Hit the Pavement and Get Out of My House.

You may have wanted to say that to certain humans, but you definitely want to convey that message to pavement ants in your Chicagoland home.  Pavement ants are one of the most common species in the U.S…so common, in fact, they are often not viewed as much of a nuisance…until they invade your world, that is!

Here are some of the characteristics of the pavement ant –

1.  They are about 1/8 to 1/16th inch long.
2.  They have grooves on their head and thorax.
3.  Their stinger is in their last abdominal segment.
4.  Queens have wings and are twice as large as the workers.

Now, the important information…how to get them out of your environment.  The answer, as usual, is A Complete Pest Solution specializing in the extermination of ants and other critters that invade Chicagoland in the summer.  If you have an ant problem, call A Complete Pest Solution immediately at (630) 464-1542.

How Many Legs Do These Things Have?

It’s not a question you want to be asking when you turn on your kitchen light.  If you're tired of being surprised by millipedes around your home, work to get rid of them and prevent them from coming back. The first thing you can do is make your home and yard much less attractive to these multi-legged creatures.

Here are a few things that you can do before calling for help –

1.  Stomp on them and squish them the second you see them…not easy for everybody.
2.  Vacuum up the remains.
3.  Spray indoor pest spray.

Yes, it’s a band-aid on a gaping wound!  The real solution is call a professional pest exterminator such as A Complete Pest Solution serving most of Chicagoland.  A Complete Pest Solution has been eliminating creepy crawlers once and for all for many years.  At the first sign of millipedes and centipedes in your Chicagoland home call them at (630) 464-1542.
