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, New York. 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 of sustainable practices, being especially mindful of the safety of children and pets. Our integrated pest management (IPM) approach to service includes focusing our efforts on where the pest come from—the outside of your home—with minimal environmental impact.

All in all, this makes Arrow the right choice for your pest control needs.
