Pest Knowledge is Power: Adapting Behaviors & Resistance

At Bugg's Murphy we take pests seriously. Believe it or not, we appreciate all insects and their role in nature and our ecosystem, however, we also believe that they do not belong in your home or business. The pests we regularly exterminate and treat for are amazingly adaptive creatures which means we have to be too. They adapt, change patterns, build resistance to insecticides and pesticides and there are new species 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 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 founded Bugg's Murphy Professional Exterminating in 1991.  At the time he was a firefighter for the City of Cleveland for twenty five years, and he had extensive training in hazmat, or hazardous materials. Tom would work multiple 24 hour shifts in a row, and then took the remainder of the week to make extra money and help a friend with his father's lawn care and pest control company, in addition to selling Christmas trees and taking care of his family's ten acre farm house.  Because of his connection to nature and animals, Tom already had a knowledge of plants and insects and an affinity for helping others. In order to become a certified applicator Tom did extensive training studying entymology and appreciated this work as another service to the public, keeping homes and businesses safe and free of unwanted pests. Tom became licensed, insured and started Bugg's Murphy Professional Exterminating while he was still a full-time fireman for the City of Cleveland Fire Department.
