Collier’s Pest Control acquired by Rose Pest Solutions


June 24, 2021


Troy, Mich.-based Rose Pest Solutions, which can trace its roots to Pest Management Professional Hall of Famer Solomon Rose (Class of 2001), has acquired Traverse City, Mich.-based Collier’s Pest Control.

Rose Pest Solutions has served clients in northern Michigan, including Traverse City, for decades, according to a news release. This acquisition allows the company to expand its footprint in the region, particularly in Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Leelanau and Kalkaska counties.

“We were humbled when Gary Collier reached out to inquire about us taking on the day-to-day operations of his business,” Rose CEO Russ Ives said in a news release. “Collier’s is one of Michigan’s most trusted and well-respected pest control companies, and Rose will continue to honor the outstanding service and loyalty that Collier’s has built over the past 45 years with its clients.”

Collier, who founded the company in 1976, will assist with the transition process as he goes into semi-retirement.

“A family-owned company was always in the requirements of my search – one that represents my beliefs in my outlook of business,” Collier said in the news release. “Rose Pest Solutions is well respected in the marketplace, and by me, as a company of quality, integrity and care. They will now work to help our employees with benefits that I could not offer – and provide added services in a platform of growth.”

Rose Pest Solutions has plans to move to a larger facility to accommodate these expanded services. Until then, the combined companies will operate out of the current Collier’s Pest Control office in Traverse City.
