Luke Lewis, president of Native Pest Management, announced the company opened a new location in Tallahassee, Fla., to expand its pest control services to Leon, Jefferson, Gadsden and Wakulla counties in August 2022.
The team hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Aug. 3 to celebrate the official branch opening.
The Tallahassee branch is the fifth service branch for Native Pest Management with other office located in West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, Margate and Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with service areas from Vero Beach down to Miami, Fla.
“This is huge for us because we’ve been a ‘South Florida’ company since our inception. By starting service in North Florida, we’ve taken a big step forward towards becoming known as the go-to solution for pet-friendly pest control throughout the state. That’s why we are so excited to provide pest control in Tallahassee. We get to help more people become pest free,” Lewis said.
In 2022, Native Pest Management has opened offices in Fort Lauderdale, Port St. Lucie and now Tallahassee. With plans to open a Miami, Fla., branch later this year, the company hopes to continue to expand its service areas throughout the state of Florida.
