Savannah’s gracious homes and historic buildings attract more than tourists. With our unique coastal ecosystem, Georgia leads the nation in the incidence of termite damage to residential property. Subterranean termites represent a greater threat to property in Savannah than tornadoes, fire, and hurricanes combined.
Since 1928, Yates-Astro Termite and Pest Control has been helping local homeowners and businesses protect their property from serious threats posed by termites and other pests. Originally founded by F.H. Yates, the company is among the oldest pest control services in the nation. With a team of 100 employees, Yates-Astro is the largest independent pest control company in southeast Georgia with branches in Hinesville, Statesboro, and Brunswick and sister companies servicing Hilton Head Island, Valdosta, Tifton, Thomasville, and Moultrie.
In addition to attracting termites, Savannah’s climate also provides an ideal breeding ground for ants, roaches, rats, fleas and many other nuisance pests. With the goal of eliminating problematic pests before they appear, Yates-Astro offers a variety of preventative treatment programs. For pest control, bimonthly, monthly, quarterly, and annual treatment programs are available to fit the specific needs of each customer. Experience has shown the bimonthly treatment program to be especially effective in our low country environment.
One of Yates-Astro’s greatest strengths is its termite warranty program which is regarded as among the best in the industry. The warranty is solid, and the company is large enough to stand behind it. The real competitive advantage, however, springs from the company’s local ownership. If retreatment is needed or if repairs from termite damage become necessary, customers contact the local office which provides a prompt response only available when dealing with a locally owned company.
For commercial customers with reputations to maintain, customers to impress, and property to protect, Yates-Astro provides a customized systems approach. Yates-Astro serves the majority of the area’s finest hotels, restaurants, retail facilities, hospitals, office buildings, and manufacturing facilities.
Locally owned and operated by the Culbreth family since 1975, Yates-Astro provides a unique level of service to the community that provides an edge over national competitors in meeting the needs of individual customers. A priority is placed on purchasing supplies locally, and the Yates-Astro family of employees is active in the Savannah Rotary Club, Southside Rotary, Executive Association of Savannah, Chamber of Commerce, Homebuilders Association of Savannah, Tourism Leadership Council, and the Savannah Area BUY LOCAL Committee. Yates-Astro also maintains membership in the Georgia Pest Control Association and the National Pest Management Association. With a long history of remarkable service and its commitment to the community, Yates-Astro Termite and Pest Control leads the industry in protecting thousands of homes and businesses in Savannah and the surrounding areas.
