ABOUT PROMPT ACTION PEST CONTROL

Our Family Business Story

Gerald Hanson, or Jerry as everyone calls him, moved back to Western Wisconsin from the east coast with his wife Edwina and their 4 sons in 1989. He started Prompt Action Pest Control as a means of supplementing the modest income from his bus driving job. Jerry was born and raised near the small Mississippi River town of Maiden Rock. His small-town, farm upbringing, along with his 4 years of service in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam
conflict, helped shape him into a humble, God-fearing, hard-working, quiet, yet persistent family man. Jerry has more than 45 years experience in the pest control industry. His pest control career began in the Air Force. Before he started Prompt Action Pest Control, he worked as a technician, technician trainer, branch manager, and eventually regional manager in one of the largest pest control companies in the country. During that time, he has always been on the hunt for new products and services, in order to better serve his customers. In 2018, Jerry stepped away from the Company in order to become Edwina’s full-time care-giver, as her health declined. His four sons are now the Owners and Operators of Prompt Action Pest Control.

Our Values

Family First

Our reason for doing what we do every day is to make better lives for the ones we love the most in this world. These people are the most important thing to us on this Earth, and they deserve the very best that we can give them.

Always do the right thing

It may cost you time...
It may cost you money...
It may cost you reputation...
In the short term.

But in the long run...
It WILL save you time
It WILL save you money
It WILL save your reputation

Solve the problem

Customers call for, and should expect solutions. They do not want to be told they have to keep paying for something without a solution.

Care about the Customer

Treat the person on the other end of the phone as if it was your spouse or child calling you about a problem. They are people, just like us. They have good days and bad days, and usually when they are calling us, it’s a bad day. This is our opportunity to turn it into a good day for them.
