Yes, we are an experienced pest management company you can trust. We have been in business over 60 years serving customers like yourself. Our company was founded in 1955 by J. T. Cordell, Sr. and his wife Willie. The business started in their home and by 1962 they had opened the office that still serves us today. They both worked in the business until retirement in the early 1970’s. The company was originally named Efird’s Exterminating and was renamed American Termapest in 1972, when son Jim took over. He is still active in the business today. In 1990, Chad Reese joined the company, representing the third generation involved in the business.
