A key western suburb of Chicago, Elmhurst is densely populated. It features several parks including Berens Park, Salt Creek Park, Plunkett Park, and the Wilder Park Conservatory. These green spaces, coupled with the high humidity of the summer months, creates an environment that pests flourish in. These pests include ticks and fleas, who can latch on to passing mammals, such as your dog, and follow you home.
While most wood ticks simply have a blood meal until they fall off, deer ticks are a serious problem, particularly in the midwest. Elmhurst homeowners should regularly check pets and children for deer ticks, or the red bullseye that can form after a bite. Not only are these parasitic pests a nuisance, they also can transfer life threatening Lyme’s Disease. Each year, according to the CDC approximately 476,000 cases of Lyme’s Disease are reported throughout the United States, and this doesn’t include pets. Symptoms of Lyme’s Disease vary by case, but typically include fever, chills, headache, and muscle aches. The red bullseye from a bite typically begins at the site an average of 7 days after the bite occurred, and sometimes not at all. Because they are so difficult to detect, it is important to continually check for ticks after spending time in wooded areas.
During the winter, rodents become a significant issue for the citizens of Elmhurst. During their search for shelter from the cold and a source of food and water, rats and mice find their way into homes to bunker down for the winter. They squeeze their way through the smallest gaps and cracks of even the most well-built homes and business facilities. During the day, rats and mice normally find places to hide until nightfall when they raid food containers, gnaw on walls and the corners of doors, chew on electrical wiring, and contaminate food. They can even carry diseases like leptospirosis, hantavirus, and the bubonic plague. Rodents can also carry ticks and fleas indoors, which causes a whole other infestation..
