About Us

Over 30 years ago we made Wolfeboro, New Hampshire our home.

Dave and Mary JoubertWhile living and working in Plymouth Massachusetts, an opportunity arose for us to start a septic pumping company in the Lakes Region of New Hampshire. With three young children at the time, this was a big move for us.

After talking it over, we decided that this was a chance we had to take. It would be wonderful place to raise our young family.

The story behind the Queen Bee. Our fledgling business started out in 1983 as “Dave’s Septic Pumping,” with Dave working a full time job and running his truck evenings and on weekends.  Back then we communicated with two-way radios. As Dave drove the pumper truck, his handle was “Honey Bucket” and Mary was the “Queen Bee.” Since that time, the name has been changed to DJ’s Septic Pumping Services, Inc. The communication now consists of cell phones and head sets in the trucks. But the trucks are still known as the “HoneDave-and-Maryy Buckets,” and Mary will always be the “Queen Bee!”

A family business. Our children grew up working with us and learned all about the septic business. Some of our customers still comment on remembering them on the truck when they were very young. We have worked hard and our children have as well. Our son Jason and daughter Michelle both worked for the company while growing up. Today they are running their own businesses which are both related to the septic industry. Mary and Heidi keep the office running smoothly and our grandson is working for us and learning the business as well.

When you see our trucks today, you can’t miss our distinguishable “Queen Bee” logo!

AboutOne of the decisions that we made early on was to invest in the best equipment to do the job effectively. We were one of the first septic pumping services in the area to invest in a 5000 gallon pumper truck. The truck was also equipped with 200” feet of hose since some septic tanks require a longer distance to get to.

Although we have competitors we consider them our friends too.  We attend Septic Haulers meetings on a regular basis; support one another and work together to improve the efficiency and level of service in the septic pumping industry.

The New Hampshire Lakes Region is our home. We pride ourselves on having a good reputation and getting to know our customers.
