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. We are a member of the Chamber of Commerce of the Tonawandas, and do our part to continue the success of the community.
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.
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.
There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Buffalo Area pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience. The products available for purchase at your local hardware store just aren’t as effective as our integrated pest management techniques that safely use professional products and also take pest behavior into account.
Responsible companies like Fox Pest Control use products that are proven to get rid of pests while also being environmentally responsible.
Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.
Our environmentally friendly products are uniquely designed to get rid of the pests while also allowing you to enjoy the comfort and safety of your home. Our products are designed to be child and pet friendly.
We combine modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with a variety of environmentally responsible products. Since each situation — and each pest — is different, we make adjustments accordingly. Speak to our customer service representatives for a list of products used during your service call.
For up to three months after the application, any bugs, insects, or other pests that come across the area will be exterminated. You can rest easy knowing we are controlling the bugs so you can focus on what matters most to you.
During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.
Yes. Each Home Protection Plan (HPP) comes with our Fox Money-Back Guarantee. Call our customer service representatives to let us know if pests come back between your regular services, and we will come back to treat the pests again, free of charge.
For the standard Home Protection Plan, we plan to service the outside of your Buffalo Area home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our technicians have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request a treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Buffalo Area pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.
Many people in Buffalo Area are stung by insects like wasps every year. Some people are allergic to these stings. Because their stinger isn’t barbed, wasps, bumblebees, and some carpenter bees are capable of stinging multiple times.
All our products are formulated and proven by the EPA to be the environmentally responsible choice for effective pest control.
Fox offers organic exterminator treatment products upon customer request. Please speak with our customer service representatives for further details.
There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Buffalo Area home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
