Whoo Wee…is that a Stink Bug or the Dog?

Don’t be blaming Max.  He did not excrete anything noxious.  The truth is, it is stink bug season in Chicagoland.  This annual pest starts to become very active right around Labor Day every year around here.  In the fall they generally head for man-made structures like buildings, which means YOUR castle.  Look for them in stacks of clothing or papers.

How do you kill stink bugs?  Here are some home-made methods.

1.  Soapy water will get rid of some of them
2.  Flick it into a jar or cup and throw it out
3.  Spray a solution of water and soap along floor boards and cracks
4.  Good old pesticides which come with warnings for pets

Better yet, why not get rid of them once and for all?  Do it safely and thoroughly by calling A Complete Pest Solution.  To rid your home or office of ALL of these obnoxious creatures you can count on the same complete pest solution for stink bugs that you do for other pests in the Chicago area.  Just call them today at (630) 464-1542.

Things to do in Chicago - August 2017

"Is it August already? Time to get serious about maximizing your swimming pool time and making this summer count."

Ants are Hungry Too.

Those pesky little creatures want to get out of the summer heat and into the kitchen where the food is…just like your kids do.  The difference is, they come in by the hundreds and disrupt, as well as contaminate, everything around them.  If you have seen ants in the summer in the past you will almost certainly see them again.

Beware of an invasion after a rain storm.  They like to get out of the wet and find the nearest source of food.  If a sweet treat has been left on the kitchen counter (or even its residue) ants will crawl to it.  We suggest that you clean out your cabinets, store food more securely, and disrupt any signs of ant trails.

The most important suggestion that we can make is to eradicate them once and for all.  That is what will happen when you call Chicagoland’s ant removal professionals, A Complete Pest Solution.  We will eliminate all types of ants that could possibly invade our area.  Give us a call at A Complete Pest Solution (630) 464-1542.
