Typical Urbana Pest Control Problems

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.

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?
