Serving the Community Through Education

An opportunity for college-bound students from Temecula, Winchester, Murrieta, Wildomar, and Menifee to receive a $1,500 scholarship.

The LOCAL Bug Guy started with a mission of standing out by doing pest control the right way. 


The right way is serving the community not only with quick, reliable, and friendly service, but by building a business that encourages employees to flourish, take ownership, and feel proud of their ongoing contributions to the community they serve. 


Now more than 10 years and 6,000 customers later, we want to help inspire the next visionary to stand out and take action with the LOCAL Buy Guy Community Scholarship. 


We will award a $1,500 scholarship to one student from the local area who showcases the determination of instilling change that ultimately creates a better community for future generations.
