Chicago Pest Problems and Solutions
Chicago is a major pest destination for several reasons. First, there’s Lake Michigan: waterborne pests build their nests on sources of water and then head in-land for food. Next, there’s all the traveling. O’Hare International is one of the busiest airports in the US. Tourists and other travellers tend to bring all kinds of pest problems with them. Here are some of the worst pest problems in Chicago, and how we can deal with them:
Bed Bugs: Bed bugs spread from place to place by hitchhiking on unsuspecting travelers’ boxes, bags, and sheets. Plunkett’s K9 inspection teams find bed bug infestations with 97% accuracy, and our heat treatments wipe them out completely.
Rodents: Rats and mice invade cities to find food and shelter. They sneak through tiny access points around doors, windows, and baseboarding. Plunkett’s can remove rodent infestations while locating and sealing off the access points they use to get inside.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches breed near humidity and water, then make their way toward consistent food sources and shelter. Plunkett’s cockroach control program will eliminate 75% of roaches from a structure in one week, and 100% within six.
Flies: Flies are attracted to sources of standing water, garbage, sweet liquids, and fermenting organic material. They can nest nearly anywhere around water. Plunkett’s can find and remove fly nests from your structure and make sure they don’t come back.
