Defense Pest Control is a family owned business established by Ryan and Wendy Michel in 2006. Wendy is an Arizona native. Ryan was born and raised in Southern Alberta Canada. Wendy joinedthe US Navy and served her country for a five year enlistment. Not soon after they were married, Ryan and Wendy were transferred to Beaufort, South Carolina. During their time in South Carolina, Ryan was introduced to Pest Control for his first time. Being from Southern Alberta, Canada, the only pests he knew were mosquitoes. Shortly after their arrival to South Carolina he was hired by a family-owned franchise of Terminix International. It was here that he received excellent training and gained quality experience in pest and termite control during his employment.
Upon completion of Wendy’s enlistment they moved back to Arizona. Ryan continued working in the Pest Control industry and was employed by Safeguard Pest Control as a sales rep. Between 2003 and 2005 he dedicated himself to being the top performer in Arizona each year and among the top in the Nation.
In 2006 they started Defense Pest Control. Since then they have provided outstanding service for many families throughout the East Valley Cities and Maricopa. Defense Pest Control is dedicated to providing a pest free environment in a safe and effective manner.
