Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators acquired Advantage Pest Control, a full-service company focusing on residential and commercial pest and termite control.

Headquartered in Pinellas Park, Fla., the center of the St. Petersburg/Clearwater peninsula, Advantage Pest Control allows Arrow to reach more residential and commercial customers with a full line of services in the Tampa Bay area.

Advantage Pest will operate as Hughes Exterminators and brings up Arrow’s total number of service centers to 25 throughout Florida, according to Emily Thomas Kendrick, president and CEO of Arrow Exterminators.

All employees of Advantage Pest Control will have the opportunity to continue their careers with Arrow Exterminators, according to Michael Piacenza, Advantage Pest Control’s owner.

“When looking for a home for our business, we were looking for a company that provides world-class customer service and was obsessed about how customers and employees are treated,” Piacenza says. “We found that in Arrow Exterminators.”
