Typical Cheektowaga Pest Control Problems

As one of the largest suburbs in Erie County, the town of Cheektowaga includes large numbers of homes tightly packed together. Combined with the cold winters that sweep off of Lake Erie, these factors make rodents a serious pest problem throughout the area. Mice and rats will contaminate food, gnaw holes in walls and food containers, carry fleas and ticks, and spread diseases such as rat-bite fever, Hantavirus, and, though less common, the plague.

Cheektowaga also features a few wooded areas, such as Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve, the land along Cayuga Creek, the land around Bowmansville and Ellicott Creek, and areas between neighborhoods. Cheektowaga’s high humidity and these wooded areas make excellent places for fleas and ticks to thrive. Fleas and ticks make their way onto lawns and gardens by hitching rides on wild animals, including raccoons, squirrels, rodents, and even deer.  Unfortunately, ticks spread diseases like Lyme disease, anaplasmosis, ehrlichiosis, babesiosis, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF). 

Because of its high humidity and hot summers, Cheektowaga is also susceptible to problems with bed bugs. Although they were once thought to be eradicated from the United States, bed bugs have now been on the rise for the past few decades. Only the size of an apple seed, bed bugs can infest any building, no matter how sanitary the conditions are. Hotels and motels are most notorious for having bed bug infestations, but they most often occur in normal residential buildings like apartments, town homes, multi-family houses, and single-family homes. Bed bugs can be picked up almost anywhere, from public transportation such as trains or buses, an infested couch in a coffee shop, or from an overnight stay at a family member’s house. Luckily, bed bugs aren’t known to transmit diseases, but many people experience a huge amount of distress because of these invasive pests. 

Fleas, ticks, and bed bugs require professional treatment. If you suspect an infestation, call Fox Pest Control immediately.

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 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.

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 Buffalo Area. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Buffalo Area 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 Buffalo Area, 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 Buffalo Area 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.

Is a trail of ants marching across your countertop,
or setting up camp in your cupboard?

Don't worry — we've got a solution!

Ants are masters of sneaking into your home through unsealed gaps in your cement, brick or siding.

They can also slip in through open gaps around windows or door frames.

If you've got food or moisture available, they'll come crawling.

Most ants are harmless.

But some, like fire ants, bite and sting.

Other types of ants build huge mounds that can tear up your lawn.

Carpenter ants can burrow into your wood,
causing major damage to window and door frames, or even the structure of your home.

If you see ants, call us.

We'll come that same day to solve your pest problem!

Our licensed, certified technicians know how to get the job done right.

Your Fox Pest Pro will thoroughly inspect your home,
and then create a customized plan to get rid of those pesky ants for good.

After the treatment, we'll send you a detailed report of what we did,
along with helpful suggestions for how to keep the ants outside where they belong.

We follow up with regular inspections,
carefully checking for any potential trouble spots.
