OUR ROOTS RUN DEEP.
The roots of what would become Arrow Environmental Services date back to 1886, when a man named George Pickhardt founded one of the nation’s first pest control services near Buffalo, N.Y. His son, Vern, established Arrow Environmental in Sarasota in 1958, making it one of west Florida’s first, and longest-established, pest control service companies.
Now under the direction of George’s grandson and namesake, company Chairman George Pickhardt, Arrow Environmental Services operates in more than 100 communities in west-central and southwest Florida.
Arrow has been - and continues to be - one of the fastest-growing pest control companies in the nation, as more and more customers join a company built on quality customer service and personal relationships.
We focus on sustainable practices, being especially mindful of the safety of children and pets. Our collaborative style means that we take a wide-ranging approach to addressing your pest control issues. As just one example, a pest problem might have to do with how your landscaping is trimmed around your windows, so that might be the answer instead of simply increasing pest control treatments.
This consultative approach is supported by intensive, industry-leading employee education and on-going training, driven by George Pickhardt, who holds a PhD in plant nutrition from Cornell University as well as a master’s degree in entomology from the University of Florida. This ongoing education is a key to our guaranteeing your customer satisfaction.
All in all, this makes Arrow the right choice for your pest control needs.
