Miller Pest & Termite celebrates its 5th year of ‘Pest-Free Holiday’


December 19, 2023

Miller Pest & TermiteMiller Pest & Termite will provide three local families with free pest control as part of celebrating its fifth year of its “Pest-Free Holiday” program.

“About five years ago, we wanted to find a way to give back to the people in our neighborhoods,” CEO Joel Miller, CEO of Miller Pest & Termite, said in the news release. “So we decided to donate services to some families who needed help getting rid of pests like bed bugs and rodents in their homes but couldn’t afford it.”

Joel Miller, alongside his wife, Jen, the chief strategic officer for Miller Pest & Termite, created the “Pest-Free Holidays” campaign in their local Des Moines, Iowa, service area to not only give back to those in need during the holidays, but make a positive impact on their community.

“We typically help two or three families every year, which might not seem like a lot, but to those families, our donation makes a world of difference,” Miller said.

Miller explained that the company’s applicant numbers grow every year, making the selection process even harder, but they hope to increase those applications significantly this year to reach further in their community.

“To me, this project is really special and something I hold close to my heart,” Jen Miller said. “It’s our way of saying thank you to our community and helping the people who have supported us. It feels incredible to be see the impact our donation truly makes on the lives of those in our community.”

As Jen Miller approaches her 10-year milestone, having been instrumental in the growth of Miller Pest & Termite for the past nine years, she is eager to spearhead other initiatives and aims to establish her presence within and beyond the pest control industry, starting with her “Pest-Free Holiday” community outreach project.

“We want to continue to see this project grow each and every year, impacting more and more lives, and perhaps even inspiring other pest control companies to do the same in their communities,” she said.

Miller Pest & Termite began their search for the next “Pest-Free Holiday” families on Dec. 1, and will continue through Dec. 22, 2023.

Families who are dealing with troublesome pests, such as rodents, bed bugs, roaches and more, without the financial means to pay for treatment will be considered and are encouraged to apply.

Qualifying families can apply for the program by filling out the form on the Miller Pest & Termite website.
