Our History


Efird’s Exterminating was founded by J. T. Cordell, Sr., and his wife, Willie. The business started in their home, and by 1962 they had opened an office.


Efird’s Exterminating was renamed American Termapest when J. T. Sr. and Willie’s son Jim took over shortly after their retirement in the early 1970s.


Chad Reese joined the company, representing the third generation involved in the business.
