About PestNow of
Central Virginia

PestNow Central Virginia is a veteran-owned and operated local small business offering Pest Control Services throughout the Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Northern Neck areas. All of the partners served in the U.S. military and have lived in central Virginia for many years; several are lifelong or longtime Virginians.

The company launched as a PestNow franchise in 2014, starting with Jeff Huber and his brother, Jacob Huber, and two vehicles. The company has since grown to 26 employees across four locations, including 5 office employees, 18 field technicians, and 3 partners, as well as a fleet of 10 vehicles. Jacob Huber has launched the third PestNow CVA location in the Northern Neck.

One of the hallmarks of PestNow is hands-on, personalized customer service: “When customers call in with a concern, they have direct access to the ownership. There are no gatekeepers,” says founder Jeff Huber.

Unlike some other pest control businesses, PestNow hires full-time, year-round employees – not part-timers or seasonal workers. In addition, all technicians are fully trained, licensed, registered, and certified through the Commonwealth of Virginia; they also undergo criminal background and driving record checks. Customers can be assured of getting the highest levels of quality, professionalism, reliability and expertise from PestNow CVA employees. In addition, inspections are always free, and we stand by our work with warranties for between 90 days to a full year, depending on the type of treatment or work performed.

Leadership Team

He served his country in the U.S. Army as a military policeman, and after his discharge in 1994 he got into the pest control business, first working for another company. He started as a service technician and then worked his way through the ranks in sales and management positions. He lives in Spotsylvania County.


JEFF ZALINSKI joined the company in 2017 and oversees the Richmond office, based in Midlothian. He also served in the U.S. Army as an infantry officer; he’s been a hub leader for the charity Tech for Troops since 2020. Before joining PestNow CVA, Jeff worked for the parent PestNow organization, starting as an inspector in 2005 and working his way into management. He has lived in Virginia for over 30 years.


SHAWN PAYNE earned an associate’s degree in business and did a 4-year tour in the U.S. Navy, after which he worked for Geico insurance for 17 years, rising to the supervisor’s level. He oversees the Fredericksburg office, overseeing the sales and service staff, managing the fleet, and handling the company’s IT needs. He was born and raised in Stafford County and now lives in Fredericksburg.


JACOB HUBER has worked with PestNow since 2009, first with Jeff Huber in Maryland and then moving to Virginia to be part of the PestNow CVA team. Jeff manages the Northern Neck office and lives in Lottsburg, Northumberland County.

PestNow CVA is committed to supporting and giving back to the communities in which we operate. Our founders are all longtime or lifelong Virginians, and we all live in Central Virginia. So, we proudly support Tech for Troops, Chesterfield Food Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and the Christian construction ministry 516 Project. PestNow CVA also works with local social services agencies to sponsor families and provide holiday food and gifts at Thanksgiving and Christmas.
