Malaria around Canton Georgia

Malaria Hysteria

Here at Canton Termite and Pest Control, we like to keep up with current events, including the recent press release on research that is being performed to reduce the risk of malaria. The work is primarily being done in labs at various schools across the U.S., including the University of California and John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. What they are seeking to accomplish is changing not the disease of malaria itself, but the vectors, or the mosquitoes carrying malaria.

So what’s the big deal? Well, mosquitoes carry quite a number of diseases from person to person, all over the world. The worst of these include the dengue, yellow fever, the Zika virus, and of course, malaria. The specific parasite group that causes malaria are plasmodium parasites, inhabiting the mosquito and waiting to enter another host. The mosquitoes also have a wide variety of other inhabitants in their bodies as well, and this is called a microbiome. These other bacteria and organisms have the ability to interact with each other, and potentially disable the plasmodium parasites by not allowing them to inhabit the mosquitoes. A man by the name of Marcelo Jacobs-Lorena at the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health is researching a way to make the inside of a mosquito hostile against the plasmodium organisms. What does this mean for Canton, or for customers of Canton Termite and Pest Control? It might change how you feel about mosquitoes, but more importantly, it will stop the transmission of dangerous and life-threatening diseases.

Just wanted to thank our exterminator Joel @Canton Termite for not only responding very quickly when we had a minor insect infestation but for ensuring we stay bug free with our normal service. He always gives us plenty of notice and arrives on time and does a very professional job. Also want to thank the entire team... Tim, Ed, William and Brent for doing an awesome job with my home and my rental homes for the last few years. Keep up the great work...

Last year the Cherokee County senior center assisted in me in finding a company to take care of a roach infestation in my home. I had tried several companies but I kept paying and the roaches never went away. William Botts with Canton Termite and Pest control came out and in 2 treatments got the job done. I am on a fixed income and appreciated the integrity and quality of this company. Today I realized I never thanked Canton Termite and Pest Control. I am thankful for what they did for me and refer my friends and anyone else who ask. They get the job done!

HONEST, HELPFUL, NOT IN BUSINESS TO RIP PEOPLE OFF! I called this company and spoke with a gentleman regarding a strange substance on the exterior of our home. I thought it might be termites because the paint was removed from the area as though it was being eaten. He asked me to email him a photo. He called me back and assured me it was not termites. He and the owner of the company gave me some suggestions of how to treat this mold-type substance. This could have easily gone in the opposite direction and charged me lots of $ to investigate a pest problem. No need to wonder if you will get a fair, honest deal with this company. They have a perfect 5 star rating because they have earned it the old fashioned way - by being honest.

I called William for a problem with carpenter bees. He was at my home within the hour. Problem solved. As we chatted I mentioned that in the spring we had birds nesting in our attic, now gone, but expected to return next year. He took the time to inspect the attic to figure out how they were getting in, and seal off the entrance... no additional charge. In short, he solved next years problem as a "good will" gesture (no pun intended). Great job. Great service. Did I mention William is now on my speed dial?

Great customer service and prompt attention! William came out and did our initial application, but we need more treatment. Ed called me in no time and set up another treatment, same day! When Brent came out he was so professional and friendly! Took care of the application quickly, reassuring us that they are there whenever we need them! So glad I am using Canton Termite and Pest Control now for my pest services!
