Rodent Prevention Tips For Dwight, IL Residents
Rodents are a serious pest problem for home and business owners located throughout Illinois. There are many dangers and problems associated with rodents living inside of residential and commercial properties that include:
- Rodents contaminate food sources.
They introduce parasites like fleas, ticks, and mites into your home.
Rodents spread a variety of serious diseases through the saliva, urine, and feces.
They cause damage to personal belongings and the structure of your building. Rodent incisors continuously grow, and to prevent overgrowth they chew and gnaw on objects continuously.
When it comes to keeping dangerous and damaging rodents out of your Dwight home, the best prevention tip that we have is to put into place a year-round pest control service. Our Home Guardian SM Service provides you with the services needed to quickly and completely eliminate current problems with rodents and prevent them from re-entering into your home throughout the entire year.

Termite Control Options In Dwight, IL

It quickly works to eliminate existing termite colonies and stays in place to provide ongoing termite monitoring and prevention. Other termite control options that we have available include:

How To Avoid Bed Bugs In Dwight, IL
Bed bugs are pests that hide in the hard-to-reach areas of your Dwight property. They wait for the right moment and then they latch onto humans and feed off of their blood, which they require in order to survive. Because these pests can be so hard to spot, preventing them is very important. Here are a few tips to try:
Inspect secondhand items. One of the most common ways that bed bugs make their way inside your home or place of business is latched onto used items like furniture, appliances, and mattresses. Before bringing anything like this into your home, always inspect items scrupulously for signs of bed bug activity.
Travel safely. Because bed bugs crop up wherever people are, it’s not uncommon to encounter them during travel, hotel stays, or taking public transportation. When traveling, always inspect your clothes thoroughly and store any worn items, washing them immediately upon returning home
Minimize wildlife populations. Before animals like raccoons and squirrels make their way to your Dwight property, they’ve already spent time in unsanitary conditions, picking up parasites along the way. In addition to spreading bed bugs, wildlife may also bring fleas, ticks, and mites to your property.

Why Professional Mosquito Control For Your Dwight Yard Is A Good Idea
If you’ve ever spent time outside in your Dwight yard only to get pestered by mosquitoes, you’re not alone. With mosquito season-spanning, nearly half of the year, avoiding them can feel like a constant struggle. They buzz around primarily during dusk and dawn; however, it’s not uncommon for mosquitoes to be present whenever there are people around. Mosquitoes require blood in order to reproduce, which means that they’re always searching for the right host. And they’re attracted to so much about us. Things like the type of blood you have, whether or not you’ve had a beer, the type of soap and detergent you use if you’re pregnant, and how much you sweat all have the ability to send up a flare to mosquitoes that it’s open season.
It’s not uncommon for Dwight property owners to try to mitigate their exposure to mosquitoes by limiting the factors that attract mosquitoes. However, these tips are not going to get at the root cause of why you have mosquitoes, nor are they going to offer you the complete protection that you need. That’s why the best thing you can do is contact Quik-Kill Pest Eliminators about our mosquito control offerings. We provide homeowners with fully automated misting systems, or we come to your home on a monthly basis and perform the services ourselves. Either way, you can enjoy your property again. Contact us today for more information about our mosquito control.
What You Need To Know About Spiders In Dwight
Spiders are a commonly found pest throughout Dwight properties, so here are a few things that you should know about them:
Not all spiders are dangerous, but some are. When it comes to spiders that are harmful to your health, the two species that you need to be aware of are the black widow and brown recluse.
Spiders eat other pests. If you’ve ever wondered why you have a spider problem on your property, there’s a pretty good chance that you have at least one other active infestation. Spiders eat the likes of gnats, cockroaches, smaller spiders, mosquitoes, and flies.
They’re anti-social. By and large, spiders prefer to be left alone. That’s why you can commonly find their webs in attics, basements, and tucked underneath furniture.
Keeping your home clean should help prevent spiders. While many of the pests that attract spiders thrive off of filth, keeping your home clean and decluttered will also help prevent spiders themselves from invading, as they love to hide in cluttered areas that don't get much attention.

All The Different Ants That Can Invade Your Dwight Home
Given that ants are the most common nuisance pest in the United States, there are many different species that could make their way into your Dwight home. Here are a few of the ants to be on the lookout for:
Fire ant. Small and fiery red, as the name suggests, the fire ant creates mounds and when threatened, will sting en masse. These stings can be very painful, and in some cases, trigger allergic reactions.
Carpenter ant. These small black ants work similarly to termites, in that they find vulnerable wood and begin to nest inside. But unlike termites, carpenter ants don’t actually eat the wood, they simply burrow in it. The damage they can cause is significant.
Pavement ants. These ants make their colony in the pavement and are attracted to sweet foods. Cement with cracks is highly susceptible to invasion.
Little black ants. Common in the summertime, these very tiny ants are often found in heavily wooded areas and come equipped with a small stinger.
