  • Excellent job

    “I have had excellent service from Preferred Pest Control. The technicians that have came to my house have been very courteous & professional. They spray for mosquitoes. The technician noticed a yellow jacket nest in the side of my house that I had not noticed & sprayed that as well. This was very important because I have grandchildren at my house a lot.”

  • Extremely Knowledgeable in the Pest Control Industry.

    “Sam is extremely knowledgeable in the pest control industry. He took extensive time and consideration in making sure that I understood what needed to be done and answered all of my questions. His services are affordable and I would recommend Sam to any of my friends, family and colleagues.”

  • He Explained the Process and He Was Very Thorough

    “Dallas, who came and did a comprehensive review of my home and property was wonderful to work with. He explained the process and he was very thorough. Then a couple of days later Les came to set traps. He too is a pleasure to work with. Two day after the traps were laid I came home to find a mouse in my living room who was dying (proving their system works) and it did not go well. When I went to dispose of it it moved so I freaked. I covered it with a bowl and the next morning I called Preferred to come and get it. (I'm a wimp) Les came and took it away and checked some of the traps. I highly recommend Preferred Pest.”

  • Outstanding Customer Service

    “This is my first year using a pest inspection company. I have been very satisfied thus far with the promptness of my technician-Dakoda! He is always very professional and kind. I like that I can text him if I have problems and he will always call when he is headed to my home to do the inspection. So far I have nothing but great things to say about Preferred Pest.”

  • He Is Well Educated and Current to Procedures in the Pest Control Industry.

    “Sam is a very professional business person; he is well educated and current to procedures in the pest control industry. He has demonstrated the ability to work with and train others in his field and provide accurate information to his customers. He is attractively priced and stands behind his work. He is punctual and works within your schedule demands. I would recommend Sam for your pest control and turf management needs.”

    Lisa J.

  • We Were so Impressed with His Work and Thoroughness.

    “We have used Sam for several things: indoor pest control, outdoor mosquito spraying, and termite service. We originally purchased a Groupon to use with Sam's services which included indoor and outdoor pest service with mosquito spraying. He, the owner, arrived on time, was very neatly dressed and polite. He went right to work and continued to work for several hours on just the pest control and mosquito spraying. We were SO impressed with his work and thoroughness that we also procured his services to start a termite contract on our house. He is a very professional young man and we wish him the very best with his business. We foresee he will do well!”

  • I Would Definitely Recommend Jake and Preferred Pest and Turf Management!

    “Jake was prompt in calling me after placing my inquiry on Home Advisor. He is very upbeat, energetic, and professional. He accommodated my schedule and met me at the house. He was prepared to give us our initial treatment, gave us an assessment of the existing issues along with a plan to meet our budget. I just texted him today after discovering a new issue on our Japanese maple tree. He was prompt to respond even though today is Saturday (Sorry Jake!). I would definitely recommend Jake and Preferred Pest and Turf Management!”

  • We Had Them Do a Termite Inspection as a Precaution Before We Purchased Our Home.

    “This company is great to deal with, we had them do a termite inspection as a precaution before we purchased our home. They found activity, treated it and we signed on for preventative maintenance on a once a year basic. Great news for us, when our first yearly treatment was done, the cost had actually dropped by more than 50 %. You can imagine our surprise and joy. Typically prices rise over time, this company actually lowered the cost. We are also set up a bi monthly treatment for regular house pests, spiders, ants flies, etc. Great service, overall.”

  • Preferred Pest and Turf Management Is Very Professional and Cost Effective

    “Preferred Pest and Turf Management is very professional and cost effective. Sam, the owner, came out to do our service and was on time, very friendly and courteous. He is also very Knowledgeable and willing to hop in and do the job himself. I was impressed with that aspect. Most owners this day in age want to delegate and sit back. Not with Sam, he gets involved. I highly recommend Preferred Pest and Turf management.”

    Tim C.

  • Excellent service and highly recommend this company for all your pest and turf needs.

  • Thorough and reliable

    “We've been using Preferred Pest for over a year. There are never any bugs in our house, and our technician treats the garage, porches, and dock. Always shows up when scheduled and calls to confirm.”

    Cate Roper

  • Great service

    “The absolute best pest control service! Friendly and knowledgeable staff that get the job done right. I am very thankful that I am pest free because of them.”


  • He Is Very Professional and He Has a Personal Touch.

    “I used Preferred Pest & Turf Management for pest control. I have known the owner a long time and I have used him for 8 years. He can do both inside and outside service. He is very professional and he has a personal touch. He even took out my trash once. I think he is very reasonable because if you have an issue, like mice or ants in between times, he will come back and take care of it with no extra charge. He is on time, when he says he will be there he is, he is personable and trustworthy. He is a very good guy.”

    Lela A.

  • Best

    “We've been using Preferred Pest Control for two years now for our termite protection, quarterly home spray, and monthly mosquito spray. We are so pleased with both the level of service and the professionalism their employees display. We would highly recommend them to all in the Knoxville area!”

    Scott Wiens

  • No more mosquitos!

    “Love the service! They have transformed my yard into a usable space. The mosquito spraying works wonders! We are actually able to enjoy the yard again.”


  • These guys are great!

    “These guys are great! They are timely, knowledgeable and professional. They answered all of our questions and concerns! I'd highly recommend them for any and all of your pest control issues.”


  • Great service

    “They always call the day before coming. I haven’t had any problems with bugs since they started servicing my home.”


  • Very Professional, Knowledgeable, Personable and Willing to Answer Questions.

    “Sprayed insecticide inside/outside the house and applied a spray for mosquitoes on the lawn. The owner of the company provided the service. He was very professional, knowledgeable, personable, and willing to answer questions. I was particularly impressed with his treatment process inside the house. It was minimalist in nature - only at common entry points with a very controlled application. Since I have toddlers, their exposure to pesticide was a concern for me. Although we received a promotional rate, his prices for further future service seemed reasonable.”

    Christy P.

  • 70

    “Have had Preferred Pest control for over a year now. They come out once every other month and have always shut the backyard gate back which is a reason I got rid of my previous pest control (I have dogs). Only once have I seen ants in the house. I called and they came out within the next few days and no more ants!”


  • Top notch professionals

    “I'm a realtor in the Knoxville area and I use Preferred Pest, Termite & Turf exclusively for all of my contract inspections. Thomas Crews and his team have consistently displayed excellence and professionalism in every aspect of our business dealings together, and I refuse to use anyone else. Period!”

  • We Are Very Pleased That Their Treatment Provided Super Fast Results

    “Quick response to our yellow jacket problem! My husband has a deadly allergy to this insect's sting, so the huge nest in our backyard required a professional to kill them. We are very pleased that their treatment provided super fast results to eradicate the activity and kill off the entire colony.”
