DALLAS — HomeTeam Pest Defense announced it has acquired Jacksonville, Fla.-based Atlantic Pest Solutions. Transaction terms were not disclosed.

On three occasions, HomeTeam has acquired pest management businesses from Maxwell beginning with Zion Termite and Pest Control in 1998.  In 2009, HomeTeam purchased some key customer routes from Atlantic Pest Control, which was also owned by Maxwell.  With this third acquisition, HomeTeam continues its expansion in an important geographic area.
