One of the many benefits of running a family-owned business is getting to know the people that you work with day in and day out. We feel that our employees are really just an extension of our own family. We care deeply about each and every member of our team and work hard to support them and help them become successful in their chosen pest specialties. We help them through difficulties and rejoice with them in their accomplishments. Many of these relationships develop into long lasting career paths for those special people that are chosen to wear the Active Pest Control name. This is why we take the time each month to introduce you to a member of the Active Pest Control family. We want you to get to know some of the special people that we have the privilege of working with every day.
This month, we would like to recognize the accomplishments of Cletius (Jim) Grizzle and give you the opportunity to find out just what an exceptional man he is. His chosen specialty alone can give you some insight into who Jim really is. While some may choose to shy away from the many challenges faced when specializing in termite control, this is not the case for Jim. He welcomes the challenge that these elusive and troublesome pests pose. He has done his homework and understands their habits and habitats. He has a great eye that can quickly identify the subtle damages that termites leave as an early sign of their invasion and knows how to quickly trace their ‘tracks’ back to the heart of the infestation – the nest. He understands all that is involved to safely and effectively eliminate termites in your home or business and he has the skills to pick the right course of treatment to fit each individual situation.
Jim has been in the pest control business for more than 26 years, spending the past 7 of those years right here with us as a termite technician and is a designated certified operator. He is an integral part of the Active Pest Control team of termite specialists and loves being a part of the Active Pest Control family of professionals. Jim says, “It’s like working for your family, and they give you all the tools to be successful…you can also be yourself.”
Jim states that his favorite pest is indeed the termite! No surprise there. He meets the stress and challenges that termites present with such grace and patience. He truly is great at what he does, and we truly are very lucky to have him as part of the Active Pest Control family.
When Jim is not on the clock, you can find him with his twin boys and two lovely daughters. Being a single dad surely has its challenges, but Jim meets each one with patience and determination – we would expect nothing less from him! As a family, they love to vacation together each year and often enjoy watching movies.
If you are dealing with termites in your home, or if you want to be sure that you don’t, give us a call. You may just get to meet Jim face to face. We are certain that when you do, you will appreciate him as much as we do!
