Termites are arguably the most distructive pest causing $Billions in damage to homes in the US each year, and are capable of destroying nearly any home that they infest if ignored. Termites are indigonous to Illinois and have been found in approximately 1 in 50 homes. Termites may live as deep as 300 feet under ground and feed in a 5 acre pattern, which means that if any home on a city block has been known to have termites, all homes on that block are at risk. At first glance swarming ants and swarming termites look similar, however close observation will show that the termites wings are twice the length of its body (which is much longer than an ants wings. Also the body of an ant will have 3 distinct segments (head, thorax, and abdomen), compared with a termites 2 distinct segments (head and abdomen). Termites are not a pest you want to try to treat yourself, nor is it a pest you want to ignore. If you think you have Termites, call us at 630-513-8120.

Powder Post Beetle
Carpenter Bees can be a nuisance to homeowners, as they tunnel into wooden decks, eaves, porches, etc. If you see what appears to be a Bumblebee emerging from a perfectly round ½ inch hole it will be a Carpenter bee. This 1/2” entrance is only the beginning of the damage they do. Once inside, the queen makes a right angle turn and continues to tunnel up to 18”, to lay eggs. To be effective, each hole must be treated to eliminate both the queen and the young after they emerge. Treatment by homeowners is rarely effective against both, and significant cosmetic damage often continues to occur, because the problem has not been totally eliminated.
