A Little History

Founded by Sue and Elliott Hollingsworth, we opened our doors on March 1st, 1996 with 2 employees and one office. Within 25 years, we have grown into 80 employees and 3 locations across Southeastern NC. By year-end 2020, we were named by Pest Control Technology Magazine as one of the Top 100 pest control companies in the United States and have been named as such every year thereafter. 

Now owned and operated by their son Stan Hollingsworth, Bug-N-A-Rug’s roots run deep in the Wilmington NC area. Stan, a boating enthusiast, takes pride in captaining a local family-owned company where people can come and be successful, have educational opportunities, and grow within. 

What Matters Most

Our business philosophy is to provide the best quality service at prices that reflect the true value of that service. We continually look for new ways to provide service and knowledge needed to solve customer problems. Always in constant training and research, Bug-N-A-Rug prides ourself on having the most qualified staff equipped with the best tools to treat any situation. We sincerely appreciate all of our customers and do our very best to meet customer expectations. This, you can count on.

We are committed to supporting the community we serve. By fostering a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion we strive to ensure all employees feel equally involved and supported in all areas of the workplace. As well as supporting and encouraging our employees, we find it equally important to support the community at large, proudly donating to local organizations such as Nourish NC, Family Promise of Lower Cape Fear, A Safe Place, Food Bank CENC, Lower Cape Fear LifeCare, and many others. 

Our company was founded and built on the foundations of community and family. Our pledge to customers and community alike is to continue to live by this philosophy through our philanthropy and providing topmost customer service possible each and every day.
