Waukegan Pest Pressure

Located just north of Chicago along the shores of Lake Michigan is Waukegan, one of Chicago’s largest suburbs. Due to its size and climate, Waukegan is a target for a series of pest activity, including rodents. These pests first arrived to the U.S. aboard ships, and today, rodents still travel from place to place via cargo holds on watercrafts. The city’s human population makes it a hot spot for rodent activity, as ample food, water and shelter sources are available. These pests are known carriers of disease and illness, making them a hazard to human health. However, residents can take action to keep rodents out of their homes by sealing up potential entry points with caulk or mesh wiring. Even the smallest entry point should be sealed up, as rodents can squeeze through cracks and crevices much smaller than their body size would indicate. Since these pests can be harmful to health, Waukegan residents who suspect a rodent infestation should contact a local pest management company to treat the pest.

Another pest that thrives in highly populated areas is the cockroach. Like rodents, these pests seek out shelter, food and water, and are a danger to human health, as they are known to trigger allergies and worsen asthma. The Illinois Department of Public Health cites exclusion and sanitation as two of the main factors that can keep cockroaches out of the home. Keeping a clean and sanitary living space is also key, especially in areas like the bathroom and kitchen, where cockroaches are commonly found hiding out. Residents who spot a cockroach should contact a pest expert right away, as one sighting oftentimes means that there are many more lurking behind the walls.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Recent disappointment We’ve been very pleased with our service until recently. Evidently, our longtime technician (Jason), who was terrific, was transferred to another route with ORKIN and no one bothered to tell us!?! Because of this I no longer feel confident with ORKIN and plan to cancel service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Service and Prompt We initially contacted Orkin, as we had a huge problem with carpenter ants---no rotting wood around our house, but due to multiple oak trees around the property, the pests were in several rooms. The technician checked our entire house from attic to basement and the ongoing treatments have eliminated the problem. The technician is prompt, considerate, and very dedicated to the work.

My new one is the best Orkin Man you’ve ever sent to this house for service. It’s a busy, indifferent world out there, so it comes as a pleasant surprise when you run into someone who takes pride in what he does.

I’d like to compliment the Orkin Technician at my local branch for the excellent service he provided me. He did an outstanding job! He was very thorough. Before starting, he explained different aspects of the pest controlservice to me so that I knew what he was planning to do at my home. He answered my questions as well. I am extremely pleased with the quality of his work.
