The A B C’s of Bees.

Bees have been collected at 24 sites chosen to represent the diversity of urban and natural habitats in the Chicago metropolitan area.  It was discovered that areas of preserved natural habitat yielded 44 species, in 20 genres, and 6 families.  Twenty species were common to both urban areas and areas of preserved natural habitat.

Areas of preserved natural habitat (which indicates Chicagoland’s vast suburban area) harbored a higher richness of species, and the species most often collected in these areas were native to North America.  Over time, a progressively larger fraction of the world’s biological communities experience some degree of urbanization.

That’s a lot of bee-speak for this spot!  Suffice to say that when you experience a problem with bees on your Chicagoland property you should immediately call the bee removal experts at A Complete Pest Solution.  For bee, wasp, hornet, and other pest control this summer and beyond call A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.

Welcome to Chicagoland.

We are a melting pot for people who come here from all points around the globe be it to live here or just to visit this summer.  One visitor we can live without is the wasp.  It is okay to dislike them because wasps are not domesticated; humans typically don’t work with wasps like they do honeybees and other stingless bees.

Wasps can be more hot-tempered than bees, they are to be treated with caution.  If you’re trying to eliminate nuisance wasps who have attached themselves to your home or near an entryway, it is best done at sunset or very early in the morning.  Wasps found inside the house may indicate a nest is living in the chimney or attic.

Wasps are unwelcome guests…especially on YOUR property!  A Complete Pest Solution wants to help you with your wasp problem in Chicagoland.  For more information about the types of bees and wasps that they will eliminate from your property. Visit waspsolutions.net on the web then call (630) 464-1542.

A Real Paper Tiger.

What is a paper wasp and how does it affect Chicagoland?  Paper wasps get their commonly known name from the paper-like material out of which they make their nests.  They are sometimes called umbrella wasps, after the shape of their distinctive nests.  Whatever you call them you probably need to eliminate them from your environment.

Paper wasps are a group of several species of the vespid wasp.  They are stinging insects and are semi-social creatures, as they typically live in small colonies.  Some of the groups related to paper wasps include yellow jackets and hornets, potter and mason wasps, spider wasps and long-waisted paper wasps.

A wasp by any other name is NOT something with which you wish to share your property this summer.  Eliminate wasps from your living area completely and safely by calling Chicagoland exterminator A Complete Pest Solution.  Please visit their bee and wasp website at waspsolutions.net then call (630) 464-1542.

The Impact of Seasons on Pest Patterns.

Don’t worry…we’re not going to make you sit through a course on pest management 101!  We just wanted you to know what may be happening around your Chicagoland home as spring gives way to summer.  Since the hot, muggy summer season is about to embark, let’s look at the insect patterns you are likely to face.

Typically, this is the time of year that insects will stay mostly outdoors…just like us.  You should not have to be reminded (unless you just moved here) that mosquitoes are on their way.  Although mosquitoes won't try to invade your home, their bites and general presence are a nuisance when trying to enjoy your yard in the summer months.

Between ticks and mosquitoes, bees and wasps it can be a jungle out there.  Let A Complete Pest Solution be the solution to your bug problems this summer.  This is the season of picnics, sitting on the porch and other outside activities.  Call A Complete Pest Solution for a relatively bug-free summer in Chicagoland at (630) 464-1542.

Summer’s coming and so are the bees.

Know this, Chicagoland has become a veritable sanctuary for bees.  While human “worker bees” buzz about in offices below, the rooftops of some Chicago commercial buildings are becoming hubs of activity in their own right.  The word is…bees have been dying off in unusually high numbers over the past decade.  We’ve all heard it.

One word…anaphylaxis!  Bee poisoning refers to a serious body reaction to the venom from a bee sting.  We don’t mean to be alarmist.  Most bee stings don’t cause a serious reaction. However, if you’re allergic to bee stings you may experience a severe reaction such as poisoning.  Bee poisoning requires immediate medical attention.

All of this is to say that by now you probably know what a bee sting could mean to you or your loved ones.  To prevent or remove bees on your Chicagoland residential or commercial property there is one best place to turn.  That is Chicagoland bee removal expert A Complete Pest Solution.  Give Kurt and his crew a call at (630) 464-1542.

If I Could Live a Million Years.

How about 300 million years?  Wait, who’s been around that long?  Cockroaches…that’s who!  Long before there were cavemen there were cockroaches.  You would think that by now we would be rid of them.  Cockroaches even rubbed elbows (if that were possible) with the ancient dinosaurs.

Cockroaches are disgusting, dirty and can make even the toughest among us squeamish. These pests live in your walls, your cupboards, and your pantries, and they reproduce like crazy.  It is often said cockroaches are so robust that they can even survive a nuclear war and the resulting “nuclear winter”.

All of that may be true, but they cannot survive the cockroach extermination methods of A Complete Pest Solution.  If you live in Chicagoland and are besieged by cockroaches call one of the leading pest control companies…A Complete Pest Solution.  To eliminate any and all unwanted pests from your property just call (630) 464-1542.

You Dirty Rat.

With respect to the late, great actor Jimmy Cagney this phrase takes on new meaning when you detect these nasty creatures on your Chicagoland property.  Statistics have shown that more rat species prefer to live in the urban areas than rural areas.  Our area has plenty of both.  Wild rats do have a longer lifespan than urban rats because they consume more natural foods in the wild.

The feeding nature of rats is often very destructive, especially when they live in homes.  The rapid transformation of many rural areas in Chicagoland to urban areas as well as the many human activities have caused the migration of different rat species into urban areas.  Rats that live in rural areas are mostly found among tall grasses and shrubs.

A Complete Pest Solution hates “dirty rats” as much or more than you do and they pledge to help you rid them from your property!  Safe and certain rat and mouse control is an art that should not be trusted to just anyone.  You can always trust A Complete Pest Solution for effective rat control.  Just give them a call at (630) 464-1542.
