A big component of our success at Command Pest Control is employing some of the best pest control technicians in the state. They serve as the face of Command for our clients across Little Rock, Conway and Springdale, and we want to help you get to know them better by spotlighting them on the blog! Today, we’re featuring Ben Peet. He took some time out of his busy schedule to talk about the work he does for Command, and what he’s learned about pest control in the five years he has worked here.

Tell us a little about your background. How did you get into pest control?

My dad worked here for over 25 years, and I started out right of high school.

What do you find exciting about the pest control industry?

There’s something new everyday. You get to see a lot of different situations, and figure out how to solve them.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

The freedom. And being outside all day.

What qualities make a good pest control technician?

Being able to schedule appointments, timeliness, personable skills – being able to talk to people

What is your favorite memory with Command?

Every year we get together and do something fun. We go to different hotels and restaurants and that’s always fun.

What do you wish the general public knew about keeping their homes safe from pests?

Keep the outside of your home clean and trimmed. Always make sure to get regular applications.

What do you do outside of work?

Raising a toddler! That’s about all I have time for.
