Sam is a legend in the Pest Industry for his commitment to the education of the community as well as his loyalty to professionalism and safety for all the communities U.S. Pest serves. He started U.S. Pest over 27 years ago and built it into the largest independently owned pest and termite control company in Tennessee!
Sam was at the forefront of the fight at the State Capital to change Tennessee’s laws to require pest companies to follow the label specifications on chemicals rather than the minimum standards supplied by the government. On his watch, chlordane and all carcinogens were banned from use. Large corporations finally began to be charged for their retail sales. And the Feed Bill was passed so that money earned by the pest industry went to a special fund for the Department of Agriculture rather than the state’s general fund.
Sam Peden is well respected in the pest industry. Whenothers see him coming, they know that they will be dealing with a man who, at his heart, believes in all the good this industry can and has done. His passion brings out our best!
