Meet the Owner

Chris Hood (CPO)

Chris Hood Vernon Florida Bay Agri Services Owner

My twenty-five plus years of experience in the turf management and pest control industry affords me the opportunity to respond to my customer’s needs with both confidence and resolve.  I spent the early years of my career working on golf courses in the Panama City, FL area and then worked as a Turfgrass Science Research Technician at the University of Florida, West Florida Research and Education Center north of Pensacola. During this time, I worked closely with the UF scientists who developed Florida’s Green Industry Best Management Practices. Over time, I transferred that knowledge into a strong understanding of the local landscape needs and how to have a beautiful landscape.  With the arrival of Hurricane Ivan, I returned to Panama City and began work with a full-service pest control company. This introduced me to and equipped me to handle the household pest side of the industry. During this time, I also developed and refined a turf grass management program for our locally sandy soils we find here in Bay, Walton, and surrounding counties. My program addresses our local challenges and provides the proper applications to achieve a consistently healthy lawn. In 2007, I started my first lawn and pest control company and have spent more than a decade providing excellent value-based services to my customers in Bay and surrounding counties in various roles in the lawn and pest control industry. Bay Agri Services Inc. looks forward to suppling our customers with true solutions to all their lawn and pest control needs.
