About us

The company was founded by Steven Weiss as a division of Environmental Chemical Co., Inc., a wholesaler of pest control, lawn care and tree care supplies.  The company was incorporated into its current structure on February 1, 1981. 

The current manager, Barry Eldridge (aka drbugclinic),  joined the company on November 16, 1981, as a sales representative.  Over the years, Barry assumed additional responsibilities progressing to sales manager and then manager of the company. With the passing of Steven Weiss on November 5, 1997, and a subsequent corporate buyout,  Barry Eldridge became CEO and President of Environmental Chemical Co., Inc. on December 30, 1999.

Our small business is located in Spring Valley, New York, which is 35 miles northwest of New York City and about 5 miles north of Bergen County, New Jersey.

We have always tried to provide the best information we can for our customers - that is part of the sale.  Though you can purchase similar products at supermarkets, hardware stores, home centers and other stores, their staff is not familiar them; they cannot provide knowledgeable support for them.

It is our goal to provide our customers with the products they need to do the job right the first time.  We want to know that they understand how to use our products. We provide printed support and specimen labels as needed.
