KENNEWICK, Wash. – In a move that expands its residential pest control customer base and brings it into the metro Las Vegas market, Senske Pest Control has acquired Guardian Pest Defense.
Guardian’s former owner, Ammon Hartner, said he would continue to be involved in the Chicago Guardian Pest Defense location as in the past, adding that he wanted to spend more time with his family.
Hartner said the deal with Senske closed five days after the first discussion.
Senske, a company with 65 years of experience in the pest control business, had been on the search for an anchor in the Las Vegas market it could build on.
"Guardian Pest Defense was just what we were looking for in a company to help us launch the Las Vegas operation," said Chris Senske, president of Senske Pest Control
In the last twelve months Senske has acquired three companies in the pest control and lawn care industry. The company now operates throughout the Intermountain West region.
“We will focus on continuing to give great service to Guardian’s customers and develop even stronger customer loyalty by offering a host of new services supported by a highly trained team of pest control experts. We look forward to servicing even more Western communities as we grow and develop the Senske brand in these new market territories,” said Senske.
