Our History

My father, Buddy Childress, started Childress Pest Control in Des Arc, Arkansas in the late 1950’s. Quality service was the foundation on which he started the business.  It was this level of service that enabled him to quickly expand services to our neighboring counties.  For many years, Jim Musick, a long time family friend and partner, helped continue to expand the company.

Growing up in the business as a young boy, I worked during summer vacations. Upon graduating in 1980, I was eager to work full time.  During the course of the following years we continued to rapidly expand in the commercial segment of the business.  In 1988 we opened an office in North Little Rock, Arkansas and incorporated under the name Bug Masters Exterminating Co. Inc.

We provide pest control & elimination services to our expanded markets under this trade name.  Now in our third generation, our family is committed to provide the same level of service my father started out on, simply doing what you say.

I've been working with Matt for over four years now. He has been outstanding from start to finish. If we have an issue he's always available. Levi does our QA checks and has also been great. Without a doubt the best pest control company I've worked with to date!

Bug Masters is AWESOME. The Technician, Jordan is OUTSTANDING. He is laid back, professional and very easy going. He is very patient with me being that I am a new manager here at Sherwood Park. You could not ask for a better technician or pest control company.

Apartment Manager

Very professional! Showed up when he said he was, called to check in and get updates. Daniel is by far the best Pest Control person I have ever dealt with. Very knowledgeable and I learned a few things as he answered all of my questions. Its nice having one less worry. Would definitely recommend him and Bug Masters to anyone.
