Trust the Awarded Pest Control Company
In 2009, ATCO Pest Control won the IPM Innovators Award from the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR), and they followed that up by contributing to the 2011 award by DPR to Marin County Parks. Marin County Parks won this award, and ATCO is a major contributor to Marin County Parks reducing its pesticide and rodenticide usage by over 80%.
How We Became What We Are Now
Both Richard and Estella grew up in Iowa, and after getting married, they moved to California. After starting a commercial cleaning business with Estella, Richard began work with ATCO in 1997, and soon let the owner know he would like to acquire the company. In 2003, he and Estella bought the company, and have been growing since then. Richard is primarily responsible for the training and operations of the company, and Estella is primarily responsible for the administration and logistics side of the business.
