Pony Express Pest Control is a family run business built on the lifetime of experience of operator Doug Hoskins. Located less than a mile from historic Sportsman’s hall on Pony Express Trail in Pollock Pines, Ca. Pony Express Trail up until the 1960’s was US Highway 50. It was a main, historical route from Echo Summit, down the American River Canyon, through Pollock Pines, then Placerville, to Sacramento for all of the freight wagons and travelers who regularly crossed the Sierra. Pony Express known for fast and reliable service is the tradition that we here at Pony Express Pest Control would like to carry on.
Doug and Roberta Hoskins have married over 15 years. A traditional love story of a preacher’s son and farmer’s daughter decided to make a home here in Pollock Pines a few years ago. Doug was raised in El Dorado County and grew up in the pest control industry since he was 5 years old. He chose to forgo summer activities with his friends to spend time assisting, watching and learning in a family owned pest control company. Come 1990, at the age of 19, Doug received his applicators license and started working as a pest control technician for the family business. He knew from the beginning that one day he would open his own pest control company.
It’s the traditional story of a Preacher’s Son and the Farmer’s Daughter who decided to make a home a few years back in Pollock Pines and started a business.
Doug and Roberta Hoskins’ sons are now 3rd Generation pest control professional.
