ATLANTA — Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators announced the acquisition of Armand Pest Control, located in West Palm Beach, Fla. Armand is a full service company, specializing in residential and commercial pest control, termite control, and lawn and ornamental services.

Armand’s commitment to their customers, family values and passion for customer service as well as their full service offerings is a perfect fit with us.”
