Locally Owned and Operated

Terminix Triad is a family-owned franchise that has been servicing and protecting homes in the Piedmont Triad since 1932.  From the humble beginnings as a division of a hardware flooring company, E.L. Bruce Company, to now being one of the most trusted pest control companies in the industry, Terminix-Triad has come a long way. First founded by Bobby Burns and handed off to our second-generation operator, John Detgen, the franchise continued to work on becoming a reliable source for local pest control services. Today, Terminix-Triad has grown to be the 29th largest pest control company in the United States out of 18,000, according to Pest Control Technology. Burns Blackwell is now the 4th generation President and CEO of Terminix-Triad, while Harden Blackwell, who has been with the company since 1971, serves as the Chairman.
