Urbana offers all the perks of an urban area, but with all the comforts and conveniences of a small city. With over 600 acres of parks, there’s plenty of green space to explore and enjoy. Unfortunately, these green spaces create ideal living conditions for pests, who then make their way into homes and yards. Urbana homeowners are faced with wasp problems each summer, and have to be vigilant about keeping their home and family safe from them. In addition, bed bugs are a serious problem in Urbana, and if you see blood smears on your bedding, have irritating bite marks, or smell the distinct rotten raspberry scent of dead bed bugs, you should call a professional immediately. Fox Pest Control is proud to serve the Champaign-Urbana community and we look forward to helping more homeowners live pest free.
Bald-faced hornets, the most common stinging insect in Illinois, are especially troublesome, as they have smooth stingers and can sting repeatedly with little to no effect to themselves. If their nest is disturbed, Bald-faced hornets have a tendency to swarm the attacker, which can have serious consequences for the victim of their attack. Bald-faced hornets are identifiable by their black and yellow striped torso, with their signature white patterned face. If you find a hornet nest in your yard, do not attempt to remove it yourself, as it could be very dangerous.
Unfortunately, the University of Illinois has a dubious reputation of having some bed bug problems each year, and some of these bed bugs find their way into area homes. If you have students at school, make sure to wash their clothing when they arrive home, and regularly wash bedding around the home as a precaution. Bed bugs are hard to spot until you have a full blown infestation, but you should be on the lookout for bite marks, blood smears, droppings, or the rotten raspberry smell of dead bed bugs. If you have a bed bug infestation, call your local exterminator to take care of the problem before it gets worse.
