Based on 90 years in the business, Atkins Pest Control has the expertise and experience to eliminate pests from your home, business or office. We also specialize in not allowing them back!
The top four reasons you should choose Atkins Pest Control:
- Knowledge of pests, their habits and characteristics — whether insects, rodents or wildlife.
- Expertise and resources to control pests while assuring the safety of the people (and pets) in your household or office.

Atkins Pest Control is dedicated to exceptional customer service. Our trained personnel cover Columbia, Jefferson City and all of Central Missouri. We also have specialists in bedbug and wildlife control. We set a high standard for our crews: they must be smart, efficient, and respectful of people and property.
Call Atkins Pest Control to solve your insect problems. We can target ants, bedbugs, bees, birds, clover mites, cockroaches, fleas, flies, gnats, spiders (including brown recluse), wasps, hornets, mosquitos and anything else.
First, we eliminate the pest problem. Then, because the best defense is a good offense; we recommend regular preventative treatment outside and inside your building. You choose the schedule: monthly, quarterly, or any frequency that suits your situation.
- Atkins offers flea and tick treatments for your lawn to keep people and pets comfortable.
- Atkins has experts in termite prevention and management. We also do home termite inspections.
Technology makes pest management more effective. We have equipment and skills to use a method called “heat and treat”. This method is known to be the most effective for bedbug infestations. We give you our best service by staying current with the latest developments in equipment, skills and resources.
Rodents and Wildlife
Is wildlife is your issue? Atkins Pest Control will approach the problem in a thorough and humane manner. Call us to arrange special services such as removing bats from your attic or raccoons from under your back porch. We’ll also make sure those critters do not return!
Atkins Pest Control can handle snakes, moles, opossum, squirrels, skunks and other unwanted varmints. We make every effort to trap and humanely relocate all species whenever possible.
We also offer routine services such as monthly “mole patrols”. These are regularly scheduled rodent control strategies implemented with secure baiting systems.
Trained, Certified Staff
Atkins staff members are trained and licensed in proper, safe treatment methods. Our teams are commercial applicator licensed with the State of Missouri. All our Pest Management employees receive regular in-service training.
We have applicators with Associate Certified Entomologist (ACE) credentials from the Entomological Society of America, which requires six years experience before taking the exam.
Our pest control technicians are Quality Pro Trained® — a National Pest Management Association accreditation. This means Atkins is committed to strict standards for customer service, background screening, drug testing and environmental stewardship. This includes ongoing training in the most effective industry and environmental treatment measures.
Needless to say, this expertise is critical for the health of your family and employees, as well as your pets. We practice Integrated Pest Management, targeting safe use of pesticides only as needed and applied using environmentally responsible methods.
