Bonide is committed to providing the best possible solutions for home, lawn and garden pest problems. It was 1926 when James H. Wurz of North Utica, NY decided to go to work for himself. Jim quit his job as a traveling salesman and along with his brother George, they started what we know today as Bonide Products Inc. In those days the Wurz brothers traveled the dirt roads of America in their Model-T, selling 5-gallon pails of dairy and cattle sprays to farmers and feed stores. The brothers would collect sales orders all summer until the roads washed out. Through the winter months they produced their merchandise and come spring they shipped their orders before setting out again for the summer selling season.
It's over 80 years later and not much has changed. Sure, the company is much larger and today operates out of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, but the basic premise is the same. Bonide is still a family-owned and -operated business who cares about its environment, customers, employees and suppliers. The current third generation of ownership has the same respect and gratitude for the second generation as the second had for the first. Bonide is not just their business. It is their heritage and their passion.
The industry has seen enormous change and consolidation over the years. Regulatory and market pressures make this a tough business. Bonide feels that their sense of history helps guide them through these challenges. They don't measure their success just by quarterly results, they measure it by decades.
Bonide has always been committed to providing the best possible solutions for home, lawn and garden pest problems. This includes attractive, convenient, cost-effective packaging and product selection second to none.
