hawx is always reliable. always innovative.


Hawx Pest Control is the undisputed leader in pest control solutions across the United States. In 2013, Hawx was founded by Scott Wilson and Matt Mehr as a customer-centric pest control company capable of changing industry norms and offering unparalleled service.

In December 2013, Scott and Matt set up their first shop in a rural location in Far West, Utah. Driven by the “How Hard Can It Be” mentality, they dove head-first into finding innovative and dedicated ways to hit the ground running.

Scott and Matt eventually partnered with JK Gleave, who brought industry experience that allowed the growing team to focus on taking their services to the next level and expanding even further. Their optimism and hard work paid off, allowing them to successfully scale from one to five locations in their first three years. 

By 2020, Hawx had 15 locations after moving into California, Texas, and across the South. In 2018, they surpassed a quarter of a million accounts serviced. This number skyrocketed to half a million accounts by the end of 2019, and finally, one million accounts in April 2020.

Today, Hawx Pest Control focuses on unparalleled service. We hire the right people at every level of the company to provide you with the best services in pest control. Hawx knows pests disrupt the productivity and safety of residential and commercial spaces, and we work hard to handle your pest problems and restore your peace of mind.


Hawx fosters a culture of excellence by focusing on our value commitments. These values are present in everything we do at every level of the company—from the professionals we send into your spaces to the account managers, administrative team, and leadership.


Every Hawx team member is expected to make the right decisions in any given situation. We believe honesty is good for business, fostering trust and reliability between team members. This inherent trust leads to greater collaboration, high productivity, and a rewarding workplace.
