Thompson Street Capital Partners (TSCP), a private equity firm based in St. Louis, today announced the acquisition of the assets of PestShield, LLC (PestShield) by PestCo Holdings, LLC (PestCo), a TSCP portfolio company. Located in St. Louis, Missouri, PestShield is a leading provider of residential pest control services that partners with local home builders to pre-install preventive pest control equipment in homes during the construction phase. With the backing of PestCo’s team and resources, PestShield is positioned for future growth, while continuing to provide high-quality service to customers.

This is the fourteenth investment for PestCo, a growth-oriented, national provider of pest control services to residential and commercial customers.

“PestShield is an excellent addition to our growing presence in the greater St. Louis area,” said Jay Keating, CEO of PestCo. “We look forward to working together with PestShield to enhance growth opportunities for the business and create opportunities for the team.”

Patrick Hoene, owner of PestShield, added, “PestCo impressed me throughout the acquisition process. Efficient due diligence, consistent attention to detail, collaborative engagement, thoughtful guidance, and fairness in all negotiations from beginning to end. I highly recommend this experienced and honest pest control buyer for any small to large company or owner considering a transition but uncertain of the process and the complexities of selling their business.”

“Thompson Street is excited to add a quality business in PestShield to PestCo’s growing presence in St. Louis, alongside our previous acquisitions of Bel-O and Mick’s,” said Dan Cooper, Director, TSCP.
