Carolina Pest Management
This company was founded in 1939 by David Dodd, Sr., a retired Methodist Minister. Rev. Dodd became involved in the pest control business by helping his fellow man. Times had been hard in the 1930’s and a man from up north was passing through looking for work to feed his family. He called upon Rev. Dodd for help and since he had been trained in the pest control business, Rev. Dodd suggested they open a pest control business, thus Carolina Chemical and Pest Control had its beginning. In 1951, David Dodd, Jr. assumed full time management responsibilities of the company, moving the company headquarters to Monroe, NC, where the company is still located today and remains Union County’s leading pest control service. The name of the company was changed in 1982 from Carolina Chemical and Pest Control to Carolina Termite and Pest Control, Inc. in order to reflect a changing technology that is less dependent upon chemical methods of pest control.
David Dodd, III succeeded his father and now serves as CEO, representing the third generation of family management. The company expanded operations in Mecklenburg and surrounding counties and is currently recognized as one of the top pest control companies in this area. In 1999, the company changed its name to Carolina Pest Management, Inc. to again reflect current changes in the pest control industry. The company is now in its 4th generation of family ownership with Kristin Dodd as President, Sarah Dodd as Vice President, as well as David Craig as General Manager (27 years with company). In 2003, Carolina Pest purchased an existing pest control company and opened its first branch office in Rockingham, NC, operating as Carolina Sandhills Pest Management. A second pest control company operating in Wadesboro, NC was acquired by Carolina Pest in 2008 and integrated into the Monroe and Rockingham branch offices.
Carolina Pest Management is an active member of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), the NC Pest Management Association (NCPMA), the Better Business Bureau, as well as several local Chambers of Commerce. The company is also a proud member of the PestOne organization, a network of some of the top independent pest management companies in the United States. In 2007 Carolina Pest earned the distinguished Quality Pro designation, which recognizes excellence in pest management.
The company always has been, and still is, committed to customer satisfaction, protecting your environment, and continuing education in the pest management field for its employees and customers.
