RALEIGH — The following settlement agreements were approved on Thursday, Sept. 17, by the N.C. Structural Pest Control Committee:

  • Vernon J. Elmore, of Orkin Pest Control in Greensboro, agreed to pay $400 for improperly installing and maintaining a termite baiting system at a property in Asheboro.
  • Isaac Floyd Jr., owner of Mantis Pest Control Inc. in Roanoke Rapids, agreed to pay $800 after an application of Permethrin Pro was found to be applied inconsistently with its labeling at the Halifax Regional Airport.
  • John P. Garst, owner of Enviro Pest Control of Raeford, agreed to pay a $3,000 penalty for charging a Red Springs homeowner for a termite treatment that was never performed. Extensive subterranean termite damage was found, but there was no evidence of treatment, drilling or trenching.
  • William Gibbons, of X-Team Termite and Pest Control in New Bern, agreed to pay $400 for incorrectly applying the pesticide Phantom to a bathroom at a local gym during business hours. The label of the pesticide requires that any persons in the area where pesticide is applied wear personal protective equipment.

  • William J. Ingersoll, of Sandhills Pest Control in Sanford, agreed to pay $400 for performing 42 household pest control P phase and 47 W phase services without liability insurance. It is illegal to perform these services without proper insurance.
  • James C. Stogner, of Termitech South Inc. in Charlotte, agreed to pay $400 for failing to properly supervise an employee working under his license who was advertising termite inspections without specifying the Termitech South name.
