Rentokil Initial has acquired Vector Disease Acquisition, North America's largest provider of mosquito control services, for an undisclosed sum

The target posted annualised revenues for the 12 months prior to the acquisition of around $47m (£36m). 

Rentokil's M&A pipeline remains very strong and the company now expects to spend at least £100m in the second half of 2017, chief executive Andy Ransom said. 

"This is another important step towards our ambition to create a business in North America with revenues of around $1.5bn and margins of around 18% by the end of 2020," Ransom said.
