Orkin Announces Acquisition of Five Pest Control Companies

ATLANTA, — Orkin has increased its customer base and market share with the acquisition of five pest control companies: PESCO Pest and Termite Control Inc., Brandon, Fla.; Pest Control Specialists Inc., Bay St. Louis, Miss.; All Ohio Fertilizer and Pest Control, Hudson, Ohio; Perminate Pest Control, East Hampstead, N.H.; and Bugs R Us Pest Control, Abilene, Texas. These acquisitions are in addition to the HomeTeam acquisition Rollins announced on April 3, and were finalized on Jan. 4, Jan. 11, March 7, March 19 and March 21, respectively.

“With these five acquisitions, Orkin not only increases its customer service areas but also adds valuable tenured employees,” said Bob Hines, director of acquisitions for Orkin.

Founded in 1990 by Cecil Martin, PESCO Pest and Termite Control Inc., specializes in general pest and termite control. Through the acquisition, Orkin will combine the PESCO business with its North and South Tampa, Fla., accounts to open Orkin’s first branch in Brandon, Fla. The new branch will increase Orkin’s customer base in a key Florida region, creating a more convenient location for Orkin employees. PESCO will also add experienced employees to the Orkin team.

Pest Control Specialists Inc., founded in 1996 by David and Susanne Mayley will merge into Orkin’s Gulfport, Miss., branch and add several tenured technicians to the Orkin team.

Orkin strengthened its customer base with the pest control accounts of All Ohio Fertilizer and Pest Control which will be added to Orkin’s Akron, Ohio, branch. Owner John Gilmor will retain the company’s lawn care business.

Perminate Pest Control merged its accounts into Orkin’s Boston Commercial branch. Perminate co-owners Ed Crowley and Jeff Richard have more than 30 years of combined industry experience and will also join Orkin’s team. Crowley will work in commercial sales while Richard will join Orkin’s New England Region as a service manager.

The acquisition of Bugs R Us Pest Control will bring five experienced technicians and four new pest control routes into Orkin’s Abilene, Texas, location, continuing Orkin’s growth in the West Texas area.

“Each of these companies will be a great asset to Orkin and make a great fit for our growing markets,” said Hines.
