N.C. Structural Pest Control Committee annouces case settlements

RALEIGH –The N.C. Structural Pest Control Committee recently approved settlement agreements for cases in Pender and Moore counties:

The committee approved the following:

  • Michael Fanning of Advanced Pest & Lawn in Burgaw agreed to pay $800 for failing to supervise and keep accurate records of structural pest control work done by Johnsie McSwain of Carolina Bed Bug Dog in Greensboro. McSwain is a registered technician under Fanning’s structural pest control license. Fanning also failed to notify the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ Structural Pest Control and Pesticides Division that Advanced Pest & Lawn was also doing business as Carolina Bed Bug Dog. He also failed to request authorization to operate a branch office more than 75 miles away from his location.
  • Michael A. Cole of Southern Pines agreed to pay $800 for making false statements about high moisture levels in a crawl space at a residential property in Whispering Pines. The homeowners paid Cole’s employer, Terminix Company of North Carolina, $2,530 for installation of a dehumidifier. A second company and an inspector from the Structural Pest Control and Pesticides Division found that moisture-level readings were within the normal range. Terminix refunded the homeowner’s payment. In a related settlement, Albert S. Jourdan of Southern Pines, a licensee with Terminix Company of North Carolina, agreed to pay $600 for failing to supervise structural pest control work being done under his license.
