Business of the Week

Business of the Week

A strong handshake. Honesty. Doing things right the first time. Taking care of your neighbors, working hard, keeping your word. That is how Tennessee exterminators, Sherrill Pest Control, does business. It was a different time in 1950. That was the year that Horace Sherrill started helping families protect their homes from insects, ants, and creepy crawlies. Almost 10 years later, Horace moved the pest control operation to middle Tennessee and his 4 children joined in. After running the business and building a great reputation for 25 years, he sold the middle Tennessee interest to his oldest son Vernon “Jr.” Sherrill. In a parking lot of a customer’s home, Jr. scratched out a logo on a napkin and “Sherrill Pest Control” exterminators was officially born.

The trust factor is big for Sherrill Pest Control. They have gone through great lengths to become a Quality Pro Certified company. This is not necessary for exterminator/service based organizations but was important to Kevin. To achieve the “Quality Pro” Certification they do extensive background checks, drug screens, and an in-depth interview process. The average employee has been with Sherrill Pest for over 8 years.
