Pest Knowledge is Power: Adapting Behaviors & Resistance

At Bugg's Murphy we take pests seriously. Believe it or not the pests we regularly exterminate and treat for are amazingly adaptive creatures which means we have to be too. They adapt, change patterns, build restance to insecticides and pesticides and there's new species accidentally being introduced on a regular basis.  To be an effective pest control expert it is critical to stay educated, attend seminars, read industry journals and learn about new products - which is exactly what we do.  Our team of technicians are trained and certified and Tom Murphy regularly attends continuing education courses given by the Ohio Department of Agriculture in order to make sure his pest control methods are up-to-date and effective at treating the pests as they adapt.  Some of the seminars Tom and the team at Bugg's Murphy have recently attended include Bed Bug Control, Roach Control, Pest Control in Food Services, Rodent Control, Pest Management in Retail Distribution, Cockroach & Ant Management in a Food Environment, Pest Management Evolution and Wood Destroying Insects just to name a few.

Bugg's Murphy Professional Exterminating History

Tom Murphy started Bugg's Murphy Professional Exterminating in 1991.  As a fireman for the City of Cleveland Fire Department for twenty five years, Tom had been trained in hazmat, or hazardous materials.  As a Cleveland firefighter, Tom would work multiple 24 hour shifts in a row, and then took the remaining of the week to make extra money and help a friend with his father's lawn care and pest control company.  After becoming a certified pesticide applicator Tom used their commercial-grade pesticide products on his own ten acre farm house and was completely amazed at their effectiveness, as well as the convenience of having a pest-free property. He was hooked. 

Tom got licensed, insured and began Bugg's Murphy Professional Exterminating while he was still a full-time fireman for the City of Cleveland Fire Department. The name Bugg's Murphy was inspired by "Bugsy" Siegel, one of the most feared gangsters in the 1920's, with the idea that the exterminators and pest control experts of Bugg's Murphy should be as feared by the cockroaches, bed bugs, ants, rodents and other pests they exterminate.
