With a long-running, strongly established reputation in the Midwest, Smithereen Pest Management Services can get you back to normal in no time flat. Our customers know they can count on Smithereen to get rid of their pests and keep them out, no matter if it’s a single-family residence, sprawling commercial complex, or healthcare facility. Our integrated pest management approach eliminates insects and rodents while protecting you, your family, and your pets from unwanted side effects.
Integrated Pest Management for Winnetka
Every pest control company will pledge to eliminate your pest problem, but not all can promise to do so in a people- and environmentally friendly way. Smithereen uses an integrated pest management approach, which emphasizes prevention just as much as extermination. In addition to dealing with your current infestation, we will discover what started your pest problem, address it, and then monitor your property to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. We seal potential entryways and establish perimeters to ensure that pests won’t return.
Simthereen’s pest-management approach includes:
Comprehensively evaluating your pest problem
Finding the conditions and causes that are attracting pests
Creating a special plan for extermination and future pest control
Smithereen also manages a wide array of pest types, including:
No one likes coming in second — but it must not have stung too much for 12,000-person-strong town of Winnetka, Illinois. Bloomberg.com listed Winnetka as the second-wealthiest place in The Prairie State in terms of average annual household income. Indeed, the city always seemed destined for distinction. Founded in 1836 by a Vermont family that entrepreneurially started a tavern to service travelers on the Green Bay Trail post road, Winnetka soon added a private school not long after. During the early 20th century, famous architects began to make their mark on Winnetka. Architectural admirers may notice a number of noteworthy structures scattered throughout the area, but even ordinary film fans can recognize 671 Lincoln Avenue. It’s the famous house from the 1990 hit Home Alone.
No matter your type of property, having a pest control plan in place ensures that your business — and your life — can continue uninterrupted. Smithereen has more than a century of pest-control experience throughout the Midwest and is happy to help homeowners and businesses in Winnetka. Whether you’re dealing with common bugs or unexpected wildlife, call us for all of your Winnetka pest control needs!

Terrance has been our tech since we first started using Smithereen. Once COVID hit, he became our home’s only regular visitor. and a valued support person to our family. His encyclopedic knowledge and warm, gracious people skills are outstanding traits that we’ve come to anticipate whenever we know he’s coming for an inspection. We always know he’ll be enthusiastic, funny, attentive to our kids and dogs, and willing to go the extra mile to put us at ease. We realize how funny this sounds - who gets that excited to see the pest control guy? But with Terrance, it’s true. We look forward to working with him that much. He’s a great guy and a tremendous asset to Smithereen. We feel that he deserves a major promotion into management.

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.
22:57 15 Apr 21
We use Smithereen for routine pest control, wasps and occasional wildlife removal (skunks). The pricing is fair, and our particular service technician is terrific – knowledgeable, thorough and friendly.
