Biz Look: Pest Bois
A childhood friendship has grown into a thriving business partnership for Easton Miller and Tyler Vaughan. The two Edmond natives co-own Pestbois, offering weed control, pest control, and holiday lighting.
Rooted in Edmond
Easton earned a degree in horticulture and took over a family business started by his grandfather, Miller Lawn Care. He ran it as a side business while he pursued a career in oil and gas.
Over time, Easton noticed Pestbois signs in many yards he serviced. Then he discovered the owner of the pest-control business was Tyler, who he had known since second grade. “We grew up in church together,” Easton recalls, “and we both graduated from Edmond Memorial High School” Their wives were also friends and Memorial graduates.
Since they shared many customers, Easton and Tyler decided to merge their businesses in 2017.
Safe, Effective Pest and Weed Control
Pestbois takes a thorough, three-fold approach to pest control—inspection, cleaning, and treatment. They offer several different plans, including a very affordable quarterly option that covers both indoor and outdoor areas. Their weed control program is also comprehensive, so customers’ yards stay beautiful all year long. Technicians use safe, high-quality fertilizers and chemicals for all treatments.
Pestbois was one of the first local companies to offer mosquito control. Before treatment, they do a careful inspection and target areas where mosquitoes lurk, like standing water and leaf piles. They offer conventional and organic options. “We’ve established ourselves as one of the primary mosquito control services in the area,” says Easton.
Plan Now for the Holidays
Pestbois’s holiday light service is a fairly new addition to their business, and Easton recommends planning early. “It’s almost impossible to reserve someone to hang Christmas lights by October,” he says. Summer is a perfect time to book.
For customers who don’t mind getting that holiday sparkle sooner, Pestbois even offers a discount for installing lights in September.
With several months of pest and weed season still ahead of us, Easton and Tyler are happy to talk with new customers any time. Visit them at pestbois.com.
