Bed Bug Extermination

Bed Bug Extermination

Bedbugs are stubborn little beasts. They are a growing problem in Chicago and across the United States, and experts are unsure of the safest way to go about exterminating these pesky insects. The federal government recently rejected Ohio officials' request to use an industrial pesticide to fight household infestations of bedbugs. Bedbugs can live for up to a year without a meal, but they normally try to feed every five to 10 days. Although they are not known to transmit disease, they are extremely hard to eradicate, depending on the severity of the infestation. Some species of the pesky insects have been shown to have developed a resistance to pesticides.

 

Bee / Wasp Extermination

Termite Extermination

Termite Extermination

Termites feed on wood, and can, therefore, destroy a building in a relatively short amount of time. Because there are so very many of them in a nest, termites can cause constant, consistent damage at all hours of the day and night. The hidden nuances that cause up to $5 billion a year, termites can wreck havoc on your home or business, making the structure completely unstable and making your home or business an unsafe environment. These insects can maintain a single colony up almost 2 million, all constantly working their way through your building's support and structure. Because they work underneath the surface, termites are an issue that is often undetected until too late.

Rodents/Mice Extermination

Rodents/Mice Extermination

We have been a trusted part of Chicago and the surrounding areas for a number of decades, and our reliable and efficient pest control will keep us that way for years to come. We handle almost every kind of pest you can think of: rats and other rodents, flies, moths, bees and most other kinds of insects and arachnids. We excel at what we do, giving both residents and business owners alike the peace of mind of knowing that "the problem is taken care of." Our services are additionally attractive when it comes to rodents, as we use both family and pet-friendly methods.

Carpenter Ant Extermination

Carpenter Ant Extermination

These ants range from dark brown to yellow, and are characterized by their tendency to find moist or wet wood, and pack damp sawdust against it to further and hasten the rot. These ants infest areas near water, like leaky plumbing areas, but are also found in soil, door frames, wood beams, and crawlspaces.

Yard Mole Extermination

Yard Mole Extermination

While they are often confused with rodents such as mice and rats, moles are actually mammalian insectivores and maintain completely different habits and diets than those for which they are often confused. There are several different kinds of moles, with the most common in North America being the eastern mole. Moles are harmless in nature, and only a nuisance to gardeners, those that practice lawn maintenance and both home and business owners, because of the havoc they can wreck on lawn appearance.

Hobo Spider Extermination

Hobo Spider Extermination

Spiders are some of the absolute most aggressive spiders to encounter and are often confused with other kinds of spiders due to their general appearance. They are brown with no markings at all, and can grow to between 11 to 14 mm length, not including legs. The female spider maintains a larger abdomen than the male.

When a client inquires about a professional pest management service, many times the first question is how much the service will cost. However, no two homes or two pest problems are exactly alike nor are two pest control companies exactly the same.

Inexperienced applications of over-the-counter pest control products are usually ineffective and can also be unsafe for pets, children and adults if used improperly. Also, most pests return unless you take steps to prevent them. In as little as 60 days, new infestations can develop.

By the time you make the decision to look into pest management services, you have most likely tried it by yourself. While store-bought solutions can kill some pests, they are not very effective at providing continuous prevention from re-infestation (you've probably found that most pests are relentless). Typical homeowners lack the time and expertise to handle specific pest situations that are encountered in and around your home or office.

Our first priority is the safety of our customers, as well as being good stewards of the environment. "Caring People — Careful Solutions?" means that we take the time to develop a customized pest control program and use strategic targeting, which enables us to use the least amount of pest control product while providing superior results. All materials are EPA approved and all technicians are trained in the safe handling and application of all materials.

All our job applicants are required to pass a series of interviews and background checks (which include criminal and drug tests) before they are even considered for employment. All technicians go through on-the-job training with a highly experienced trainer for the first month. Within the first 75 days, we send them to a registered technician school offered by the state of North Carolina. All of our employees are friendly, professional and know that our first priority is safety.

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER HIRING A PROFESSIONAL?

WHY SHOULD I HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PEST PREVENTION FIRM?

By the time you make the decision to look into pest management services, you have most likely tried it yourself (over-the-counter treatments can kill some pests but are not as effective at providing continuous prevention from re-infestation) and found that most pests are relentless. Most homeowners also lack the time and expertise to handle specific pest situations that are encountered in and around the home or office.

We handle pest removal and bug removal on all

Information for Chicago, Illinois

Chicago, city, seat of Cook county, northeastern Illinois, U.S. With a population hovering near three million, Chicago is the state's largest and the country's third most populous city. In addition, the greater Chicagoland area - which encompasses northeastern Illinois and extends into southeastern Wisconsin and northwestern Indiana - is the country's third largest metropolitan area and the dominant metropolis of the Midwest. Skyline of Chicago at dusk. Digital Vision/Getty ImagesDowntown Chicago. Encyclopaedia Britannica, Inc.Time-lapse video of downtown Chicago. Geoff Tompkinson/GTImage.com (A Britannica Publishing Partner) The original site for Chicago was unremarkable:a small settlement at the mouth of the Chicago River near the southern tip of Lake Michigan. Indeed, a common notion for the origin of the city's name is an Algonquian word for a wild leek (or onion) plant that grew locally. However, Chicago's location at the southwestern end of the vast Great Lakes system could not have been more ideal as the country expanded westward in the 19th century, and perhaps this is reflected in another interpretation of the Native American term as meaning 'strong' or 'great.' Regardless of which derivation is correct, it was soon recognized that the Chicago River formed a critical link in the great waterway that arose mid-century between the Atlantic Ocean and the Mississippi River. With the rise of railways soon thereafter, the young city became the country's railway hub, which helped diversify the city's rapidly growing industrial base. Chicago continued as America's crossroads with the explosive growth of air travel after World War II, which eased the city's transition into a post-industrial economy. Chicago sprawls along the lakeshore and extends inland to meet its suburbs in a ragged line. At its greatest extent, the city is some 25 miles (40 km) from north to south and 15 miles (25 km) from east to west. Area 228 square miles (591 square km). Pop. (2000) 2, 896, 016; Chicago-Joliet-Naperville Metro Division, 7, 628, 412; Chicago-Joliet-Naperville Metro Area, 9, 098, 316; (2010) 2, 695, 598; Chicago-Joliet-Naperville Metro Division, 7, 883, 147; Chicago-Joliet-Naperville Metro Area, 9, 461, 105. Character of the city: A drive across Chicago's lively immigrant neighbourhoods is a trip around the world: the cultures of virtually every country can be found in food stores, restaurants, clothing shops, music and video dealers, places of worship, and street-corner conversations. Chicago's dizzying growth in the 19th century led to a reputation not only for disorder and political corruption but also for creativity in the arts, architecture, and business. The resulting economic opportunities also contributed to the diversity of the city's population. High-rise apartment buildings of the Gold Coast neighbourhood in Chicago. Hisham F. Ibrahim/Getty Images Chicago never fulfilled its dream of becoming the largest American city, but between 1890 and 1982 it was second only to New York City. That fact has contributed much to the city's reputed personality. In the 19th century it had the image of being aggressive and self-promoting, stealing population and businesses from the East. Chicago's 'Windy City' nickname, in fact, came not from lake breezes but from its braggadocio - exhibited most dramatically in the 1890s, when it pushed aside New York and St. Louis, Mo., in the competition to become the site of the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. Poet Carl Sandburg hailed it as the 'city of the big shoulders, ' cunning and cruel, yet creative and strangely attractive. It was the 'toddlin' town' of the 1920s tune, and Frank Sinatra famously proclaimed it 'my kind of town.' New York writer A.J. Liebling belittled its provinciality in a stinging series of magazine articles, collected in the 1952 bookChicago: The Second City. Chicagoans eventually forgot the book, but the adopted epithet stuck. Under the regime of the late mayor Richard J. Daley, efficient municipal services made it the 'city that works.' Chicagoans still like to refer to it as the 'city of neighbourhoods, ' even though that description can carry connotations of segregation by race, ethnicity , and social class. Britannica Stories In The News / GeographyColossal Statue of Ramses II ('Ozymandias') Discovered in CairoDemystified / ScienceIs Climate Change Real?Spotlight / HistoryThe Legacy of Order 9066 and Japanese American InternmentIn The News / ScienceMore Evidence of Neanderthal Lifestyles Few cities evoke as many contrasting pairs of images as Chicago. During the 19th century it was regarded as exceptional for the speed of its growth and the diversity of its population, yet its interior location supposedly made it a much more 'typically American' city than New York. One-third of Chicago lay in ashes in the wake of the Great Fire of 1871, but it was rebuilt in record speed during the onset of an economic depression. It was the city of the humble immigrant and the new millionaire, the home of brazen criminals such as Al Capone and of great humanitarians such as settlement-house pioneer Jane Addams and child-welfare crusader Lucy Flower. There were raucous saloons under the watchful eye of temperance leader Frances Willard. Fetid wooden slums and horrific public housing high-rises have coexisted cheek by jowl with a uniquely innovative architectural tradition and the beautiful Gold Coast lakefront neighbourhood just north of the river. Chicago traditionally has been a shot-and-a-beer town whose best-known culinary inventions include a deep-dish pizza and a hot dog elaborately overloaded with garnishes. At the same time, it has long enjoyed a reputation for cutting-edge innovationin the arts, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra has maintained a high level of international renown. Test Your Knowledge: A Hole in One - Chicago has been a stranger's town throughout its history. Its position as a hub for rail and air travel has always meant that at any one time a large portion of the people in the city are out-of-towners. Over the years its location has fostered a lively convention trade - a fact that has led hundreds of organizations and corporations to call it home. As the metropolis of the country's midsection, from the southern Great Plains to Canada and as far west as the Rocky Mountains, Chicago ranks among the country's top tourist destinations. On any given day, the parking lots of its museums are filled with cars from dozens of surrounding states, while its varied retailers and wholesalers have long been an interstate and international magnet for shoppers. Landscape: Chicago lies mainly on a relatively flat glacial plain - on what was once the bottom of Lake Chicago (the precursor of Lake Michigan) - averaging between 579 and 600 feet (176 and 183 metres) above sea level. Much of the site remained swampy, only a few feet above the lake level, before the central part of the city was filled in during the 19th century. Chicago is divided roughly into thirds by the North and South branches of the Chicago River, which join together about 1 mile (1.6 km) west of the lake. The original meandering river mouth was straightened soon after the town's founding, while a mile-long bend on the South Branch was eliminated to accommodate maritime traffic. A second important body of water, Lake Calumet, is located in the industrial southeastern part of the city; it is connected to the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal by the Calumet Sag (Cal-Sag) Channel and to Lake Michigan by the Calumet River. The Wrigley Building (left) and Tribune Tower (right centre) rise above the Chicago River in � Downtown Chicago occupies the area between the lakeshore and the northern end of the South Branch and extends south from the river for a mile or so. Within this is the Loop, named in the 1880s for the square of blocks originally enclosed by streetcar tracks and now generally defined by the elevated tracks of the rapid-transit system. The Loop and theadjacentNorth Michigan Avenue corridor stretching north along the lakefront form the commercial and financial heart of the city.ClimateChicagoans have a pair of oldadagesabout the local climate. The first - 'If you don't like the weather, wait an hour and it will change' - may have something to do with the fact that temperature and precipitation, borne by prairie winds from Iowa or Minnesota, routinely collide with conditions generated by Lake Michigan to produce abrupt weather alterations. The second - 'There are two seasons in Chicago: Christmas and the Fourth of July' - refers to the sometimes stark extremes in the weather. About 50 F (28 C) separate the January average of 28 F (-2 C) and the July average of 75 F (24 C). The average annual precipitation is 35 inches (900 mm).

The expansive Chicago region, however, is large enough to see simultaneous double-digit differences in temperature. Although city pavements are known to absorb and radiate enough heat to affect local meteorological patterns, the lake often provides a moderating influence, slightly warming the areas near it in winter, cooling them in summer, and generating occasional lake-effect showers and snowfalls.City layoutChicago presents a different face in each direction. One of the city's most attractive features is its miles of well-used parks and other public facilities along the lakeshore. Other parts of the city can be dismal. Sporadic industrial buildings, many of them abandoned, line the railroad routes and river branches that radiate out from the centre. The industrial landscape of the southeast portion of the city dominates the vista from the east. The western and northern approaches to Chicago present a vast expanse of tree-lined residential neighbourhoods, leading to a dramatic skyline of towering office, hotel, and apartment buildings that are concentrated downtown and along the lake. Chicago skyline at night. rabbit75_fot/Fotolia Thousands of tourists come each year just to view the architecture. The reconstruction of the city after the Great Fire of 1871 initiated a pattern of building innovation that expanded in the late 1880s with a wave of new office structures that were dubbedskyscrapers , a term reputedly coined in Chicago but which New York also claims. The steel frames of skyscrapers removed height limitations previously imposed by solid load-bearing masonry walls and allowed the use of large expanses of glass, terra-cotta facing, and other types of curtain walls. A generation of 1920s-era Art Deco office towers may be found principally in the LaSalle Street financial district, while the influence of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, the German-born Chicago architect of great worldwide influence, can be seen in the 1950s - 80s generation of International-style buildings. Scores of major structures have been constructed since the early 1970s.

Ants - General Information

Moisture Ants

These ants range from dark brown to yellow, and are characterized by their tendency to find moist or wet wood, and pack damp sawdust against it to further and hasten the rot. These ants infest areas near water, like leaky plumbing areas, but are also found in soil, door frames, wood beams, and crawlspaces.

Odors House Ants

Also known as coconut or sugar ants, partly due to the smell produced by their anal glands and partly because of their attraction to sugar itself, these ants are black or brown and are anywhere between 2.5 and 3.5mm long. These ants should not be sprayed as a method of removal, as their colonies contain up to 200 queens and can easily split into many nests, making total elimination nearly impossible.

Carpenter Ants

Carpenter ants exist only to break down decaying wood so that it can be decomposed back into ground matter more easily. By hollowing out wood and assisting natural processed, carpenter ants are also provided with a safe place to call home. In an effort to maintain the necessary natural balance, carpenter ants create several colonies within an area, so that they are less likely to be eliminated. If a colony of carpenter ants happens to enter your home, call a professional immediately, to be sure your building does not lose its structure and come crashing down on you.

Dim Eyesight Means Impeccable Scent

Carpenter ants maintain an incredible sense of smell, as they are close to completely blind. Similar in many ways to bees, carpenter ant queens also lay eggs, and worker ants seek resources for the colony like food and water. Scouts also search for possible places to colonize as far as 300 feet in every direction, leaving behind a pheromone trail so that other ants will be able to locate the possible places later. These 'ant trails' are strong enough to bear the elements, including harsh snow and rain.

Jaw Strength to Impress a Shark

The tunnels carpenter ants are known for are created by their incredibly strong jaws. The smooth tunnels they make are designated for their eggs and made through absolutely any kind of wood available to them at the time. Home is wherever the wood may be to carpenter ants.

Used to living in tree stumps and damp bark, carpenter ants will jump at the opportunity to live inside your warm and comfortable walls, never to be rained on again. Carpenter ants are not in any way picky, so watch out for them not only in your walls - but also floors, ceilings, doorways and even the doors themselves.

Though ants can be sneaky and only show themselves on rare occasions, seeing only one ant could mean thousands more are residing right inside your walls. Chewing through your support beams while you chew on your morning toast, carpenter ants are the hidden destruction that happens in the protection of dark walls. Unfortunately for your home, seeing a carpenter ant usually means they are already well established in your home with you.

Our Solution

Because of the very nature of carpenter ants to survive, you will need a professional, all-out attack on the colony, and we are the best resource you could call to help your ambush succeed. Our technicians are the best anti-ant professionals in the entire the area, and our methods will ensure your home is ant free once completed.

Here, we believe that simply destroying the colony inside your home is only a fraction of the job, as pheromone trails still exist all around your house or building, leading right back to it. To help eliminate the risk of more ants coming into the facility, we have designed a comprehensive ant control program, to discourage any re-infestations.

Because we understand the dangers of chemical usage even to discourage ant activity, we use only EPA approved materials with a 30-day lifespan, which protects both your and your pets from any damage while eliminating your ant problem.

We maintain an absolute 100% ant-free guarantee, which is significant considering how much those pheromone trails can withstand. When you call us, you are ensuring your ant problem will be eliminated, and stay that way for good.

We Proudly Serve the State.
