From the Niagara Zipper to the Rolin T. Grant Gulf Wilderness Park, Lockport isn’t just a great place for people to come visit; it’s also the perfect place for pests like mosquitoes,wasps, ticks, and fleas. Nature can still be enjoyed, but it also poses some pest concerns that all the people of Lockport should know about.
Although the trees along the Erie Canal are beautiful, they often dip into the water and create a potential breeding ground for mosquitoes. Anywhere with standing water could be a possible mosquito zone. E Mosquito bites normally produce an itchy welt on the skin, but they can also carry diseases like Chikungunya virus, malaria, Zika virus, and West Nile virus, to name a few.
The high humidity levels in Lockport and surrounding areas make it possible for insects like wasps to thrive. Wasps, including hornets and yellowjackets, are especially dangerous because they can sting multiple times and cause a person with insect allergies to go into anaphylaxis.
The beautiful forested areas also attract wild animals that can carry ticks and fleas. Throughout the east coast, the high humidity levels accommodate fleas and ticks by keeping them hydrated. Fleas can cause flea allergy dermatitis to pets and could spread illnesses like Cat Scratch Disease and tapeworms.They’re also known for carrying the bubonic plague and Typhus. Ticks are even more serious because they can transmit many diseases directly to people, including Lyme disease, Rickettsiosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever.

Fox technician Andy has spent years around the Lockport area. Growing up in Lockport, Andy knows all of the ins and outs. When he was younger, he and his friends would all get together to ride dirt bikes and snowmobiles around trails, fields, and other outdoor areas. He cherishes the memory of him and his close friends hopping onto their dirt bikes and riding down to their secret spot they called “The Hole”. The Hole was simply a swimming hole where Andy and his friends would swim and hang out together, but it holds sentimental value for him and his group of friends. Even though Andy hasn’t been to The Hole in a long time, he will never forget those moments.
