My name is Matt McLaughlin, my brother Jim and I started The Pest Force in 1993 under the premise that there should be a more professional approach to pest management in our area.
From the very start we looked beyond the standard, toward a goal of producing top notch Pest Management Professionals PMPs. The Pest Force was the first company to receive QualityPro status in the Myrtle Beach area, a program the requires stringent standards to earn the right to wear the seal, www.npmaqualitypro.com. We are recognized as Master Termite Technicians through Clemson University and we have received special training on properly performing and reporting on the Official South Carolina Wood Infestation Report (cl-100). We are proud members of the South Carolina Realtors Association. www.thepestforce.com
