Orkin announced the acquisition of Florida-based Tri-County Pest Control South from Maria and Charles Baker, who started Tri-County immediately after they sold their Detroit business to Orkin, in 2004.

“Based on the success and ease of that 2004 merger, they called us to purchase their Florida-based business,” said Kemp Anderson, Southeast Division acquisition manager for Orkin. “Through the years, they have built two successful businesses, and the entire acquisition process has been fruitful for both parties.”
