Now, after 40 years of working with bees, Bill is still the only one that specializes in just bees and wasps in the Portland metro area. He enjoys the exterminating end of the business and is joined by his wife, Jane, and son, Kelly, in the office.
Owner and founder of Bee Control Northwest, Bill Ruhl Jr. started as a hobby beekeeper with his father in 1962. His father bought a beekeeping supply business in 1970. When Bill got out of the army he helped manage the family business. The business was doing very well; however, they were always getting calls from people who needed bees exterminated from their homes.
