The Bug Man opened its doors in April of 1978 by two brothers, Paul & Jim Salvant.

The two boys learned the basics of their trade from their father, Jim Salvant, who owned and operated a Louisiana pest control business while the boys were young. They spent their summers working alongside their father until he sold his business when the boys were still in grade school. A few years later, Paul and Jim both went to work for other pest control companies until 1978, when they decided to open The Bug Man together. From day one, customer service was of paramount importance to the company. Professionalism, knowledge of the industry and continuing education are the guiding principles behind The Bug Man’s service offerings.
