Inc. Magazine Reveals Its Annual List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000

For the 2nd Year in a Row, Natural State Pest Control Makes the Inc. 5000 list, Ranking No. 4,026 in the Nation and No. 14 in the State of Arkansas

LOWELL, September 16, 2022 – Last month, Inc. magazine announced that Natural State Pest Control is No. 4,026 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, recognizing the ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in the United States. The distinguished list reflects the most successful companies within our economy’s most innovative segment—its independent businesses. Companies such as Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Zappos, Patagonia, and many other household names first gained national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000 list.

“This is a huge honor for our Natural State Pest team and really a testament to the hard work they put in each and every day,” says Trent Ragar, owner and founder of Natural State Pest Control. “From our 1500 five-star reviews, we know our clients love the friendly service, reduced risk products, and most importantly, having a pest free business or home!”

The companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 have achieved great success while demonstrating staying power and sustainability, despite ongoing supply chain issues, labor shortages, rising costs of fuel and materials, and the lasting effects of the pandemic.

A complete list of the Inc. 5000 can be found at The ranking includes company profiles of the honorees along with an interactive database that can be sorted by industry and region. The top 500 companies were also featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which is now available to the public.

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.”

“Being recognized two years in a row as one of the fastest growing companies in the country shows that it does matter who you choose for your home services like pest control. Locally owned business is alive and well in Arkansas, and we will keep growing and pushing forward until every Arkansan sleeps in a safe, pest-free home,” says owner and founder of Natural State Pest Control, Trent Ragar.
