Rodents are at their worst during Chicago winters
Houses offer warmth, shelter, and access to food and water during winter months. Landmark’s Complete Home provides year round mouse protection.
Mice produce up to 10 litters per year of five to six young. Since it only takes six weeks for newborns to have litters of their own, a very small number of mice can quickly escalate into a huge infestation. Landmark Complete Home includes thorough inspections for indications of rodent activity during every visit. Our nontoxic rodent monitoring technology reduces reliance on rodenticides and identifies mouse activity before your unwanted guests get out of control.
Mice can enter through a gap smaller than a dime. Once inside, they infest attics and walls, ruining insulation with the musty odors caused by their urine and feces that can harbor diseases transmissible to humans including salmonellosis and leptospirosis. Landmark Complete Home provides early detection of mouse issues to protect your most valuable investments, the health and security of your home and family.
Do Chicago Homeowners Have Insects in the winter?
Winter is an important time for an insect inspection. For many species, the adults mate in the fall and they deposit their eggs in cracks and crevices in and around your home to overwinter. The eggs remain alive in a state of near hibernation waiting for favorable environmental conditions so that they can reactivate their development and eventually emerge in the spring. It’s during this dormancy period that we have an opportunity to eliminate them while they rest, significantly reducing pests in your home year over year.
Because few insects are seen in the winter, many mistakenly believe that wintertime pest control inspections aren’t needed. However, some cold-tolerant insects even produce glycerol and other ice nucleating agents that serve as nature’s antifreeze in response to low temperatures. It’s important to perform service year round to monitor and suppress insects in every season.
- Only the species listed above are included. All other species are specifically excluded. Excluded species include but are not limited to: Lice, bed bugs, wildlife, honey bees, and *brown recluse and black widow spiders.
- If a rodent infestation is identified during inspection, a Wildlife Inspector will visit at no charge to evaluate the level of infestation and discuss a treatment plan.
