Believe it or not, winter time is also foundation ant season. Many homes in Northern Illinois are built on slabs. This means their homes have no crawl space or basement. Many houses in Streamwood, Schaumburg, Hoffman Estates, McHenry and Buffalo Grove are built on a slab foundation. Because their homes literally sit on the ground, slab ants and odorous house ants will swarm up into people’s homes looking for food and water. Slab homes with PVC piping running through the floor are especially prone to having these ants. When these clients turn on their furnaces, the ground under the home will warm up and stir the ants into activity. Call Schopen Pest Solutions today for pricing and some answers to your ant issues!
