Phil has been with Integrated Pest Management since 2010. Phil is a native Houstonian who wins the prize for the employee who travels the furthest to work each day. We like to think it's because he loves us. He really enjoys talking to people. It gives him a chance to use that dry sense of humor he has. Phil is a proud dad who loves spending time with his kids. In his spare time you might find him hitting a few golf balls around.
Don’t let Dylan’s youth fool you. He’s been a pest control guy for as long as he can remember. You could say the pest control business is in his DNA. His dad is our General Manager Jeff and his grandfather is Bob McQueen, co-owner of Integrated Pest Management, Inc. Dylan likes to say, “If it’s got to die, I’m your guy.” Dylan was born in Indiana, but has spent most of his life in Sugar Land, TX. He sure keeps himself busy. He’s an avid baseball fan who has coached his brother’s Little League team and plays on a league himself. He also enjoys fishing and rock climbing. In addition to his athletic hobbies, this ambitious young man also takes classes at Houston Community College.
This soft-spoken, easy going Houstonian was born in Orange, TX. Interesting fact, Orange has the distinction of being the easternmost city in Texas. Alford loves the great outdoors and working on cars and hot rods, especially his 1982 Dodge truck. He proudly served in the US Military in the early 70s. Alford has been in the pest control business for over 15 years. His experience is apparent as he assists each customer throughout the day. His motto is, "Do your best, no matter what." We like how he thinks!
Mike was born in Dunedin, FL (that's near Clearwater), but has spent most of his life right here in Houston. As with most of our team, Mike is a real Handy Man & Jack-of-all-trades. He loves to tinker with all things mechanical. In his spare time he plays rhythm guitar & sings back-up vocals in a local band. His favorite hobby though, is being a dad. Mike and his wife have two young sons.
Andy is the most recent addition to the Integrated Pest family. He is a native son, born in Houston, now lives right here in Richmond. He is the proud dad of a teenage daughter and 2 step-sons. Andy joined our team after running his own house-painting business for 20 years. He knows all about customer service. In his spare time Andy plays guitar (a life-long passion), tends Bonsai Trees (how interesting is that?), and he loves a good book. His life philosophy: "If you're on time, you're late. Bring a book." We always ask our employees, "If Integrated Pest had a theme song, what would it be?" Andy picked "Flight of the Bumble Bee." Interesting choice.
We are keeping it local with the latest addition to our team. Joe was born & raised in the Richmond/Rosenberg area. In his spare time he likes to have fun and travel with his kids. The creative spirit seems to run strong through our team. Joe is an artist, videographer, and painter. Joe's philosophy, "Let go, let God." He says if IPMI had a theme song it would be Bob Marley's "Every little thing's gonna be alright."
Of all our technicians, Daniel has been with us the longest. He started with Integrated Pest Mgmt. way back in 2003. You could say Daniel has grown up with us. He has been in the pest control business his entire adult life. Daniel is a homegrown guy, having spent most of his life in "The Berg" Rosenberg. He is a proud father who loves good family fun. He also enjoys home projects & renovation, fishing and shooting.
If you stop by our store in Richmond, Jeff will most likely be the first face you see. Jeff has over 20 years experience in the pest control industry. You could say he was born to be a bug-man. His dad is Bob McQueen, co-owner of Integrated Pest Management, Inc. If you are one of our service customers, you may also meet his oldest son Dylan, third generation bug-man. Jeff’s depth of knowledge is quickly apparent as he takes time to answer your questions and offer advice, whether in person or on the phone. Jeff is married, has two sons & a daughter. In true McQueen style, hanging out with family is one of his favorite activities.
You could say I am the “voice” of Integrated Pest Management, Inc. when it comes to the newsletter, social media posts, website, advertising or reminder cards. My goal is always to keep you, our valued customers, informed and when possible entertained. I am a proud Purdue University graduate with a Communication degree. I’ve been here since October 2015. Who knew insects & rodents could be so interesting. I have become very involved with Greater Houston Pest Control Association. As a matter-of-fact I will be the president of the organization for 2020. My husband & I returned to Houston after living in NW Indiana near Chicago almost 30 years. Our two daughters are grown & we were tired of the cold. Sure it gets hot here, but I like to say, you don’t have to shovel hot. It’s good to be back in Texas and close to family. I'm a little obsessed with visual & performing arts. I currently belong to 2 art leagues & take tap dance classes.
Adriana was a most welcome addition to our team this past June when we were all going a little crazy with our software transition. She comes to us from the banking industry and now that our long-time employee, Shirley, retired, Adriana handles most of our accounts receivable. Adriana was born in Houston, but now calls El Campo home (rivaling Phil for furthest distance traveled). As with Phil, we like to think it's because she loves us. Adriana loves spending time with her husband and family. That's a good thing because she has 10 grandchildren! Let that sink in... She recently started to crochet and is working on a blanket. That's a solid Grandma activity right..LOL? An added bonus for our business is that Adriana speaks fluent Spanish. Her life philosophy is, "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...It's learning to dance in the rain."
Tonya is the newest member of the Integrated Pest family. We're so excited to have her on board. Her primary responsibility is scheduling, but as with all of us in the office, she wears multiple hats. She was born in Galveston, and has spent most of life in East Texas near Beaumont. As with most of our team she loves spending time with the family. Between Tonya and her fiance, they have 8 children and 3 grandchildren. Here's a fun fact about our Ms.Tonya. She runs and hosts pool tournaments. That's right! She's proud to say that her team recently participated in the APA Captains Team World Championship in Vegas and placed 33rd out of 375 teams. Remind me not to play pool with her. Her life philosophy is, "Life has no remote. Get up and change it yourself."
Smokey wandered into our lives as a stray around 2015. She was very pregnant and had a litter of kittens shortly after arriving. We found homes for all her kittens, but she refused to get along with anyone else's animals. She is now our company mascot and a very friendly permanent fixture around the office.
As with many Houstonian’s, Bob is a Texas transplant. He grew up in central Indiana surrounded by a large, tight-knit family, but his roots have been firmly planted in Texas for most of his adult life. Bob is an avid reader, master gardener & physical fitness enthusiast. He is a proud dad and grandfather. As a matter-of-fact his son Jeff and grandson Dylan both work at Integrated Pest. Family time and family vacations are among his favorite things. Fun fact, Bob & his wife Lynette are about to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary. His life philosophy is one that keeps coming up among our staff. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
Even though Frank has lived in Texas since the tender age of 17, it's no secret he was born in New York. Mineola, to be exact, just "spittin' distance" from the heart of NYC. He is a loving family man with a big personality. He is passionate about everything he does. That includes gardening, scuba diving, golf, watching sports and most recently traveling with his wife and twin teenaged daughters as they climb through the ranks in competitive soccer. Exciting stuff there! His motto is, "treat people the way you want to be treated." There's that Golden Rule again.
