Prior to opening Russell’s Pest Control in November 1971, Russell Bull began his career with a nationally-known pest control company. In the midst of a corporate buyout, Russell determined it was time to start the company he had always dreamed of owning.
His new adventure was based on his desire to serve his community by providing quality service at a fair price. In honor of his mother, who raised nine sons after her husband passed away, Russell was also determined to support his community by assisting the widows and elderly of Knoxville.
For the next 26 years, Russell’s and Bobbie Bull ran the company, in 1997 their daughter, Vickie Bull Nadolski and her husband Mark, moved to Knoxville to help run the business. Since Mr. Bull’s passing, along with Mrs. Bull, Vickie and Mark have lead the company continuing to grow it into the community name it is today
In December of 2011 Vickie and Mark officially took ownership of Russell’s Pest Control. While this generation has incorporated new technology and new products, the vision for the company remains one of quality service at a fair price with a keen eye focused on the needs of the community in which we work.
Since 1971, Russell’s Pest Control has established its reputation as one of the leading pest control companies in the Knoxville area. For nearly 50 years, the vision for the company remains one of quality service at a fair price with a keen eye focused on the needs of the community in which we work.
