Morris Pest Control
In 1948 Winford and Dorothy relocated to Jackson, TN. While in Jackson, Winford created Morris Pest Control. His company grew into one of the largest pest control companies in West Tennessee.
Back to Memphis
After growing up in the pest control industry, Winford's son, Lanier, founded James Pest Management in 1971. He opened the first location in Memphis, TN.
After decades of success in the pest control industry, Lanier decided to open a new location in Columbus, MS.
In 2016, Lanier decided to broaden the company's service range by opening a new location in Springhill, TN, just outside of Nashville.
Since opening the first location in 1971, Lanier has guided his son Shane in his footsteps. Currently, Shane hold the position of Vice President of the company with plans to take over when Lanier retires.
