About Us

How we Started

With one truck, a home garage, and an unstoppable work ethic, Sharon Wiggs founded Advanced Pest Control, Inc. in Columbus, Ohio in 1988. By joining several trade organizations, continued research, and hands-on experience working alongside leading industry professionals, Sharon grew her reputation and owner/operator status into a full-scale facility on the Columbus west side.

One truck had grown into multiple routes, and the garage was replaced with office space and warehousing to accommodate the growing commercial and residential pest control demands.

Where we Are

Now, over 30 years later, and spanning 3 generations, the family-run company is still proud to be privately owned and operated.

In 2014 Owner Sharon along with newly appointed President, Troy Brown decided to re-brand the company to symbolize the rebirth and evolution the company has and will continue to go through as it sets it sights on the next 25 years.
