According the the Council Bluffs website, the city is “Unlike anywhere else. On purpose.”, which describes its rich history, location, and local businesses and attractions – making it a unique place to live. The first “Council Bluff” started about 20 miles from the current location of the city, on the Nebraska side of the Fort Atkins River. The Iowa side was inhabited by several Native American reservations, such as Three Fires, Chippewa, Potawatomi, and more. For several decades settlers and tribes fought over land, and eventually the natives were pushed farther west into reservations. By 1848, European settlers had renamed the town Kanesville. In 1852 the town was renamed to Council Bluffs, and became a major outfitting location on the Missouri River for the Emigrant Trail, steamboat trade, and the gold rush.
In 1869, the Transcontinental Railway was completed, making council bluffs the starting port. Other railways arrived soon after, and the start of the Railway Era brought an influx of industries into this community. By the 1930s, the city was the nations 5th largest railway center. The reconstruction of the railroad industry, left Council Bluffs with a shortage of opportunities for work for residents. The city struggled to develop a new economy since the turn of the mid-20th century.

There isn’t a time of year that homes are exempt from pest issues such as ants, spiders, wasps, mice, cockroaches, bed bugs, and more! There are certain pests that thrive during certain times of the year, and we are prepared to protect your home from pests, each new season. In the spring, as the world begins to wake back up, there will be an increase in pest activity on the exterior of the home. This is when many homeowners struggle with how to get rid of ants in the kitchen, because they’re travelling indoors in search of food. Wasps start to build nests for the seasons as well, and can be found flying around searching for place to start building.
Moving into Summer, activity continues outside, and a variety of issues can also arise on the inside of the home. Often times, untreated issues from the previous fall/winter, will start to become issues if left unaddressed. Common summer pests include mosquitoes, spiders, ants, wasps, beetles, silverfish, and more.
As fall approaches, all of the insects that have been active throughout the summer begin to seek out shelter to overwinter. Ants for example, will create satellite colonies within the wall voids of homes, or under slabs, which over several seasons or years, can develop into a serious issue. Especially, when dealing with detrimental pests like carpenter ants, which chew the wood in homes to create tunnels for transportation.
Despite common misconceptions, there is still pest activity in the winter. Mice are common in the winter, as well as spiders, which are a year round pest. If you’re seeing pests like ants or wasps in the winter, its a strong indication that you have a large population living within the home over the winter. It’s important to address these issues each season, so that populations don’t have the time to grow significantly.
