Our History

Holder’s Pest Solutions, formerly Holder’s Pest Control Company, was founded in 1947 in Houston, Texas, by Lonnie Holder, who had served in the Navy during World War II where he was among the first to mix DDT.

In 1958, Lonnie Holder helped form Copesan Nationwide Pest Control Services. Copesan’s sole purpose was to provide stockholder companies the ability to sell and service national pest control programs. Since then, Copesan – Specialists in Pest Solutions, has become an organization with over 325 service centers throughout North America and the Caribbean.

Although Holder’s never used a formal advertising campaign, the company grew steadily throughout the 1960s and 70s into a multi-million dollar operation. Holder’s Company Philosophy — to provide our clients with the highest degree of personal service, outstanding performance and unconditional satisfaction — fueled this steady growth through satisfied clients and positive word-of-mouth. In 1983, Mr. Holder retired and sold Holder’s Pest Control Company to Copesan.

At Holder’s, we realize that our future depends on our ability to provide the most effective service to our clients. For that reason, our entire service team is continually educated and updated on the latest developments and issues within the pest management industry. Our clients have come to expect it and our future clients will as well.

In 2012, Holder’s Pest Control changed the name of the company to Holder’s Pest Solutions. With this change, Holder’s decided to retire the iconic logo of Bubba the Roach and bring in a new professional and clean logo.  This change was made to reflect the new philosophy of providing pest solutions to our clients, both residential and commercial, in addition to a new focus on providing the highest level of quality service and high level of accountability throughout our business.

Holder’s is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Copesan Services, Inc. Copesan is an alliance of premier pest management companies that are united as a single entity for the sole purpose of providing quality pest solutions to businesses with locations throughout North America.
