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

Cantigny Park in Wheaton is home to acres of land that was once home to Robert R. McCormick. Throughout the years, the land has become a hidden gem and there has been a spike in visitors. Similar to the park, if ants find a land they enjoy, more of them will come to grow their colony.

It is very common for ants to invade a person’s home since the house provides all the wood they need to build their own homes. A queen ant is able to produce thousands of new ants in her 25-year life span. Before you know it, all those ants will be living rent-free in your own home. Wheaton ant control experts at Pointe Pest Control can get rid of them so that you can rest easy.

Ants Come Marching

The most popular ants in Wheaton are carpenter ants, which are large and black. They prefer chewing through dead and damp wood to build their nests. You may even notice an unpleasant smell as their colonies increase. Carpenter ants also have more than one satellite and will travel inside and outside of your home creating gateways through your walls, which may result in severe damage.

They don’t eat the wood they break down; instead they prefer eating dead insects that is a high source of protein and sugar. The life span of a carpenter ant is approximately 6-12 weeks. However, Wheaton’s cold winter seems to be a way for them to live a little longer and could survive for up to ten months. Our pest technicians are the best for Wheaton ant control and will be happy to service you.

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.
