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 & 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.
