A Reputation You can be Proud of
The reputation of the company you work for matters. And you can be proud to say you work for Adam’s Pest Control. As one of the largest and most well-known local pest control companies, your friends and family are probably already familiar with our brand. We are known for our professionalism and expertise, our past success, and our community involvement. Adam’s employees are regularly called by the national pest control industry to serve in positions of leadership; and local news agencies look for Adam’s to share its expertise and accurate pest information.
Adam’s also enjoys a reputation for giving back to the community. Adam’s Cares is an internal program that financially supports charities that are important to our employees. In addition, Adam’s supports many local, national and international nonprofit organizations, including local community events and sports teams, the Animal Humane Society, the University of Minnesota Dept. of Entomology, Toys for Tots, and Nothing But Nets.

Steady growth and financial stability benefits every employee with security, peace of mind, and new opportunities.

A Legacy of Innovation
Innovation stimulates growth and expands opportunities. We believe to stay competitive in an ever-changing world, we must constantly innovate, challenge the norms, and encourage new ideas. We call this philosophy our Constant and Never-ending Improvement - or CANI -- process. We welcome you to be part of Adam’s ongoing quest to be the best.
Innovation is in Adam’s DNA. We have a long history of innovation beginning with creating the “Do All” – a device that snapped onto the bottom of a one-gallon compressed air sprayer and was designed to carry tools and insecticide refills -- and the Fireplace Animal Rescue Unit, used to catch small animals in chimneys. Adam’s was also the first pest control company in Minnesota - and one of the first in the country - to use heat to kill bed bugs; and was the first pest control company in Minnesota with two nationally certified bed bug detection dogs.
Adam’s Demonstrates its Environmental Consciousness
At first, environmental consciousness and conservancy may seem inconsistent with a pest management company, but not when that company is Adam’s Pest Control. As an early adopter of Integrated Pest Management, Adam’s was the first pest control company in the nation to offer GreenPro-certified services under the National Pest Management Association’s new, higher standards.
It also shouldn’t be surprising that Adam’s is an advocate for protecting bees and other pollinators. We championed getting the local ordinances changed to allow beekeeping on commercial properties. Adam’s began beekeeping in June, 2019 when we first introduced approximately 12,000 bees to their new hive. The hive is located in the rear corner of Adam’s property with access to a large wetlands area and nearby farms.
