Do I Need Pest Control in the Winter?

Winter is about to hit with full force.  Did you think that every creepy, crawly thing was just going to “head south of the winter”?  These pests are not birds.  Make no mistake about it, they are still around invading your home and your business.  Mice and other creatures are looking for a warm, secure place to spend the next 4 months.

We would like to remind you about a couple of things you may not have considered.  Since many pests live on branches and leaves you want to keep these objects off of your home or office.  Fallen leaves and branches should be kept several feet away from actually touching your building.  Look for any drafts or leaks.  Those are pathways for pests.

If you see a bug or spider or mouse around your Chicagoland home or business call a professional immediately.  The right man for the job is Kurt Spurgeon.  As the owner of A Complete Pest Solution he is your Chicagoland year around pest control expert.  Call Kurt before your home becomes a winter haven for unwanted pests at (630) 464-1542.

There’s a Spider in my House.

I doubt that anyone thinks that spiders are a decorative addition to your home.  Maybe the exotic ones in terrariums are the exception to the rule.  Creepy, crawly, arachnids hiding in the corners are not something you wish to tolerate!  As the weather gets colder they look for refuge.  Your home does not have to be their Chicagoland haven again this winter.

Females of some species are up to 2 or 3 inches in length.  If you care to know, their bodies are divided into two segments…the abdomen and the cephalothorax.  And no, just in case you were too embarrassed to ask, the common household spider does not have wings.  It cannot migrate through your castle unless it crawls from point A to point B.

The point of all this is that we can all handle one or two of them, but when you see them all over the place you need to call a professional to eradicate these creatures.  The right man for the job is Kurt Spurgeon.  As the owner of A Complete Pest Solution he is your Chicagoland spider removal expert.  Call Kurt at (630) 464-1542 before your home becomes a giant nest.
