Albany, NY is home to a variety of different pests. Some of the most common pests that we deal with include:
Cockroaches: Cockroaches can be a big problem in Albany, NY. They are attracted to food and water, so they can easily find their way into your home.
Mice & Rodent Control: Mice are known to carry diseases and can be difficult to get rid of once they get into your property. They can also cause damage to your home by chewing on insulation and wires. That’s why rodent control in Albany is important in order to keep your family safe from these pests.
Ants: Ants can be a nuisance in any home. They can contaminate your food if they get into your pantry and can also bite if they feel threatened.
Termite Treatment: Termites can cause serious damage to your home if they are not treated properly. They feed on wood, so they can quickly destroy the structure of your home if they are not dealt with.
Residents in the Albany area may notice rodents or stink bugs in their homes during the fall and winter months.
In a residential area like Bethlehem, mice, rats, and stink bugs are drawn toward the comfort and safety of a house.
They also seek food, which is easily accessible in kitchens or in one’s garbage. Mice and rats can sneak through small cracks in eaves, window and door frames, roofs, or vents. They will nest in areas of the house that are out of the way and safe, such as in an attic, a garage, or inside walls.
Rodents will travel through the house to find food, leaving droppings along the way. Take note of any droppings you find as these animals can carry dangerous diseases.
Stink bugs will enter the home in similar ways and hide in small spaces like cracks, crevices, and curtain rods to stay safe and warm.
Ants, on the other hand, are more prevalent in the spring and summer months. They will enter your home seeking food or moisture. To avoid dealing with ants, keep your home free of food crumbs and leaky pipes.
If you notice rodents, stink bugs, or ants in your home, call Fox Pest Control. Our team of experienced technicians is here to help you feel comfortable and safe.
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 pest removal expert 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.
You might already know you have a pest problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination looks for in Albany.
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 also famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

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.
Nearby 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 Albany 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. Contact 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 at (518) 300-4732 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 Albany 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 Albany 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 Albany 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 Albany home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
