Typical Schaumburg Pest Control Problems

 Fox pest control schaumburg pest control

Located just 30 miles from Chicago, Schaumburg is a beautiful village and community that has grown quickly from a small farming town into a thriving economic center, and boasts more businesses than any other community in Illinois outside of Chicago. As the population of Schaumburg has grown, so has the threat from pests. The rich soil that remains from the farms of the past creates ideal housing conditions for ants. The most common types of ants near Schaumburg include odorous house ants, pavement ants, pharaoh ants, and carpenter ants. While any of these ants can create enormous colonies near your home, none of these are as damaging as carpenter ants. 

Unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t eat wood; instead, they use their large jaws to carve tunnels and galleries through it. Carpenter ants are especially attracted to wet and damaged wood, but like most pests, they aren’t picky and will chew through dry wood as well.

To the dismay of homeowners near Schaumburg, carpenter ant colonies can live undetected in homes for several years, creating serious damage. If you spot even a single carpenter ant in your Schaumburg home, you should call Fox Pest Control immediately. 

Due to the humid Illinois climate, Schaumburg mosquitoes can cause serious problems for homeowners. Each spring, mosquitoes hatch out of the lakes and ponds in town and move into backyards to terrorize summer days and barbecues. Schaumburg exterminators know the dangers of mosquitoes, and the diseases they can transfer. Zika Virus, Malaria and West Nile Virus can all have serious, and sometimes fatal, implications. 

Mosquitoes can become infected by these diseases by taking blood from a person or animal. The disease starts as a germ, that then infects the body and moves into the salivary glands. Once it has moved into the salivary glands, any person or animal that they bite can be infected by the disease. Homeowners near Schaumburg should be cautious during the summer months to avoid mosquitoes and if bitten, flu-like symptoms could be a sign of malaria, Zika or West Nile virus. Our Schaumburg pest control pros know what to do in these situations, and can take care of any pest problems you may be having, whether it’s ants, mosquitoes, or any of the other pests that terrorize homes in the area. 

If you are experiencing any pest problems at your Schaumburg home, Fox Pest Control is here to help. Our team of certified technicians is able to assess your problems, listen to your concerns, and even uncover problems you may have not been aware of previously.

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.
