Pest Control Questions & Answers

Pests are certainly a nuisance, and they also cause lots of questions from Tennessee homeowners. Check out the answers to some of the questions we most frequently receive and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions we didn’t answer.

What kind of bugs are most common in Cookeville, TN?

We encounter a lot of native pests in addition to other invasive species that have made their way into our area. The most common types of pests in Cookeville include ants, termites, bed bugs, spiders, cockroaches, mice and rodents, mosquitos, and wasps. We also deal with boxelder bugs in autumn.

What is pest control?

Pest control is a general term describing the management of unwanted pests in your home. Pest control is essential because insects and rodents carry viruses and diseases that may be harmful to your family.

How do you get rid of bed bugs?

No one wants bed bugs in their home, and the team at Midstate Termite & Pest Control knows how to get rid of them. Our team of pest control professionals is trained in the latest techniques. The application of heat is not very invasive and creates an environment that is too hot for bed bugs and their eggs to survive. We also have other methods if this proves ineffective.

Do you do mosquito control services?

We perform pest control services for mosquitoes and other flying insects, such as carpenter bees, house flies, and beetles.

What does a brown recluse spider look like?

It’s common for people to confuse different types of spiders or be unsure if a particular spider is dangerous. A brown recluse spider is typically about a quarter size in length. These spiders will appear sandy brown in color and feature a violin-shaped marking behind their eyes. Being bit by a brown recluse can result in itchy, dry, and red skin, as well as vomiting, chills, and fever.

When are most pest infestations discovered?

The majority of pest infestations are discovered in the springtime, between March and May. Pests begin to emerge after the cold winter months during those times.

If pests reappear after treatment, has my treatment service failed?

While no one wants pests to reappear after treatment, this Is not necessarily a sign that your treatment has failed. It’s not uncommon to see some pests reappear after your initial treatment. This flushing out of pests brings them out of hiding. Some pests require multiple, frequent treatments. Another factor to take into account is the level of pest infestation in your home.

How long will the service visit take?

The length of our service visit can vary based on the type of pests you have and the level of infestation. In general, a pest control service takes about 30 minutes to one hour. Termite treatments will take longer.
