Frog Eats Roach

This is so sad for me, I've worked for the Burke family for 17 years, but before David Burke, Sr. passed he set the wheels in motion.

Middleton Acquires Tampa-Based Florida Exterminating Company

ORLANDO, Fla. – Middleton Lawn & Pest Control, a subsidiary of Fort Lauderdale-based Sunair Services Corporation, announced that it acquired the assets of Florida Exterminating Co., a family owned business built and grown on more than 37 years of experience.

Headquartered in Tampa, Fla., Florida Exterminating provides household pest control, drywood and subterranean termite control as well as home inspection services to residential homes and select commercial properties throughout the Tampa, St. Petersburg, Land O’ Lakes and Lakeland areas of Florida. For more than 37 years, Florida Exterminating Co. prospered under the leadership of the Burke Family, most recently under CEO David F. Burke, Jr.

"Florida Exterminating Co. is a great fit for Middleton since it mostly falls within our existing service area, thereby supporting our ‘tuck in’ approach to strategic growth by cost-effectively leveraging existing resources to provide existing and newly acquired customers with uninterrupted superior service," said Greg Clendenin, chief executive office of Middleton Lawn & Pest Control. “This acquisition strengthens our current position in the growing Tampa market and allows us to naturally extend and serve fringe areas in our footprint. Also, this addition speaks volumes of Middleton’s reputation and commitment to our customers and employees that the Burke family trusted us with their legacy. We welcome Florida Exterminating to the Middleton family and are excited about the additional business opportunities we expect this acquisition to generate.”
