Swarm Season

When the season starts getting warm, the termites start to swarm! So what does that mean for homeowners?  If homeowners spot fully grown winged adults (swarmers), then the damage may already be done. If the swarmers are found within the home, there may be an infestation in or around the house. Once termites swarm, they may cause structural damage to your home which can lead to serious issues.

Why is it that termites may arise unexpectedly and cause damage? Well, that may be because that they usually have nests underground where they thrive, usually in the wood of your home. Southern states are very likely to get termites. In Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and South Carolina, where we service, the chances are extremely high.

It’s not just important to get rid of termites, it’s also important to prevent them. Getting rid of the termites you already have may eliminate the initial problem, but will not prevent termite activity in the future. Northwest Exterminating offers liquid pretreatments, borate pretreatments and Sentricon baiting in order to prevent termites from infesting a home.  In addition, these treatments come with a 5 year repair and retreat warranty that guarantees up to one million dollars in structural damage.

Pest & Termite Control for Community Management Companies

Community Management ServicesThere is a good chance that you live in some sort of community that is represented or managed by a community management company or a homeowners association.  Apartments, condos, townhomes, and many neighborhoods have a company or association in place that helps maintain the safety, upkeep, and the general property value of a community intact.  For these companies and associations, their needs are different than an individual homeowner that is looking for pest or termite control.

The needs of community management companies and HOA’s are different than the individual homeowner.  That is why we have a team that specializes in meeting their unique needs.  Our Community Management Services team specializes in termite and pest control needs for community/property managers, homeowners associations, and property owners associations.  We provide services for single-family detached homes, multi-unit homes, clubhouses, amenity buildings, and condominiums.

Northwest Exterminating is the right choice for community managers when it comes to termite, pest, mosquito, wildlife, fire ant, and carpenter bee control.  Not only do we have an experienced team in place for community managers, we have a board-certified entomologist on staff, convenient billing, repair warranties, and multiple locations throughout Georgia and Tennessee.

Ask your HOA or community management company if they use Northwest Exterminating.  The healthier your community is, the healthier your home is.  If you need to contact someone in our Community Management Services team click HERE.

Bugs and Your Health

MosquitoesThe early spring has brought pests out in full force and we suspect that they will not be slowing down anytime soon.  Not only are bugs annoying but they’re a health concern as well.

  • West Nile Virus, Encephalitis, dog heartworm – mosquitoes
  • Lyme disease – ticks
  • Rabies – rodents
  • Allergies & Asthma – cockroaches
  • Food Contamination – cockroaches, mice/rats
  • Salmonella – cockroaches, house flies
  • Skin irritation and rashes – lice, fleas, bed bugs, mites
  • Venomous bites & stings (that can be accompanied by severe or life threatening reactions) – black widow, brown recluse, scorpion, snakes
  • Painful stings (that can be accompanied by severe or life threatening reactions) – fire ants, yellow jackets, hornets, wasps

Pests can carry diseases and cause areas to be unsanitary.  These are issues of concern for both homes and businesses.  Even the cleanest homes can have bug problems in an environment like this.  Carpenter bees, mosquitoes, ants, yellow jackets, silverfish, and other pests have recently been invading properties.  If you’re in the Atlanta, Columbus, Savannah, or Nashville area, call Northwest Exterminating.  Our NorPest Green program was developed exclusively by Northwest Exterminating to get rid of pests using the lowest environmental impact possible.  A Northwest representative will develop a customized plan to target those pests while maintaining the health of your home.

We are strategically placed throughout Georgia and Tennessee to service all areas of Georgia as well as parts of Tennessee, Alabama, and South Carolina.  Visit us online or call 888.466.7849 to find the location nearest you.
