"Trust is important in our industry," said Lanny Allgood, CEO, Allgood Pest Solutions. "We've ensured our new customers that we will do all we can with our experience and resources to exceed their expectations throughout the acquisition period."

Jon Loveland, previous owner of Pied Piper, will join the team at Allgood Pest Solutions.
