Who Comes to Your Door from Fox Pest Control?

"[My work] makes me feel grateful for what I do have."

If you're in the Lubbock area and you need pest control, there is no one better to do it than Emmanuel Gaytan and his team.

And when you need pest control, it can be a serious emergency. When you have a situation in your home, it can be a serious hazard to your health and your home.

  • Pests like mosquitoes can spread diseases, including malaria, Zika Virus, West Nile Virus, and other illnesses.
  • Pests can damage homes and businesses. Termites alone are responsible for billions of dollars in home damage every year.

Not to mention the emotional distress that caused to you when you find bed bugs or carpet beetles in your room or on the bed.

When you call Fox Pest Control, all that worry can be washed off, sprayed, and ultimately exterminated along with the pests.

You might wonder who comes to your door and what sort of service you can expect. When you call on Fox, you call on Emmanuel and his team.

Conversation with Fox Pest Pro Technician Emmanuel Gaytan

Emmanuel started with Fox in April of 2014. Since then, he has only improved Fox as a company.

"I used to work in the oil fields before this," says Emmanuel. "When I started working with Fox … I realized it was a really good company to work with."

He has only gone up from there.

Beginnings of Greatness

Training under Mickey Magar, branch manager of Midland, TX, and Jace Anderson, who partnered with Fox and owns the Midland branch, Emmanuel grew quickly.

"When I came to work with Fox, it was more hands-on: Learn, continue to keep learning everything you needed to learn," he continues. "And freedom. That was the biggest thing. You have the freedom to learn as much as you can and then move up."

As Emmanuel grew and learned, his supervisors and everyone around him increased in their respect toward him.

When asked about his work, Emmanuel said, "Makes me feel grateful for what I have."

Some people approach the world with a feeling of entitlement, but Emmanuel Gaytan shows more spirit and more heart and soul.

From Technician to Manager

Today, Emmanuel manages the Fox branch in the Lubbock area. Here at Fox, Emmanuel says, "You have the freedom to learn as much as you can … They've given me the responsibility to do what I need to do [as a manager]."

When talking about Fox and their ability to see people's potential and their willingness to extend leadership positions to the right people, Emmanuel says, "If you have the right morals and the right responsibilities and everything you need to move up in life, they're gonna give it to you."

From the co-founders, Mike Romney and Bryant White, to partners like Jace Anderson, our values of leadership, putting relationships first, and showing kindness toward everyone are instilled in every pest pro, like Emmanuel, and are communicated directly to our customers.

Only those who demonstrate Emmanuel's willingness to demonstrate gratitude, responsibility in personal and professional life, and good morality are allowed to work on Emmanuel's team.

That's why our services make our customers stop and say in approval and amazement, "Wow."

What is a Pest Pro Technician's Favorite Bug?

When asked which pest is his favorite, Emmanual said, "I guess my favorite pest would be spiders. There are spiders you see that have really beautiful colors."

So when you find an infestation in your garden, shed, garage, or firewood pile, there's someone out there who doesn't get squeamish around them and has the knowledge and ability to get them out of your home.

Emmanuel reassures his customers: "Just because they look crazy doesn't mean they actually are crazy."

When asked what his least favorite bug was, Emmanuel instantly responded with, "Bed bugs. Last night, I checked my whole entire [hotel] room for bed bugs because I've seen what they can do … They don't discriminate against anybody."

Advice from a Pest Pro Technician

Homeowners can depend on Emmanuel or his team when they come across anything, from bed bugs to cockroaches or ants.

When asked what advice he would give to potential customers to do about bed bugs, he said, "Check your room. You can ask one of our technicians or myself what you have to do. …. Our technicians are certified and know what they're talking about. It's a pretty simple process to know what you're looking for. If you find those [signs] of bed bugs … or if you find a bed bug … then leave your hotel."

Our technicians have the knowledge and experience needed to help you right away.

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
