The Pestop provides pest, lawn and termite control services to esidents and businesses located on the Southeast coast of Florida. This transaction sets the stage for Arrow’s further expansion in Martin and St. Lucie counties.

“We are so pleased to welcome the customers and team members of The Pestop to the Arrow family,” Emily Thomas Kendrick, CEO of Arrow Exterminators, said in the news release. “Sybil Cobb has a wonderful business with an excellent reputation and family culture. The core values established by Sybil and Philippe when they founded the company in 1995 mirror those of Arrow today, so this merger is a perfect fit.  Given the ideal location of the business, it is a strategic one as well.”

“When looking for a home for our business, we were looking for a company that provides exemplary customer service and was passionate about how customers and team members are treated.  We found that in Arrow Exterminators and are very proud to now be part of the Arrow Family,” said Sybil Cobb, owner of The Pestop. “We wanted to give our team members an opportunity to be with a company where we knew there would be growth opportunities as well as be able to offer an expanded range of services to offer our customers.  All of my team members will continue their careers with Arrow Exterminators.”
