Philosophy: The philosophy of A-1 American and Termite is the use of Integrated Pest Management (IPM) strategies. Instead of the outdated idea of just "spraying and praying" for spider control or termite extermination, it is our belief that customers want maximum control with a minimum of use chemicals in the environment. Therefore, with IPM, we consider all the factors of the pest control program; including sanitation, baiting, trapping, competition for food, sealing access points, perimeter applications, etc. At A-1 Pest & Termite Exterminating Company we truly desire to "Safeguard your environment with cutting edge technology."
History: We have been providing Metro Tulsa and Oklahoma with termite control and pest exterminating services for more than 20 years. We provide our residential and commercial clients with the highest quality treatments done for the best prices. After representing a large local pest control company for a number of years, we ventured to start our company in 1995. It all started with one employee, one truck, and just a few customers. Our growth has been phenomenal, expanding to well over 3,000 customers.
Management: A-1 Pest & Termite is owned and managed by business partners Mark Giglia, David Emerson, and Cindy Emerson. David & Cindy Emerson own and manage several businesses that serve Oklahoma and the American Heartland. David brings over 30 years of construction experience to the company along with more than 15 years of pest control experience.

Mark has a Busines Degree in Accounting and previously did auditing in his corperate career life. He has owned and operated trading endeavors in the Tulsa area. The owners have more than 40 years of combined pest control experience. They have made the Brown Recluse Spider the focus of this pest company. A-1 is regarded as the "Brown Recluse Spider Specialist."
