Ehrlich Pest Control was founded in 1928 in Reading, Pennsylvania by Julius C. Ehrlich. Mr. Ehrlich was a salesman who sold insecticides and fogging equipment. At this time, pest control was very much a do-it-yourself venture.
When one of his customers, a department store, had no one who could apply the materials, Mr. Ehrlich offered to do it for them – a novel idea at that time.
With that gesture in 1928, Mr. Ehrlich established his new service company using the principles that still guide Ehrlich today: initiative, ingenuity and exceeding customer expectations. In these early days, the service team consisted of Mr. Ehrlich, his wife and daughter, who placed rat bait in small pieces of bread. Ehrlich became a Division of Rentokil NA in 2010 and now offers pest control services throughout the United States and Canada. We are the 3rd largest Pest Control Company in America.
In addition to Home Pest Control and Commercial Pest Control, the company offers Termite Control, Bird Control Service, Vegetation Management, and Bioremediation in commercial kitchens, Wildlife Management, and Odor Control.
The State College office has been in existence for nearly 50 years.
