Reliable Pest Solutions began its life in 1938, over 79 years ago as Reliable Termite Control. The original business focused exclusively on the treatment of just one insect: Termites. At that time the founder and leader at the helm was John R. Scholes. He later took on a partner in the business named Kenneth Cain.
John and Kenneth were some of the early pioneers in the treatment of termites and initiated the idea of Direct Wood Injections which was later adopted by other companies. Their business grew through hard work and sacrifice. As a result many more offices were opened over the years. Johns son, Gene Sr., joined the organization in the 1940s and became a Full Partner in the 1950s. When John Scholes passed away in 1967, Reliable Termite Control in Quincy, IL and Hannibal, MO continued under the direction of Gene Sr.
Gene Sr.s two sons, Gene Jr. and Gary, had both worked for the company while attending school. Each decided to join the firm upon the completion of their education. Soon thereafter the name was changed to Reliable Termite and Pest Control to reflect both the growing areas of service and the rapid expansion into the pest management field.
