MEMPHIS, TN --(Marketwired - May 02, 2016) - Terminix, the leading provider of termite and pest control services in the United States, today announced an important expansion in upstate New York, Vermont and Massachusetts with the acquisition of the northern division operations of Catseye Pest Control.

Founded in East Greenbush, N.Y., by a husband-and-wife team that went door-to-door building relationships with customers, Catseye has served the greater Albany area for 29 years. John and Monica Gagne built a successful business that provides pest control, nuisance wildlife control and exclusion services to thousands of homeowners and businesses in the greater Albany area and Western Massachusetts.

"Catseye is well-known for providing high-quality pest control and excellent customer service," said Bill Derwin, president of Terminix, a ServiceMaster company (NYSE: SERV). "The company's culture and commitment to an exceptional customer experience make Catseye a great addition to our team."

"We are excited about this new relationship," said John Gagne, president and co-owner of Catseye. "With a long history of innovation and leadership, Monica and I are confident that joining with ServiceMaster's pest control business is the right choice for our northern division. We are proud of our team and are excited that our employees will continue to provide our outstanding services to our loyal customers for years to come."

Jason Bailey, vice president of mergers and acquisitions for ServiceMaster, noted that strategic acquisitions are an important part of the overall growth strategy and the company continually searches for companies that mirror its focus on excellent customer service, professionalism and the potential for growth. "We're pleased to welcome this company to the growing ServiceMaster network," he said.

The acquired business operations will continue operating as Catseye Pest Control with the support of Terminix and ServiceMaster. Catseye staff, services and guarantees will remain the same.
