Protecting your home and family from pests

Welcome to Minuteman Pest Control. Pests in your home can be a major inconvenience, not to mention the possibilities of infection and sickness. At Minuteman Pest Control we provide you with environmentally responsible and dependable pest control services.

Paul DeBettencourt and Matt Zacarian founded Minuteman Pest Control in 1976. Paul, now the sole owner, is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts with extensive training in Entomology and Integrated Pest Management. In 2010 the National Pest Management Association awarded Minuteman with the Quality Pro designation, which is a national recognition of excellence in pest management.

The Pest Management Professionals, at Minuteman, understand the importance of furthering their education. They attend various workshops to expand their knowledge on the latest techniques in Integrated Pest Management. Minuteman Pest Control is one of the few companies in Massachusetts that is certified in Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
From the first contact over the phone to the honest and personal way we provide information and recommendations in the field, Minuteman will strive to achieve the best possible results at a fair price.

This approach is based on a thorough knowledge of account maintenance, sanitation, and targeted pesticide use, if necessary. As a last resort if pesticides have to be used, the least hazardous materials will be selected and targeted to the problem area.
At Minuteman Pest Control, we strive to build and maintain a strong relationship of communication and customer satisfaction. We are committed to providing our customers with the most effective pest management services available at a fair price.
