It’s Time for a Visit from your Ant.

For some of us that would be good news, but note the spelling above.  Your mom’s sister may be visiting but so are thousands of ANTS that invade the homes of Chicagoland.  Ant activity indoors may actually decrease in winter, but observing ant swarmers or foragers during the cold weather months may indicate that an ant colony exists somewhere inside your home.

Here are some types that are looking for food and shelter –

1.  Carpenter ants…known to feed on kitchen scraps
2.  The odorous house ant…it is called that because of an unpleasant odor when it’s crushed
3.  Pavement ants…generally slower moving
4.  The Pharaoh ant…found sometimes where there are many people.  They feed on blood!

Ants, ants, and more ants…they will only multiply unless they are stopped immediately.  To do that, call A Complete Pest Solution serving Chicagoland’s pest extermination needs for decades.  Turn to the professionals at A Complete Pest Solution when ants or any other unwanted multi-legged creatures invade your home.  Just call (630) 464-1542.

Don’t Get Cocky…We’re not out of the Woods Yet!

Just because summer is nearly over doesn’t mean that yellow jackets are going away any time soon.  We know that typically, summer is the time when yellow jackets thrive.  Hot weather gives yellow jackets more energy to zip around and search for food.  It is best to steer clear of yellow jackets on a muggy day in Chicagoland.

This is what you may not know.  As the cold weather of winter approaches, it drives yellow jackets into a feeding frenzy.  This can bring them into contact with humans on the last few warm afternoons of fall.  It can also cause them to explore holes in door and window screens.  It is imperative to protect your home and your family against this!

To help you with that endeavor, there is yellow jacket exterminator A Complete Pest Solution.  They serve Chicagoland as an eliminator of creatures with more legs than ours…especially the ones that are equipped with wings.  Always keep this phone number handy (630) 464-1542.  And remember one of the Chicago area’s premier pest control companies A Complete Pest Solution.
