Company History:

Gafford Pest Control Services was founded in the Spring of 1973. Over the years the business has grown from a one man operation to one of the largest pest control service companies in West Texas with a focus on Lubbock pest control. This growth can be attributed to many things, but above all else great customer service is our priority and has become the principal philosophy of our business. Gafford Pest Control Services, Inc. has become a leader in all aspects of pest and termite control methods. By utilizing the latest IPM (Integrated Pest Management) techniques, chemical treatment methods, and products we can offer our services to the most sensitive of clients.

In the early years of Gafford Pest Control, the company operated under various names as it merged or became partners with other local pest control firms in West Texas. As time went on Gafford Pest Control always emerged the dominant company in these unions.

Presently, Tim Gafford and his wife Belinda own and operate the family business. Tim received the opportunity of a lifetime when his uncles decided to retire, and that was to own and operate his own business. In the fall of 1994, Tim and Belinda took over the family business and changed the name to Gafford Pest Control Services, Inc., which it remains as of today. Tim graduated from Texas Tech University in 1979, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Entomology. During his time at Texas Tech University Tim worked for his uncle Bill Gafford who provided encouragement and great influence that helped guide him in to the pest control industry. Following his graduation, Tim went to work in the chemical distribution business with one largest chemical distribution companies in the nation that also specialized in pest control supplies for 15 years across the United States. This experience presented a vast amount of knowledge and insight into the pest control industry which would prove to be useful in the days to come providing pest control service in Lubbock, TX.

Also involved in the family business is Wayne Barado, Tim’s stepson who has worked for the company since 1995. Wayne began working for Gafford Pest Control Services, Inc. in the Summer of 1995 while on vacation from college where he attended Illinois State University, with the intentions of going back to school in the fall. After spending an entire summer in West Texas and being on or around Texas Tech University the easy choice was made to stay. Wayne attended Texas Tech University and graduated in 1999 with a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology while continuing to gain immeasurable experience and knowledge of the pest control industry while working at Gafford Pest Control Services, Inc. In the years that followed Wayne eventually attained Associate Certified Entomologist (A.C.E.) status which shows his dedication and passion for the pest control industry.

Music is my passion and I love to do business with people who are passionate about their businesses. I have been friends with Tim Gafford for years and would not trust anyone else with my pest needs.

Abuelo’s Lubbock has been long term customers and friends with Gafford Pest Control. We have been customers of theirs since we opened the doors in 1989 and have never had any issues. Obviously we have had insect and rodent issues in that amount of time but when we did it was fixed immediately and without for concern for what time or day of the week it was. When I have had minor issues and called on weekends and after hours that was also addressed immediately. The main point I want to make is with the preventative maintenance programs Gafford Pest has in place for my facility I very rarely have a problem but when I do it is addressed immediately. I would highly recommend them to any person or company that wants to do business with a class organization.

AG Rentals, LTD has been working with Gafford Pest Control for over 25 years. They truly lead the pest control industry in West Texas with their superior and efficient service. They have recently updated their processes which make it even easier for our company to track problems and work on being pro-active in containing pest control issues before they ever become an actual problem. We highly recommend Gafford for all of your pest control, weed control, fertilizing and chemical yard maintenance needs.

Isabel and I have been very pleased by service from Gafford Pest Control. The landscape and house perimeter spraying has been extremely useful. We’ve a beautiful Golden Rain tree which shades our south patio entertainment area but, this tree attracts a certain type of bug by the thousands. Gafford sprays the area in the spring and mid- to late-summer and no more bugs – it is a huge benefit to our enjoying our home. Each person who has come out to spray has been well beyond the quality of those I’ve seen from other companies (may neighbor says the same too!)
