On January 28, 1992, Bug Doctor Termite and Pest Control opened for business. President Stuart Aust, who knew New York had a need for office and home pest control, brought years of experience to his new company with a resume that included time as Service Manager for Terminix, and Commercial Account Sales Representative for Western Pest Services.
In the company’s first year of business, Bug Doctor earned a solid reputation due to its hard work and personal, door-to-door marketing efforts. Soon, the company became known as one that offered some of the best, New York pest control services in the tri-state area. After a few years, and due to its dependable services in office pest control and home pest control, the company secured two commercial routes.
In the years since the company began, five new divisions have been added: Bird Doctor Nationwide in 1997, Mosquito Doctor in 2002, Animal Doctor in 2005, Bedbug Doctor in 2009 and Restoration Doctor in 2014.
One of Bug Doctor’s hallmarks is its formula for creative advertising on service vehicles and autos.
“Some people have a billboard on the highway, but I drive my billboard down the highway,” says Mr. Aust of the VW “Bugs” he uses as the company’s sales vehicle of choice.
The Bug Doctor fleet has grown to over thirty vehicles, all of which proudly display one of the five divisions of Bug Doctor. Bug Doctor division vehicles can be found throughout the New York tri-state area, and have been featured in numerous parades, career fairs, malls, trade shows and other events.
