“We are thrilled to welcome the customers and team members of Boltin Pest Control to the Arrow family,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, Chief Executive Officer of Arrow Exterminators. “Founded in 1968 by ‘Bo’ Boltin, Boltin Pest Control, now with Bo’s wife Lacy Boltin at the helm, continues the tradition of excellence that Bo started in 1968 when he founded the company.  This new location will ultimately operate as Hughes Exterminators, an Arrow Exterminators brand, and gives us a total of 35 service centers throughout the great state of Florida and 149 offices in the country.”  

“We feel very fortunate to have connected with Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators,” commented Owner and President Lacy Boltin.  “We’ve talked to many companies over the years and we know Arrow will take the best care of our employees due to their very strong family culture and, in addition, they will have greater opportunities for growth,” Boltin added.  “After meeting Emily and her team during the diligence phase, we knew we were selecting the right company and are excited we will be able to offer more services to our existing customers.”

“Boltin Pest Control is a very established and well-respected name in the state of Florida, and we are really proud to have this strong team of professionals join the Arrow family,” stated Tim Pollard, Arrow’s President and Chief Operating Officer. “Central Florida continues to be a targeted growth market for us and having a location in Dade City only strengthens our presence. We feel fortunate to have been selected by Lacy and are excited about our future in this area.”
