Advantage Pest Control is a local family business that provides commercial, residential and industrial pest control throughout Maine. Founded in 1997 by Richard Varney, Advantage Pest Control has grown both commercially and residentially.
“Our mission was simple, to provide excellent service, be friendly to our customers and have highly trained technicians,” said Richard Varney, owner of Advantage Pest Control. “Looking at the future of the company, I thought aligning myself with a company like Modern was a great opportunity for my employees and my customers.”
David Lock, president of Modern Pest Services, said it was the company’s 12th acquisition and second acquisition in Maine.
“This acquisition nicely complements our current service territories and will help build density in each of our Maine branches,” Lock said. “This addition provides more technicians available to provide a faster response when our customers need us.”
