Over 50 years ago, Dr. Jack Reinhardt and his wife Kay Reinhardt founded Dr. Jack's Lawn Care, Termite & Pest Control. Today, Kay and her sons, Rick and Jim, continue to operate the family business. We serve thousands of homes and businesses throughout Central Florida.
Dr. Jack's Story
Dr. Jack Reinhardt spent 14 years performing countless research studies for Dow and Shell chemical companies, working with a variety of pesticides and herbicides. However, Jack was not just a plant pathologist. After relocating his family from the North to Central Florida in 1964, Jack fell in love with Florida’s landscape. His Orlando home contained many varieties of citrus, banana trees, avocado, sugar cane, pineapple, and various ornamentals.
In 1972, Jack and Kay Reinhardt took their knowledge and started Dr. Jack’s Lawn and Shrub Care. Jack and Kay’s oldest son Rick followed in his dad’s footsteps and received his Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture from the University of Florida in 1984 and serves as the company’s President. Their youngest son Jim also studied at the University of Florida, where he received his Bachelor of Science degree in Marketing with a minor study in Entomology. Jim introduced the structural pest control and termite control programs to the company in 1985 and oversees those departments as the company’s Vice President.
Kay Reinhardt has always been responsible for many of the office duties like payroll, payables, and human resources, and at the age of 89, still performs some of those duties today.

We are so grateful to celebrate my Kay's 90th birthday with our employees. Kay was the co-founder with Jack in 1972. We have been serving our community’s pest control and lawn care needs for 49 years and at 89, my mom was still handling payroll and payables until a year ago when she decided to retire due to the pandemic. What an amazing employer, mother, wife and friend Kay has been to so many people.
