As of April 1, 2020, Manitoba ordered, under section 67 of The Public Health Act, all non-essential services to be temporarily shut down in order to slow the spread and flatten the curve of COVID-19. The schedule deems pesticide applicators and exterminators as an essential service.
This means that we, Gilles Lambert Pest Control Services, will continue to maintain our commitment to our clients and communities during these trying times. COVID-19 has brought a lot of stress and uncertainty to Manitobans. We have always taken pride in providing relief in stressful situations and are glad that we can continue to be there for the people who count on us the most.
The services that we provide play a large role in the sanitation of an establishment. Whether that may be a home, a restaurant, or an industrial building, we recognize the damage that could potentially be done by not resolving pest issues as they arise.
Our employees are putting themselves at risk in order to keep other essential service providers afloat, such as in the food industries. We are put at ease with the comfort of knowing that we continue to provide support to the businesses and homeowners that have trusted us for more than 15 years.
Stay safe and well.

Pigeons can be admired from afar; they have bright feathers, interesting group behaviours, and their funny walk is hard to miss. But when they make your home their home, they aren’t so endearing.
You don’t want to harm the pigeons, but you do want them to pack their bags and head elsewhere. How do you get rid of them?
Pigeons Cause Problems
At first, you might not understand why pigeons are problematic—they’re like pet birds for your backyard! However, their presence comes with a few risks:
Discovering that you have bed bugs is never a pleasant realization. You may have felt bites in the night, noticed marks on your arms, or even seen one crawling on your furniture.
How will you sleep at night knowing that lurking bed bugs might snack on your skin? Yuck!
Your knee-jerk reaction might be to stuff that mattress into the dumpster and start spraying your home with a heavy-duty insecticide. But this probably won’t be as effective as you hope. Thankfully, you have a couple more options than tossing it in the trash.
Winter is a particularly rough time of year for business owners. They’ve got high heating bills to pay, snow to shovel, and their offices or storefronts may become the target of a rodent infestation. Mice seek shelter when temperatures drop, and they’ll look for any entrance they can find to get inside your property.
A mouse problem is more than just an annoyance—it’s also a health risk. These rodents carry viruses that can sometimes be deadly. It’s important to be aware of these issues to keep you and your staff safe.
Mice and rats aren’t as cute as their close rodent relatives, like hamsters or gerbils. Wild rodents carry viruses and diseases that can put your health in danger. Continue reading
The thought of a bug colony secretly living with you might make you shiver. But that’s the reality of a bed bug infestation. These vampiric creatures invite themselves into your living space and make themselves right at home. They hide under your mattress or in your couch and start families—hundreds of families.

WINNIPEG, Canada – GL Pest Control, a family-owned and operated company, based just outside of Winnipeg, Manitoba, is pleased to announce that they are using a state-of-the-art Computer Aided Dispatch program to slash response times and ensure that their customers get same-day or next-day service.
The management team at GL Pest Control recognizes the importance of a speedy response for their customers who are concerned or worried about a pest control issue. The company recently employed more staff and purchased more vehicles to cope with the increased demand for their services. However, they also wanted to utilize all of their vehicles as efficiently as possible to maximize the number of clients they could deal with daily. Using the new software, the company owner is now able to ensure that all jobs are being taken care of quickly, without compromising the high standards set by the company. All of the vehicles are designated to separate areas across the city, and the target is to ensure that all customers receive service as soon as possible.
“As a company, we are very customer-orientated, we understand that our industry is unique and that when customers have a pest control problem, they want a site visit ideally on the same day,” said owner, Gilles Lambert. “Although adding new vehicles and crew members to the team increased our capacity, I was convinced that there had to be a more efficient way to maximize our efficiency. After extensive research, we found the perfect piece of computer software, which enables us to respond to calls quickly and efficiently. This improves our response times and maximizes our business potential. As a consequence, our reputation continues to grow, and I am already contemplating adding more staff and vehicles to the business.”
Gilles Lambert Pest Control Services Inc. started as a small one-man company. After much hard work and effort, the company developed, and because of its integrity and many satisfied customers, it has flourished into what it is today – the largest independent pest control service company in Manitoba. The company is proactive, using current techniques and innovations to discover treatment methods that advance its competitive position. The company has 6 full-time service vehicles, 8 licensed technicians & 2 full-time administrative assistants. The company first began in St. Jean Baptiste, Manitoba, and has relocated just on the outskirt of Winnipeg, Manitoba, which is more centrally located to serve all of Winnipeg and surrounding areas.
