City of Aurora
Aurora bears the nickname, “The City of Lights,” because in 1881 it was one of the first American cities to implement an all-electric street lighting system. Since that period, Aurora has continued to foster innovation, even boasting impressive buildings designed by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Bruce Goff and George Grant Elmslie, all famous, groundbreaking architects.
Aurora was originally divided into two East and West villages, each established by two families: The Lake brothers and the McCarty brothers. When the two sides finally joined, the townspeople couldn’t decide which side of the river to erect the public buildings, it was settled to build them on or around Stolp Island right in the middle of the Fox river. As Aurora expanded in all directions, and after becoming influential in railroad development all over the region, the city flourished into the major economic hub of the Fox Valley.
The city’s rapid expansion and success thrust Aurora into a progressive movement, and attracted immigrants from Europe and Mexico who contributed to Aurora’s colorful newfound diversity as well as boosting the economy with a wide variety of new businesses opening their doors to the public. Aurora also proudly opened Illinois’ first free public school in 1851.
Today, the vibrant diversity of The City of Lights can still be appreciated. In addition to Aurora’s historical accomplishments and international appeal, it may be most well known in pop-culture nationwide as the home of Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar from the classic film, “Wayne’s World”. It is with pride that ProActive Pest Management delivers world-class, innovative pest control to the residents of this great historical city.
Aurora’s Pest Vulnerability
The Fox River has long since been a driving force in the development of Aurora and other cities built along its banks. Historically, rivers have fostered the growth of great civilizations worldwide, as the surrounding land is fertile, abundant and ideal for establishing economy. Aurora enjoys beautiful riverside landscapes and ponds. While these bodies of water contribute to Aurora’s aesthetic, they also contribute to the city’s increased vulnerability to mosquitoes, spiders, ants, wasps and yellowjackets just to name a few. A whole slew of insect species are, much like humans, attracted to areas rich with water sources.
The most common pests to infiltrate an Aurora home are spiders. It’s estimated, that no matter where you go, you are almost always within five feet of a spider. With Illinois being home to over 500 species of spiders, what kind do you think may be sitting next to you? Spiders are active all year long, even throughout the winter months. During the colder seasons, spiders and other insects are seeking out a safe place to survive the harsh outdoor conditions, and this usually means a warm house. To help you fight the population of insects in and around your home, we offer a comprehensive quarterly management service which reinforces a protective barrier around your home every season and includes free indoor and outdoor treatments in between whenever you need them.
Flying, stinging insects are also a concern for Aurora residents, especially those with serious allergies. The Fox Valley area experiences a wide variety of these aggressive and potentially dangerous pests including bald-faced hornets, cicada killer wasps, yellowjackets and paper wasps. Flying, stinging insects can develop a nest in a tree or in and around a home every season except for Winter. Yellowjackets are the exception to this rule, because they can survive the cold within a warm wall void or other interior portion of a structure if left untreated. While carpenter bees are generally not considered to be dangerous (although can still exhibit aggressive behavior), they can cause unsightly damage to wood siding, decks, or playsets by burrowing into them. All of these pests behave in different ways, but are all serious issues for Aurora home owners. We have a solution for each, and can offer you the peace of mind you need when dealing with hostile pests. Our friendly representatives are happy to customize your service to best suit your needs and concerns.
Mosquitoes are seasonal pests that are not only annoying summertime party-crashers, but they can also carry dangerous pathogens like West Nile Virus. Mosquitoes are found most commonly near water sources, such as such as the Fox River and the many ponds that are scattered throughout Aurora and the surrounding areas. After the eggs, which are laid in stagnant waters hatch, the adults then travel into our yards to pester us while we are trying to enjoy the warm summer nights. During the daytime hours, it’s too hot for mosquito activity, and they rest underneath the shade of tree and bush leaves and in the eaves of homes.
To fight these infamous summer pests, we treat the areas where mosquitoes are known to rest before nightfall. By targeting them while they are vulerable, we can stop them from ruining your next barbeque party. This is a seasonal treatment plan to be applied every three weeks from the end of April to early October to ensure you can enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Aurora in peace!
