A little about us...


The year we jumped in with both feet

The patriarch of the family, Sam Sr., started Commercial Exterminators in 1978, so us kids grew up in this business. When Sam Jr. settled into North Jersey in the early 90’s things really began to take off. With one truck and a dream, we got started as Sears Authorized Pest Control and we continued to grow into what has now become Excel Pest Services.


Service programs got centered around the safest possible methods

Whenever possible, we strive to use non-chemical solutions that are the safest for children and pets. It may sound trite, but we really do treat your home as if it were our home. You’ll hear it called Integrated Pest Management. We just call it common sense.


Investments went into our customer service technology

Success made us very busy so we invested in new team members, as well as the technolgy to help them. Because your records can be seen by whomever greets you on the phone you wont be bounced around.


We completed our one millionth service

The end of the decade marked some major milestones in our slow and steady expansion. The team grew and the vehicle fleet grew to keep up. We’re now more confident than ever that we can consistently deliver the fast and friendly service your family deserves.


Proudly delivering safe pest control in our hybrid electric fleet

We can’t predict exactly what path our business will take in the next decade, but we do know what mark we’re going to land on. Our customer satisfaction will be 100% with the only reason for a customer leaving being that they moved away. Our field team will continue to be equipped with the latest tools and technology to not only be effective, but efficient as well. Stay tuned for fleet changes, as there will be many opportunities for us to further our growth in the coming years!
