Northwest Exterminating, founded in 1951 by L.A. Phillips, was originally established to resolve residential pest problems in northwest Atlanta. Today, in its 60th year of business, Northwest is still family-owned and operated with 14 service centers and over 300 employees, providing green solutions to all of Georgia. Throughout the years, Northwest has proven to be a leader in innovation, with the introduction of NorPest Green, a pest control program that enhances the health of homes and businesses as well as the environment. In addition, Northwest provides other green solutions such as the Sentricon System - environmentally responsible termite protection, green mosquito control, attic insulation, lawn care, and wildlife exclusion services.
