The Aust Group is pleased to announce the most recent acquisition of their client, Doctor Dead Bug Inc., located in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania by Plunkett’s Pest Control.

In 1980, Robert and Georgia Servick founded Doctor Dead Bug, a pest control company committed to serving residences and businesses in their local community. Their son, Sam Servick, began operating the business in 2001 and expanded the business footprint into western Pennsylvania and northeastern Ohio. Doctor Dead Bug has an excellent reputation being awarded the “Best of the Best” in Lawrence County, PA for general pest control services over the past 10 years.

Sam Servick says, “Working with The Aust Group was a wonderful experience for us. We love the excellence and professionalism they demonstrated when preparing our company for the market and getting the right offer for us. From start to finish, they provided excellent advice and direction which was extremely helpful in getting the results we wanted. We have already recommended them to friends in the industry who are looking to sell their companies, reason being – they are simply the best. The Aust Group are not only business associates but through this process we have gained new friends.”

Stacy O’Reilly, the owner of Plunkett’s Pest Control affirms, “Doctor Dead Bug in Ellwood City, Pennsylvania fits perfectly into our existing service territory and we are so excited to make this acquisition and bring in their field service talent and their customers to join our team. It is our pleasure to get to know and work closely with Sam and Melanie Servick, the prior owners of Doctor Dead Bug.” Scott Steckel, Strategic Development Director of Plunkett’s Pest Control, adds, “Plunkett’s is happy with the results of this purchase and looks forward to another transaction with The Aust Group.”

The Aust Group represented Doctor Dead Bug as the exclusive financial advisor on this transaction. The transaction closed on October 2, 2020 and the terms of this transaction were not disclosed.
