CLEVELAND — The pest control industry owes much of its recent growth to the rapid expansion of various niche markets tied to the industry’s public health mission, including mosquito control, tick IPM, rodent management and perimeter pest control. As a result, more and more PMPs are exploring the benefits of entering these markets or investing additional time and resources marketing these essential pest control services. If you’re considering growing your public health footprint for the 2019 pest control season, you’ll want to attend the PCT Public Health Virtual Conference scheduled for Wednesday, April 17.
The program will feature a number of leading entomologists with proven track records for developing successful treatment protocols for a wide array of public health pests, allowing companies to expand their service offerings and enhance their bottom line in the months and years ahead. Attendees also will learn about products they can integrate into their public health pest control arsenal from virtual event sponsors BASF, Syngenta and Thermacell.
*PCT is in the process of receiving CEU approvals for the event.

ATLANTA – Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators announced the merger and acquisition of All Guard Pest Control in Chandler, Ariz. This deal will provide Arrow the opportunity to strengthen its presence in the South Phoenix and East Valley markets.
“When we started considering selling our business, we contacted Arrow given their reputation for the two mergers they successfully completed in Phoenix over the course of the past few years,” said All Guard Owner Matthew Kennedy.
"We were so pleased with those previous transactions that we felt very comfortable in entrusting Arrow with this group of team members and customers.” Sarah Kennedy added, “We are proud to have these employees join a fellow family-owned and operated company and become a part of the Arrow family. Given their history, we know that our team members will be provided with many growth opportunities.”
