A vibrant city with a historic downtown and a booming agricultural region surrounding city limits, Bloomington is a great place to live and work.
Our Bloomington exterminators are kept busy year round. Residents often see an increase of nuisance pests in the warmer months. The need to control wasps, termites, mosquitos, and roaches peaks in the summer. As temperatures drop in the fall and winter, Bloomington pest control picks up again as rodent infestations start to become a problem. As a homeowner, you would need to get rid of mice because they are able to squeeze through small cracks (¼-inch in diameter) at any level of your home. Keep an eye out for rodent droppings as that is a tell-tale sign of an infestation. Rodents can be hazardous to homeowners as they can transfer life threatening diseases and can cause serious damage to the home.
Ants are a problem in the area as well. To avoid household ants and carpenter ants, keep tree branches and other loose materials at least a few feet from your home. Keeping your kitchen clean is helpful, as well as repairing any leaky pipes or faucets.
There are so many pests for Bloomington homeowners to worry about, but thankfully, you’re not alone. Fox Pest Control is here to help clear up your pests problems so that you can live worry free.
We at Fox Pest Control are proud of our membership in the McLean County Chamber of Commerce, headquartered in Bloomington, because we believe in being a part of the communities in which we live and work. Our Fox Pest Control team also has a deep connection to Bloomington. Our Technician Adam Lucas was born in Greenville and now lives in McLean. Adam served nine years in the Illinois Army National Guard. He understands what area homeowners are up against when it comes to controlling pests. Adam and his wife just purchased a house and are busy getting settled. When he’s not smoking meats at home, he’ll be driving their ‘86 Mustang on the country roads around, or going to Biaggi’s for a bite. Adam says they spend a lot of their leisure time either at the Miller Park Zoo, or going go-karting at Grady’s. Adam says he and his teammates, “Are up to tackle the pest problems the people of Bloomington are dealing with. We want our customers to enjoy their homes and yards year round.”
Pests come in all shapes and sizes. From ants in your kitchen, to termites in your foundation, bug infestations are an inevitable part of homeownership in Bloomington. Some bugs are just a nuisance, like silverfish or crickets which like dark damp places. Other pests like termites or rodents are cause for concern as they cause property damage and can carry disease. Whatever the pest problem you might have in Bloomington, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Bloomington pest might be bothering you.
You might already know you have a pest problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination look for in Bloomington.
There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Bloomington pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience. The products available for purchase at your local hardware store just aren’t as effective as our integrated pest management techniques that safely use professional products and also take pest behavior into account.
Responsible companies like Fox Pest Control use products that are proven to get rid of pests while also being environmentally responsible.
Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.
Our environmentally friendly products are uniquely designed to get rid of the pests while also allowing you to enjoy the comfort and safety of your home. Our products are designed to be child and pet friendly.
We combine modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with a variety of environmentally responsible products. Since each situation — and each pest — is different, we make adjustments accordingly. Speak to our customer service representatives for a list of products used during your service call.
For up to three months after the application, any bugs, insects, or other pests that come across the area will be exterminated. You can rest easy knowing we are controlling the bugs so you can focus on what matters most to you.
During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.
Yes. Each Home Protection Plan (HPP) comes with our Fox Money-Back Guarantee. Call our customer service representatives to let us know if pests come back between your regular services, and we will come back to treat the pests again, free of charge.
For the standard Home Protection Plan, we plan to service the outside of your Bloomington home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our technicians have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request a treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Bloomington pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.
Many people in Bloomington are stung by insects like wasps every year. Some people are allergic to these stings. Because their stinger isn’t barbed, wasps, bumblebees, and some carpenter bees are capable of stinging multiple times.
All our products are formulated and proven by the EPA to be the environmentally responsible choice for effective pest control.
Fox offers organic exterminator treatment products upon customer request. Please speak with our customer service representatives for further details.
There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Bloomington home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
