum and also the Summerlin Lions Club.   Western Service Center Manager and entomologist Grady Jones says, “I look forward to expanding our service and our community involvement into the Pahrump marketplace.” 

Western moved into the Nevada marketplace in 1995, and currently has two service centers in the Las Vegas area and one in Reno, with 60 Western team members directly serving their Nevada customers.
