25 YEARS of OWNERSHIP!
This week, we celebrate 25 years of owning Good News Pest Solutions and we're still going strong! God continues to bless our efforts to honor Him while serving our customers with excellence every day. Even during a global pandemic, He has blessed us with growth and amazing opportunities to serve our community. We are looking forward to many more.
We were happy to get together to celebrate CHRISTmas with our Good News family. Our team enjoyed wonderful food, meaningful personal stories, and amazing music.

Merry CHRISTmas to you & those you love!

TOY DRIVE
TOY DRIVE
This year, we chose to bring our annual toy drive closer to home by supporting the efforts of our General Manager Matt Van Landuyt and his wife, Jamie.

We joined with the Dancing with Clayton Foundation to collect toys to brighten the holidays for families battling pediatric cancer, including some patients at All Children’s Hospital. We had quite a generous haul including many gift cards!

FROM OUR BLOG
Many of the common Christmas tree dwellers hibernate during the winter. But when they get in these warmer Florida temperatures, they are awake and happy to join you in your home.
While some bugs prefer to burrow down and hibernate in these months, plenty of species don’t, like yellow jackets and paper wasps.
Kudzu Bugs just appeared in the US in 2009, but it didn’t take too long to spread. The bug isn’t really a problem for homes and humans, but we can help.
Merry Christmas
