A strong handshake. Honesty. Doing things right the first time. Taking care of your neighbors, working hard, keeping your word. That is how Tennessee exterminators, Sherrill Pest Control, does business. It was a different time in 1950. That was the year that Horace Sherrill started helping families protect their homes from insects, ants and creepy crawlys. Almost 10 years later, Horace moved the pest control operation to middle Tennessee and his 4 children joined in. After running the business and building a great reputation for 25 years, he sold the middle Tennessee interest to his oldest son Vernon â€œJr.â€ Sherrill. In a parking lot of a customerâ€™s home, Jr. scratched out a logo on a napkin and â€œSherrill Pest Controlâ€ exterminators was officially born.
