We often hear about “family owned businesses” and the wisdom of patronizing a company that can track its history back to the founding fathers. Circle S Pest Control is one of those businesses. In 2002, a man named Dale Bagby, whose philosophy was simply “quality over quantity” purchased Circle S Pest Control from Forest Spencer. Forest founded Circle S more than 30 years ago and shared similar philosophies. He and Dale both thoroughly enjoyed the industry and the opportunities it provided to meet and help people in their community.
It is important in today’s culture to be able to trust that the services we receive are of the highest quality and that the people we interact with are trustworthy and have our best interests at heart. Dale Bagby stands out as one of those rare individuals who understood the meaning of the words honor and integrity. His legacy and influence remains today in multiple family businesses, one of which is Circle S Pest Control in Burnet Texas. He began his career in pest control in Austin and worked for several major companies before deciding to open his own business. While some men might have taken advantage of a previous company’s customer base, Dale personally knocked on doors to bring in new customers rather than take any from his past employers. As his business began to grow and expand Dale never abandoned his belief systems and was known to even offer service at no cost for a client that might be suffering financial hardship with the premise that he wanted to try a new product to see how it worked.
Although Dale Bagby passed away in 2017, Tami Hood, one of his seven daughters and owner of Circle S Pest Control, is walking proudly in his very large footsteps and continuing his traditions. Her first priority it to take care of the client with professionalism, highly trained technicians and unsurpassed customer service. Tami states that ,”I am blessed to carry on the legacy of my Dad” and based on the fact that Circle S Pest Control is always at the top in the local Reader’s Choice Awards, she has achieved that goal.
Continued success in any business requires consistently moving forward with a dedication to keeping abreast of the latest technology. This is true even in pest control. In the beginning, the only tools necessary were a truck and a sprayer. All of that has changed as newer and safer products have been developed, as well as sophisticated ways to control not only the indoor environment, but also our outdoor living areas. Circle S Pest Control is the exclusive authorized dealer within a 100-mile radius of Central Texas for “Spider Be Gone Systems”, an automatic insect control misting system for spiders, wasps and mosquitos for homes, patios, decks and boat docks. Skillfully trained technicians will customize the system for your specific property making your valuable outdoor living time even more enjoyable. According to Tami, “it’s like having a pest control technician spray every night while you sleep.” The system is also recommended for farms, ranches and any area that houses livestock.
When we think of termites, we usually think only about the inspection required before buying a home, but Central Texas is a breeding ground for subterranean termites. To protect your investment Tami recommends an annual inspection, or even preventive treatment to avoid subsequent infestation. Other common pests in our area are scorpions, roaches and fire ants. Different seasons bring different problems, including grasshoppers, crickets and webworms. Since these are all part of living in the magnificent Texas Hill Country, it is comforting to know that someone has the right solution for controlling these pests in and around our homes and businesses, as well as farms and ranches. Circle S Pest Control services Burnet, Marble Falls, Kingsland, Horseshoe Bay, the surrounding communities and beyond. With the Spider Be Gone Systems sales and service, Circle S travels as far as Brady and New Braunfels to take care of customers with the same integrity that Dale Bagby demonstrated for 54 years in the pest control industry. “Taking care of people first”, a philosophy that he would have completely agreed with, is still the driving force behind Circle S Pest Control.
