Summer comes each year with the promise of warm weather, sunshine, fun, and as always, mosquitoes. These pests can take over your yard and multiply quickly. They lay 100 eggs at a time, oftentimes in standing water. When biting, mosquitoes can drink up to 3 times their body weight in blood. Their primary food source is glucose, which is found in high levels in our blood. Not only do these bites hurt, they can be quite harmful. Because they carry diseases, mosquitoes are considered the world’s deadliest animals. Through Malaria, Zika and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year. Fox Pest Control knows how to control your Chicago Metro Area mosquito problem and exterminate them quickly.
You might already know for sure that you have a mosquito problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mosquito infestation in Chicago Metro Area.
One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.
Even before they’re seen, mosquitoes can bite and fly away before you know what happened. A bite is often itchy and may raise a small red bump on the skin.

Of the more than 3,500 species, only a couple hundred will actually bite humans … and then it’s only the females. Despite that, there are plenty of female mosquitoes around in Chicago Metro Area, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.
Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water.
Mosquitoes love cool, moist environments … and they hate the heat. The best to be outside while also avoiding mosquitoes is in the heat of the day. If you do see mosquitoes, they will most likely be in bushes or flower beds.(Or you could call Fox Pest Control in Chicago Metro Area to help you get rid of mosquitoes.)
When a female mosquito bites you, it injects an anticoagulant within its saliva that, while helping the blood flow, also creates an allergic response in most humans.
Yes they can be. Even in Chicago Metro Area mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:
Mosquitoes are primarily a prey insect, serving as a food source for many bats and birds. In addition, mosquitoes are pollinators. While they don't pollinate on the same level as bees, they feed on flower nectar to get glucose, and transfer this from flower to flower.
Had same-day help with a terrible and aggressive wasp nest. Professional, quick, and did an excellent job preventing the wasps from moving into other areas around the property. Wonderful!
Fox Pest Control is Outstanding! We were using Terminix for several years. They were friendly and okay, but they were not getting the job done. That is, each Winter we still had mice problems in the basement. Then, we brought in Fox Pest Control. What a difference!!! The technicians were also friendly. However, the results were excellent. We have never looked back. Right away, the Fox technicians located the infiltration locations of the mice. Fox is our pest control company. Oh, since Technician Robby is the face" of Fox Pest Control he makes the entire company a stellar organization. He even treated the base of our mature trees against ants."
I had Eric Peterson at my home yesterday. I had so many wasps around my eaves and even a hornet nest in my front yard. ALL of them are now gone! I can garden in peace again without worry of being stung! He made a world of difference for me.
Our initial inspection visit was with the technician Xavier. He was courteious, informed and thorough. He was also on time and very sensitive to making sure he wore his mask (we are in the middle of the Covid pandemic) and gloves. He came back, at our request, to perform the initial services and overall we were very pleased. Looking forward to working with them as we signed a one-year service agreement.
On time very professional does their work they always ask if I need anything more always very polite
Oscar visited our property today and was very professional. He went above and beyond to look for yellow jackets that were getting into our home via a tiny opening. He dusted and sprayed and setup a followup visit for 3 days from now. Great company!!!
