Senske Services acquires 2 companies


June 13, 2023

Senske ServicesSenske Services announced the acquisition of two companies.

First, the Spokane, Wash.-based firm acquired Barnes Quality Pest Control of Bend, Ore.

Barnes Quality Pest Control has served customers in Central Oregon since 1983 and provides professional residential and commercial pest control services. Corey Thompson, owner of Barnes Quality Pest Control, determined it was time to retire and sought a partner that would take care of his customers and employees.

“Our customers have high standards, and I trust Senske to meet those,” Thompson said in the news release. “Joining Senske also provides career growth opportunities for our employees.”

Senskes Services also recently acquired Emerald Lawns, headquartered in Austin, Texas.

Founded in 2006 by Mary and Luke Hawthorne, Emerald Lawns has built a reputation as the go-to provider of quality lawn care services in Austin, San Antonio, Temple, and surrounding areas in the Longhorn State. After an extensive evaluation process, Emerald Lawns concluded that Senske was the ideal partner, ensuring a positive experience for both customers and employees.

Luke Hawthorne will continue to lead the operations at the company.

“While selling Emerald was a tough decision it was made easier knowing that this acquisition will open doors and offer growth opportunities for my employees that I just could not have gotten for them on my own,” Hawthrone said in the news release. “The sales process was seamless and I can sincerely say the whole Senske team was a pleasure to work with. I’m excited to see just how far we can take the continued expansion of Emerald Lawns with the combined resources of Senske and GTCR.  It’s a new chapter for myself and Emerald but one I’m looking forward to.”

Senske Services and Emerald Lawns will continue to operate as separate entities, retaining their respective brands, teams, and service offerings.
