Fox Pest Control, Logan, Utah, recently helped grant wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The pest control company, along with several other businesses, helped Make-A-Wish reach the goal of granting more than 40 wishes to children this past fall. “At Fox we aim to give back wherever we can within the community. When we are able to make an impact for the better in someone’s life, that’s when we are truly accomplishing our goals as a company,” said Bryant White, co-founder of Fox Pest Control.

In October, Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators announced the acquisition of Exterminating Unlimited, a full-service pest management company based in Richmond, Va. The 37-year-old Exterminating Unlimited provides pest and termite control services to residents and businesses located in the Piedmont region of Virginia. This transaction represents Arrow’s first location in Virginia and sets the stage for further expansion into the Commonwealth, the company said. Paul Giannamore of The Potomac Company acted as adviser to Exterminating Unlimited.
