Typical Bloomington Pest Control Problems

A vibrant city with a historic downtown and a booming agricultural region surrounding city limits, Bloomington is a great place to live and work. 

Our Bloomington exterminators are kept busy year round. Residents often see an increase of nuisance pests in the warmer months. The need to control wasps, termites, mosquitos, and roaches peaks in the summer. As temperatures drop in the fall and winter, Bloomington pest control picks up again as rodent infestations start to become a problem. As a homeowner, you would need to get rid of mice because they are able to squeeze through small cracks (¼-inch in diameter) at any level of your home. Keep an eye out for rodent droppings as that is a tell-tale sign of an infestation. Rodents can be hazardous to homeowners as they can transfer life threatening diseases and can cause serious damage to the home.

Ants are a problem in the area as well. To avoid household ants and carpenter ants, keep tree branches and other loose materials at least a few feet from your home. Keeping your kitchen clean is helpful, as well as repairing any leaky pipes or faucets. 

Carpenter ants are a serious problem in the summer in Bloomington, as they can cause serious structural damage from their tunneling. Carpenter ants often seemingly appear out of nowhere in the spring, but it is likely that they were dormant in your home all winter, and are once again looking for food and water. As long as your home can provide them with these necessities, carpenter ants will be very difficult to get rid of. For signs of a carpenter ant infestation, check for piles of wood shavings near baseboards, or scratching noises coming from the walls of your home. 

Besides these pests, other common Bloomington pests include mosquitoes, wasps, bed bugs, boxelder bugs and termites. All of these pests can create serious problems in and around your home, and sometimes taking care of them yourself can be extremely difficult. Thankfully, Fox Pest Control is here to help clear up your pests problems so that you can live worry free. Give us a call today and let us know how we can help, and we will send one of our Bloomington pest control technicians out to your home to assess your needs and create a custom plan just for you and your situation.

Our Connection to Bloomington

We at Fox Pest Control are proud of our membership in the McLean County Chamber of Commerce, headquartered in Bloomington, because we believe in being a part of the communities in which we live and work. Our Fox Pest Control team also has a deep connection to Bloomington. Our Technician Adam Lucas was born in Greenville and now lives in McLean. Adam served nine years in the Illinois Army National Guard. He understands what area homeowners are up against when it comes to controlling pests. Adam and his wife just purchased a house and are busy getting settled. When he’s not smoking meats at home, he’ll be driving their ‘86 Mustang on the country roads around, or going to Biaggi’s for a bite. Adam says they spend a lot of their leisure time either at the Miller Park Zoo, or going go-karting at Grady’s. Adam says he and his teammates, “Are up to tackle the pest problems the people of Bloomington are dealing with. We want our customers to enjoy their homes and yards year round.”

Fox Pest Control’s Pest Exterminator Service

Pests come in all shapes and sizes. From ants in your kitchen, to termites in your foundation, bug infestations are an inevitable part of homeownership in Bloomington. Some bugs are just a nuisance, like silverfish or crickets which like dark damp places. Other pests like termites or rodents are cause for concern as they cause property damage and can carry disease. Whatever the pest problem you might have in Bloomington, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Bloomington pest might be bothering you.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

You might already know you have a pest problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination look for in Bloomington. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Bloomington is simply by observing it. It could be a mouse in your house, cockroaches skittering when you turn on the lights, or a swarm of hornets around a nest. In any case, it’s time to get rid of pests!
  • Signs of activity. Pests are adept at hiding from us, so you won’t always spot them. Instead, you might notice signs of their presence such as rodent droppings or small piles of “saw dust”  resulting from termite or carpenter ant activity.

What You Need to Know About Pests

  • Pests come in a large variety. In Bloomington, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • Pests find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping.  It’s important to get help from a professional exterminator because, depending on the species, they may create nests, contaminate food and water in your kitchen and bathroom, or cause damage to the inside of walls, electrical wiring, or other parts of the house.
  • While some pests can cause home damage, many carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. You must control mosquitoes and rodents as they are the most notorious for this.
  • Spiders and wasps are famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

Helpful Bloomington Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
  • Store all food in airtight containers. 
  • Never leave food (including pet food) outside.
  • Clear all debris, tools, garbage.

How To Get Rid Of Ants | Fox Pest Control

Is a trail of ants marching across your countertop,
or setting up camp in your cupboard?

Don't worry — we've got a solution!

Ants are masters of sneaking into your home through unsealed gaps in your cement, brick or siding.

They can also slip in through open gaps around windows or door frames.

If you've got food or moisture available, they'll come crawling.

Most ants are harmless.

But some, like fire ants, bite and sting.

Other types of ants build huge mounds that can tear up your lawn.

Carpenter ants can burrow into your wood,
causing major damage to window and door frames, or even the structure of your home.

If you see ants, call us.

We'll come that same day to solve your pest problem!

Our licensed, certified technicians know how to get the job done right.

Your Fox Pest Pro will thoroughly inspect your home,
and then create a customized plan to get rid of those pesky ants for good.

After the treatment, we'll send you a detailed report of what we did,
along with helpful suggestions for how to keep the ants outside where they belong.

We follow up with regular inspections,
carefully checking for any potential trouble spots.

If ants return, simply give us a call,
we'll come back for free!

Our service is 100% guaranteed.
