We are so happy to join a fellow family-owned and operated company and be a part of the Arrow family and be able to offer our long-time customers an expanded range of services.”

“Goliath Pest Control was established in 2004 with the sole mission to provide the best possible service to commercial customers in the Orlando area and their success has led them to grown throughout all of Central Florida.  Pat and Rick are wonderful leaders and they have built a team to be proud of and we are thrilled that this group of professionals will join us and will blend in very well with the Arrow family,” stated Tim Pollard, Arrow’s President and Chief Operating Officer.
