Beware the Bald Faced Hornet.

It even sounds scary doesn’t it?  No one wants to get close enough to see its face anyway, but know this…it is possibly the most dangerous of all wasp breeds that annually invade Chicagoland.  The sting is exceptionally painful and in some of our Northern Illinois residents it can be a very serious health hazard!

So, what do they look like?  They are black and white striped.  What about their nest?  It looks like a large, ominous teardrop.  Where do you find the nest?  Look for it under the eaves of your home or, perhaps hanging from a tree.  It probably goes without saying but, for heaven’s sake DO NOT approach the nest!

At the first sign of this dangerous winged adversary please call us.  We are A Complete Pest Solution serving all of Chicagoland in the elimination of wasps and bees from your property.  Please visit for more details on a variety of winged summer invaders.  Give us a call for fast, guaranteed service at (630) 464-1542.

Say What? They Fly AND they Sting?

Yes they do!  They are the invaders that come to visit every summer…the ubiquitous wasp.  They are one of the most widely feared insects for a very good reason.  Wasps vary in aggressiveness and other behaviors, however, and only a few need to be feared.  Knowledge of their habits is the first step in reducing the fear of them.

A person sensitive to one kind of wasp sting will often be sensitive to other kinds of wasps.  That is not always true with bees.  The first thing you will notice (allergic or not) is local pain, swelling, redness and itching in most Chicagoans.  Some people will suffer symptoms that can include difficulty in breathing, dizziness and nausea.

All of this is no picnic for anyone in Chicagoland.  That’s why we have Kurt and his wasp control crew at  As the name implies they have the solution to your wasp problem in the summer of 2018 and beyond.  Do NOT get involved in this sting!  Call A Complete Pest Solution now at (630) 464-1542.

Bee and Wasp Watch.

They may be enjoyable to watch on a Nat Geo special, but when they invade your space you need to take action!  It is imperative to protect your family from bee and wasp stings.  While this is done it is also vitally important to protect those invaluable pollinators from being killed in the process.  The world still REALLY needs them.

Did you know that annually more Americans are killed by bee and wasp stings than by snakes?  A major difference between bees and wasps as well as hornets is that hornets and yellow jackets as well as other wasps are responsible for very little pollination, but their stings are definitely potentially life-threatening.

For more information about their elimination from your property please visit  We are A Complete Pest Solution protecting the populace of Chicagoland against those threatening stings.  We really DO have the solution to your pest control problems.  Please call us whenever we can be of service at (630) 464-1542.

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.
