Typical Schaumburg Pest Control Problems

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 in 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 Schaumburg homeowners, 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 a blood meal from a person or animal. The disease starts as a germ, that then infects the body and moves into the salivary glands. After this time, any person or animal that they bite can get infected by the disease. Schaumburg homeowners 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 are able to assess your problems, listen to your concerns, and even uncover problems you may have not been aware of previously.

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.

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,

We follow up with regular inspections,
carefully checking for any potential trouble spots.
