Treating Wood Destroying Insects.

In nearly every case your mortgage lender will require that a wood destroying insect infestation inspection is completed on the property you wish to purchase prior to settlement.  This will insure that it does not have an active infestation or major structural damage from wood destroying insects.

Some examples are –

1.  Termites.  They have been around for hundreds of millions of years.
2.  Wood boring beetles.  There are several different varieties!
3.  Carpenter ants…easy to recognize being black or black and red.

If you are investing in a new castle you simply must have a thorough inspection for these and other creatures before you put your name on the bottom line.  The answer in suburban Chicagoland is A Complete Pest Solution.  A professional wood destroying insect detector will eradicate the problem before you move in.  Just call (630) 464-1542.

Tick, Tick, Tick.

Yes, the clock is ticking.  Warmer weather in Chicagoland will bring out the fleas and ticks before you know it.  Some ticks are notorious for carrying the bacterium that causes Lyme Disease in humans. Rest assured that the American Dog Tick is NOT one of them.  But remember, that does not make it entirely harmless either!

If you have not seen one, and we hope that you don’t, ticks are 8-legged arachnids though they are not spiders. They do not have wings and cannot fly, but they are adept at latching on to clothes, fur and hair that wisps past them within their reach.  The American Dog Tick will feed on just about any animal it can hook its legs onto.

It is just one of the many invaders that may be hanging around your property in the upcoming warmer weather.  Ticks, fleas, spiders, and many other creepy crawly things are set to invade your property.  When (or better yet before) they do, pick up the phone and call Kurt at A Complete Pest Solution, Suburban Chicago’s pest control experts at (630) 464-1542.
