A History Characterized by Family & Service

Palmetto Exterminators, Inc. was established in 1960 in Walterboro, South Carolina. In 1976, the company was purchased by Albert and Lillian Snyder and has been in the Snyder family since that time. Albert "Bud" Snyder graduated from Penn State with degrees in Education and Entomology and devoted his entire career to the pest control industry. From 1952 until 1965, Bud worked for Truly Nolen Pest Control and Orkin.

Then, from 1965 until 1975, Bud was the Training Director for Terminix. In 1976, Bud wanted to put his years of service and knowledge to work and purchased Palmetto Exterminators. During the late '70s and early '80s, Palmetto Exterminators expanded by adding locations in Beaufort and Charleston, South Carolina. In 1990, Bud and Lillian's youngest son, Bert Snyder, an entomology graduate from Clemson University, joined his parents in the family business and took responsibility for managing the Charleston location.

During the 1990s, Palmetto Exterminators expanded again to meet the demands of its customers by opening locations in Summerville and Greenville, South Carolina. In 1999, with the retirement of Lillian Snyder, son Lance Snyder joined his brother in the family business, bringing with him 15 years of experience in Accounting and Business Management. Palmetto Exterminators continued to prosper by adding three more locations - Columbia, South Carolina; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Palmetto Exterminators continued to prosper by adding three more locations - Columbia, South Carolina; Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Focusing on the values of honesty, integrity, professionalism, leadership, safety, and family instilled in them by their parents Bud and Lil Snyder, Bert and Lance Snyder have propelled Palmetto Exterminators to one of the most innovative and respected pest control companies, not only in the Carolinas and Georgia but in the United States.

Best company in the world to use for pest control! I have been using them since 2006. They are always very considerate and polite. I especially like Dave, the technician that comes out to my house in Mount Pleasant. Everyone should use these guys because they are great and better than any of the other companies I have ever used plus less expensive. Great package!

Palmetto exterminators always does a great job with our annual termite treatment. Always on time and very informative. Thank you!

- Mangums - Columbia, SC

I was happy with the attention to detail that was given as I was informed that there was a little puddle in my crawlspace that I wasn't aware of, and obviously has nothing to do with the termite treatment. It's good to know someone was paying attention and took the steps to let me know. I have used their service for years and haven't had a complaint.

- Linda - Charleston, SC

I really appreciate the young man you sent to our house yesterday to spray. He does an amazing job, better than anybody. You really have a prize in him as an employee. After he was here the time before we have not had any mosquitoes for the first time since we moved here. Be sure to keep him and always send him to our house.

My sister uses this exterminator and I was very impressed at the job Mark did and how friendly yet professional he was. Love that he was attentive to the kids while doing his job instead of just ignoring them. Seems like a very family-oriented company. Highly recommend!

- Heather S. - Edisto, SC

Brad is fantastic! He explained exactly what would be done for the ant treatment and scheduled me quickly. He was there when he said and then followed up to make sure everything was ok with the treatment. Excellent customer service!! Highly recommend Brad and Palmetto Exterminators!

- Kelsey - Myrtle Beach, SC

Professional, on time and detailed reporting on termite inspection.

- Logan - Mt. Pleasant, SC

Just wanted to comment on the termite treatment performed at my home yesterday: The employees of Palmetto were very pleasant and went above and beyond to make sure all work was of top quality. Very pleased with the services of Palmetto and their employees.

- Jan - Greenville, SC

I have been a happy customer for several years. We have a quarterly maintenance contract and they are reliable, communicative, and very professional. They show up on time, are friendly and answer all questions. When we needed help with a mouse infestation after being away for a long period of time, they were out immediately assisting with traps in and outside the home. I highly recommend their services.
