About Lodestar Pest Management

Lodestar Pest Management is a local family-owned pest control company that is built on a foundation of integrity, loyalty, and fairness. Lodestar was built from the ground up starting in 2006 with no debt and very few customers. Over time Lewis Pritchett and Kenneth Parham brought together a top-notch team of pest control experts and diligently built their business, and a reputable name in the industry.

Who Is Lodestar Pest Management

We have a combined 40 years of pest control experience under our belts, loyally servicing clients across Athens, GA, and the surrounding areas. Local pest control experts that understand the challenges of maintaining a pest-free property in Northeastern Georgia. We as individuals and a company as a whole support a number of causes and charities dear to our hearts. For a start, from every bundled pest service payment, 10% goes to feeding hungry children here in Georgia, and all around the world.

Ministry Work

Lewis also travels with his ministry, Isaiah 49 Ministries, to Central and Southern American countries including El Salvador, Uganda, and Guatemala to provide glasses to children. Vision loss is a true problem in these remote villages due to certain parasites found in the water.


This not for profit ministry also helps to stimulate local economies by purchasing much-needed mattresses, sewing machines, hygiene necessities, and water filtration systems and distributing them to these remote orphanages, towns, and villages.

Breast Cancer Awareness

Finally, each member of the Lodestar team wears pink writing on their shirt to promote Breast Cancer Awareness as both Lewis & Kenneth’s wives, survived the disease. Afterward, it became this family’s mission to spread awareness about self-checking and early diagnosis to better others’ chances.
