Vamonos Pest is a fumigation company based out of Albuquerque, NM. It was owned by Ira until he sold it to Mike Ehrmantraut, Walter White, and Jesse Pinkman to be used as a front for their methamphetamine manufacturing organization.
Vamonos Pest tents around four houses every week in the Albuquerque area. While the organization is legitimate, the five-man crew of exterminations bolster their income by burglarizing the houses they fumigate (or by selling the alarm codes and duplicated keys to other criminals). The Vamonos employees would either sell the information to other thieves or rob the houses themselves after a period of time. Saul Goodman was lawyer to many of Vamonos' crooks.
Ownership of Walt and Jesse
In 2009, Vamonos was sold by Ira to Mike Ehrmantraut, Walter White, and Jesse Pinkman to be used as a front for their newly founded methamphetamine organization. The Vamonos crew was strictly instructed to not speak to Walt nor Jesse and were forbid from stealing from any of the houses that Walt and Jesse were working in. ("Hazard Pay") Mike died and Jesse left voluntarily, leaving Walt as the sole owner. ("Say My Name")
Use as a mobile lab
Brandon "Badger" Mayhew and Skinny Pete got rolling roadie cases to transport lab equipment for Walt and Jesse. Around once a week, Walt and Jesse would identify a house that would serve as a temporary cook location. The Vamonos employees would tent the house as usual but roll in the mobile lab equipment inconspicuously for Jesse and Walt. The lab would be erected in an air-tight tent inside the house so as not to taint the house with odors. Once the cook was complete and lab packed up, the regular bug bombing would commence.
After Walt left the meth business and the meth production eventually fell to Declan and his crew, it is presumed that Vamonos Pest discontinued the practice of making meth inside the tented houses. However, Vamonos's employee Todd continued to be involved in the meth business, and (in a coup engineered by Lydia Rodarte-Quayle, who was unable to continue with the quality of the meth being produced since Walt's departure) Todd and his uncle Jack's White Supremacist gang murdered Declan and his men, presumably to start up their own operation with Todd as the cook ("Buried"). It is unlikely that Vamanos Pest was to be used as a front in future, as Todd was seen to cook with Walt's old equipment in a lab housed deep inside the White Supremacist compound.
