Pest Control in Mankato MN

Did you know that a clerical typo in the 1850s is the reason Mankato is not named ‘Mahkato’, the Dakota Indian word for “blue-colored-earth.” Located at the confluence of the Minnesota and Blue Earth rivers and home to the largest college in the area, Mankato is a beautiful, lively town. Unfortunately, all that water and activity also makes Mankato a natural destination for pests. That’s where we come in.

Plunkett’s Pest Control was founded right here in Minnesota in 1915. We’ve been proudly serving Mankato, North Mankato, and beyond ever since. No matter what your home or businesses’ pest problem, you can rest assured Plunkett’s has seen it before and knows how to handle it. If you’re in Mankato and you need pest control, Plunkett’s is the place to contact.

Common Pests in Mankato

Like any city located near water, Mankato attracts its fair share of waterborne pests. Mosquitoes, carpenter ants, flies, and all kinds of other pests rely on water to remain active and breed. The constant college traffic and moving happening in Mankato also attracts travelling pests like bed bugs and stored product pests. Here are pests we deal with in Mankato, and how we wipe them out:

  • Bed Bugs: Bed bugs hitchhike around with unsuspecting travelers. With all the students moving in and out of the U of M - Mankato, bed bugs tend to spread through Mankato fast. Plunkett’s K9 units finds them and our heat treatments wipe them out.

  • Ants: Ants live near water to remain active while they expand their colonies. Carpenter ants are particularly troubling, because they borrow through moist or damaged wood. Plunkett’s can locate and remove ant colonies from any property.

  • Stored Product Pests: Pests like carpet beetles, meal moths, and larder beetles tend to smuggle themselves in with traveler’s food and clothing. Once established, they spread quickly. Plunkett’s can wipe out stored pest infestations quickly and permanently.

  • Rodents: Rats and mice sneak into tiny access points around old buildings, door frames, and window frames. Plunkett’s removes rodents and finds and covers access points to make sure they can’t get in again.

Local. Effective. Serving with Integrity.
