About Us

Mr. William "Bill" Bethel an Iraqi War Veteran started his career as a pest control technician after he was honorably discharged from the U.S. Marine Corps in 2004.

Over the next couple of years he worked for several local and national pest control companies. During this time Mr. Bethel not only learned how to treat for pests, but more importantly how to treat his customers.

Believing that there was room for improvement in the area of customer service, Mr. Bethel was motivated to develop both his technical skills as well as those for customer service and management. That motivation was the start of the creation of Roughneck Pest Control in 2010.

In a relatively short span of time, Roughneck Pest Control has grown from a two person operation to six dedicated professionals in 8 short months, with the primary goal to provide quality pest control techniques, coupled with an outstanding customer service experience. Today, Roughneck Pest Control delivers services to both residential and commercial customers recognizing the unique needs of both. Our services include both the removal and prevention of most common pests in the mid-Atlantic area.

Roughneck Pest Control services deals with pests such as termites, fleas, lice, ants, cockroaches, bees and wasps, and all small rodents.

Due to the increased concern over bedbugs, Roughneck has invested in both education and technology to develop effective protocols against these pests, including the development of a Canine Bedbug Detection Program.

Our treatment protocols are safe and effective focusing on low toxicity and environmentally friendly applications. In fact, Roughneck is a strong proponent of the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) best practices as defined by the US Environmental Protection Agency.

For our residential customers, we believe in thoroughly educating our customers on the pest issues they face and review with them a detail plan as to how we will resolve those issues so that they may make an informed and educated decision. We strongly believe that by spending a little extra time results in higher customer satisfaction in the end.

Recognizing the special needs of our commercial customers, Roughneck not only brings experience and technology to bear, but offers formal training programs to educate janitorial and maintenance staffs on how to identify various types of pests and the damage they inflict in a commercial environment.

Our combined years experience has provided us with the opportunity to assist a wide variety of commercial locations including office buildings, warehouses, restaurants, multi-family living units, shopping centers / malls, churches, schools and healthcare facilities.

As a customer service oriented business, Roughneck strongly believes that our future growth and success depend heavily on the satisfaction of our customers and that satisfied customers are more likely to recommend us to their friends.

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you.
