Family Owned & Operated Also serving Chesapeake Pest Control, Portsmouth Pest Control, Smithfield Pest Control Suffolk Pest Control was established in 1982 by Harold E. (Jerry) Putman as a sole proprietorship. Jerry and his wife, Shelby operated from their home in Suffolk for the first three years. Shelby answered the phone and took work orders while also working in her hair salon. Jerry worked the pest control appointments alone until it was more than he could keep up with. He then hired Rex Millena who is still with us today. Jerry’s daughter, Donna started working with Jerry as the business began to grow. In 1985 Suffolk Pest Control moved to an office located in Downtown Suffolk. The business maintained four full-time employees. Suffolk Pest Control’s honest reputation began to spread by word of mouth. Soon, they were working in other surrounding cities. In January 2000 Jerry Putman decided to retire. Suffolk Pest Control was sold to Jerry’s daughter and son-in-law, Donna and Fairren Huneycutt. The company became incorporated with Donna serving as President and Fairren as Vice President. Fairren started in the insulation business in 1978 by opening Nansemond Insulation Company. His experience with insulation provided additional knowledge of moisture conditions in the understructure, sidewalls, and attics. Nansemond Insulation gradually grew into Nansemond Exteriors Inc. specializing in exterior remodeling, replacement windows, siding & trim. Today Fairren & Donna operate both Suffolk Pest Control Inc. and Nansemond Exteriors Inc. from their conveniently located office at 3508 Robs Drive, Suffolk VA 23434 (across from Nansemond Suffolk Academy).

What Makes Us Different
1.) Suffolk Pest Control is not a franchise. We are family-owned and operated. We have maintained a good reputation for the past 29 years in the city of Suffolk and surrounding areas. We strive for 100% satisfaction for each and every customer.
2.) Honesty is a job requirement for employees of Suffolk Pest Control. Our technicians are provided Polaroid cameras and film. Pictures are submitted along with proposals and treatment recommendations. This eliminates the possibility of an unsubstantiated need for treatment or false reporting. We trust our technicians; however, we provide this extra measure of security for your peace of mind.
3.) Our technicians are more educated than most. We require them to be certified by the Virginia Department of Agriculture in categories 60 (registered technician), 7-A (general pest control), 7-B (wood destroying pest control), and 7-C (fumigations). Our technicians are also certified by the Virginia Pest Management Association as a wood destroying insect inspector. Both of our inspectors are certified Pest Management Technicians.
We recommend that when searching for a pest control company, you should ask the following questions:
a.) What certifications does the inspector have?
b.) How long has the inspector been with the company?
c.) Will I receive pictures along with proposals for treatments? If you are still unsure after the inspection, call another company for a second opinion. Suffolk Pest Control provides free second opinions. Just give us a call.

Re: Brandon Floyd To Whom It May Concern: We purchased our home in July of 2002 and called you to fully spray its interior and exterior prior to our move in. We were so impressed with your attention to detail and diligence that we requested you provide us with general pest control on a regular basis. Your employee, Brandon Floyd, has been performing this task quarterly for us since then and when necessary, additional specific services. We are so thankful that Brandon was the technician sent to represent your company. He answered all of our questions and because we were unfamiliar with Virginia they were voluminous. His profound knowledge of his craft is unquestionable and has been tested on occasion. Brandon has professionally and enthusiastically captured bee hives and he successfully eliminates the spiders from the eaves. On the interior, Brandon meticulously sprays around our wooden baseboards without leaving a residue on the finished trim. He performs effortlessly with a positive attitude, always arriving on time. Please be assured that Brandon’s cheerful demeanor and his professionalism is recognized, admired and genuinely appreciated. He exhibits exceptional characteristics and is a true asset to your organization. We will not hesitate to contact you for any and all of our treatment requirements. Thank you for allowing us to recognize him through this letter to you. Sincerely, Charli and Chuck Leon
