Meet Our Owners

Anti-Pesto Bug Killers was founded by Howard Bright, known simply as ‘Howard’ to many of our long-term customers. In 1988, Howard saw a need for pest control solutions for businesses and homeowners that provided cutting edge solutions and trustworthy, personalized, customer-centric care. That vision spurred him on to attain membership in state and national associations. Howard has served as president of the Certified Pest Control Operator’s Association (CPCO) and is a well-known figure in the Tampa Bay area pest control industry. His vision and mission have spurred Anti-Pesto Bug Killers forward in its commitment to customers and utilization of the most intelligent, effective treatments available in modern pest management.
