Homeowner Plans for the New Year.

How long have you lived in Chicagoland?  If it has been more than one full year in the same residence then you probably know the routine.  Do you live in a heavily populated area or next to a field?  That question has a great deal of bearing on the topic we would like to discuss.

That topic is pest control!  There are ants, spiders, bees, wasps, termites, cockroaches, and other wood destroying insects that can ruin the look and comfort of your castle.  Have you planned ahead?  There is a good chance that you have a landscaper, but do you have a contract with a pest control company?

When you plan ahead for 2018 the critters will NOT be a factor.  If you wait until they show up (and you know they will) then your environment is upside down until the problem is addressed.  Why not consider a regular visit from A Complete Pest Solution?  We are Chicagoland’s answer to year-around pest control.  Give us a call before the New Year at (630) 464-1542.

Termites in the Winter.

Wait a second, don’t termites thrive in warmer temperatures?  That they do, they need warmth and humidity to survive.  However, areas with heavy snowfall and frigid temperatures are still susceptible to termite infestations. While it’s commonly thought that termites hibernate in winter weather, this is not the case. 

As long as termites have constant access to wood, these destructive pests can live in any part of the country at any time of the year!  Many times, colonies invade homes prior to winter as a means to prepare for the cold weather and seek warmth.  They form tunnels inside of your home to wreak havoc during the winter months.

Don’t think for a second that winter’s dawn is the answer to termite control.  Before you find out the hard way that they have taken root in your castle, call A Complete Pest Solution.  Kurt and his team are Chicagoland’s complete termite control experts.  Please give them a call today before winter sets in at (630) 464-1542.

For Mice it isn’t Over until it’s Over.

Just because the weather is changing you can’t relax because the bugs are hibernating.  As the temperatures get cooler and cooler those nasty rodents will head for shelter.  Did you know that National Rodent Awareness Week is coming up later this month?  You may not have even known that there was one, but there is!

Here are the signs of mice in the building –

1.  Droppings.  They have to go somewhere.
2.  Noises.  There is nothing more annoying than that squeak…or the sound of little feet.
3.  Gnaw Marks.  These guys will chew on anything.
4.  Burrows.  They will make nests with whatever is available.
5.  Damaged Food Packages.  They don’t have opposable thumbs to open them!

You know the problem.  Now, what is the solution?  As always it lies with Chicagoland’s rodent control professionals.  They are A Complete Pest Solution.  Just like every other Autumn for decades the right answer to a mouse invasion is A Complete Pest Solution.  Give them a call anytime at (630) 464-1542.

Carpenter Ants…the Pest of the Midwest.

It isn’t quite over yet.  Carpenter ants are still a factor to be dealt with in Chicagoland homes and businesses.  Locating their nests may require some careful inspection on your part.  Since they are nocturnal creatures you may need to inspect for signs of them with a flashlight in the darkness of night.

Destruction of the parent nest is perhaps the best way to control carpenter ants. If the parent nest can be located, it can then be treated.  Eliminate the Queen and you will eliminate the infestation!  So, it stands to reason that finding the parent nest is the critical step in ridding a structure of carpenter ants.

It’s one thing to THINK that the job has been done successfully…it is another to be CERTAIN of it!  That confidence comes with a call to A Complete Pest Solution.  Kurt and his team are Chicagoland’s carpenter ant control experts.  Don’t waste another day enduring the fall invasion.  Call A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.
