Rockford is located right on the bank of the Rock river. The Rock river also meets one of its largest tributaries, the Kishwaukee river, within the city limits. Much of the length of the Kishwaukee has been developed into forest preserves, helping further reinforce Rockford’s reputation as “The Forest City.” Between its access to shoreline and its mature forests, Rockford retains a naturalistic charm, despite its urban convenience and population.
Of course, along with the natural splendor of Rockford’s many rivers and forests… come the pests. Fortunately, you don’t need to worry about those pests; you just need to call Plunkett’s Pest Control. Plunkett’s has been helping Rockford and the rest of the Winnebago county with pest infestations of all sizes and severity for a long time.

Pest Problems in Rockford
Waterborne pests like mosquitoes and cockroaches love cities near water because they provide breeding grounds and convenient food. Forest-dwelling pests like ticks, termites, ants, and spiders love cities near parks and woods because they have shelter… and food. Rockford is a prime destination for all of these pests. Here are some of the most common pests plaguing Rockford, and what Plunkett’s can do about each of them:
Mosquitoes: Mosquitoes breed in sources of standing water before they move in-land for food. Plunkett’s offers one-time or ongoing, seasonal mosquito treatment programs that remove mosquitoes and keep them from coming back.
Cockroaches: Roaches take shelter in dark, secluded, and humid environments. They gravitate toward water before heading in-land. Plunkett’s roach treatment programs eliminate 75% of roaches in one week and 100% within six.
Ticks: Ticks hunt, or “quest” near any footpath or yard where they think they’ll be able to find prey. They’re particularly common in heavily forested or green areas. Plunkett’s can find and remove tick infestations, and make sure they can’t come near you again.
