Atlanta Pest Control Company, North Fulton Pest Solutions, Addresses Elin Nordegren's House's Termite Damage

The pest control company, North Fulton Pest Solutions, wants people to know that infestations can make even the most expensive homes inhabitable, which unfortunately, Elin Nordegren discovered.

    NORCROSS, GA, April 02, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When Elin Nordegren, Tiger Woods' ex-wife had their $12 million mansion in North Palm Beach, Fl., bulldozed and built a near replica of it on the site, many called it an act of a scorned wife. However, the house, which was built in the 1920s, was not up to current building codes to withstand hurricanes. An architect and structural engineer agreed that it would have been more expensive to renovate it than to rebuild it. However, there was another problem - a big one.

Complete Infestation
Before having the house demolished, Nordegren offered any cabinets, hardware and fixtures, as well as her high-end housewares, to Habitat for Humanity, which builds homes for low-income people. However, when the charity went in to salvage what they could, they found the house infested with termites and carpenter ants. Habitat for Humanity's director of deconstruction, Bobbi Blodgett, said, "When we pulled out the windows, the bugs were everywhere....To rebuild that house would have been ridiculous."

Why Preemptive Action is Necessary
The Atlanta pest control company, North Fulton Pest Solutions, encourages people to take preemptive action to prevent pests and unwanted critters from getting in and leading to complete infestations. These include sealing doors and windows, keeping food areas clean, trimming plants and weeds that touch the home, covering trash bins, keeping gutters clean, and storing firewood off of the ground. It's also critically important to proactively protect one's home from termite, pest, and wildlife infestation with a proper preventative service coupled with regular, periodic inspections to curb infestation before serious damage occurs.

Pest Control Covers a Range of Issues
Pest control means more than just termite control. For anyone who has spent a hot summer night in Atlanta, mosquito control is a must in order to enjoy outdoor activities. Beyond the nuisance factor, mosquitoes can carry a number of potentially serious and even fatal diseases.

Although in metro Atlanta, wildlife control may not seem like it would be problem, critters can take a liking to gardens and find their way inside a home where they may raise a family. Quite often this becomes apparent when strange noises start coming from one's attic. That is why North Fulton Pest Solutions offers wildlife removal and exclusion services.

Blake Edwards, Director of Business Development for North Fulton Pest Solutions says, "Georgia, with its hot, humid weather, has one of the highest insect populations in the U.S., and we know how to deal with all of them." North Fulton Pest Solutions, which began more than 40 years ago as an Atlanta termite control company, uses green technology to reduce risk to people, pets and the environment. They have annual service plans that offer a money-back guarantee.
