Typical Rockford Pest Control Problems

Originally called Forest City by early settlers, Rockford has grown in size, but never lost its lush greenery. With over 7,000 acres of parkland, public gardens and tree lined streets, Rockford residents truly get a big city feel while being surrounded by nature. The only downside to all of this greenery is the pests that come with it. Each spring mosquitoes hatch out of the Rock River and make their way into parks and yards. Mosquitoes can pose a serious threat to Rockford homeowners as they are known to carry diseases such as Zika Virus, Malaria and Dengue Fever. 

Rockford winters bring cold weather, and a threat of rodent infestations. As the temperature drops, mice and rats begin looking for warm places to spend the winter, and your home is an ideal location. Homeowners should be vigilant to seal any possible entry points around the outside of the home, this could include cracks in the foundation, loose air conditioning lines, or an open garage door. If you have a pest infestation in or around your home, you should call Fox Pest Control, and one of our expert Rockford pest control technicians will be able to quickly take care of the problem for you.

Our Connection to Rockford

For Fox Pest Pro Killian Hoffmann, pest control is a family business, her brother Hunter works at our Chicago branch as well! Killian lives in Woodstock, but commutes to Rockford to help customers a few times a week. She loves working in Rockford, and enjoys the beautiful scenery and elegant homes. Her favorite part of working in Rockford is the chance to see the Rock River flowing just a few feet away while servicing area homes. There’s never a dull moment in pest control Killian says, and she once helped a Rockford area customer catch a pet chicken that had flown the coop!

Fox strives to be involved in the communities we serve, on top of eliminating area pests. In the Rockford community, we are proud sponsors of the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation, a Rockford based organization that supports young adults, ages 18-24 who are fighting cancer. The foundation believes that this a time in young adults lives where they should be making friends, focusing on school, or pursuing a career. Unfortunately, this opportunity is often taken from cancer patients, who instead spend much of their time in treatment at children’s hospitals. While they may not be able to get all of these opportunities back, the foundation helps these brave young adults by providing them with a Nik’s Wish Grant, giving them the opportunity to have awesome experiences and create lasting memories with those they care about most. These young men and women embody everything that Fox stands for, especially our core values of Relationships First, Family, and Courage. 

Another organization that we are proud to be a part of is the Swedish Historical Society of Rockford. Established in 1938, the society was organized exclusively for historical, educational and charitable purposes. They strive for the preservation of Swedish-American history and how the culture has become part of the Rockford community. The cultural centerpiece in Rockford is the Erlander Home Museum, built in 1871 and kept in good condition to this day. The museum features historic furniture and artifacts from Sweden and Swedish immigrants. Fox Pest Control is always looking for more ways to get involved in the communities that we work and live in.

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.

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.
