Typical Tonawanda Pest Control Problems

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.

Our Connection to Tonawanda

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.

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.
