Founded in 2001 by Board Certified Entomologist Dr. Scott Lingren, our goal has been to be a pest control company that makes people feel better by providing world class service to our clients and our community. For our clients, our promise is that they will not have to worry about pests, their health, or adverse impacts on the environment. To keep this promise, Dr. Scott used Integrated pest management (IPM) to design all our pest management programs. IPM is a pest management system that originated in agriculture and takes into account the risks and benefits of all pest management decisions. Dr. Scott got his start in entomology in the cotton fields of Arizona at the age of 10 when he helped his dad, Dr. Pete Lingren, on cotton pest research.
Venus Pest Company was recognized as one of the 10 fastest growing businesses in the Brazos Valley in 2008 and 2010. In 2011, Pest Control Technology Magazine recognized Venus Pest Company as one of the Top 25 pest control companies to watch. Venus Pest Company opened a new location in Dallas in 2010.
Just like Dr. Scott learned his passion for entomology from his father, he also learned a passion for community service from him as well. From inspiring struggling students to stick with their goals to opening his house to strangers displaced by hurricanes, Dr. Pete Lingren always wanted to help people. We encourage each of employees to help people by becoming involved in a service organization. We are proud to say we have people involved in Rotary Club, Lion's Club, and The United Way's Young Leader's Society. Each of these organizations provide service to those in need locally and around the world.
By taking advantage of advances in insecticide technology, we were able to take IPM a step further in 2008, launching our Bee Green Service. The Bee Green service combines IPM with existing and newly introduced reduced risk pesticides to provide an environmentally friendly pest management service. When we launched Bee Green, we felt like we needed to walk the walk, too. We overhauled our internal and external operations to ensure our minimal daily impact on the environment. We initiated an internal recycling program, improved our insulation, stopped using ink and paper reminders, and purchased routing efficiency software. To further show our commitment, we received Green Guru certification from Brazos Valley Green and partnered with EPA's PestWise program.
