Modern Pest Control was founded in 1952 by Bill and Ruth Brashier with a service philosophy to deliver prompt, personalized pest control utilizing the latest pest control strategies and methods (hence the name “Modern”).  Over 65 years later, the Brashier family legacy thrives with a strong commitment to Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies and personal service that only an independently owned company can offer.

Our Team

Our team of pest management professionals know the pests of Greater Houston, receive rigorous training and licensed by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Our management staff is also trained by the Food Industry Sanitation Auditors (FISA) and American Institute of Baking (AIB) to solve pest issues in food handling areas. You can rest assured that all of your pest management needs will be exceeded by our highly trained commercial pest control technicians and experts.

As a QualityPro service provider, we perform, local and multi-state criminal background checks on all applicants.  QualityPro is a dynamic program that certifies companies based on comprehensive standards.

Known as “the mark of excellence in pest control,” the QualityPro designation can be achieved by ensuring that all employees voluntarily ascribe to a set of standards far above what is required by state and federal regulations.
