Military and Pest Control: When Two Worlds Combine
What do flying a plane and running a pest control company have in common? A lot, actually - according to Donnie Shelton, Owner of Triangle Pest Control.
After an impressive 14 years as an Air Force pilot, working his way up to Major in rank, Donnie is now a veteran and current member of the Air Force Reserve. When he joined the United States Air Force at age 17, he never anticipated that his years flying a Boeing KC-135R Stratotanker would give him the tenacity and discipline that would later help him with his future career in pest control.
In fact, it was those years of Air Force training that set the foundation for Triangle Pest Control’s mission to provide fast and effective pest protection for our customers and their families, and that now influence the day-to-day operations of our business.
Each of our technicians is trained to have an eye for detail and the highest regard for the safety of your family, pets, and property. We’re well-versed in the importance of process and procedure, ensuring that every member of the team has the right training and information to find the right solution for your pest control problem.
Now, after several years growing our reputation as the best pest control company serving the greater Raleigh and Charlotte, North Carolina markets, as well as Greenville, South Carolina, Triangle Pest Control is proud to call Colorado Springs our fourth home. Located mere minutes from Peterson Air Force Base and the Air Force Academy, it was a natural choice for us to expand the delivery of our prompt and professional pest control services here.
We’re excited to join the Colorado Springs community for a number of reasons, not least of which is the opportunity to expand our outreach to veteran job seekers. We know firsthand that the leadership, teamwork, and problem solving skills forged during military service are valuable, and translate well to a civilian career in pest control. We employ several veterans in our North and South Carolina offices, and hope to continue our advocacy to extend opportunity and actively recruit former military personnel within the pest control industry.
It’s an honor to be a part of a community that supports and celebrates the “Aim High ... Fly, Fight, Win” motto that defines the Air Force and aligns with many of the philosophies Triangle Pest Control was built upon. The privilege to protect your family and defend your home is not one we take lightly.
We’re also proud to extend a special discount to any new customers who have served. Save an additional $50 when you sign up for recurring pest control services if you are a member of the military (active duty or veteran).
