Griffin Pest Solutions, founded in 1929, delivers innovative integrated pest management solutions to commercial and residential pest management clients in Michigan, northern Indiana and northwest Ohio

Griffin Pest Control was founded by Linden L. Griffin, Sr. in 1929. Mr. Griffin, Sr. began his career in pest control as a chemical salesman for Peterman’s Ant Food and Roach Bait. His customers consisted of restaurants and bars throughout Detroit and its various neighborhoods. As he went door to door with his products, owners would ask him to demonstrate how to use them. Since he was actually applying the chemicals himself, he began to charge for this service and Griffin Pest Control was born.

Griffin Pest Solutions has been and continues to be a leader in the pest control industry when it comes to the increasingly popular “green” movement. Griffin Pest Solutions was a pioneer in Integrated Pest Management (IPM) 27 years ago. Today, IPM is the standard at Griffin. The IMP philosophy, extensive training, and superior business practices have helped us earn our GreenPro certification from the National Pest Management Association.
