Fridley, Minnesota, October 2023
Plunkett’s Pest Control, LLC and Varment Guard Wildlife Services has acquired Go Green Pest Control, a Northeastern Ohio-based pest control company that provides full-service pest control and wildlife services to greater Northeastern Ohio area. This acquisition merges two privately-owned pest control and wildlife companies, and will expand Plunkett’s/Varment Guard’s service capabilities in Ohio, for both pest control and wildlife services.
Aly Silva-Mulgrew, president of Plunkett’s Pest Control, says that “We are very excited to welcome Mike Martins and the skilled technicians of Go Green Pest Control as they join our team. We are confident that this partnership will strengthen us both in regard to wildlife and pest control.”
Go Green Pest Control owner, Chad Gotliebowski, commented on the merger, saying that, “I chose Plunkett’s because after they approached us, the way they operated felt similar to how Go Green Operates. I wanted someone who was going to treat my employees well, and who would cause little disruption to the service my clients are used to receiving. Plunkett’s felt like the right fit, and I’m confident I am leaving my employees and customers in good hands.”
Go Green Pest Control was started by owner Chad Gotliebowski in 2017. Go Green Pest Control started as a full-service pest control company, and branched out into offering wildlife services as well when Michael Martins joined the team. Chad Gotliebowski will continue the South Carolina division of the company, while Michael Martins, his Vice President, will transition into a roll at Plunkett’s/Varment Guard’s specialized bird division. Their staff will be joining the Varment Guard Team as well.
Founded in 1915 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Plunkett’s Pest Control is a privately-owned and operated corporation led by President Aly Silva-Mulgrew, and third-generation owner and board chair, Stacy O’Reilly.
Still based in Minneapolis, with regional offices in Columbus, OH and Farmington, NM, Plunkett’s Pest Control and Varment Guard Wildlife Services deliver professional pest and wildlife control services to over 70,000 residential and commercial clients in 22 states.
