About Safer’s Pest Control Team
There is much to learn about us. Can you name any other home services company with a “Brain Trust” — one that has not one, but two entomology majors, one with a no-kidding PhD?
Well, Safer Home Services actually has a PhD on our advisory committee. Both Chuck Steinmetz and Phillip “Doc” Nichols are honest-to-God bug studying entomology majors, and you can see both of them standing next to Safer Home Services President, Jim Swayne, in the picture to the right.
Not only are Chuck and Doc bug scientists, they are giants in the Pest Control industry. Here’s a bit more about each Pest Protection Expert pictured:
As an entomologist, Chuck knew that cockroaches were periodomestic — meaning that they actually live outside and only venture into homes for food, water, or shelter. And that meant that it was possible to lock those pests out rather than trying to kill them once they were already inside. This simple insight revolutionized the industry and led to the creation of Once-A-Year Pest Protection.
But Chuck is far more than just a scientist, he’s also a business man. Having been successful in the Pest Control Industry, Chuck took his Once-A-Year Pest Protection strategy and revolutionized the industry with it by creating and running Sears Authorized Termite & Pest Control, which would grow to become one of the largest pest control companies in the United States. Mr. Steinmetz also founded and ran Middleton Lawn & Pest Control, which would grow to become one of the largest companies in Florida.
