Kwik Kill Pest Control Inc. was founded by Bob Neerland back in 1979. Bob worked for another pest control company and saw a need for more customized service programs that better reflected the needs and concerns of their clients. At that time most pest control companies were dependent on pesticide applications on a monthly basis to prevent insect pests. Bob had a wider vision of controlling pests which includes educating clients on the unique habitats that each pest needs to survive and by eliminating conditions conducive to pest survival. In combination with baiting or material applications to targeted areas this method has proven to be clients best option to gain long term control.
As business grew we have incorporated these ideas in all pest control programs. Today the industry calls this approach to controlling pests Integrated Pest Management. We define IPM as the practice of using all available means in a unified program to eliminate a pest population. By having a thorough understanding of each pests needs for food, water, and habitat along with knowledge of their physical capabilities we will implement a program that will quickly eliminate present pest populations and prevent their return. This approach has helped our business grow over the years by providing the highest level of service and customer satisfaction possible to our clients.
Bob’s son Ryan started working in the company part time around 2004. After attending college Ryan returned full time with a vision to grow the family business.
