Madison sits between the beautiful Mendota and Monona lakes. There are also five more lakes in the city limits! In addition to its lakeside living, scenic parks, and historic capital, Madison is home to the University of Wisconsin–Madison. All this activity makes Wisconsin’s capital city the thriving center of the state. Unfortunately, we’re not the only ones thriving in Madison–pests are, too.

Pest Problems in Madison
Pests live around lakes because they need moisture and humidity to remain active, breed, and spread. They live around colleges because the constant moving and traveling make it easy for them to infiltrate living spaces. They live around people because people mean food. Madison’s combination of lakes, college, and people mean it’s a pest state capital, too. Here are the common pests in Madison and what we can do about them:
Bed Bugs: Bed bugs hitchhike into buildings with unsuspecting movers and travelers. Once established, they spread through buildings very quickly. Plunkett’s K9 units find bed bugs with 97% accuracy, and our heat treatments can wipe them out completely.
Cockroaches: Roaches seek out dark, secluded hiding places near water and food, which means they frequently end up in cities near water. Plunkett’s cockroach treatment program eliminates 75% of roaches in one week and wipes them out completely in six.
Rodents: Rats and mice sneak through small access points to find shelter where they can eat, hide, and breed. Plunkett’s can effectively drive rodent infestations out and then cut off their access points to keep them from getting in again.
Spiders: Spiders live anywhere they can consistently hunt prey. They build webs around access points other pests exploit. There are a lot of pests in Madison, so there are a lot of spiders. Plunkett’s can wipe out both spiders and the pests they prey on.
