Kirkland’s Pest Control was recently ranked 74th in the Top 100 listing of pest control companies nationwide as published in the Pest Control Technology magazine.
Kirkland’s Pest Control’s roots are in Lincoln County, and their corporate offices remain here, though they have five other locations in area cities, including those in Lawrenceburg, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, Sevierville and Athens, Ala.
H. Delmer Kirkland founded the business in 1976. His four sons, Alan, D.R., Steve and Joe Kirkland took over the company in January 2010.
“Dad always said his CFO was Jesus,” said Joe Kirkland.
The company now has approximately 95,000 customers and 113 employees. Seven members of the third generation of the Kirkland’s family are included among those employees. Joe said he is grateful for the employees.
“We couldn’t do it without them,” he said. “We’ve just been blessed.”
The company is a member of the Better Business Bureau of North Alabama, received the Number One Best in Tennessee Award and was the 2019 recipient of The Times’ Lincoln County’s Finest Readers’ Survey.
“We couldn’t do what we do without the support of Lincoln County,” said Joe, thanking citizens for their support.
Kirkland’s services, in addition to pest control, include moisture control, wildlife removal and insulation.
Kirkland’s local office in Park City is located at 2720 Huntsville Highway. For more information, call them at 433-5897.
