About Carolina Exterminating
Carolina Exterminating was founded by Andrew "Drew" Leilich and his family.
Drew Leilich didn’t spend his childhood dreaming of growing up and killing bugs all over Charleston, but one day in 1998 he answered a newspaper ad and began an adventure that still hasn’t ended. He started his career with Terminix where he was a top producer and a territorial manager in his five years there. After Terminix, he worked for Palmetto Exterminators, where he also excelled and increased his expertise even more.
Eventually, Drew felt he needed a change, and after a short venture outside of pest control, he opened Carolina Exterminating, building his business one customer at a time, mostly restaurants in the beginning, and growing it into a respected area business with a commercial customer base of more than 65 restaurants, not to mention his many residential clients in the tri-county area. He prides himself on an almost 100% retention rate, which he credits to his company’s philosophy of treating clients as partners in pest control. Having the clients involved in the process helps Drew and his team stay aware of exactly what’s going on in a location and gives them the ability of make better decisions about the pest management needs for each client.
Drew and the other skilled members of his team, including his wife Katie, also a licensed commercial applicator, work diligently to bring Charleston the best integrated pest management options in the area.
