KENNEWICK, WA - Senske Pest Control has acquired Las Vegas, Nev.-based Guardian Pest Defense in order to strengthen its residential pest control customer base and achieve its long term goal of operating in the metro Las Vegas area.

Ammon Hartner, former owner of Guardian Pest Defense in Las Vegas, said he decided to sell in order to spend more time with his family.

"I searched for a company with exceptional customer service who will maintain the quality my customers and employees have come to expect,” he said. “After carefully considering several options and selecting a company that aligned with my guarantees, ethics, reliability and reputation, I am excited to announce that Senske Pest Control will be caring for my customer's properties in the future.”

Hartner indicated he would continue to be involved in the Chicago Guardian Pest Defense location as in the past but also added "It was a very good experience working with Senske. They offered a fair price and it only took 35 days from our first conversation to closing the deal."

Senske , a company with 65 years of experience in the pest control business, had been on the search for an anchor in the Las Vegas market they could build on.  "Guardian Pest Defense was just what we were looking for in a company to help us launch the Las Vegas operation," said Chris Senske, president of Senske Pest Control
In the last 12 months Senske has acquired three companies in the pest control and lawn care industry building a stronger presence in the central and south Intermountain West region.  Senske operations now span a service area throughout the Intermountain West region.

“We will focus on continuing to give great service to Guardian’s customers and develop even stronger customer loyalty by offering a host of new services supported by a highly trained team of pest control experts. We look forward to servicing even more Western communities as we grow and develop the Senske brand in these new market territories,” said Senske.
