In 1983, Gary Kindell realized a need for total pest elimination without long-term contracts in his home town of Piqua, Ohio, so he, and his two daughters, Wendy and Dawn, obtained their state licenses and Bug-A-Boo was born.

The business grew and soon termite and mosquito services were added. Adding to its residential service, Bug-A-Boo expanded to support commercial, industrial and municipal clients as well.

In 1988, Gary Kindell retired to the Florida Keys, where he resides today. Upon Gary’s retirement, Wendy and Dawn took over Bug-A-Boo Pest Control, until Wendy left the company in 1989 to pursue a nursing career in California.

Dawn purchased Bug-A-Boo that same year and has continued managing and growing the business to this day, adding bed bug services and a retail outlet for Bug-A-Boo customers.

Being a family owned business from the beginning, Bug-A-Boo has benefited its customers in Miami Valley and some surrounding areas by sticking to one simple mission – Provided total pest elimination at an affordable price, without long-term contracts.

We take great pride in being honest and fair to our customers, treating them as part of the Bug-A-Boo family. Because of this, we have established many cherished friendships over the years, friendships founded on mutual trust.
