About Us

Over the last 20 years, pest management has been simplified by most companies to a “one size fits all” model where technicians cannot identify commonly encountered pests and are not capable of intensive integrated pest management solutions.

Mostly gone are the truly superior pest control companies which operate on knowledge, training and a dedication to customer service. After years of managing operations for large and national pest companies, the leadership of Entex Pest vowed to create a pest control company that would be founded on customer-oriented service, tailored pest solutions and knowledge-based treatment strategies. Entex Pest Solutions may not fit the modern service company mold, but our very loyal customers appreciate our staff members’ knowledge, experience, and heightened attention to detail.


Entex Pest professionals are dedicated to protecting the health and safety of North Texas businesses and residents. From public health disease monitoring for numerous area towns, cities, and counties through our sister company Municipal Mosquito, to bedbug treatments in a nursing facility and rodent management in restaurants, our educated and experienced leadership and staff are deeply passionate about our role as protectors of the public health. Our employees and their families live in the very communities they help protect. Entex Pest is unique among pest management providers. Our shared level of education, industry experience, and public trust is unmatched against other area pest control companies.


Our family business is humbled by the opportunity to protect the properties, families, and businesses of North Texas.

Frequenty Asked Questions

How often should my property be treated?

Depending on the pest issues, Entex Pest will recommend a service frequency that fits your budget and expectations. Entex offers protection programs for every situation.

Does Entex Pest require a service contract?

No. Entex Pest keeps its residential customers through relationships, not contracts.

Is the Entex natural organic protection non-toxic and safe?

Since the materials we use are intended to kill pests, they are toxic to insects and similar creatures. The mammalian toxicity, or toxicity to people, is very low or almost non-existent with the natural, organic products we use.

Why should we use Entex to protect our property rather than another company?

As a medium sized company, you will get to know your pest control technician. Your technician will learn your property and the unique service concerns of your family. Entex Pest also has more resources available than a small outfit. Our structural entomologists design and supervise our treatments and are always available to inspect unique or stubborn pest issues.

Why are Entomologists an important addition to a pest management company?

Just as a foundation repair company should employ an engineer who understands how the foundations are designed and constructed, a pest management company should employ a scientist dedicated to training, best management practices, and solving stubborn new pest issues. Very few pest control companies actually employ entomologists, much less multiple entomologists. Entex Pest is a professional company dedicated to our customers and industry.
