Plunkett’s Pest Control has acquired Beast Wildlife Solutions, a Twin Cities-based wildlife company that provides full-service nuisance wildlife control and removal. This acquisition merges Beast Wildlife Solutions with Plunkett’s wildlife division, Varment Guard Wildlife Services, and expands Varment Guard’s service capabilities for nuisance wildlife in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Stacy O’Reilly, owner and president of Plunkett’s Pest Control, says that “We’re excited to have the Beast Team join Plunkett’s and Varment Guard. They bring incredible talent and wildlife experience with them. We look forward to working with and learning from one another in the coming months.”
Beast Wildlife Solutions owner, Keith Markun commented on the merger, saying “I chose Plunkett’s because I wanted to partner with a company that could give my clients the same level of service and care that we’re known for. With this transition, I’ll be able to spend more time getting back to what I love most which is working with the Team in the field and providing quality wildlife solutions.”
About Beast Wildlife Solutions.
Beast Wildlife Solutions began in Southeast Georgia before Keith returned to his home state of Minnesota and brought the company along with him seven years ago. They started tackling bird and bat jobs before moving on to other nuisance wildlife in the Minnesota area. All personnel, including office staff, will transition to roles at Plunkett’s alongside Keith.
