Not only do they eat wood, something you probably knew they enjoyed already, they also can eat through paper, plastic and even drywall. Yikes. So it isn’t just your home and its value at stake; your possessions are susceptible to termite damage as well. What can you do to keep termites away? A call to Turf Masters Pest Protection will help keep your home’s integrity and value with Sentricon® System termite protection.

Cockroaches: Nature’s most disgusting creature

There are few things more vile, more viscerally disgusting, than cockroaches. These nasty little insects are synonymous with filth, and they are said to be resilient enough to survive a nuclear blast. And while there are more than 70 species of cockroach found on Earth, Georgia is home to the American Cockroach, the German Cockroach and the Smokybrown Cockroach species. But let’s face facts; the absolute last thing on your mind when you see a cockroach in your home or business is what species it is or any other scientific fact. Nope, all you are thinking about is how to get rid of it and whether or not there are more hiding just out of sight. But wouldn’t it be better to not have to deal with these disease-spreading little monsters in the first place? A call to Turf Masters Pest Prevention is all you need to keep cockroaches exactly where they belong – anywhere but your home or business.


Spider-Man and the heroes at Turf Masters Pest Prevention

Everyone knows about your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man, Marvel’s web-slinging superhero. Bitten by a radioactive spider, bookish teen Peter Parker was granted the super powers we are all familiar with; super strength, the ability to climb walls and his “spider sense,” a kind of biological radar for incoming dangers. But as much as America loves Spider-Man and the rest of the Marvel super heroes these days, we wouldn’t want any of his contemporaries, or the creatures they borrow their names and powers from, in our homes. Spider-Man, Ant-Man, the Lizard, Yellow Jacket… fun in comic books and on the big screen, but an absolute disaster for your home or business.If any of these real life pests are beating down your door, Turf Masters Pest Prevention are the heroes you really need.

pest control

What to look for in choosing a pest control or pest prevention service

When it comes to pests and bugs in your home, you are in one of two camps: you want pests to stay out of your home or you want to show existing pests the door (no one ever chooses the third option, living with pests, if they can help it). In addition to the creepiness factor of having… things… running around your home or office at night, pest infestation can cause health problems, structural issues and worse. So whether you already have pests or simply don’t want them calling your house home, Turf Masters Pest Prevention are the people to call.


Marching ants: Keeping them out of your home

antsRemember that movie from the fifties about giant ants, Them!? Maybe not, but the film featured giant irradiated ants set on taking over the world. It’s actually a bit funny that when we see normal-sized ants in our homes or business, our reactions are pretty close, if not identical to, the actors and actresses from that film. No one wants ants in their home, that’s a given; but what do you do when these pests invade your space? Your first call should be to Turf Masters Pest Prevention.
