Elgin, IL Ant Control Services

A Clean and Pest Free Home in Elgin is just a call away..

Elgin, Illinois experienced a dwindling economy in the 1980’s, but in 1994 when the Grand Riverboat Casino opened, the city was rejuvenated and refreshed by the new influx of business and revenue. Jobs appeared and people started marching to the casino for entertainment and gambling in droves. Though Elgin appreciated this progression of business, no one welcomes a colony of ants marching through their kitchen in a military fashion. You are the one that should be in control.

Let’s Identify Your Pest Problem

Headache of ants

Ants can scout out the tiniest of cracks and crevices to get into your home. They seek water and sweet or greasy food. Any crumbs left out is like ringing the dinner bell for them. As they move, ants leave a scent trail, which contains invisible pheromones for other ants to follow that basically say, “Hey friends, there’s a smorgasbord over here!” Soon your kitchen or pantry will be swarmed with thousands of ants scrambling to get into any container, bag, or box to gorge themselves.

Home Sweet Home

Ants can nest just about anywhere in or around your house. They love walls, under floorboards, stumps, lawns, or even under foundations. Colonies can be anywhere from 300,000 to 500,000 and can quickly relocate if they feel threatened. You can try spraying for them, but it may just scatter them to another area of your house. Or maybe you think the colony will just die off and eventually go away. That isn’t likely since a queen can live as long as 15 years and a worker ant as much as 7 years. You do NOT want to wait out the death of a colony.

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.
