Cartoon Critters Hitch a Ride on Arrow Exterminating’s Truck Fleet
Lynbrook, NY…Most people who call an exterminating company don’t expect them to arrive with a truck full of bugs and critters. But Arrow Exterminating’s new vehicles appear to do just that. Arrow recently rolled out a new look for three vehicles in its fleet. The trucks sport a whimsical design that depicts adorable cartoon critters including an angry bumblebee, a raccoon reading the newspaper, a knitting squirrel and other buggy bus passengers.
The fun new look is a departure from the serious tone the company’s founder set when he opened Arrow 70 years ago, according to Jackie Grabin, who co-owns Arrow with her sister, Debbie Tappan. Their father, Bernard Stegman, started Arrow in 1947. While he had a great sense of humor, Jackie says he took the business very seriously.
“Our father taught us to be generous, honest, kind, and professional,” said Grabin. He also taught them the importance of keeping their customers and their employees happy. And Grabin hopes that the new vehicles will help them do that.
“The technicians who drive the vehicles love it,” she said. “When they are on the road, children point and laugh, and people wave and say ‘hi.’ They love the attention.”
Based in Lynbrook, Arrow is one of the largest exterminating companies in the region, serving Nassau, Suffolk, and all five boroughs of New York City.
Its team of 100 employees includes a full-time, board-certified entomologist whose understanding of insect behavior allows its technicians to provide the most effective treatments.
Smiling insects that hitch a ride with exterminators are the only species he has yet to study, although Arrow’s new vehicle design may provide him with that chance.
