Typical Elk Grove Village Pest Control Problems

Home to O’Hare International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the country, Elk Grove Village is one of very few planned communities in the area. The Village is bordered on the north by the Busse Woods, a 3,558 acre nature preserve. This close proximity to nature is a rarity in the Chicago area, making Elk Grove Village an ideal location to live. Unfortunately, the preserve also creates the right conditions for plenty of summer-time pests like mosquitoes, wasps, and other flying insects. Mosquitoes are a particularly large problem for Elk Grove Village homeowners, as they invade backyards and ruin summer evenings.

In addition to being an irritating pest, mosquitoes can be a serious health concern as they have been known to carry many diseases. Malaria, West Nile Virus and Zika Virus are just a few that have life threatening implications. While malaria rarely originates in the United States, there are over 2,000 cases reported annually, and if any of these already infected individuals are bitten by a mosquito, the disease could spread rapidly throughout the area.  

Elk Grove Village pest control picks up again when the temperatures drop in the fall and winter as rodents begin to infest homes in search of food and shelter. Mice and rats are able to squeeze through small spaces to get into your home, and checking the perimeter of your home for any gaps or cracks can go a long way in preventing a rodent infestation in your Elk Grove Village home this winter. Older homes are especially susceptible to rodent infestations, where they can get into basements and crawl spaces easily. There’s plenty for Elk Grove-area homeowners to be concerned with. This is where Fox Pest Control can help. Our team of licensed Elk Grove pest control technicians know exactly what to do to keep you and your family pest free.

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 Glen Ellyn Area. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Glen Ellyn Area 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 Glen Ellyn Area, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • Pests find their way in through any open, unsealed space.

  • 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.

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.
