Chicago Pest Pressure

Urban Pests
As the third most populous city in the United States, Chicago, IL, offers plenty of incentives for people and pests to settle down. Common urban pest problems include:

Ants
With 12 major ant species in the city, local residents are likely to find these pests both outside and in homes. During wet weather, odorous house ants or pavement ants move indoors in large numbers to seek higher ground. Trash cans, pantry goods, and food crumbs also attract them inside for an easy meal.

Norway Rats
Norway rats are the main urban rat species in Chicago. While the city examines cases of infestation, large urban areas struggle to keep the rodents in check. The Norway rat is a digging pest that burrows in the ground and may gain entrance through foundation cracks, by digging under foundations, or climbing from sewers into buildings. One of the more sensational, but true, ways in which rats may gain inside entrance is by swimming through sewer pipes and exiting inside via the common commode. They eat out of pantries, other stored or spilled foods, damage property, and spread disease.

Indoor Pests
In addition to cities, the following nuisance pests are equally comfortable in the suburbs, infesting Chicago houses and apartments:

Spiders
Able to climb walls with ease and fit through tiny holes, these arachnids are hard to keep out of homes. Illinois species include house, wolf, and jumping spiders. Though such pests are mostly harmless, residents sometimes spot the dangerous northern black widow spider as well.

Stink Bugs
Brown marmorated stink bugs are a familiar seasonal pest to Chicago homeowners. The flat, shield-shaped insects overwinter in walls, attics, and other indoor places. People often see them in the fall as the pests search for places to hunker down, or in the spring when they emerge. These stink bugs don’t bite or hurt humans, but a stink bug gives off a foul smell if crushed and they can become a serious nuisance.
