Company Review

Founded in 1959, Killum Pest Control is family owned and operated and serves residential and commercial properties. With over 60 years of service, it is the largest pest control company in Brazoria County, Texas. It serves Houston, Iowa Colony, Friendswood, Pearland, Alvin, Manvel, Lake Jackson, and Southeast Texas areas. Its main office is located at 224 Plantation Drive, Lake Jackson, Texas 77566.

Killum Pest Control offers extermination and management services for a number of pests including ants, bees, roaches, termites, spiders, fleas, mosquitoes, and ticks. It also provides rodent control as well as wildlife management services.

Killum Pest Control prides itself on providing its customers with the most up-to-date pest control technologies, which is why the company uses Sentricon to exterminate and control termites as well as the ActiveSense system to monitor all sorts of pests.

The Sentricon system places special bait in the ground around a home or commercial property. When the termites eat the bait it prevents them from molting, and a termite that can’t molt will die. Eventually, worker termites unknowingly bring a lethal amount of the bait back to their colony, which leads to an eradicated termite infestation.

ActiveSense technology allows customers to monitor the pests invading their residential and commercial properties around the clock. Sensors are placed inside traps around a home or business to keep track of trends, which helps Killum Pest Control implement the most appropriate plan of action for a property’s pest infestation.

While exact prices aren’t given until an inspection is done, it has two available pest control plans that start around $60 a month. The first is its general plan which only covers spiders, roaches, and certain types of ants. Its second plan provides extermination and control services for ants, centipedes, earwigs, termites, roaches, silverfish, scorpions, rodents, crickets, pill bugs, and millipedes.

Killum Pest Control offers single service visits, monthly visits, bi-monthly visits, quarterly visits, and semiannual visits. A customer can also pay for a warranty, which guarantees Killum will come back for free in between scheduled visits if a pest issue arises. 

Killum Pest Control has an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau and 4.8 stars on Google reviews. Customers who had a positive experience with the company complimented technicians on punctuality, attention to detail and extensive pest and rodent knowledge base. Others with negative reviews felt that the customer service team was rude and commented on technicians providing ineffective treatments and not providing answers as to why methods were failing.

On the plus side, Killum Pest Control’s website indicates that it prides itself on minimal and safe use of pesticides, showing it cares about people and the environment. Because treatment options vary depending on the pest, though, be sure to discuss with the technician how a particular treatment may affect your children or pets.

Overall, Killum Pest Control is a dependable company, offers effective pest control, and uses advanced technologies to track and treat pests.
