Tanner Jones — I was born and raised in and around Abilene. I attended Jim Ned high school and graduated in 2013 before heading to college. I studied criminal justice to become a police officer and while doing so I got a job working for Andrew Turnbull at Bug Blasters. After a couple of years I realized how much I enjoyed this career field and the relationships I had built with the customers. Around the 4 year mark Andrew and I had a meeting and talked about me taking over the business. This was a opportunity I could not pass up and knew it would be a great path for me. We have expanded the business tremendously over the past couple of years while still keeping the same quality of service. We look forward to another 20+ years of reliable, trustworthy, personable service to Abilene and the surrounding communities.
In the fall of 1990, after my first child was born, I realized I needed a stay-at-home job instead of my highway construction job. We moved to College Station, Texas and I began working for Bug Blasters.
In 1994, my boss sold our business to Orkin. I worked for them for two more years before deciding to open my own company back home in Abilene. I owned 14 shirts that said Bug Blasters and my former boss told me I could use the name.
Bug Blasters opened in Abilene in July 1996. I incorporated my business in 2002. We have grown to three employees and two secretaries.
