When Wilmette, Illinois, residents or business managers find themselves dealing with cockroaches, bedbugs, or mice, who do they call?

Integrated Pest Management for Wilmette
What sets Smithereen apart from the competition? Beyond our decades of experience, we also employ an integrated pest management approach that’s effective in dealing with your pest problems and keeping you safe. Unlike the spray-and-pray approaches traditionally employed by exterminators, integrated pest management focuses on more than just eradicating an initial infestation. Our technicians deal with the original problem and then seek to understand how it occurred in the first place. They then seal up any particular places of ingress and establish a pest-free perimeter to ensure that future incursions don’t happen.
Another one of Smithereen’s distinctives is the wide array of pests we deal with. More than just an eliminator of creepy crawlies, we deal with:
If you want to stay close to the big city without having to manage traffic congestion, suboptimal schooling, and general urban freneticness, then Wilmette just might be the place for you. Located just a few miles north of downtown Chicago, this city of about 30,000 has earned praise for its excellent schools, relatively low crime rate, and an abundance of recreational space. Additionally, Wilmette boasts the architecturally impressive Bahá’í House of Worship (which the Illinois Bureau of Tourism dubbed one of the Seven Wonders of Illinois), Plaza del Lego (one of the nation’s oldest shopping malls), and First Congregational Church and Trinity United Methodist Church (both considered architectural gems). A trio of beaches and the sizable Centennial Park round out Wilmette’s recreational offerings.
No matter your ownership interest in Wilmette, Smithereen has you covered. In addition to residential service, we offer comprehensive commercial offerings for all sorts of businesses, including strip malls, healthcare facilities, small businesses, and more. Don’t let your pest control problems get out of control. Contact Smithereen now and stop an infestation before it gets worse! We’re your trusted pest-control partner.

Smithereen services the home on a quarterly basis to keep my home bug and rodent free as best as possible. I am very satisfied with their service and the results. Old homes have lots of holes and cracks that rodents can find their way in so it works best for us on a yearly service. All the reps that come are really professional and nice. I'm currently working with David and he is great.

Would give 6 stars to daryl if I could. He was so wonderfully professional and thorough. He came to my home twice and each time, did such a great job to check and spray the premises, as well as out my mind at ease about any bugs. My landlord contracts w Smithereen, but if I ever move, they will be the first business I call and Daryl will be my man! Seriously, if you want responsive, thorough, honest, friendly work, these are your people.

Today was a quarterly inspection so the 3 rat traps in my backyard were checked (1 had a dead & badly decomposed rat inside 🤮) and re-bated. He repositioned 1 unit and gave me sound advice for one of the other units. He also asked if I needed indoor attention and I told him, thankfully, since his last visit, whatever product he used has taken care of the centipedes, spiders and ants (I live in the basement) so I didn’t need indoor service. Very professional, very personable. Whenever I’ve had an issue, no matter how big, no matter how small, this company has always responded right away. I’ve had an annual account with Smithereen for 3+ years now and I’ve renewed my service for another year 😃

A skunk appeared in the middle of my backyard and spent the day not moving much. We kept dogs, cats, and kids away, as I called pest companies. None suggested by the Village responded quickly, then I remembered see Smithereen on my way from my office to Costco. From that call on, everything went smoothly. Great communication, updates, same-day service, reasonable cost, over and done. And Dave is extremely nice and easy to work with. When needed, I will call Smithereen immediately.

Smithereen does an outstanding job of protecting my house. We had ants in our kitchen last spring and they took care of it. We had Smithereen out again this week to spray and protect before the ants come back.

Smithereen trapped and removed 3 squirrels that had entered our Dormer through a roof vent. Excellent service!
14:44 10 Feb 21
18:11 08 Feb 21
Very helpful, responsive, and professional overall. Inspected perimeter or house and roof which was amazing. But that said, I wish that they would have provided some specific information or a solution since we heard sounds in our wall, and told the wildlife technician specifically where it was coming from inside. They didn't enter the premises or provide a specific solution despite that, so not exactly sure what to do now. Very competent just not as much follow through as I had hoped.
