Bug-A-Way Pest Control: Who We Are and Why We Care

For over 30 years, Bug-A-Way Pest Control has served Southwestern Missouri & Southeast Kansas for all of its insect and pest control needs. While our services have changed and expanded greatly over the years, we will always be the family business that puts customer service first.


A Family Business

At Bug-A-Way Pest Control, we have always been proud of our focus on families and their needs. Founded in 1982, Doug Hansen brought his years of pest control experience to the business, while his wife, Mel Hansen, managed all of the office and scheduling needs. Together, Doug and Mel slowly built the Bug-A-Way brand as a business of integrity and honesty for the people of Joplin, Missouri.

Their son, Rorie, joined the family business in 2006 as a pest control expert and was honored to carry on the Hansen name and reputation into the future. Since then, the Bug-A-Way family has grown, adding Wes Davis, Jeff Fry, Paul Armstrong, Austin Woodward, Connie Ogle, Wes Chapman, & Derek Keeling to the team.


Serving Missouri

With our specialists originating from all over Southwestern Missouri, including Seneca and Neosho, we understand the pest infestation risks that families face on a regular basis better than most. We’ve incorporated this deep understanding into the extensive list of services that we are proud to offer. By offering these services for pests, termites, mosquitos, and bed bugs at an affordable rate, Bug-A-Way Pest Control’s goal is to bring peace of mind to families across our great state.

Always Improving Our Methods

Bug-A-Way’s service line reflects our years of expertise, but also our environmental concern. Our processes are always being improved to use as few chemicals as possible. In fact, our heat treatment program simply uses temperature control, rather than chemicals, to kill pests. Termite control is equally eco-smart, as our latest chemicals use half the water of other systems and cut down on water waste.
