Knox Pest Control acquires company

Knox Pest Control Company has acquired Ideal Pest Solutions of Savannah and Statesboro, Ga., the Columbus-based company announced today.

The deal was the pest and termite control business' third acquisition in 2008.

John Knox, Knox president, said this purchase was the largest single acquisition in the company's history.

Established in 1929, it's a fourth generation family-owned business that has grown to become one of the largest pest control companies in the southeast.

It serves Georgia, Alabama and north Florida.
