Bob Jackson started Ornamental Pest Control in 1985. He built his company one customer at a time- earning trust and friends everywhere he went. He ran the company by himself, until his son, Rob Jackson, joined the business on January 1st, 2001. At this time, the company also changed its name to Jackson Pest Management.

In October 2011, Bob underwent heart valve replacement surgery and suffered severe complications, including kidney failure. Due to Bob’s health problems, he was no longer able to return to his normal work schedule. Rob took over managing the business and hired Robert Powell in the Spring of 2012. Robert has been a wonderful addition to the business.
