Harvest Valley Pest Control

From killing varmints to saving souls,
all in a day's work for family entrepreneur

By Gary Bégin
QUINCY - David Kaylor spends his Sundays here talking about Jesus in front of groups of people, then spends the rest of the week sending bugs and rodents to varmint heaven.
He's one of the area's most successful new entrepreneurs as the owner, founder and lead technician for Harvest Valley Pest Control and he's also the Associate Pastor for Faith Community Church in Quincy.
As if that weren't enough, Kaylor is also the father of five children, four boys and a girl ages 2 -12.
"I like to think of myself as living in three worlds: family, business and church," said the 37-year-old former "westcoaster." His company employs nine with David running most of the show and a service manager helping out.
When necessary Kaylor is licensed and trained to do whatever "killer" job comes his way, but mostly he gets to use his strategic brain and people skills to market his services in three counties. With a few thousand in seed money, Kaylor has established "outposts" for his technicians in Moses Lake, Quincy, Leavenworth and Chelan along with the original HQ in Wenatchee. In these locations, Kaylor is able to stage a place for technicians to access supplies, take a break from the rigors of service calls and handle administrative functions.
Kaylor is positive that having a local presence in any community is part of the key to growth in that area.
His company offers quotes over the phone and will handle anything from bed bugs to rats, roaches to bees and other assorted nuisances. To be sure, Kaylor has some help putting his "empire" together and believes firmly in the power of networking, partnerships and use of consultants in key areas of its business. Harvest Valley has joined local chambers of commerce and the Rotary club as well. He credits financial planner and SCORE volunteer Joel Frank, his wife Katie and his father-in-law Jess Slusher. Ever magnanimous, Kaylor also credits Jordan Lindstrom's marketing skills stating, "Without him we wouldn't be where we are today."
