Thank you for supporting a locally owned and operated business!


Advance Pest Control began in 1997 by owner and native North Carolinian, Terry Southard. After obtaining an Associate of Applied Agriculture in Agricultural Pest, Terry knew he would start his own business one day. From Advance Pest Control’s inception as a home-based business with just one employee, he has grown the company to over 10 employees and 4,500 active customers spanning the entire Triangle area.
Terry’s mission is to treat all his customers like family. Advance Pest Control has been owned and operated by the Southard family for over 20 years and they have built their business on good relationships. We are proud that most of Advance Pest Control’s customers are referred by other customers who know firsthand of our professional and first-rate service. We invite you to take a look at our reviews, memberships and awards over the years.
