This story began in college in Chicago where Dusty Showers attended Northern Illinois University on a soccer scholarship.  Dusty’s passion for bugs and animals, even the “weird” ones, was more than apparent when he began collecting reptiles and breeding pythons.

He later moved to Tampa where he created a business he knew he would love…Creepy Creatures Termite and Pest Control… and began spending his days exterminating bugs, catching raccoons, opossums, squirrels and beavers, all humanely, and spending nights treating and removing yellow jacket nests from people’s home.

After breast cancer struck his family, Dusty felt a calling to get involved in charity work and fundraising for the breast cancer community.  He is the co-founder and chairman of www.2ndBaseman.org, a 501c3 charity that provides direct financial support to women with breast cancer.

A portion of all sales from Creepy Creatures Termite and Pest Control goes to breast cancer research.

Dusty Showers has appeared on Oprah, The Daytime Show, swam in Alligator Alley and in 2012 Dusty rode his bicycle from Clearwater Beach to Los Angeles… all while wearing a pink bra to fight breast cancer.

Creepy Creatures covers all admin costs and contributes to www.The2ndBasemen.org so that 100% of donations can go to women and families affected with breast cancer. Dusty’s wife, Que, is also a cancer researcher at Moffitt Cancer Center here in Tampa!
