We are pleased to announce that Founder of the company, Jon Quint, is pretty much retired and the business has been turned over to my grandson, Jordan Hill. He has been working with me for over three years and is quite capable of handing anything pests may throw at him. I am still available to talk to customers, and provide consultation to Jordan. The company is in good hands. Thank you for all your business over the last 25 years or so, and I hope we can continue to serve you.
Our philosophy is to use IPM (Integrated Pest Management) as much as possible, as few pesticides as possible, and to handle wildlife in the most humane way possible, while always abiding by state laws. We do not do monthly, or quarterly contracts, unless requested, because they are unnecessary and result in unneeded pesticides being spread into the environment. We will give a guarantee for a certain period of time in most cases, depending on what the problem was. We have tried to make this web site as informative and educational as possible. We hope it helps you and you will contact us if you have a problem, or want more information.
We come from the old school of customer service. We return phone calls, answer your questions, show up on time, and will return at no additional charge, until you are satisfied. We believe in "The Golden Rule"!
God bless our military!

Where did North Forty Pest Control come from? How did it get started?
I graduated from the University of Connecticut in 1964, with a major in Geology, and a minor in biology. I never used my major, but went to work in Corporate America, where I worked for 30+ years doing Production Control work at several different companies. I got laid off in 1992, and was out of work for a year and a half, got another job, and was laid off again after four months. At that point, I decided I wasn't going to be doing that anymore, so I started doing odd jobs and got a job delivering newspapers, so I could pay the bills.
I had gotten into keeping honey bees in 1986, and one of the things I did was remove honey bee hives live from buildings. I started getting calls from people in late summer saying they had honey bees, could I come take them out. I would show up and find out they had yellow jackets, which are totally different from honey bees, and don't make honey, or pollinate flowers. I had to tell the people I coudn't help them, because I wasn't licensed to kill them. It only took about two if these calls to get that little light bulb to come on over my head. I asked myself "Well, silly, why don't you go get your license". So I did! After getting my license, I talked to a friend I used to work with, who had also got into the pest control business, and he suggested I also get my Nuisance Wlidlife Control License. I figured that since I had hunted, fished, and trapped for a good part of my life that I would. Got that license with very little trouble because of my background.
My Grandson has joined the business and will be taking it over as I slowly retire. He is fully licensed by the State of Connecticut.
So here we are today, with 20+ years under my belt, and a successful business. We enjoy helping people solve their pest problems. We treat our customers the way we would want to be treated and one of our big "things" is educating customers. There is so much wrong information, and a total lack of information out in the public regarding pests, that I do my best to give people the correct information, and they are surprised to learn that a lot of times there is really nothing that has to done!
