The Good

  • Home Protection Program
  • 20 Point Inspection
  • EnviroGuard

Home Protection Program

Wil-Kil's flagship program is their Home Protection Program. This program offers:

  • Initial 20-point inspection and customized treatment
  • Protection from over twelve pests

20 Point Inspection

The 20-point inspection of a customer's home and property pinpoints problem areas. After the inspection, Wil-Kil suggests the appropriate structural and environmental changes to eliminate current or potential pest problems. Then they develop and implement an individualized and focused strategy to help protect a customer's home and property from pests. Another bonus: Wil-Kil's services for homes are performed in an environmentally conscious manner using the following:

  • Thorough inspections
  • Monitoring devices
  • Mechanical and physical controls
  • Exclusion practices
  • The use of chemical controls only when necessary

EnviroGuard

Also worth mentioning is Wil-Kil's other premier residential program, EnviroGuard. This program was designed to balance cost-effectiveness and eco-friendly practices. EnviroGuard is offered in Two tiers:

EnviroGuard® Basic:
  • Starts at $29/month (initial service fees may apply)
  • Covers 21 common pests
  • Ongoing warranty
  • Includes three scheduled visits with exterior barrier treatments each time and interior upon request
  • Excludes rodents, fleas, bed bugs, termites, mosquitoes, and ticks
EnviroGuard® Standard:
  • Starts at $33/month (initial service fees may apply)
  • Covers 21 common pests and rodents
  • Ongoing warranty
  • Includes four scheduled visits - three exterior barrier treatments, one interior treatment in winter, additional interior upon request
  • Excludes fleas, bed bugs, termites, mosquitoes and ticks

Commercial and Industrial

For commercial and industrial customers, Wil-Kil offers IPM (Integrated Pest Management) Programs. These IPM programs are modular, giving customers choices in services and covered pests. This allows them to zero in on their target problem for simple, effective solutions to all industry-related pest problems in all the company's locations. Industries Wil-Kil provides Integrated Pest Management programs to:

  • Campgrounds
  • Educational Institutions
  • Food and Beverage Processing
  • Food and Non-Food Retail
  • Healthcare
  • Lodging and Hospitality
  • Manufacturing
  • Multi-Unit Housing
  • Property Management
  • Restaurant and Food Service
  • Warehouse and Distribution

Final note: One seemingly minor but significant detail is that Wil-Kil has a separate phone number for residential and commercial inquires. This makes for more compatible services to fit the needs of two very different customer bases. Separate phone lines also allows there to be customer service specialization.

The Bad

  • Missing Fee Information
  • Lacking Information

Missing Fee Information

Wil-Kil falls short with providing potential customers with a clear picture of how much their services will cost. They do better than most by mentioning a monthly fee for their EnviroGuard programs, but simultaneously "hint" at initial fees that may apply. (Chances are they will).

Lacking Information

Their website is lacking in some crucial information; we would like to see more information regarding:

  • Money-back guarantees
  • Re-treatment guarantees
  • Liability insurance

The Bottom Line

Wil-Kil has been in business for 93 years, offering quality services to both homes and businesses. It appears evident that they have a solid reputation and are worth checking out. Although they fail to disclose some key preliminary pricing information, the monthly pricing they do reveal is extremely affordable for homeowners. It is also a worthy consideration for anyone interested in environmentally friendly pest control.
