Whether you’re visiting Cambria Castle on Ellicott Creek’s Island, exploring the woods around the neighborhoods or along the creek, or visiting the falls in Glen Park, Williamsville has a number of lovely places to visit. Unfortunately, some of these beautiful natural wonders also bring in pests, including ticks and fleas. Ticks and fleas are likely to hitch a ride on wildlife, a wandering pet, or a person walking nearby, particularly in the wooded areas along Ellicott Creek’s banks and between Williamsville’s streets and neighborhoods. Fleas and ticks are also deposited in lawns and in gardens when flea- or tick-infested wildlife come looking for food or shelter. Although fleas are most infamous for causing itching and other problems for pets, they can also transmit diseases like Cat Scratch Disease, Murine typhus, and, although uncommon, the bubonic plague. Ticks are well known for transmitting Lyme Disease, tularemia, babesiosis, ehrlichiosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted fever.
Because of Williamsville’s winters that are made very cold and snowy by Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, one of the most widespread pest problems is rodents. In fact, officials of the Erie County area have warned citizens in the past about the dangers of rodents and encouraged them to employ pest control efforts against them. Rats and mice find their way into homes and businesses to look for food and make nests, and they cause all kinds of problems. They gnaw on the walls, chew into food storage containers, make messes with their urine and feces, tear up fabric and other materials for nests, and contaminate food. Rats and mice can also spread diseases such as the bubonic plague, Leptospirosis, and Hantavirus. Other rodent problems in these areas can include groundhogs (woodchucks) and gophers, both of which eat plants and vegetables.
If you believe fleas, ticks, or rodents are infesting your home, you need to call a pest control company immediately. Call Fox Pest Control so you can live without the stress of pest infestation.
Joe is the Branch Manager for Buffalo, NY. Every year, he joins forces with the Regional Manager and owner of the branch to host a Christmas party for all of our technicians. Last year in 2019, they chose to celebrate at Texas De Brazil. The team had a great time and looks back on the occasion with fond memories.
“It was great getting together with fellow coworkers — just being able to be vulnerable and connect on a new level with some of them. The food was great too!” Joe said. “This is one of the things that makes me grateful to work within a family atmosphere at Fox.”
