About Our Company

How It Started

Our company was founded by Doug Morse in 2002 after a long career in pest control. He received his first license for pest control in 1973 while he was stationed in Massachusetts with the U.S. Army. Doug now holds California operator's licenses in general pest control and wood-destroying organisms.

He had been working for major pest control franchise companies for almost 30 years when he decided to start his own termite control company. His goal then was to protect people’s biggest investment, which is their home. Now, it is what we promise in our motto.

Significant Developments

Doug decided to expand the business in 2006 by providing general pest control services and changed the company’s name to Morse Termite and Pest Control. In 2007, he purchased another pest control company and the general pest control part of the operation took off. Now, in addition to first-rate termite control services, we provide services to control general household pests such as ants, cockroaches, spiders, rats, mice, and biting and stinging pests.

More About Doug Morse

Doug came to Clovis in 1961 and graduated from McLane High School. After 3 years in the US Army, he received a business degree from Fresno City College.

With his extensive industry knowledge and experience, he was able to teach other operators. He also created several courses that have been approved by the Structural Pest Control Board for continuing education credit.

As a termite control service provider, he knew that regular inspections did more than look for termites and their damage.  Rather, they also help identify other wood decay pests and organisms such as wood destroying beetles, wood decay fungus, leaks, and excess moisture.  Regular inspections often disclose these issues before they become big problems and require major and expensive repairs.

Today, Doug still holds his operator’s license but is mostly retired. He spends plenty of time golfing, bicycling, and working in his wood shop.  He and Margie have been married for more than 55 years.  They have three adult children and six grandchildren.

Our Leadership Today

Today, Matthew Morse is the general manager of the company. As Doug’s son, he has worked in the business since the very beginning. Matt continues the family tradition of protecting people’s investment and their health.

“I know people think of us as just pest exterminators, but I see my industry as being on the front line of protecting public health,” says Matt. “Pest control makes a huge difference in our society’s health and gives us the ability to live in cities without worrying about terrible things like plague or other pest-borne diseases.”

He added, “To me, it’s worth the extra investment to use only the best products in the market and to hire, train, and equip technicians who are truly pest control professionals. Our services are never rushed, and we always take the time to clean the spider webs off of the outsides of houses and fences.”
