Day in the Life of a Pest Control Technician

Are you looking for a pest control technician job? Whether you’re new to the job or have several years of experience, we know you want a job where you can do meaningful work. At Anti-Pesto, we strive to provide just that for our employees. We’re expanding our business and looking for friendly, passionate people to join our team. But before you apply, you’ll probably want to know why you should choose Anti-Pesto. Today, we’ll share with you our heart for our employees and what a typical day at Anti-Pesto looks like!

Share in Our Mission

At Anti-Pesto, we view pest control as a secondary mission to what we do.  We are committed to our faith and our customers. Our company’s vision is to serve God while making the world a safer, healthier place. We know that we’re not just getting rid of pests—we’re helping keep families and businesses healthy, happy, and safe. We prioritize the protection of our beautiful city by using environmentally friendly treatments that don’t harm native pollinators or wildlife. 

When you work at Anti-Pesto, you are more than just a pest control technician or sales representative. You get to share in our mission of protecting local individuals from pests and ensuring the safety of the Tampa Bay area. You can go home each day knowing you made a difference in the lives of our clients and in the community in which you live and work.  

How We’re Different

We strive to be a step above the rest. Our commitment to excellence pushes us to improve our operations and better ourselves. For example, Anti-Pesto is a Quality Pro certified company—this is something less than 3% of pest control businesses are able to achieve. We also employ an IPM method for pest control. This means we target the root of a pest problem, rather than just spraying to quickly get rid of pests. 

You’ll also get to enjoy working for a locally owned and operated company. We see all of our employees as an extension of our family, and we’re grateful we have the opportunity to work with people who live and care about the same communities we do. Also, you may even get the chance to meet our office support dog, Red!

A Story of an Anti-Pesto Pest Control Technician 

What does a typical day at Anti-Pesto look like? Follow the story of Steve, a fictional representation of our employees, to see an example schedule of working at Anti-Pesto. 

Steve wakes up on a Monday morning. He feels refreshed after a relaxing weekend spent with family and friends and is ready to start the work week. He gets dressed and heads out to start the day. The Anti-Pesto office updates him on what clients need treatment today and gives him the addresses so he can drive directly there. 

His first client is an elderly woman who has an ant problem. He gets to talk to her about the issues, and she explains the situation. Steve promises he’ll get to the bottom of it and inspects the house. He discovers there are some cracks in her home that are allowing ants to get in. Sealing them will prevent them from entering. After identifying the root of the problem, Steve does a routine spray to create a barrier that will eliminate any existing ants in the home and deter others from returning. 

He explains to the client what he did and what he discovered. He provides tips for future prevention, gives her Anti-Pesto’s number in case she needs further services, and reminds her of Anti-Pesto’s pest-free guarantee. After she sincerely thanks him, he departs, knowing he brought peace of mind to the elderly woman. 

His day goes on very similarly. With many of his clients, he gets to enjoy the beautiful weather, soaking in the warm sun and the soft bay breeze. Steve thinks to himself how lucky he is that he gets to move and be outside for a lot of his job—he never really liked sitting at an office desk all day. At the end of the day, he gets back home to his family in time for dinner, and the next day, he’ll start the routine all over again. 

Learn and Grow in Your Career

If you’re new to the pest control industry, you may feel discouraged or even intimidated by the years of experience listings require of you. At Anti-Pesto, we want to see you learn and grow in your career, and we’re here to help guide you. 

Many of our best technicians came in with absolutely no experience in pest control. Some of them had careers as jail guards, truck drivers, tech guys, and more. But with us, they learned everything they needed to know about pest control and became successful in the field. So whether you have experience in pest control or you’re completely new to the job, there’s a place for you at Anti-Pesto.
