Company History

OCON Termite & Pest Control, Inc. was established in 1979 by Jack and Barbara O’Connell. By that time, Jack had already spent 20 years in our industry with another company. With their focus on personalized customer service and quick response, Jack and Barbara quickly built OCON into Western Connecticut’s premier Pest Management firm.

Right from the beginning, Barbara’s oldest son, Steve Temple, was involved in the company. He learned the business hands-on between semesters at college and joined the firm full-time in December of 1984. When Jack and Barbara retired in the Spring of 1997, Steve took the reins as OCON President.

In July of 1986 Mark Moore joined OCON as an Apprentice Pest Control Technician. Surrounded by industry experts and driven to learn every aspect of the business Mark quickly moved through the ranks of OCON as Expert Technician, Certified Inspector, Service Manager, General Manager, Vice President and on July 1st  2018, 32 years to the week of his interview with Jack O’Connell Mark purchased OCON from Steve.

As President / CEO, Mark along with his wife Amy their son Christopher who joined OCON as an Apprentice Technician in August 2018 and daughter Madeline plan to prepare for OCON’s 40th anniversary in 2019 by expanding our services offered and continuing to provide customer focused “Sensible Pest Solutions with Reliable Results”.
