Athens Pest Pressure

Residents of Athens, GA, with its hot and humid summers, see many seasonal invading pests like kissing bugs, centipedes, and millipedes. Kissing bugs are dangerous because their feces can contain a parasite that spreads Chagas disease. Although this disease is extremely rare in the United States, some cases have been reported. Millipedes and centipedes are also attracted to homes during the hot, humid summers. They gather in bathrooms, basements, and laundry rooms. While neither pest carries diseases, they both frighten residents with their unsightly appearance, and centipedes can inflict a painful bite.

Mosquitoes and flies are also common in Athens during the warm season. As they lay their eggs in any puddle of standing water, mosquito populations grow quickly. These pests are most active during dawn and dusk when female mosquitoes are searching for blood meals. Their bites leave behind itchy bumps on people’s skin and can even lead to the transmission of West Nile or Zika virus. Horse and deer flies also bite, though only females need blood meals. They prefer to feed during the hottest parts of the day.


Customer Testimonials & Reviews

The Orkin Man was treating the buildings at the school where I teach as l lined my class up after recess. I asked him if it was important to know how to read and do math. He did a wonderful job explaining how vital both are. He challenged my class to do their very best in everything. I appreciate him sharing.

The Orkin Men were courteous, considerate, and efficient. One of them made two special trips to see if the bees presented any danger and were properly taken care of.
