Typical Normal Pest Control Problems

The Bloomington-Normal metropolitan area is booming with commerce and industry. This helps keep commutes short for local homeowners and there’s never a shortage of things to do. When at home, Normal residents are under constant attack from flying insects and rodents. Mosquitoes constantly create headaches, plaguing backyards and patios all summer long. The humidity and consistent rainfall create ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed and lay eggs. To help prevent this, dump out any standing water in your yard, as mosquitoes can lay eggs in a bottle cap worth of water.

While mosquito bites are irritating, they’re nothing compared to the sting of the bald-faced hornet. The most common stinging insect in Illinois, bald-faced hornets can be extremely dangerous. With their smooth stinger, they can sting repeatedly with no harm to themselves, and if their nest is threatened they will swarm, causing sometimes severe reactions from their victims. With a black and yellow banded bodies, bald-faced hornets are identifiable from other wasps due to the white pattern on their face, from which they get their name. If you can avoid bothering them, bald-faced hornets eat many small bugs and insects, effectively providing their own exterminator service. While this is one option, we recommend hiring pest control experts to take care of both problems at once. 

In the winter, Normal homeowners are faced with rodents trying to escape the snow and move inside. Any small cracks in the foundation or gaps near windows and doors are large enough for mice and rats to sneak through. Once in your home, rodents will find low traffic areas, such as your basement, to live. Because of this, you could have a mouse infestation in your Normal home for weeks without knowing. Keep an eye out for gnaw marks, droppings, or the odor of urine in your home as these may be signs of a rodent infestation. 

There’s no shortage of pest problems facing Normal area homeowners, but thankfully Fox Pest Control is here to help. Our team of Normal pest control pros knows how to handle any pest problem or insect issue you may be having. Give us a call today, let us know what we can do to help, and we will send one of our expert technicians to your home to assess your needs. They will then create a custom plan fitted to your home and situation to effectively and efficiently get rid of any pest problems.

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.

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.
