Wayne, N.J.-based Mrs.Bzzz Pest & Termite Solutions has opened a second location in Walden, N.Y.
The company currently services northern to southern New Jersey. The new branch serves the Hudson Valley in New York, which consists of the counties in Orange, Ulster, Dutchess and Sullivan. This branch will be operated by managing partners Anthony and Tommy Romeo.
Mrs.Bzzz Pest and Termite Solutions was founded in 2013 by Benette Devera. In June 2022, her husband, Brian Devera, has became her partner and oversees the entire operation.
“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy,” Brian DeVera said in a news release.
Founded by 20-year-plus industry veteran Benetté DeVera, Mrs. Bzzz (pronounced Bees) currently serves the New Jersey counties of Passaic, Bergen, Essex, Morris and Sussex. Per a blog post about the “real Mrs.Bzzz” on the company’s website, Benetté and her husband, Brian, first started in pest control in Montgomery, N.Y., running Shamrock Pest Management out of a two-bedroom apartment and building it to a regional-sized firm that they sold in 2008. They started anew in Naples, Fla., with Shamrock Pest Management, which continues today with a different owner.
Because they were missing their extended family, the DeVeras and their three sons returned home to New Jersey. (As Benetté jokes in the post, “I know, some of you are wondering why the hell come back up north? Sometimes we ask the same question.”)
In 2013, Mrs.Bzzz Pest & Termite Solutions launched in Wayne, N.J. — “a full service pest control company that handles all insects, termites, rodents, and wildlife. They offer service to residential homes, commercial, and industrial businesses.”
