MAY, 1968
It all started in 1968 when Leo DiDonato purchased American Termite Control Co. after
many years of working in the business and learning the trade from his predecessor.
The company at the time consisted of two hundred and fifty-five accounts together with 
Goodwill and one 1962 Ford Econoline Van.

The purchase price of the company was a mere $9,000 in 1968, today's equivalent of $62,794 after inflation.

Advance Pest Control (Suffolk Exterminating Co., Inc.) continued through the years building
it's reputation on the hard work, honesty, dedication and family oriented philosophy that has lead
to thousands of satisfied customers and significant customer retention year after year.

In 2000, the business ownership was passed on to the next generation and continued the family tradition under ownership by Steven and Patti Gehrke.  

We hope you enjoy our website and look forward to continuing the tradition of honesty, integrity and unyielding service to all of Suffolk County and Fire Island for many years to come.
