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.

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.
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.”
