Pest Review.

It’s nice to know who the multi-legged enemy may be this summer whether you have seen any yet or not.  Specific regions like Chicagoland are prone to a specific group of pests.  It is good to be educated as to the types that we might see here throughout the remainder of 2018.  Which ones are we most likely to encounter in the upper-Midwest?

Here are some of the most common –

1.  Ants…billions and billions of them all over the place.
2.  Spiders…a friend of man until they occupy your home.
3.  Bed bugs…they spread quickly and bite humans.
4.  Cockroaches…hiding out in dark places around your house.

There are many more, of course and they must be dealt with…or lived with.  The latter is NOT acceptable!  At the first sign of any unwanted critter you should know exactly what to do.  Call one of Chicagoland’s top exterminators.  That’s A Complete Pest Solution serving the suburbs of America’s second city for decades.  Keep this number handy (630) 464-1542.

Look…They are Wearing Yellow Jackets!

You would think that someone or something wearing a yellow jacket is there to help.  That is not the case with the annual warm-weather invaders with wings.  Please understand that yellow Jackets are small, compact wasps that are commonly mistaken for bees.  They tend to nest in walls, in attics, in sub area crawlspaces, in the ground, in trees, and under eaves.

Here is a note of caution…all over the counter sprays for yellow jacket control are highly repellent; so all they do is make the wasps very agitated.  Your chance of being stung goes up exponentially if you try to eradicate them by yourself.  Don’t try to be a hero!  Call a professional exterminator immediately.

We hope that by publishing this warning in early May you will be prepared.  Chicagoland’s yellow jacket exterminator pros are a phone call away.  They are A Complete Pest Solution proudly serving the Western Suburbs and beyond.  The first time you see one of these winged invaders please call (630) 464-1542.

If I was a Carpenter…

It is the beginning of a famous old song, but in this case it signifies the beginning of ant season in Chicagoland.  Carpenter ants are one of the most common household pests in the Midwest.  While they are obviously a nuisance indoors, these ants damage wood by hollowing it out to make nesting space.

Carpenter ants are also the largest pest ants in the United States.  The most common in our area is the black carpenter ant.  To help you identify this pest the typical adult, known as a “worker” ant, is black, wingless and varies from ¼- to ½-inch in length.  To be certain, look for the carpenter ant’s smoothly rounded thorax.

They probably won’t go away forever without professional help.  In the Western Suburbs of Chicagoland and throughout our area that comes with a phone call to Kurt.  He is the owner of Chicagoland’s ant control experts A Complete Pest Solution.  At the first sign of carpenter ants in your home call Kurt at (630) 464-1542.

What are Paper Wasps?

It sure seems harmless, doesn’t it?  I mean, how threatening could a paper wasp be?  Well, let’s take a look.  Paper wasps gather fibers from dead wood and plant stems.  They mix this with their saliva to construct water-resistant nests made of gray or brown papery material.  Sometimes they are called umbrella wasps.

The nests of most true paper wasps are characterized by having open combs with cells for bringing up their young.  Unlike yellow jackets or hornets, they generally only attack if they themselves or their nest are threatened.  So, the choice is yours…keep your distance ALL of the time or get rid of them!

As to the second point, why not call A Complete Pest Solution.  They are Chicagoland’s paper wasp control professionals.  Since their sting can not only be painful, but dangerous for some people it is best to remove them from your environment.  Call Kurt at A Complete Pest Solution at the first sign of paper wasps at (630) 464-1542.
