Typical Buffalo Pest Control Problems

Because it sits along the edges of both the Niagara River and Lake Erie, Buffalo residents may see influxes of mosquitoes during the hottest months of the year. Some residents near Hoyt Lake in Delaware Park may also see an increase of mosquito activity, especially in areas like Albright and Park Meadow. Mosquitoes can leave an itchy welt on the skin after a bite, but they can also transmit diseases such as Chikungunya, Zika virus, malaria, and West Nile virus.

The most dangerous pest problems in Buffalo, however, are the wasps. Buffalo shows extremely high humidity levels throughout the summer months, which are prime conditions for wasps of all kinds. Wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, and other social wasps in the area can be exceptionally vicious. Bald-faced hornets are one of many species that defend their nest when they perceive a potential threat. Some species of yellowjackets even make their nests underground. In extreme cases, wasps, yellowjackets, or hornets will make a nest on a home and tunnel inward until they are seen flying around interior home spaces such as kitchens, bedrooms, or basements.

Since Buffalo is one of the largest cities in New York State and residents are usually housed closely together, rodents become one of the biggest threats when cold Lake Erie winters take hold. Rodents such as groundhogs and gophers tunnel through yards and feast on valuable plants of all kinds. Mice and rats search for shelter and food in kitchens and basements. They gnaw on walls, chew through food storage containers, tear up materials, and contaminate food. These well-known rodents are also known to carry fleas and ticks and transmit diseases like rat-bite fever and Hantavirus. Since rodents are a significant health concern, officials of Erie County caution their citizens about the dangers and risks rodents cause and encourage them to seek pest control solutions to avoid these dangers. If you think you have a rodent problem, call Fox Pest Control immediately.

Our Connection to Buffalo

Branch Manager Joe has been with our company for many years, and he loves to spend time with his children whenever possible. Joe has a memory of when he and his daughter, Olivia, went to a local baseball game. This particular game was hosted by the Buffalo Bisons going against the Rochester Red Wings. Olivia was so fortunate, she caught a ball that was hit into the stands! It was a memorable father-daughter bonding experience in the great city of Buffalo.

At Fox Pest Control, we take pride in being part of the communities we serve. Buffalo is our home too, and we do what we can to support local organizations. This is why we sponsor Service Collaborative, a WNY based organization that helps better the community. One of their current projects is Beds for Buffalo, whose goal is to build 200 beds for children in need so that they will have a higher chance of future success. Other organizations that Fox sponsors include Buffalo Titans basketball, the University of Buffalo Robotics Club, Friends of the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter and HOME: Housing Opportunities Made Equal, who works to ensure all people have an equal opportunity to the communities of their choice.

Fox Pest Control’s Pest Exterminator Service

Pests come in all shapes and sizes. From ants in your kitchen, to termites in your foundation, bug infestations are an inevitable part of homeownership in Buffalo Area. Some bugs are just a nuisance, like silverfish or crickets which like dark damp places. Other pests like termites or rodents are cause for concern as they cause property damage and can carry disease. Whatever the pest problem you might have in Buffalo Area, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Buffalo Area pest might be bothering you.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

You might already know you have a pest problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination look for in Buffalo Area. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Buffalo Area is simply by observing it. It could be a mouse in your house, cockroaches skittering when you turn on the lights, or a swarm of hornets around a nest. In any case, it’s time to get rid of pests!
  • Signs of activity. Pests are adept at hiding from us, so you won’t always spot them. Instead, you might notice signs of their presence such as rodent droppings or small piles of “saw dust”  resulting from termite or carpenter ant activity.

What You Need to Know About Pests

  • Pests come in a large variety. In Buffalo Area, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • Pests find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping.  It’s important to get help from a professional exterminator because, depending on the species, they may create nests, contaminate food and water in your kitchen and bathroom, or cause damage to the inside of walls, electrical wiring, or other parts of the house.
  • While some pests can cause home damage, many carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. You must control mosquitoes and rodents as they are the most notorious for this.
  • Spiders and wasps are famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

Helpful Buffalo Area Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.

Is a trail of ants marching across your countertop,
or setting up camp in your cupboard?

If you've got food or moisture available, they'll come crawling.

Most ants are harmless.

But some, like fire ants, bite and sting.

Other types of ants build huge mounds that can tear up your lawn.

Carpenter ants can burrow into your wood,
causing major damage to window and door frames, or even the structure of your home.

If you see ants, call us.

We'll come that same day to solve your pest problem!
