“Sometimes you gotta create what you want to be a part of.” ~ Geri Weitzman

My name is Brent Longhurst.  I am a regular person with a wife and 4 young children.  In 2011 we started LOCAL Bug Guy in the attempt to provide a level of service that you cannot find anywhere else.  We want to provide service that people cannot help but brag about and we also want to provide the types of “Jobs” that allow technicians the freedom to be their own boss and to be able to support a family in Southern California.  The only way we can provide the type of service customers cannot help but brag about is by having their “Bug Guy” be someone who could run his own business but instead decides to be a LOCAL Bug Guy.

My name is Wayne Hiebert, Jr. I’ve been living in Temecula for over 15 years. In that time I’ve seen this community grow into the awesome place that it is now. I moved here shortly after I served in the United States Marine Corps. I have an awesome wife and four equally awesome children.

I have been working for Local Bug Guy since 2014. Hands down this is the best company I’ve ever worked for. It gives me the freedom to make the correct decisions to better serve my customers. I pride myself on treating every customer as if they were my mother. I look forward to serving my customers to the best of my ability. Treating them like family and friends not just some number on a route.

Hi my name is Matt Thornton.  I am 34 years old and have a beautiful wife and a rambunctious 4 year old daughter. The main thing that initially drew me towards LOCAL Bug Guy was their commitment and interaction with their customers.  They truly treat their customers like family.  In the workplace this is rare.  Most employers will talk a great game about catering to the customer’s needs but when push comes to shove they will take your money and run.  This is an amazing company that is ran a little different than most companies.

Prior to working in Temecula I grew up and in San Diego.  I enjoy the usual Californian activities such as mountain biking, hiking, polishing rocks with my daughter, attending church, and lifting weights.  I am very blessed to be able to work for LOCAL Bug Guy.  The stress levels are minuscule to nonexistent, which is the complete opposite of companies I had worked for in the past.  This in turn gives me more energy and time to focus on customer needs.  I finally feel like I am on the right path. I am excited every morning to get up and see my customers and can’t wait to see what the future holds.

I was born and raised in Southern California and have lived in Murrieta for the last 7 years.  My girlfriend and I have 2 dogs: a Corgi/Pug mix and a Docker (Dachsund  and Cocker Spaniel Mix).  I am big fan of motor-sports and have been to every NASCAR race at the speedway in Fontana.  For some reason I am able to remember random facts about random things.

I owned my own small business before working at LOCAL Bug Guy.  I say this because as a LOCAL Bug Guy I have the freedom to take care of my customers the way I know they need to be taken care of.  My customers get to feel like they are working with a small business owner, but since I do not have to worry about dozens of other things I can focus my attention to killing their bugs and making them comfortable in their own house.

Hello, I’m Julie, the voice of the company.  When you call the Local Bug Guy office it is me you get to talk with.  I have worked with Brent since 2013 and I love my job! I love working on the phone and helping people.

When you call me because you have bugs you are going to talk with someone that has great empathy for you. I HATE BUGS and I am so scared of spiders that I cry when I see them!  And then I call my bug guy!  I am looking forward to helping you with your scary bugs!
