Ron Henderson, Owner
Ron Henderson grew up in Eagle Lake, Florida where he worked at a local Winn-Dixie for 12 years. After leaving Winn-Dixie to help his father start an appliance business, he quickly found that the money he was making would not pay his bills, so Ron took a job as a manager of a rent-to-own store.
While working at the store, Ron met the owner of a Lake Wales pest control company, who later offered Ron a job. Ron worked at the pest control company for three years until the owner sold his business. During the next year Ron worked at an Auburndale pest control company until his old boss, who had, in the meantime, started Country Boy Pest Control in Sebring, offered Ron the opportunity of buying the business.
Ron purchased Country Boy without hesitation. It has been a challenging but rewarding investment for Ron, and since that day in 1990 he has never looked back.
Ron's son, Matthew, is the vice president of Country Boy Pest Control and has run the company with his father since 2002. He started working for the business at age 16. Matt is state certified in termites, general household pests, wood destroying organisms and lawn and ornamental. He is a lifelong resident of Winter Haven.
Bill is a supervisor and he is Ron's right-hand man. Bill is a state certified pest control operator who started with the company in 1995. He oversees the technicians and assists them during daily operations.
Deborah is the office manager and has been with Country Boy Pest Control since 2006. Deborah manages accounts receivable, accounts payable, payroll and general internal workings of the company.

Jason is one of 3 siblings, and has lived many places until settling here in Polk County. He is 36 years old, a "jack of all trades", and he loves continually learning (especially about biology). What does he have to say about what's important to him? "Family and friends are truly a blessing to me, and are most important...right underneath good BBQ."
