About Guardian Exterminating

Guardian Exterminating Company is a family-owned business serving South Central Kentucky, including Harrodsburg and Danville, with over 85 years of combined experience in the pest control industry. We provide pest inspections, treatments of all types, and a variety of preventive and maintenance programs.


Danie E. Rice, Jr. has been involved in structural pest management since 1975. In 1983 Danie founded Guardian Exterminating Co. in Stanford, Kentucky with the help of his son, Danie D. Rice who joined the company in 1989. They soon began to develop and expand their customer base.

The driving force behind Guardian Exterminating has always been honesty and quality of service. Joining state associations, as well as the National Pest Management Association, were logical steps to obtaining cutting-edge training and demonstrating professionalism.  Training never ends for us, as new products, equipment, and industry changes present opportunities for us to learn and better serve our customers.

In 2006, Guardian expanded their services to include Lawn Care Service, thru the addition of B-Green Lawn Care.
