Matt and Jim McLaughlin

Matt and Jim McLaughlin founded The Pest Force in 1993, after years of working in the pest control industry. Both are Master Termite Technicians and early on set a high standard for pest management in The Grand Strand. The Pest Force is an award winning company and was the first in the state of South Carolina to achieve Quality Pro status.

Jim started his pest control career while still in high school. His breadth of knowledge is unmatched and he is often sought out to solve tough pest problems, and has even been featured on the local news concerning The Grand Strand’s growing bed bug problem. His study and love of nature includes his avid hunting hobby.

Matt is a business leader in the community serving as a director consultant for Business Networking International. His success in growing The Pest Force gives him ample expertise to help other small businesses do likewise. In his spare time he is involved in youth and outreach programs at his local church. He collects antique and vintage pest “contraptions” to remind him of how far the industry has come through the years.

Both men have created The Pest Force to be a customer focused business with great employees, sound business practices, a solid code of ethics and a determination to not only meet state standards but to exceed them.
