We are a family owned and locally operated pest control company serving the Antelope Valley since 1988.
Owner and Father Carl Swanson started in the pest control industry in 1969 as a field technician. He was quickly promoted through the ranks up to regional manager due to his superior knowledge and commitment to his community and clients. Carl Swanson passed his operators exam and decided to start his own pest control company out of the Antelope Valley in 1988.
Corrine Swanson also started in the industry shortly after Carl, working as the office manager. Shortly after Carl started Swanson Pest Control, Corrine joined working in the office. She did all the office work, answered most of the calls, made the appointments, & set up the work. She was a big part of the core of the business. Son, Carl Swanson, had interest in the business since the beginning, but because the business was just getting started he gained employment in the pest control industry with another company for a year. After, Carl moved out of state to work in a different field, but still longed to join the family business. So in 2003, Carl and his wife, Allison Swanson, moved back to the Antelope Valley and joined the family business.
Carl brought new innovation to the company by combining many years of experience and knowledge as well as a new energy and vision. By keeping up with current technology and control methods through continuing education, and with everyone’s combined skills and talents they helped the business grow to where it is today. They all worked as a close knit family for nine years until, sadly, in November of 2012, their beloved mother and wife Corrine Swanson passed away. These were sad and hard times as her years of love and dedication helped build the company to what it is today. After Corinne’s passing, Carl Jr's wife Allison Swanson joined the family business on a part-time basis. To this day, Carl Sr., Carl Jr., Allison, and Corrine in-spirit have committed themselves to continue the journey to serve the community.
