LEESBURG, Fla. — Heron Pest Control celebrated its 10-year anniversary in March, and the company used that occasion to reflect on accomplishments and determine their course for the next 10 years.

Just two years ago Heron boasted that they were on a “March to a $1 million per month in revenue.” At the time they had three branches and completed just $530,000 in revenue in a single month. Now, two short years later, they will complete $1 million revenue in a single month in May out of six locations. They have also introduced a new irrigation division.

Heron continues to draw acknowledgement from their peers, and continues to sign up new clients.
