Tonawanda means “swift waters,” a name that most likely refers to the Niagara River and its tributaries. These rivers, combined with fertile soil, make an excellent breeding ground for pests such as ants, mosquitoes, and bed bugs.
Common ants include pavement ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. While pavement and odorous house ants are extremely efficient at invading homes and pantries, carpenter ants go a step further. Using their strong jaws, these aptly named critters easily carve their way through damaged and damp wood, though they can also make tunnels through dry and solid wall studs and ceiling beams.
Anywhere with standing water is a potential spot for mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Along the banks of the Ellicott Creek and Tonawanda Creek, low-hanging branches can trap water long enough for mosquitoes to make their homes. Most of the time, a mosquito bite raises an itchy spot on the skin that naturally heals after a few days; but sometimes it’s more serious given that mosquitoes can carry dangerous diseases such as the Chikungunya virus, Zika virus, dengue fever, and West Nile Virus.
Bed bugs also pose a serious threat. Bed bugs made a rapid comeback over the last few decades. They’re most commonly found in single- and multi-family homes, college dorms, hotels, nursing homes, and office buildings. Even though they aren’t known to carry diseases like mosquitoes and ticks do, dealing with a bed bug infestation is a nightmare.. Fortunately, the professionals are on the lookout for bed bugs and know how to effectively get rid of them for you.
Buffalo technician George spent many years living in and exploring the Tonawanda area. He’s been to many different establishments in those years.. As a young boy, he would go to Putt-Putt, which is now known as Adventure Landing, with his family. He enjoyed playing mini golf and arcade games there. They also had a second location with Go-Karts where George worked during the summers as a kid.. Unfortunately, the Go-Kart location closed years ago. However, it brought George a lot of happy memories in his youth. Like George, Fox is proud to be part of the Tonawanda area.
