BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Waynes, an Anticimex company, announced expansion into the Eastern Tennessee market with the acquisition of Dayton’s Pest Control, a Knoxville, Tenn.-based company.

Dayton Hylton, owner of Dayton’s added, “Thirty-five years ago, I began this business with a passion to serve others while pursuing my dream of a career in entomology.

We are honored to entrust Waynes with our Team and look forward to the opportunities that this will create for them and the customers we serve now and in the future.”
