The Most Dangerous in Chicagoland.

That is quite a moniker!  In the 1920’s many would have said Al Capone.  So what is considered the most dangerous wasp that frequents our area?  This is thought to be the Bald faced Hornet.  Bald faced hornets are distinguished from other yellow jackets by their white and black coloring.  This should help you know what to look for.

It has a white or "bald faced" head, which is the source of its unique nickname.  They are notably larger than other species.  Adults average about ¾ of an inch in length.  These wasps also have three white stripes at the end of their bodies.  They are generally found in forested areas as well as in vegetation in urban areas.

Make no mistake about it…the bald faced hornet is NOT to be trifled with!  If the above description fits what you have seen on your property, please call the wasp solution professionals…A Complete Pest Solution serving the needs of Chicagoland pest control for many years.  That phone number is (630) 464-1542.

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 on the web then call (630) 464-1542.
