You are just being creative and proactive, taking ownership of the situation and doing your best to provide excellent customer service and remove vermin and other pests to the best of your abilities!

You'll probably get Employee of the Month, and that choice parking spot!

Yo, Patton, on your boss. If he spends time away from his only area of responsibilty make of point of having to track him down to verify work or orders or whatever you can . But not so much as to make you look incompetant. Just enough that when you just happen to speak to one of his bosses you could mention in passing that this was held up or that as delayed due to your bosses being out of touch. But ALWAYS be respectful to the butthead. Never give him ammo to use on you. And if there is something that he is a control freak over make a point of getting his orders on such every time. And if that is questioned by anyone make a point of telling them that this is the way the boss wants it. It's not productive but he wants it done this way anyway. And if this really gets a customer ticked off then that much the better if you can direct that anger at the boss.
Make a battle plan and go with it.

Good suggestion. Just remember to tread lightly. Sometimes things like this go boom in your face.
