RICHFIELD, Ohio — Dennis McClure, technical manager for The Termite Guy, Santa Ana, Calif., won a copy of the PCT Field Guide for the Management of Structure-Infesting Ants, 3rd Edition, by Stoy Hedges.

McClure’s name was randomly drawn by PCT from a pool of entrants for April’s book giveaway.  The PCT Field Guide for the Management of Structure-Infesting Ants was the prize for April, which was PCT's annual ant control issue.

As technical manager, McClure handles day-to-day operations of The Termite Guy’s general pest division as well as compliance and training for sister companies, IRC Services, IRC Roofing and Mold-Tek. These companies provide termite and pest control, construction repairs, mold remediation, roof replacement and repairs, escrow certification, attic cleanout and sanitation, decking replacement and repairs and most anything associated with commercial and residential protection

McClure found his way to the pest control industry after having been “raised” in construction. “It was a natural transition for me due in part to the seasonal nature of the building trades and our more stable environment. Also, I needed work,” he said.

McClure likes that pest control involves a wide-variety of tasks, requires service professionals to adapt to changing science and techniques and, mostly, because it is a people business. “We are mostly a hardworking and trustworthy group providing what I believe is a valued service.”
