For more than half a century, Bugmobiles, a family-owned and operated pest control business, has served the needs of Crossroads residents. They were voted the best pest control business by readers for the 2013 Best of the Best contest.
Jim Kiening, who owns the business, said the business goes farther than just the extra mile, and that's what makes it the best.
"We go the extra two miles," he said. "You call us, and we'll try our best to get you scheduled for that day."
They strive to be customer friendly, and callers will always be greeted by a human, not a recording.
"We're humble," Kiening said. "We have a new building after 58 years. That's a commitment to the community and to our people. We'll be here for a very, very long time."
He said it comes down to their work ethic.
"We work harder than most people," Kiening said. "We're up to date on all the new techniques, and we work harder. I'm not saying these other businesses aren't good, they just don't work as hard as we do."
