Common Pests in Knoxville, TN
More on pests in your area
Finding pests in your home can be disturbing, especially cockroaches, which are not just an unsanitary nuisance — they can carry dangerous bacteria such as E. coli or Salmonella that makes you sick. Once you have a cockroach infestation, getting rid of it can be very difficult, as they breed fast and can be resistant to self-applied pesticides.
Another common pest to the Knoxville area, fire ants have venom which is painful to most and even fatal to some. Sometimes drawn in by animal food, once fire ants enter a home, they can chew insulation and bite you or your pets. Given that infestations can contain thousands of insects and have multiple queens, the chances of getting bitten are not slim. It's important to work with experts to get to the root of the problem and the tried-and-true methods used by Orkin technicians can help stop a fire ant infestation early.
Termites are one of the costliest local pests to deal with, especially if the problem goes unchecked. A termite infestation requires a comprehensive approach that includes close monitoring and field experience.
With advanced termite control in Knoxville, such as IR thermometers and termite detection systems, Orkin inspectors can assess the degree of the infestation and provide several possible solutions. Termite bait, liquid barrier protectant, and dry foam are some of the Knoxville termite treatments Orkin prescribes and uses to target active termite colonies.
Bed bugs in Knoxville can prove difficult to treat — these sneaky pests are hard to pinpoint, but Orkin inspectors know what signs to look for, and can create a Knoxville bed bug treatment plan to help get rid of bed bugs in your Knoxville space, so you can get back to restful nights and a sense of tranquility in your home. Let Orkin tackle the bed bug control — you have enough on your plate.
