Cook's began in 1928 by John L. Cook in Decatur, Alabama, as North Alabama Termite Control. The termite control industry was just beginning and had no trade magazines or specialized equipment. Tools had to be adapted for use in the developing industry. Providing protection from "little white ants," later known as termites, was the focus of John Cook's business. He was a pioneer in the industry, and as the years progressed, his conviction deepened as he saw a definite need for protecting.. residential and commercial buildings. At his death in 1950, son John R. Cook felt compelled to fulfill the five-year termite guarantees his father had contracted. Having graduated with a degree in architecture from Georgia Tech, he gave up a promising career in the field he loved and and returned to Decatur with his wife Jo. In addition to termite protection, he added pest control and changed the name to Cook's Pest Control. Architectural training had instilled within him an attention to detail that was beneficial in growing a pest control business. Under his leadership, Cook’s grew from one full-time employee and only a few accounts to become the seventh largest pest control company in the United States. John Cook and his wife Jo have stressed basic themes in building Cook's Pest Control, including honesty, courtesy, respect, and customer satisfaction. Their philosophy of providing quality service and a good place to work has been the foundation of the company.
