About Us

We are a full-service company specializing in Pest Control Management, Crawlspace Management, and Licensed Home Inspections.

Eric Rust

Owner

Eric has been a Licensed Pest Control Operator for over 30 years. He began working in the pest control business with his dad, Don Rust, at age 14. Eric’s thorough knowledge of subterranean termite behaviors and pest management strategies has been proven time and again.

In 1999, Eric combined his pest control qualifications with his home inspection license and formed Home Pro Advantage.

He felt that his pest control license and experience partnered well with the home inspection business. His dual license would ultimately allow him to perform both the home inspection and termite inspection for the home buyer. He is the only inspector in our region who holds both licenses.

Because of the confidence and trust he has built in our community, Home Pro Advantage has established longstanding relationships with thousands of satisfied clients.

Eric is a member of First Baptist Church of Paducah and serves on the Board of Directors for Freedom Forever Ministries, a prison ministry program.

He is an affiliate member of the Paducah Board of Realtors. He is also a member of the KY Chamber of Commerce, the Paducah Chamber of Commerce, the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (InterNACHI).

Eric is a family man, spending much of his free time with his wife, Lee, and their children and grandchildren. He also enjoys traveling, tennis and fishing.

Grant Shelby

Sales & Tech Manager

Grant is Eric’s stepson and has been with the company since he was a teenager. As the Sales and Tech manager, Grant enjoys cultivating the quality personal relationships that our customers at HPA have grown to expect. His attention to detail for each client creates confidence and trust in our business.

As an expert in the pest control industry and crawl space solutions, Grant thrives when taking on the most challenging pest management problems.

Grant is engaged to Tana and has 3 children. In his free time, he likes bow fishing, hunting, football, and spending time with his family.

Tom Dolan

Customer Service Manager

Tom joined the Home Pro Advantage team after working in office management in the non-profit sector.

Prior to joining the team, Tom was an HPA customer for 20 years. He always appreciated the company’s stellar customer service and family-focused values.

As HPA’s Customer Service Manager, Tom schedules all appointments and focuses on client relationship-building. He’s a true people person and enjoys getting to know HPA customers so he can offer the personalized service for which HPA is known.

Tom has been married to his wife, Lois, a physical therapist, for 35 years. They have 3 grown sons and 2 grandsons. In his free time, he loves traveling to visit his sons and grandchildren, performing with Market House Theater and Badgett Playhouse in Grand Rivers, KY, and operating his Santa Claus business, where he offers personalized messages for children.
