I Would Rather Sleep Alone.

When it comes to bedbugs, you had better believe it!  Bedbugs are especially insidious in Chicagoland homes, hotels, and Airbnbs.   The very thought of this bug makes your skill crawl. Once you get bedbugs, they are super hard to get rid of.  If you never leave your home or get new furniture you could avoid them, but that’s not very practical

Here are some tips to avoid them –

1.  Wash clothes from trips to hotels or sleepovers immediately.
2.  Vacuum every day.
3.  Don’t let your clothes touch anything if you use a laundromat.
4.  Install a door sweep at your front and back doors.

No matter how diligent you are you may need an extermination expert to rid you of the problem.  In Chicagoland, that bedbug elimination professional is A Complete Pest Solution.  They are just what you think…Chicago’s complete pest solution.  For all of your pest control needs around Chicagoland just call A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.

The Boxelder Bombardment.

The annual invasion is nearly upon us.  Boxelder bugs will be re-awakening in your trees…and just about everywhere else.  For most of us in Chicagoland, the boxelder bug needs no introduction. This bug is about ½-inch long as an adult, black with three red lines on the thorax and diagonal red lines on each wing.

Here are some facts about this recurring pest –

1.  They are especially prevalent in early spring and the fall.
2.  It overwinters in homes or wherever it can find warmth.
3.  Removing female boxelder trees may be the best solution to freeing your property.
4.  Some laundry detergents will kill them when applied directly.

Are you ready to accomplish that last task to rid your land of boxelder bugs?  We didn’t think so!  Boxelder bugs will be here to stay throughout the spring unless you fight back by calling A Complete Pest Solution.  They are Chicagoland’s answer to complete pest control…especially boxelder bugs.  Call A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.
