Congratulations to Our March Small Business of the Month!

The Lakeland Area Chamber of Commerce would like to congratulate Peninsular Exterminating Company as the Small Business of the Month for March.

For 38 years Wayne Barfield and his dedicated crew at Peninsular Exterminating Company have been delivering pest control services to their customers.  Whether your problem is indoors or out, lawns, ornamentals, critter control and termites Peninsular is constantly dedicated to customer satisfaction.

The success of Peninsular is based on outstanding service. Their focus on providing personalized service cultivates long term customers who in turn refer friends and family.  This commitment to the customer has led Peninsular to have many satisfied customers.  This loyalty occasionally spans generations within a family.

Wayne is a proponent of greater training, experience and educational standards for the pest control industry.  The proper use of chemical agents is safe and effective.  But misuse is dangerous and damaging to people, pets, lawns and shrubs.

Everyone at Peninsular enjoys the challenges of successfully matching wits with a wide array of pests.  Each pest control problem has varying solutions that requires knowledge of the enemy’s habits and vulnerabilities.

Peninsular is proud to have supported organizations like Talbot House and St. Joseph’s Church. In addition, Peninsular supports youth sports teams and leagues. Recently, Wayne has become involved in the local chapter of ConKerr Cancer at the request of a loyal customer. Peninsular provides for the materials needed to make colorful pillow cases for pediatric cancer patients.

The staff at Peninsular share long term experience in the pest control industry and are committed to providing excellent service to their customers. The dedicated staff of six boasts 10-37 years of experience, and Peninsular is committed to continuing education training. Wayne welcomes the opportunity to win your business and demonstrate why their service is a value worth retaining.
