About Innovative Pest Solutions — A Message From Our Founder
In 2002, I founded Innovative Pest Solutions intending to give the people of the Triangle a solution to all their pest control needs. I am a third-generation pest control operator who has worked for a local pest control company for many years and worked with the Department of Agriculture regulating pest control companies in Wake County. I finally realized that it was time to go out and create my own business.
I built the company with the customer in mind, trying to exceed expectations every chance I got. In 2004, I added a partner, brother Scott, and we continued to provide pest control in Raleigh NC, and pest control in Durham NC. As the years went by, we added employees and expanded our business, but in 2016 things began to change for me.
In 2016, I joined an organization called C12. The organization's stated goal is to "Build a great business, for a Greater purpose." Once a month, I would sit around the table with 11 other Christian business owners to discuss our companies and help build each other up. It is at this point I realized that my business is much more than providing quality residential pest control services to the Raleigh/Durham market; it is a vehicle in which to build-up and care deeply for my employees and our clients and to reflect the character of Jesus Christ out into our community.
2 Corinthians 5:20 "Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ: Be reconciled to God."
Our Core Values
- Build Positively
- Serve Humbly
- Exceed Expectations
- All With A Grateful Attitude
We are human, so we will not be perfect every time, but we will strive to become better every day and serve our clients to the best of our abilities.
Our Mission Statement
Innovative Pest Solutions is committed to the God-honoring work of safeguarding families; protecting their homes, health, and the environment.
At Innovative we have always had a heart for our community and for others in this world. Here are a few ways we are giving back.
All our employees are asked to pick a child that is in the Compassion organization in Rwanda. Our local church has a tie to Rwanda and Rwanda has a special place in our hearts. Innovative pays for the sponsorship but all the correspondence is handled by the employee. We love to get letters from our guys and girls in Rwanda and share with one another all their stories.
From the Compassion website:
WE RELEASE CHILDREN FROM POVERTY IN JESUS' NAME
That is our mission, which we work to achieve through a holistic approach to child development. We carefully blend physical, social, economic, and spiritual care together… in Jesus' name.
The Food Bank of Eastern NC
Once a quarter we like to grab lunch together and then go work several hours at the Food Bank of Eastern NC. The Food Bank services over 31 counties in our areas to get food to people in need. This is a great way to give back to the community and to have a great team-building exercise.
Innovative Pest Solutions Is Here To:
Build Positively: We are a team. We work as a team, and we care for one another as a team. We build each other up, and all those around us with positive actions and encouragement.
1 Thessalonians 5:9-11 "For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
Serve Humbly: There is no "I" in team. We work together, sharing in our accomplishments and our failures. We do not work to gain glory but to be an ambassador for Innovative Pest Solutions.
Matthew 25:40, "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.'
Exceed Expectations: We go above and beyond what our fellow teammate and customers would expect from us. We surprise with quality and attention to detail.
Matthew 5:40-42 "And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles. Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you."
With A Grateful Attitude: We will always be grateful for what we have. Positivity is key to a great workplace.
Psalm 100:1-5 "Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with Thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good, and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations."
Looking back at what our company has become, I am proud of the team here at Innovative Pest Solutions and am humbly blessed at what we have accomplished so far. I also am excited to look to see what is in store for us in the future.
