Planet Orange announced today that they were selected by the San Francisco Giants to take over the pest control services at AT&T Park. Locally owned and operated, Planet Orange has been awarded a three-year agreement to administer pest control services year-round to the ballpark which seats approximately 42,000 fans.
“We felt we needed to make the move to Planet Orange to keep our ballpark running in the efficient manner that our fans have come to expect over the years," said Jorge Costa, Giants senior vice president of ballpark operations. “Planet Orange earned our trust and business with their eco-friendly approach to pest control, which is in-line with our sustainable philosophies,” he adds.
“AT&T Park attracts visitors from all over the world so their first impression is important. It not only represents our organization and Major League Baseball, but also the City of San Francisco and Northern California. We’re excited to welcome Planet Orange to our team to help us meet our goals,” added Costa.
Nathan Cocozza, President of Planet Orange said, “We feel it’s a great honor to work with the San Francisco Giants. We take pride in our work, we consider it a craft and know how to be tenacious like the Giants were in winning their World Series Titles.”
