Typical Elmhurst Pest Control Problems

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.. 

If you notice rodents, ticks, or fleas in your home, it’s important to get professional help. Call Fox Pest Control. We’ll send one of our licensed Elmhurst pest control exterminators out to your home the same day.

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 Glen Ellyn Area. 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 Glen Ellyn Area, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Glen Ellyn Area 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 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. 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 Glen Ellyn Area Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
