Faulkner Pest Service The times have changed. Bugs have grown smarter, faster, and far savvier. As if by prophesy, John Faulkner and Kelly Byers intuited the pending evolution more than 25 years ago and created Faulkner Pest Service to save humans from cockroaches and other tiny invaders. During visits, trained technicians create a custom plan to search out and eliminate all varieties of cranny dwellers, whether they are insects, rodents, or accidentally miniaturized mad scientists. Termite treatments take preventive action against the destructive critters, which can enter through wood beams or even the soil surrounding foundations. As a tribute to the John and Kelly’s skills, the Amarillo Globe-News has named the company Best Bug Zapper for several years running.
