Frequently Asked Questions About Pest Control

Whether you own a home or business, pest control is a crucial part of keeping your property, family, or employees safe from the dangers of pests. Tennessee is prone to pest problems all year long due to our climate. From termites to bed bugs, homeowners need to stay vigilant about preventing pest infestations by teaming up with a professional pest control company.
When you work with a professional, pest control is completely safe for you and your family. In fact, trying to administer pest control products you picked up from your local store is actually more dangerous. Russell’s Pest Control is committed to the safety of our services by:
  1. Using EPA-approved products
  2. Taking an eco-friendly approach
  3. Focusing on pest prevention and IPM practices
With pest prevention as the focus, you can trust we will keep you safe from the dangers of pests.
To keep pests away for good, it’s recommended to have regular services from a pest management team. When you have a pest control service, you will start to see the effects of treatment almost immediately. If you are dealing with an infestation, a pest control treatment will quickly go into effect to put a stop to the pest activity. If you are still noticing pest problems after a few days, it’s best to check in with your technician. Serious infestations may take more treatments to completely get rid of the problem.
Due to our moderate climate—hot muggy summers and cold, wet winters—Tennessee is a breeding ground for all types of pest problems. In Knoxville, we receive the most calls for the following pests:
If you want to prevent pests before they infest your home or business, quarterly pest control is a wise choice. When your home is routinely inspected by a technician, you can trust any pest problems are stopped before they even start. Regular services also save you from the high costs and dangers of dealing with a pest infestation down the line.
If you have an upcoming scheduled visit from a professional pest management company, you may be wondering if you need to prepare for the service. When working with a certified expert like Russell’s Pest Control, you can trust that you will be provided with a list of specific prep steps to be completed beforehand. Your exterminator will walk you through the whole process, from prep to what to expect after the treatment is done. Common preparation measures include clearing the premises, making sure your pets are indoors, and storing items away securely.
A trustworthy pest control company will be able to show that they have comparable licenses and insurance to the most established and reputable exterminators. It’s crucial that your trusted company has liability insurance to protect you against any further damage that is caused to your property during the extermination process. At Russell’s, we are happy to show proof of our accreditations and licenses upon request.
Many people believe they can handle a pest problem on their own. While this may be the case for very minor instances, it’s best to get professional pest control. Here’s why:
  1. DIY pest control is ineffective and dangerous. Store-bought products can be filled with chemicals. When applied without a professional’s guidance, this can be dangerous for you and your employees. In addition, home remedies are rarely strong enough to control a serious pest problem.
  2. Professional pest control companies focus on prevention. This means inspecting your property to pinpoint things that could leave you vulnerable to infestations. Exclusion efforts can work to keep pests out in the first place. At Russell’s, we focus on prevention, not reaction.
  3. Especially for businesses, it’s always best to leave it to the experts. Trying to deal with pests on your own is a gamble and could cause you to fail inspections—not to mention put your employees and customers at risk.

At Russell’s Pest Control, we know your reputation matters. We also understand how sightings of roaches, flies, and other pests might damage the brand your company has worked hard to build—not to mention the health and safety risks these pests may introduce.

Our commercial pest management services focus on pest prevention, which works to avoid infestations from ever starting in schools, restaurants, hotels, and more. Partner with Russell’s for year-round services to protect people, property, and of course, your brand.
