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.
