Our history

For more than 95 years, Terminix has built a reputation as one of the nation’s leading providers of termite and pest control services, safeguarding over two million homes and businesses against all types of pests in 47 states and 24 countries and territories.

E. L. Bruce, owner of a hardwood flooring company in Memphis in the 1920s, was searching for a method of protecting his wood flooring from damage by termites. When his senior chemist Frank Lyons developed the first termiticide, an insecticide specifically designed to kill termites, he realized they had discovered the formula to “nix the termites.” Hence the name Terminix, and the opening of the Bruce Terminix Research Laboratory in 1927.

Terminix pioneered the system of annual termite inspections and protection contracts. In the 1950s, we were franchising across the United States. By 1990, we were the largest pest control company in the world. In 2020, Terminix, was for the first time, independently listed on the NYSE under the ticket TMX.
