  Our Pest Company History

Gecko Pest Control was founded in 2000 by Daren Horton, beginning in Dallas, Texas with the goal of providing professional service with a personal relationship with customers for a more pleasant and satisfactory overall experience. In 2008, Gecko Pest Control was relocated to Marshall, Texas in order to provide a local service.

By taking the drive for professionalism and personal commitment along, Gecko Pest Control has become a community pillar in the Marshall area. With a local business comes commitment to provide unmatched quality service, and that is what Gecko has continued to provide, as evidenced by the "Hometown Best" award for Pest and Termite Service Company for the last six years in a row.

The staff at Gecko Pest Control remain active members in the community, serving as volunteer Marshall firefighters, members of the Marshall Rotary and the local PTA, and remaining available to others in the Marshall area. The Gecko Pest Control office is right across the street from the Marshall post office, and our staff is ready to help with any pest problem. The situations faced may be unique, but the approach taken at Gecko is always the same: to explain the problem thoroughly and completely and recommend the most effective solution. We ensure that you have realistic expectations of the results, and we always make certain you are completely satisfied before we leave. When you have a pest control problem, call your neighbors at Gecko Pest Control, and we’ll be there for you.
