Gene Higginbotham founded American Pest Control in November 1971 after many years in the pest control industry. He used his experience and wisdom to build a company that always puts the customer’s needs first, creating a family owned business that has thrived for over 46 years. His children, Laurie and Scott, now continue the mission their father began by serving every client with honesty, integrity, and professionalism. Exceptional customer service paired with the most efficient technology has provided American Pest Control with the tools to become one of Northeast Georgia’s largest family-owned pest control companies. Now, American Pest Control operates 8 additional service centers across Northeast Georgia and South Carolina. Services provided include pest control, termite control, fire ant management, mosquito reduction, wood infestation reports, and wildlife trapping and exclusion.
In all of its service locations, American Pest Control places an emphasis on local community involvement. In the greater Athens area, the company regularly participates with Extra Special People, Inc., AthensPets, the Foodbank of Northeast Georgia, local recreation teams, Partners in Education with local schools, and more. American Pest Control is proud to be a part of the Athens business community and is thankful for the opportunity to serve again as the Readers’ Choice for best local pest control!
