Histroy of Morgan Pest Control

Morgan Termite & Pest Control was first started by H. Ray Morgan. Ray originally worked for Dewey Pest in California before moving to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1948. While running pest control services out of his car, he held a part time job as a chef, Ray gradually built up enough of a clientele to support opening office, and in 1955 the first Morgan Pest Control office opened serving the greater Las Vegas area. 

Ray Morgan’s business grew very rapidly, due to his insistence on maintaining quality service for a reasonable price. So in 1962 Tay was able to open a branch office in St. George, Utah. Getting his entire family involved in maintaining the business helped to keep a strong familial atmosphere and excellent family values. Through all this dedication Morgan is now a leading pest control company throughout Southern Utah and Southern Nevada. 

Upon Ray’s death in 1984 the St. George location, which serves all areas, except the greater Las Vegas area, was passed on to Don Warner. 

In 2005, Don Warner retired and sold his St. George operation to Dave Kipp. Dave has been in the pest control industry since 1991 in the Las Vegas Metropolitan Area. After a couple of years he decided to venture out on his own and started Dead Aim Pest Control in 1995. He relocated his family to the St. George area and purchased Morgan Termite & Pest Control in April 2005. His philosophies of great customer service and the best technology in the business will be a continued success in the pest control industry.

In April of 2019 Morgan Termite & Pest Control’s St. George location bought the huge metal spider that was on display in the roundabout on main street. The first time Dave drove by that spider on main street he knew that he had to buy it and bring it down to the office. Well that didn’t happen right away. The days after they took that spider down Dave drove by and noticed that the spider was gone. He thought he had missed his chance to buy it. Well within the next few weeks he had made calls to the city and anyone else he thought would know if the spider had been bought. He came to find out that the city has an artist that puts their art up around the city for a certain amount of time and if it sells while on display the city gets some of the profit. Well the time had come to switch out the spider with something new and the spider was taken down and stored away. Dave finally found the artist and started the process to buy the spider and move it down to the office. 

Even though Morgan bought the spider in April it was stored in our  warehouse until we were able to set it up just under our sign. It was finally set up on May 8, 2019. Dave had finally got the spider down to his office. It is the perfect fit to go with what we do. However, we came up with a problem when people started visiting us. The one question that we always got asked was, “What’s the name of your spider?”. Well, thanks to the people of our town and others that we service in, they came up with names and then everyone voted on their favorite name. We now have a name for the spider. Her name is Dixie Long Legs. We love the name and now we are able to answer that question. 

Due to the dedication, hard work, and customer service values of Morgan Termite & Pest Control has become a major success in Southern Utah. At the helm of this company is Dave Kipp, constantly giving back to the community in the form of donating time and resources to local schools and organizations.

Morgan Termite & Pest Control is the largest pest control company available in the Southern Utah area and serves a majority of both commercial and residential customers. It is the intention, no, the mission of Morgan Termite & Pest Control to continue the growth of this company by adhering to the standards, quality service, and reasonable pricing.
