The new mascot of Enviroguard Pest Solutions is a 12- foot-tall, 1,200 pound, fiberglass statue with a rich history. Its original home was on Elvis Presley Boulevard in Memphis, Tennessee where he was part of Atomic Pest Control from 1969 to 2013.

Purchased in 1969 by Les Tubbs the owner of Atomic Pest Control in Memphis, TN for $1,995 from Sculptured Advertising Sales in Champaign, Illinois, the mouse was delivered from the manufacturer in Wisconsin. The company guaranteed not to sell a similar mouse within a 200 mile radius of Memphis, TN. The molded fiberglass mouse was affixed to a trailer for easy mobility.

The mouse appeared at ribbon cuttings, parades, chamber events, malls, open houses, schools, fairs, movie premiers and other media events, promoting activities and advertising for Atomic Pest Control. The mouse became quite a celebrity and eventually caught the attention of pranksters.

In 1978 pranksters used an Atomic service vehicle with a trailer hitch to abduct the mouse and gave it a two-day joy ride. The mouse was eventually found in an alley in downtown Memphis. After that incident the decision was made to have the mouse permanently mounted on the roof of the Atomic office building located on Elvis Presley Boulevard, less than 2 miles north of Graceland (the home of Elvis Presley).

The mouse came to Ringgold, GA in December 2013 where it was restored and was officially unveiled on April 18, 2014. The mouse wants everyone to know how happy it is to be safe and secure in Ringgold and invites everyone to stop by and visit, have a photo made together, and of course, contact Enviroguard Pest Solutions for pest and termite control. The mouse mascot is on duty 24-hours a day at Exit 345 off I-75 in Ringgold, GA - call 706-965-9078.
