About Massey Services

Massey Services began in February 1985 when industry veteran Harvey Massey, a member of the Pest Management Professional (PMP) Hall of Fame, Class of 2008, purchased an existing pest management company with four branches and annual revenues just below $4 million. Although he went almost $1 million into debt when he bought the business, Massey quickly recovered, and today the company employs more than 2,500 team members and operate 2,300 vehicles that provide residential and commercial pest prevention, termite protection, landscape and irrigation services to more than 750,000 customers from more than 170 service centers throughout Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Texas, South Carolina, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Virginia and Tennessee. As Harvey Massey noted in his Hall of Fame profile: “It’s a people business. It always has been and always will be. I really love that aspect of it.”
