Plunkett’s Pest Control acquired Harmony Pest Services, an Albuquerque, N.M.-based pest control company.

Harmony Pest provides full-service pest control services in Albuquerque and surrounding areas. This acquisition merges two privately-owned pest control companies and expands Plunkett’s Pest Control services in the greater Albuquerque area.

“Harmony Pest Services stood out to us because of their small-business values,” said Stacy O’Reilly, owner and president of Plunkett’s Pest Control. “We are working closely with Matt and Marianne to help integrate their clients into the Plunkett’s system, and to help transition their technicians to positions at Plunkett’s. We are looking forward to learning from Matt, Marianne and the rest of their team and doing what we can to help everyone continue to grow and improve together.”

“One goal for this merger is to make sure our customers get the best pest control care possible,” said Matt Vaive, owner of Harmony Pest Services. “One means to that end is for them to have dedicated technicians they will see quarter after quarter.

Harmony Pest Services was founded under the name Manzano Pest Management by Vaive in 1994. It was renamed Harmony Pest Services in 2007. Harmony Pest Services is run by Matt and Marianne Vaive. They built their business with the customer’s comfort and safety as the first priority, and the idea of being a forever learner as the key for impactful pest control.

Once the merger is complete, Matt and Marianne will be the newest members of Plunkett’s Pest Control team, along with the rest of the Harmony Pest Services staff.
