Like much of the greater Chicago area, Des Plaines includes rich soil and steady humidity year-round, courtesy of the many waterways and its proximity to Lake Michigan. Areas such as Lake Park to the Algonquin Woods, the Des Plaines River, and the Klompken Prairie all affect various pest populations throughout the Des Plaines area.
The most dangerous of all pests that Des Plaines sees during the year, but especially in the summertime, are wasps. Wasps are most famous for the various nests they build, like the umbrella wasps with their open comb and the bald-faced hornets with their ball-shaped paper nest. Some yellowjackets build colonies underground, inside attics, in soffits, or in wall voids. In extreme cases, wasps have been known to burrow into the house and gain access inside. This is a concerning accomplishment since wasps are known for being territorial and aggressive. If wasps are building nests in your home or around your property, call Fox Pest Control immediately. Our expert Pest Pros will remove the nests so you can enjoy all that the summer has to offer.

Been using Fox Pest Control since we moved into our home in Glen Ellyn, IL almost two years ago. We just had our latest quarterly treatment. Emilio and Oscar were--as always--professional, courteous, and on time, and they treated our home like it was their own. They are always able to accommodate our schedule, they explain everything and keep us informed, and best of all they keep the bugs and other pests away!

A Fox team member, Christopher Lee, spent 3 years of his early childhood in Des Plaines. He and his family moved to the wonderful town after living in the heart of Chicago. From Des Plaines, they got their first house in Woodridge. Being a native of the surrounding Chicago areas, Chris knows all the best spots for restaurants and parks.
Our Fox technicians love a good meal! Many of them frequent American Wildburger in Des Plaines for tasty, unique burgers. If they’re feeling more adventurous, they go to Restaurant Mehanata for delicious Bulgarian BBQ and cuisine. There’s nothing better than a filling meal after a long day of hard work!
