Dayton’s Pest Control acquired by Waynes
Dayton’s Pest Control, based in Knoxville, Tennessee, was acquired by Waynes Pest Control Services, an Anticimex company. The acquisition marks Waynes’ entry into Eastern Tennessee.
Dayton’s was founded by Dayton Hylton in 1985 in the basement of his parents’ home. Under the leadership of Dayton and his wife, Sheila, the Company grew to become a leading independent pest control provider in Eastern Tennessee. The Company focuses on residential pest control.
Dayton Hylton commented, “Thirty-five years ago, I began this business with a passion to serve others while pursuing my dream of a career in entomology. In 2003, my wife Sheila joined Dayton’s and we have been blessed to expand the Dayton’s Team and our impact within the community through service to thousands of Knoxville residents. We are honored to entrust Waynes with our Team and look forward to the opportunities that this will create for them and the customers we serve now and in the future”.
