Welcome to Pest Samurai!

Thomas Matthews

Thomas Matthews was the first Pest Samurai. Upon finishing his degree as a chemical technician, he started a pest control service in Delaware. The name Samurai came from his fascination with Japanese culture. After almost 40 years of success we have really developed into a family run business.

In 2018 we have decided to stop with our local services and put all of our efforts into building the best DIY online database for pest control. We really think that almost all pest infestations can be resolved by anyone if they just follow the right instructions. 

Our team has four well experienced professional pest exterminators. We have dealt with almost every type of pest infestation and our site can give you solution to any of your pest related problems. During our local service we have never used strong and toxic pest control products. We always preferred mechanical methods and natural products because some chemicals have residual effect that can cause great damage to children or pets. One of our missions is teach people not just how to get rid of pests but how to prevent annoying pest infestations.
