Protecting Your Family and Home Since 1971

Even if spiders or bees don't bother you, seeing them in your home on a regular basis should be cause for concern. Insects are notorious for damaging structures and spreading disease, and those that bite or sting could necessitate a visit to the ER for individuals with allergies. Why risk it? Call Southeast Termite & Pest Control for economical extermination options, including credit plans for long-term treatment requirements.

About Us

Southeast Termite & Pest Control knows that you have your choice of pest control companies in the Knoxville, TN area. If you dig a little deeper, however, you'll find that only a handful of them are actually locally-owned with a long-term track record of successfully eradicating a variety of pests. We are privileged to count ourselves as one, and would consider it a privilege as well to earn your trust and your business! 

Our History

Southeast Termite & Pest Control was founded by Knoxville natives Carl Haynes and Gene Wittenbarger, who met while working for a nationally known pest control company in the 1960s. In 1971, they made the decision to become partners, and worked vigorously throughout the 1970s to build their business and grow their customer base. 
In 1982, Gene sold his half of the business to Carl, who continued to expand through the 1990s and 2000's, not only in employees but also in its service footprint. Today, under the leadership of Carl Haynes and his son Matthew, Southeast Termite & Pest Control is truly a local, family-owned business.
