ABOUT AKIN PEST CONTROL
Akin Pest Control & Lawn Service has been providing pest control and landscaping services to Central Texas since 2015, growing with each customer earned.
Akin Pest Control & Lawn Care began back in the spring of 2014. After several years of working on the road Trey Akin decided to take a chance and start a business that would allow him to operate from home and be closer to his friends and family.
Once you meet Trey, you’ll see how he employs a comprehensive approach to any problem, and his road to becoming a pest control expert was no different.
On top of the typical certifications and licenses to become a pest control applicator in Texas, Trey reached out to the owner of one of the highest rated and longest standing pest control experts in DFW. After days of trying to get in touch with him, Trey explained to the owner that he was looking to begin his own business and asked what he would need to do to be able to shadow and learn from his company. The company in question was multi-generational. The current owner’s father had started it decades earlier, and he explained to Trey that his father had started their company in the same way – by contacting and learning from somebody that had seen it all. Trey offered compensation for the man’s time, but he wouldn’t hear of it – he wanted to pay it forward like somebody else had done for his father years ago.
In a gesture to extend the same kind generosity and professional legacy given to his father, the owner welcomed Trey to follow and learn from him. Trey will tell you that this man was a natural teacher, and that the time spent with him enabled Trey to learn the ins and outs of pest control you just can’t get in a classroom–methods and approaches that most only learn after years of trial and error in the field. He even went as far as to drive down and supervise a few of the first large services Trey worked on, and he did it out of the goodness of his heart and his dedication to the profession. Trey embodies those traits as well, and today him and his son are providing the most capable and cutting-edge pest control services in Central Texas. Trey’s son Aaron Akin joined the team in 2019 and hit the ground running, and if you see him in the field you’ll know he’s got an eagerness to learn and is willing to do whatever it takes to provide the best service to their valued customers.
Akin Pest Control & Lawn Service has been blessed to experience success since day one, growing and expanding each year. In 2018 Jeniva Mazurek was hired to take care of office responsibilities and her organizational and customer service skills are unmatched. In 2019 the team was able to purchase a dedicated pest control van and the business continues to grow. Akin Pest Control & Lawn Service is thankful to their loyal customers and will continue to provide top of the line service in the years to come. The long-term vision for the business is for it to continue to grow roots in Central Texas, in an aim to pass it on to their sons just like Trey’s mentors’ father has done.
