History & Qualifications


When Nature Calls Pest Control, Inc. is a small business that was started by Gerrod Walker in 2004 when he decided that he wanted to own and operate his own business. Gerrod had prepared unknowingly but thoroughly for this venture by means of his education in law enforcement at Western Illinois University, his time in the Navy Reserves and his work experience in various fields. After studying the logistics of Pest Control and obtaining his licensure, Gerrod had the opportunity to work for the Department of Defense for 2 years as a supervisor of pest management on multiple U.S. Army bases in Kuwait. He returned to Illinois in 2006 and starting in 2007, he ran his business part time while he worked full time as an animal control officer for the local county animal services. Within a short time, his business flourished into full time employment.

When Nature Calls Pest Control, Inc. transitioned into a family business in the fall of 2009 when Gerrod married Jessica, a woman whom he met early in 2008 when responding to a raccoon call. Jessica began offering field and office support to Gerrod for his business during the busy summer/fall seasons of 2008-2009. She now continues to assist her husband with the demands of their small but growing business.

When Nature Calls Pest Control, Inc. is licensed and insured to provide services in the areas of wildlife and general pest control. They also have memberships in various supportive organizations and continue to seek the education and information they need to provide high quality service.
