An ideal location for Chicago commuters, Des Plaines is located less than 20 miles from downtown Chicago and has a wide variety of things to do, away from the bustle of the city. One of the greatest benefits to living in Des Plaines is being just minutes away from O’Hare International Airport and having the ability to hop on the train and be in downtown Chicago in 30 minutes. Besides the daily commuters, the city is home to another kind of traveler. Flying insects. Wasps are most famous for the painful stings that they deliver, and their ability to ruin a summer day
Wasps are also well known for the various nests they build, like the umbrella wasps with their open comb and the bald-faced hornets with their ball-shaped paper nest. Some yellowjackets build colonies underground, inside attics, in soffits, or in wall voids. In extreme cases, wasps have been known to burrow into the house and gain access inside. If wasps are building nests in your home or around your property, call Fox Pest Control immediately. Our Des Plaines Pest Control professionals will remove the nests so you can enjoy all that the summer has to offer in your beautiful Des Plaines home.
Another common pest that Des Plaines homeowners face is rodents. Mice and rats spend most of the year happily outside, but as the cold Illinois winters begin, these rodents begin looking for safe, warm places to live. Your house is the perfect solution, and they will find any crack or hole to sneak in through. This could be cracks in the foundation, a gap from an air conditioning line, or unscreened attic vents. Tree branches and shrubbery near a home creates easy access points for rodents, so make sure to trim these in the early fall. Once they have made their way into your home, mice and rats find secluded areas such as basements, in the walls, or under appliances to set up their home. While seeing a single rodent doesn’t necessarily mean that you have an infestation, try to locate where they may be living and eliminate safe spaces for them. Our Des Plaines pest control professional will be able to quickly locate the source of the problem and eliminate a future full blown 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 Chicago Metro Area.
There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Chicago Metro Area pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience.

During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.

As long as our technicians have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request a treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Chicago Metro Area pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.

There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Chicago Metro Area home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
