About Us

Arnie and AndyMeet the Team
Checkmate has been owned and operated in Vermont by Arnold Parenti since 1985. Before owning Checkmate, Arnie worked for the company and also for Some Pest Company in New York City, so he knows the industry inside and out. In 2012, Arnie’s son-in-law, Andy Gagner, came on board making Checkmate a true family owned and operated company.  In fact, most of Checkmate’s business is generated by the satisfied customers who refer their families and friends to us. We are honored to work with wonderful clients all over the state.

Arnie and Andy are both licensed by the Vermont Department of Agriculture and their professional development is on going. Checkmate is a member of various pest control professional organizations throughout New England, New York and the East.

We can typically schedule an appointment within 24 hours and can accommodate most emergency situations. We service all of Vermont and offer our clients strategic plans that might include an intense preliminary treatment, on-going or maintenance service and annual inspections.

Checkmate offers free estimates and contracts for continuous services. We also advise a proactive, preventive approach to pest management that is as much a part of your life as other routine home and commercial inspections. Our environmentally friendly products guarantee that no matter how often we visit, your home and property will be safe.
