Pest Control Services in Independence
Call Us: 816-842-1411
No matter the type of business or the size of your home, you will need pest control. When annoying rodents, insects, and wildlife start to appear around your property, call Smithereen Pest Management Services, an industry frontrunner with more than a century of experience. Our customers know that we can eliminate their pest problems and ensure that they don’t return. Smithereen practices an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach, which helps to proactively address pest presences, preventing problems before they even start.
Preventative Pest Control Company
Infestations may seem to suddenly appear out of the blue, but in truth, they actually start small. A few droppings here. A cluster of ants there. Some suspicious looking wood shavings. When you see these sorts of signs, don’t delay! Call us, and we’ll help by taking concrete steps to eradicate any pests and help keep them from coming back. Our IPM process includes:
Identifying the specific pests that comprise the infestation
Exterminating any active pest populations
Addressing any access points or food/water sources that allowed the pests to thrive
Monitoring the site regularly to ensure that the problem doesn’t reestablish itself
We here at Smithereen pride ourselves on addressing a wide variety of pests, including difficult-to-manage wildlife. We help homeowners and business owners deal with:
As the fifth largest city in The Show-Me State, Independence, Missouri, contains roughly 115,000 residents — and a whole lot of history to boot. Dubbed the Queen City of the Trails, it funneled pioneers from the American East to the western territories of Oregon, California, and New Mexico. Dissatisfied pioneers looking for a new lease on life weren’t the only people to move through Independence. Members of the Latter-Day Saints also sought refuge in the area, and their presence ended up touching off the so-called Mormon War. A pair of Civil War battles also touched Independence, and it was the boyhood home of wartime president Harry S. Truman. More than merely an artifact of times gone by, Independence has a vibrant present, counting among its major employers companies such as Northrop Grumman, Burd & Fletcher, and Unilever.
No matter if your stake in Independence is as an employer, a manager, or a homeowner, know that Smithereen can handle all of your pest control needs! We help prevent infestations as well as addressing those that are ongoing. No matter the kind of pest or extent of the issue, we know how to help your specific situation. Contact us today!
The inspector service advisorand technicians all communicated well with me professionally with clear verbal and written instructions.I will definitely utilize their services and again if this problem persists!

I absolutely love David Easter, kind professional, understanding, I've had 2 treatments so far and already way less bugs. He's honest about length of time for no bugs, non judgemental and the service is extremely affordable. If you've been waiting to get pest control for fear of cost contact smithereen. I'm excited to finally be Ride of roaches and I feel with this service it will happen. I also have 2 cats and the chemicals used are pet safe once dried. The outside of the house was also treated. I can't say enough good things about David or this company.

About 2-3 weeks ago, my tenant reported seeing some mice and roaches. I hired Smithereen and they had someone out the next day. Recently my tenant reported seeing one roach so I called Smithereen back. David, the technician, showed up and fully assessed the situation and gave a full explanation of the new products they can use and how some over the counter bug products are actually making my problem worse. We found “an adolescent rat” (OMG!) dead in the basement. Apparently it was partying hard at the bait stations. David reset some stations, applied other inside and outside treatments and talked about the need for termite treatment. So far, I’m very happy with David and Smithereen. I recommended them to my neighbors.

We had field mice and 🐜. I did everything I could do to get rid of the mice. David came and I worry no more. He did the job it seems effortlessly, professionally and with knowledge of what he was dealing with. I trust Smithereens.
20:37 27 Jul 21
We had an opossum in our drop ceiling and could not get it out. David at Smithereen worked really hard to humanely capture the big guy and safely take him out of the house. He was professional, courteous and best of all, showed up when he said he would. GOLD STAR!
19:54 25 Jul 21
I have been a customer of Smithereen for a lot of years. This past visit by David Easter, Technician and Jason Martinez, Branch Manager was outstanding. That's not to say that David doesn't do a great job by himself.But the two of them together are amazing. I have no problem recommending Smithereen and their employees to anyone.
23:13 23 Jul 21
David our technician identify a major issue with yellow jackets and took care of the problem in a professional manner. He has been out service tech for about a year. I trust his judgment.

19:34 13 Jul 21
Wow! Good work! I watched as the Smithereen techs used a tool to knock down spider webs around the outside of our buildings and then spray for pests. They had the same diligence and care indoors. Very courteous and friendly. And most importantly experts in pest control! This is why we are using Smithereen for our second year in our new location.

Smithereen exceeded expectations. David came out and not only treated/set traps for me, he educated me on what was going on and what he was doing to stop the mice from coming in. He was polite, friendly, professional, and funny!

I had read the reviews before contacting them. They arrived the next day after I contacted them. My husband and I were very happy about that. We have been plagued with all kinds of critters living under our porch deck. Now it's a large raccoon.The gentleman that set up the traps explained clearly what needed to be done.We look forward to being rid of the raccoon.Getting rid of the porch deck is next.

The young man David who did my yard was very nice and very professional he also had very good knowledge of what he was doing and I even learned a few things about mosquitoes from him and had almost instant results I will recommend to all my friends and family

This is the second inspection/service that I’ve received from Smithereen and I must say that I have been blown away by both the customer service as well as the knowledge and great attitudes of the techs that have come out. Brian was incredible, very quick to find the root of the problem and didn’t waste time taking care of things. Monty had come the first time around and was also very helpful, pointing out things that I could do to better protect the house. I was also able to get appointments immediately on both times that I’d requested them. I wanted to wait to see if their service would be as good past the first time and I was not disappointed. Very glad I found them!
14:34 31 May 21
My experience with my previous pest control company was disturbing due to their poor customer service. I'm very impressed with what I have learned from Smithereen and the follow through with my home treatment.

The technician (Ronnie, I believe) came with a mask on meaning he cared about me and my space. He explained he was here for my annual termite inspection. This he did most efficiently and also took the time to check my rodent trap, putting in new bait. He reported back to me with the good news, no termites and the bait that was previously in trap had been eaten. Both of these were news as a homeowner that made me very happy.The description above is from a prior date.Today, December 9, Matt Julian came. He was very good at coordinating a time that worked for me.He is very aware of COVID making sure to wear a mask, using my gate rather than going thru my garage, and making sure to social distance as he did his inspection. He let me know what had been eating in my traps and also looked and told me what had dug a hole under the plastic platform holding my air conditioner. Matt also check other areas in my yard for possible problems. He is very personable and a true professional in doing his job. He is a fabulous employee!!!Matt Julian, just did an inspection for me today Feb 15, 2021, of my rodent traps. The weather was brutal, still he did the job and replaced the eaten bait in my 2 traps. Matt allows calls before his arrival and reports back after serving my traps. I could not ask for more dedicated responsible service.Matt Julian just did my inspection and replaced bait in my traps. Ever so efficient, doing a great job of keeping rodents from destroying my property and getting into my garage and houseToday. Matt Julian called and informed me the he was coming by to check my traps and introduce me to my technician Ron Paul. Matt had received a promotion which makes me so very happy because he has been such a dedicated technician and great employee for the company. Ron did the servicing of my traps as Matt explained his normal course of action to him. It was a very professional transfer of services. I look forward to working with Ron as he continues the task of keeping my yard rodent free.

Called Smithereen with a suspected rodent problem in our garage and within the attached wall. Brian came out to service our house. He was so pleasant to speak with and professional! He gave us lots of tips and tricks and walked us through everything he was doing. I am so happy with the service! He should get a bonus! Lol. He mentioned he's been in this business for 22 years! God bless him! Very thankful for his and Smithereen's services and look forward to our continued business as we signed up for the yearly contract. 🙂

While having my plumbing fixed after the cold weather, I was told there was a dead possum in my crawl space. I called Smithereen and spoke with Ray. We arranged for a time the next day that was convenient. Jimmy came out and removed the body. It was very smoothly done and I was at work on time.

I was notified of our regular site inspection and service. The technician was punctuation, cordial , and very professional. I was not needed since the service has been performed regularly. I appreciate the fact that I did not have to ask a million questions and let him do what he does. It's the little things that matter as I have enough on my plate.
