Mark’s Pest Control has been servicing the Williamsburg and Peninsula areas since 1995.  We are members of the Tidewater Pest Control Association, The Virginia Pest Management Association, and The Williamsburg Chamber of Commerce.

We won the best control company in Williamsburg by The Daily Press Choice Awards in 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014!  We have also placed as one of the top pest control companies by The Virginia Gazette readers in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005 and 2004.

The Owner

Mark Woodward started the company as the only employee in 1995.  He would call customers from the truck each day and did paper work in the evening.  Needless to say, we have come a long way since then, thanks to the loyal customers that have stuck with us and referred their friends and relatives.  We now have three full time service technicians plus seasonal positions in the summer.  This allows us to provide our clients with the small business approach of personalized customer service.

We now service hundreds of home owners in Williamsburg, James City County, Toano, Lanexa, New Kent County, Charles City, Yorktown, Newport News and Hampton.  We also treat many of the area’s finest hotels, restaurants and other businesses.



The Office Staff

Jill Cox has been the business manager at Mark’s Pest Control since 2003.  She attended CNU, then graduated from VCU in 1994.  Jill is Mark’s sister and left a career as a social worker in Richmond to work at Mark’s Pest Control.  Mark sealed the deal by letting her bring her new baby to work with her for the first year, and she has been here ever since. 





Balerie Slye has been the Scheduling Coordinator with Mark’s Pest Control since the Spring of 2015.  Her bright and cheerful voice is usually the one you  will hear when you call to schedule your appointments.  She might be found in Langley on Saturdays nights with the Slye Fox Racing Team cheering her husband’s driving on!   


The Official Greeter

Emma Cox has been coming to work on a daily basis with her mom, Jill, since she was adopted from the Pen Pal Program in 2008.  She looks forward to checking her bowl every morning for treats that the guys above seem to leave for her.  She takes her roll as The Official Greeter very seriously, so if you come to our office, she will be the first happy face that you will see.





Registered Pest Control Technicians

All of our registered pest control technicians hold a registered pest control technician certificate.  We attend continuing education seminars regularly to stay on top of new information and techniques in the pest control field.  We do our very best to stay on top of changes in the industry, and to provide excellent customer service.
