Lady Bug Pest Control in Chicago
Multi-colored Asian Beetles/Japanese Lady Bird Beetles/Lady Bugs, Spiders, Centipedes, Millipedes, Crickets, Sowbugs, Pillbugs, Earwigs, Ground Beetles, Clover Mites, and Box Elder Bugs are invading arthropods commonly found in the Greater Chicago Area. They are all pests that begin their lives outside, but invade your living space when they become unsatisfied with their surroundings. Environmental conditions, the mass reduction of resource areas, and a variety of other factors can quickly result in an infestation of these pests. For instance, a lack of moisture, less than ideal temperatures, the removal of overgrown weeds from a vacant lot next door, or even just lighting that could attract a food source (such as other pests) can all contribute to an increase in the number of invading arthropods that reside in your home or place of business.
The key to controlling these pests is to understand the needs and wants of the type of pest you are dealing with. Effective pest control treatment starts with proper identification. Once the pest is identified, we can work to develop a plan to solve your pest control problems, taking into account the uniqueness of your situation. Not only will we work to understand how the pests have adapted to the environment presented to them and ensure that you are satisfied with the treatment results, but our company will give you information that could help prevent problems with this pest in the future.
When the pest control provider and the client work together, successful long term solutions can be expected. There are specific issues that allow these insects to invade our homes and buildings and even become more likely to choose your building over your neighbor’s home. For instance, the landscaping outside of a home can often create conditions which are conducive to these unwanted pests. With minor adjustments most situations can aesthetically remain unchanged while removing the micro environments that allow the population to thrive and expand. As an example, if your bushes come into direct contact with your home, the pests can use these contact points as travel ways to the building, like exit ramps from the highway. Trimming these bushes back away from the building will lessen their ability to invade your home.
Because Lady Bugs feed on other insects, they can actually provide a useful service to you as nature’s mini pest control technicians, when they are present in limited numbers. For example, the Multi-colored Asian Beetle attacks plant destroying insects such as Aphids. Unfortunately, when hundreds, or even in some cases thousands, of these insects invade your home they can quickly turn into unwanted houseguests. They normally do not interact with people until the fall of the year when they look to move into our homes to spend the winter in a period of inactivity. In the spring, the warmer temperatures awaken these dormant insects and they look to leave the building to go back outside to the trees and plants that support their existence. Improper treatment techniques can lead to other pest issues. Because of this, it is important to contact a trained professional to help you develop a plan that will help you manage these creatures.
At A-Alert, we will first identify the pests and the contributing factors involved. By locating their resources and entry points we can begin enacting strategies to rid you of the current issue and we will be able to develop long-term strategies to prevent or lessen future pest problems.
