October Business of the Month: AMERICAN PEST CONTROL

The Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that American Pest Control has been selected as the Business of the Month for October.

American Pest Control has been a family owned business since 1971, founded by Gene Higginbotham and now run by his children, Laurie and Scott Higginbotham. They opened their Hartwell location in 2012 with the vision of providing better customer service in Hart, Elbert and Franklin counties.

They specialize in pest control, termite control, fire ant management, mosquito reduction, wood infestation reports and wildlife trapping and exclusion. In all service locations American Pest Control places an emphasis on local community involvement. They regularly participate in the Scarecrow Bash, volunteer for the Cornerstone Food Bank, are active members in the Chamber of Commerce and Partners in Education with local schools.  Their newest community initiative is the Gene Higginbotham Memorial Scholarship which will be available to graduating seniors in 2017.

The chamber is pleased to highlight their efforts and work in our community and thank them for being such a good neighbor.
