Typical Peoria Pest Control Problems

Located on the banks of the Illinois River, Peoria offers a variety of options for nature lovers, from Wildlife Prairie park to Forest Park Nature Center and more! Like most of the Midwest, Peoria residents often see wasps, ants, roaches, and termites near their homes. With the city’s proximity to the Illinois River, mosquitoes can be an especially troublesome pest for folks here. To avoid these issues, it’s important to eliminate as much standing water on your property as possible. You should also keep tree branches and other loose materials at least a few feet from your home. As temperatures lower in winter, Peoria pest control takes care of rodent infestations in homes. Fox Pest Control is proud to serve the Peoria area, and we’re always just a phone call away with help.

As temperatures lower in winter, Peoria pest control takes care of rodent infestations in homes. Rodents enter homes before the cold Illinois winters, looking for food, water and shelter. Eliminating food and water sources easily accessible to them can go a long way in preventing a full blown infestation. Food should be stored in sealed containers, and on shelves. Any standing water in the home is adequate moisture for rodents, as are leaky pipes and faucets. Remove standing water and leaks, and you will reduce the chances of rodents moving in. If rodents do decide to set up shop in your home, they often choose low traffic areas, meaning you can go a couple weeks without knowing that you have an infestation. 

Fox Pest Control is proud to serve the Peoria area, and we’re always just a phone call away with help. No matter what pest problems you’re experiencing, Fox is here to help. Give us a call today and let us know what pest problems you’re experiencing, and we will send out a certified Peoria pest control technician right away. Our technician will assess your situation, and create a customized plan to efficiently and effectively get rid of any infestations you may be experiencing.

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.

Why not have one less thing to worry about?
