About us

Johnnie Bee Pest Management is a family owned lawn care company serving Lee and Collier counties. We are educated and trained professionals providing high quality lawn care solutions.

Who Are We?

Jared and Sarah Ballard own Johnnie Bee Pest Management, LLC and each bring their own unique skills to the company. Jared earned his degree in Agriculture, majoring in Horticulture, from Kansas State University. He started in the industry by way of golf course management and was professionally trained maintaining some of the top courses in FL & SC  before transferring to the residential sector of turf management. He has over 10 years of experience working with different grass types and ornamental plants. Sarah graduated with a degree in Business Administration from Elmira College. She brings 10+ years of project management and client service experience to their company. 

We combined our skills to start Johnnie Bee Pest Management as a husband and wife team. Jared oversees the lawn and plant treatments of all properties to ensure it is being treated with the same level of precision, quality and expertise that is required at a golf course. Sarah runs the office to ensure everything runs smoothly and all of our customers are provided the highest level of service. We are active in our community, when you work with Johnnie Bee you are supporting a local Lee county family business. 

What Makes Us Different?

When you trust your property to our family owned business you get the expertise and personalized service that the big lawn care company just can’t offer. We don’t believe that one size fits all, as every lawn is different and has its own set of particular challenges.


We will work with you to help create a service plan that treats the specific needs of your property. Our lawn pro will follow up in between regularly scheduled visits at no additional charge to ensure everything is working properly. 

Who is Johnnie Bee?

Johnnie Bee Pest Management was named in honor of Jared’s father “Johnnie B” who passed away from cancer. Johnnie would have loved to see the company we have built and we work hard everyday to honor his memory.
