Lake Norman Pest Control: A Family Business

Even before joining forces with Go-Forth Pest Control in 2011, Lake Norman Pest Control was a mainstay in the Mooresville community. 

Sam and Fran Newman, both Lake Norman residents, founded Lake Norman Pest Control more than 30 years ago. Offering decades of experience in the pest control industry, the Newmans and their company were well-respected as one of the state’s leading pest control providers.

In 2011, when the Newmans decided to retire, they made the choice to merge their company with Go-Forth Pest & Lawn.

As friends of the Hazelwood family, the owners of this pest control company in High Point, NC, the Newmans felt confident that Go-Forth Pest & Lawn would continue to represent their commitment to professional customer service and high-quality pest control provision.
