About Us

Get to Know A-Action Pest Control!

A-Action Pest Control was built on the foundation of the love and support of family. In 1988, Douglas M. Duty started the business, his wife Jacqueline cheering him on from the sidelines. When their daughter Cheri took over as owner 19 years later, her mother continued to be an unwavering source of support, carrying business cards with her and “talking up” the family business whenever she had the chance.

In 2014, Cheri and her husband Adam purchased a building in Antioch that would become home to A-Action. At the same time, Jacqueline had been diagnosed with cancer. As a final act of support for her family and their business, she surprised them with the gift of an engraved “A-Action Pest Control” bench to welcome visitors outside of the office and commemorate the success of the business. After she passed away in 2015, Adam had it engraved again in remembrance of Cheri’s mother, Douglas’ wife, and the pillar of their family. It stands outside the A-Action office today as a symbol of that support that has made the business what it is today.
