Last week Tommy Irvin, Georgia Department of Agriculture Commissioner, issued a statement to Georgians warning them to be vigilant in protecting their homes and businesses from potential increased termite activity due to recent rainfall and subsequent flooding. "Now is a good time to review or re-establish termite control measures that may have been disturbed by the flooding," Irvin said.

Contacting a licensed pest management professional is the best way to determine whether your home or business is properly protected from termites. To read Irvin's full article, click here.
