In December of 1963, Jimmie Blackburn established Delta Termite & Pest Control, with the help and support of his wife Frankie. They built Delta based on service – service to their customers, service to the community, and service to their employees & their families.
Jimmie started the family business in the shop behind their home. He named the business Delta after his mother, Della Blackburn. His sons, Rickie & Steve, helped their parents during their high school years.
In 1979, Rickie returned to Delta, taking over the business operations in 1989. Rickie’s wife, Jeanie joined him in the office in 1996, and their 3 children, Jason, Ben, & Jan also worked in the family business during their high school years. Jason returned to Delta in 2006 and serves as Vice President and Supervisor of all routes for both branches. In early 2013, Ben joined the family business as IT & Network Coordinator.
What began as a small family business, Delta has grown into 2 offices with over 20 employees. Services and service areas have greatly expanded, but the most important constant is their “family” approach to their business: Always treat your customers, employees, and community like family.
