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 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.
