Structural Pest Control

The Georgia Department of Agriculture (GDA) regulates all companies and operators providing structural pest control services within the State of Georgia.  We make sure that consumers get safe, standardized, and quality pest control services.



  • About this Program

    Georgia licenses and regulates pest management professionals who specialize in structural pest control: inspecting for and eliminating unwanted insects and/or animals in or around structures. All people or businesses performing this service must have a structural pest control company license.

    The Structural Pest Division (SPD) protects the health, safety and welfare of Georgians and safeguards the environment by licensing, regulating, and enforcing state and federal structural pesticide laws. We aim to promote compliance, prevent human and environmental harm, and deliver exemplary customer service to the public and the industry. We provide compliance assistance, education, and consumer protection, and we pursue regulatory actions when appropriate.
