Excel Pest Control was established in 1999 by Greg and Shelly Ricker, and is located in Fredericton, New Brunswick. In addition to pest control, Excel offers services such as infrared building condition monitoring, insulation services, structural renovations and hygienic washroom care. Excel Pest Control was acquired by Terminix in December 2014 and services customers in Fredericton, St. John’s, Moncton, Woodstock, Sussex and St. Stephen.
Cabot Pest Control was founded in 1998 by Kenneth and Kathy Pretty, and is located in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Cabot was acquired by Terminix in January 2015. The company also provides bird control services, commercial washroom care, odor neutralizers and home protection plans, and services customers in the agricultural, institutional, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors.
“In our efforts to expand our presence, Canada will play an important role in our growth strategy,” says Bill Derwin, Terminix president.
Company officials said the acquisitions will not have a material impact on its first-quarter or full-year 2015 financial results.
