We incorporate the IPM approach to the majority of our accounts. For some accounts, such as schools, day care centers, and healthcare facilities, IPM is a state requirement, mandated by law, and monitored by the Illinois Department of Public Health.


Integrated Pest Management (IPM) is an effective and environmentally sensitive approach to pest management that relies on a combination of common-sense practices. IPM programs use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and their interaction with the environment. This information, in combination with available pest control methods, is used to manage pest damage by the most economical means, and with the least possible hazard to people, property, and the environment. We provide complete pest control services to Springfield and surrounding communities.

Sonny Adams and his team of pest control technicians are residential pest control EXPERTS! We handle all manner of pest control, from ants, spiders, and termites, to mice and rats. We also provide service to eradicate bed bugs, a growing nationwide epidemic that has taken hold in central Illinois. In all cases, we will do an inspection to provide the best possible estimate of time, services, and cost involved in handling your situation.

Our professional service techs are trained extensively to inspect typical hiding places and identify conditions in your home that are conducive to structural pests. If pests are identified, you’ll be provided with specific suggestions for a course of action that will ALWAYS set your family’s health and safety as top priority. Adams Pest Control creates custom service plans built around the needs of each customer. While preventative service on a monthly, bi-monthly or quarterly basis is ideal, we are also happy to help with a one-time, problem-specific call.


In the world of pest control, spring is termite season. These small winged creatures are often mistaken for ants, but often prove to be a larger threat to your home. Termites feed on wood, and may leave areas appearing to be water damaged, which can affect structural foundations, furniture, shelves, books and more. While termites may be difficult to detect, early and effective treatments can make the difference in minimizing damage and preserving your property.

Unfortunately, there is no quick fix for getting rid of termites in your home. Effective treatment requires targeting the source and eliminating the colony within the ground. Any termites found in the home have already swarmed and will likely die soon, at which point they can simply be vacuumed away. The main concern is colony elimination to prevent future swarming and to keep your property free of pests.


Conventional termite control relies on establishing a continuous chemical barrier in the soil around both sides of your foundation. For houses with crawlspaces, treatment includes applications to the soil around piers supporting your floor system. This barrier should prevent foraging termites from reaching the foundation and piers and, ultimately, the wood in your house.

Current state regulations require drilling and treating of the following: 

  • Slabs that adjoin the house (e.g., the garage floor) 
  • The voids in foundation walls, piers, etc. within 4 feet of known termite activity 
  • The walls of earth-filled porches within 3-feet of the foundation wall and any structural wood 


Not even a new home is safe against termites. Termites have been known to invade a new home in as little as a few months after completion. Our trained and certified termite experts can schedule your new home for treatment during or just after construction. Treatment options include either conventional treatments or the Sentricon® System. Adams Pest Control is a Certified Sentricon Specialist of the Sentricon® System.
