Sleep Tight and Don’t Let the Bed Bugs Bite
As much as we try to contain the problem, bed bugs are a reality we all have to deal with. This is especially evident in the resurgence of the pest in recent years in many places across the country. From major cities like New York, West like Los Angeles, and even right here in the Midwest – no one can predict where the next outbreak will take place. Fortunately, Midwest Exterminating knows precisely how to deal with the problem. We’ve put together a few quick tips for homeowners on how to deal with bed bugs.Understanding What These Pests are All AboutBed bugs are parasitic insects that are essentially stowaways. These pests slip into homes and other establishments in many different ways. In most cases, though, bed bugs hide out in cracks and crevices of things like luggage, furniture, pillows, and various other objects. The common misconception is that the presence of these pests has something to do with the hygiene of a particular area; but this is not the case. Bed bugs...

Midwest Stops:Termites. Fleas. Ticks. Ants. Mice. Bedbugs.

To Kill a Mocking Silverfish
Have you recently noticed damages in your wallpaper, bookbindings, fabrics, and dry food items? Are there yellow stains on your beds and cushions? Your house may be free from ants, mice, and termites, but if you still have silverfish around, you’re in for a lot of trouble. Yes, Silverfish are tiny, but trust me, they can do some damage if left uncontrolled. Silverfish are small insects about half an inch long. They got their name from their silvery, fish-like bodies that move in quick, darting motions. Silverfish prefer staying in dark, humid places like basements, beneath sinks, and laundry rooms. These pests require extermination because they’re big nuisance. They are not in any way harmful to humans or animals, since they don’t bite or sting, but they can cause damage by nibbling on food, clothes, wallpaper, and other paper items. Silverfish destroy these things as their diet consists of starches, glue, mold, yarn, and silk. Hardy little pests that they are,...

Midwest Coach on the Roach
Among the most unpleasant and common pests to invade homes and businesses in Northern Illinois is the cockroach. Regardless of species, cockroaches are associated with filth and unkempt homes. This isn’t necessarily true. Cockroaches happen in clean environments as well. An adult cockroach can subsist for a year on the glue on the back of a postage stamp. Even the most sterile environments provide ample nourishment for a large infestation. We at Midwest Exterminating would like to let you know that if you suspect these vermin have invaded your home or business, there is nothing to be ashamed of, and you are not alone.  Our exterminators have the experience, training, and knowledge to get your house back to feeling like a home.  While store bought remedies usually cause more problems than they help-only allowing infestations to grow before you break down and call an exterminator- there are some things you can do yourself to identify if you have a problem and work in...
