ATLANTA, Ga. — Rollins announced that it has signed a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the assets and operations of Allpest WA, a leading independent pest control provider in Western Australia.

Allpest has an outstanding management team, and brings to our family of pest control brands many of the shared values within our Company, including a culture of continuous improvement, ongoing investment in training and professional employee development programs.
