Our Story

The company was founded in 1947 by Walter Lance. Walter started Admiral Pest Control out of his home in Bellflower, CA, in 1947. Walter’s wife answered the phone and took the orders, while Walter made the house calls. But by 1950 business was booming, so the company had to expand. Walter bought property on Artesia Street and moved his operation there, where Admiral Pest Control still stands today. In the mid-20th Century, the post-WWII economy boomed, which meant people were investing in the American Dream by buying homes. These homes needed to be pest-free, so Admiral Pest Control continued to thrive. Walter’s daughter, Betty, and son-in-law, Earl Jones came on board around this time and under their leadership grew steadily through the 1960s and 1970s. 

Earl’s sons, Jeff and Brian came on board in 1977 and 1980 and continued growing the family business. “We started at the bottom,” Jeff says. “My brother and I have done every job possible in that company. So we know how Admiral Pest Control works from the ground up.” By 1987 Jeff and Brian had taken over operations. 

In 2007, Jeff’s son Trevor came on board full-time while attending college at night. Trevor followed in his father and grandfather’s footsteps working every job from the bottom up before moving to his current role as General Manager in 2017. Jeff’s daughter, Ashley, came on board in 2011 and has worked her up way from answering phones to her current role as Office Manager. Today, Trevor and Ashley run the daily operations of the business and have continued to focus on steady growth while maintaining a high level of service and customer satisfaction.

In a world where corporations rule, Admiral Pest Control defies the odds by remaining successfully family-owned and operated for 4 generations. “We are large enough to accommodate but small enough to care,” says Trevor. 

Today, Admiral Pest Control has grown its committed team, devoted to caring for our customers and providing effective pest control services to our community. We are ready to serve with a fleet of over 20 vehicles.
