FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Sunair Services Corp. announced that it has acquired the assets of Longboat Key Pest Control. Headquartered in Longboat Key, Fla., the company will be integrated into the Sunair’s wholly owned subsidiary Middleton Lawn & Pest Control.

Longboat Key Pest Control has provided environmentally friendly fertilization, lawn and shrub care and pest management services to Sarasota and Manatee County area businesses and
homeowners since 1993.

“This acquisition further strengthens our presence in the growing Sarasota marketplace, a market we entered just a few years ago,” said John Hayes, chief executive officer of Sunair. “As a coveted territory by many of our competitors, the addition of Longboat Key bolsters our position by allowing us to expand our
service coverage in a region we already serve.”

“The Sarasota region is considered a new market at Middleton. The Longboat Key acquisition is strategic in our efforts to further build our presence and position in this new market, as we continue to expand our reach throughout Sarasota and Manatee counties,” said Greg Clendenin, chief executive officer of Middleton Lawn & Pest Control.
