Also founded in 1979 was American Pest Management, Kansas City, Kan. The company provides pest control to commercial and residential customers in the metro Kansas City, Kan., area, including Overland Park, Olathe, Liberty and surrounding areas.

“Throughout the past year, we have explored many options for the best interest of our clients and staff,” said Ben Sachdeva, owner of American Pest Management.

“Rentokil is an excellent fit to provide benefits and opportunities for upward mobility for our staff as well as ensure the continuation of superior service to our clients.”

Rentokil’s acquisition of Modesto, Calif.-based Insect IQ Pest Control Services was finalised in November 2021.

Insect IQ Pest Control Services was founded in 2003 and serves the California communities of Modesto, Oakdale, Patteson, Riverbank and surrounding areas.
