Overview

Our Pest Control team is certified to handle any kind of pest control problem presented to them. Everyone on the team is certified by the State of Tennesssee Department of Agriculture, either in structural pest control (i.e., general pest and rodent control), bird control, and/or wood destroying organisms. We even have an on-staff Entomologist.

Chemical applications are not the first line of defense to control insects and rodents. Instead, we use a combination of mechanical, sanitation, and exclusion methods to alter habitat and remove things in the environment that would propagate a pest population. Only after these remedies are exhausted are pesticides or other chemicals utilized.

To obtain these services contact SIS at 343-9675 or submit a Facilities Service Request.
