The population in Buffalo Grove has seen a huge increase. There are now upwards of 41,000 people living here. Because of the growth, Buffalo Grove continues to annex new plots of land to make new homes. This is very similar to what ants do. They burrow into whatever they can find and spread out to make more room for their growing colony. These ants are good for the environment but they are bad for your house. Carpenter ants burrow in the wood and do structural damage to the home. If you aren’t careful, you could find yourself with an thriving ant colony feasting on your home every night.

Army of Menaces

There are various types of ants in Buffalo Grove. There are smaller sugar ants that you see near scraps of food. True to the name, these small scavengers love sweet foods. They make colonies in small cracks in your house close to food sources. Most ant activity is at night when you don’t see them. If you do see daytime activity, it means a colony is close by.
However, the ones you should really worry about are the bigger black ants. Carpenter ants are a major problem in Buffalo Grove. These ants chew through wood to build galleries for their eggs. Once carpenter ants are established in the wall voids and wood in your deck, they are tough to combat.
Apart from the damage they cause, other ants can leave behind unpleasant odors. They can also make colonies in valuable appliances like A/C units.

Understanding the Seasons

Weather has a profound effect on pest life cycle. Most pests, rodents and insects breed aggressively during spring and go through periods of hibernation during autumn and winter.

When the weather slowly begins to heat up, pests start to get more active after having stayed dormant over the colder winter months.

  • Birds often start to find mates and start building their nests.
  • Moths which consumer leaves usually become active again.
  • Flies often emerge from their winter hibernation places and start to breed and spread out.
  • Squirrels also spend the winter in hibernation. When spring approaches these creatures start looking for a new home. This is usually the time when they make their way into lofts and other spaces.

Summer is arguably the best season for pests. It is the time when they are in full swing and breed as rapidly as they can. Wasps are one of the most common summer pests followed by flies and rodents. Many a summer picnics and BBQs have been ruined by the ‘home invasion’ of these pests.

  • Wasps build their nesting grounds and lay their eggs during this time. Although the creatures are not directly harmful, they can be very aggressive and territorial at this time of the year, because they’re at their strongest.
  • The number of fleas also multiplies. Since pets spend more time outdoors during summer, they are more likely to bring the pests back indoors with them.
  • Bees are also more active during summer as they go out to gather nectar. Many times, homeowners find a new beehive in their garden and require pest control to take care of it. Because of their sting, bees are more dangerous than some of the other pests and you should call our professional service to get rid of them.
  • Moths and flies usually start to multiply significantly during summer.
  • Ants begin to swarm to find new mates and start new colonies during summer.
  • Cockroaches become very noticeable in the summer, especially in the kitchen and toilets. This is due to the hotter temperatures and stronger smells.
  • Bedbugs are also very active in the summer.

Autumn is the month when things start to get cooler. The number of pests starts to dwindle as they begin to slow down their breeding activities.

  • Wasps start becoming dozy and docile. You may find them buzzing around occasionally as if they are drunk. This is usually the end-time for their life.
  • Spiders in particular are more active at this time of the year.
  • Squirrels will gather their food and start to look for shelter.
  • The second breeding phase for flies begins. These pests remain active during the season.
  • Rodents also become more active. Due to the approaching cold, rodents usually find shelter inside homes in the loft or inside walls.

The coldest months are when pests seek out warmth and shelter. You will find a number of insects especially rodents and lizards make their way inside your home.

  • Spiders come into our homes to escape the web-destroying frosts.
  • Rodents move indoors to escape the cold, increasing infestations.
  • In many cases, homeowners find squirrels nesting in lofts when they go to get their Christmas decorations.
