Typical Troy Pest Control Problems

Along the Hudson River, Troy residents may notice rodents in or around their homes. Mice and rats are drawn to water sources since rivers and lakes offer the rodents plenty of food and provide shelter in the form of sticks and leaves. However, once the temperature drops, they’re forced to move indoors. Rodents are able to squeeze through small cracks at any level of your home. Keep an eye out for rodent droppings as that is a tell-tale sign of an infestation.

During the warmer months in Troy, ants can also be a nuisance. They will invade homes looking for food or moisture and can enter through the tiniest of cracks. Though regular household ants may be bothersome, carpenter ants are the true playground bullies.

Carpenter ants can create serious problems for homeowners in Troy. They chew tunnels through wood, damaging the structural integrity of buildings. If firewood, fencing, or wooden construction material is close to the home, carpenter ants can use those materials for nesting. They are then drawn to food and water inside the house. 

To avoid household ants and carpenter ants, keep branches and other materials located at least a few feet from the home. It’s also important to keep your kitchen clean and fix leaky pipes. Just like rodents, ants love water. Why not stay pest-free for as long as possible?

Our Connection to Troy

Albany Branch Manager, Kevin Wells, lives in Troy. He has wonderful memories of going to get ice cream at the Snowman Ice Cream stand. He also loves walking along the hiking trails on Peebles Island with his dogs. His walks serve as both a relaxing stroll and a visual history lesson since you can still see the mounds the Americans used during the Revolutionary War while hiking! Jeremiah, a Fox technician, and other team members agree that Peeble Island is a great place to experience both nature and history.

Recently, our Albany technicians held their Green Glove Project, an annual trash pickup project, at Prospect Park in Troy. They filled eight trash bags with litter over the course of a few hours.

Kevin was proud of the work his team did. “We did this project to help out in the community in which we work,” he said. “We’re glad to have been able to lend a hand to clean up our community.”

Fox Pest Control’s Pest Exterminator Service

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 Albany. 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 Albany, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Albany pest might be bothering you.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

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 Albany. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Albany is simply by observing it. It could be a mouse in your house, cockroaches skittering when you turn on the lights, or a swarm of hornets around a nest. In any case, it’s time to get rid of pests!
  • Signs of activity. Pests are adept at hiding from us, so you won’t always spot them. Instead, you might notice signs of their presence such as rodent droppings or small piles of “saw dust”  resulting from termite or carpenter ant activity.

What You Need to Know About Pests

  • Pests come in a large variety. In Albany, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • 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 exterminator 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.
  • 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 famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

Helpful Albany Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
  • Store all food in airtight containers. 
  • Never leave food (including pet food) outside.
  • Clear all debris, tools, garbage.
