Who We Are

Our Principles

 

Established in 1978 by Benedict J. Buono Jr., Buono Pest Control Company Inc. was designed to provide a valuable service with an alternative to unnecessary chemical applications in our environment.  Starting a small family business, he believed in family first and that meant bringing the values, ethics, and health concerns into his business and to our clients.  This is still how we conduct our business today.  Specializing in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) since 1982, we stopped the routine spraying and started servicing all clients using the IPM system.  This system has provided quality pest control to all our Commercial, Institutional, Industrial, and Residential clients with a specialty in research facilities, vivariums and sensitive care areas.  We are a socially-conscious company.  We have designed a proficient program with our clients to reduce, suppress, and eliminate pests while keeping in mind concerns about health, government regulations, the environment, and concerns of our clients.
