How To Get Rid Of Ants | Fox Pest Control

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.

If ants return, simply give us a call,
we'll come back for free!

Does a swollen tick bite mean I have Lyme disease?

A small amount of swelling in the area near the bite for a few days doesn’t necessarily indicate Lyme disease. Many people experience a mild allergic reaction to a tick’s saliva, but the swelling should be gone within a few days. Nevertheless, if you have a tick infestation, let Fox Buffalo Area come to your house to with tick removal.

How do I know if I have Lyme disease from a tick bite?

If the swollen spot grows and swelling persists for a week or more, this could be an early sign of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme could prevent its long-term effects. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you see early signs of Lyme disease. In the meantime, call Fox for the best tick extermination treatment.

How can I prevent Lyme disease from tick bites?

Transmission of Lyme disease from ticks can take 24-48 hours in most cases, so by checking for ticks regularly, you can avoid many of the problems ticks cause. If you do find you have an infestation, Fox will send a certified tick exterminator -- in many cases that same day.

If you are bitten by a tick and you’re worried about a potential infection, seek medical attention right away.

5-Star Pestimonials

Mike M came to treat the ants and ticks in the yard. Explained everything about the process and how to handle the ticks if they get on your skin. Excellent knowledge and experience.

Jennifer Bush

The experience was above and beyond. We have never had such a thorough pest control company. And your employees from beginning to end are phenomenal. Ironically we were on the hunt for a new pest control company. When we did some research, your company appeared. Before we had a chance to call, someone knocked on our door. It was crazy. We couldn't believe it. The gentleman at our door was cold calling our neighborhood. He was informative, kind and not at all threatening. We were in a hurry as we were going out and he was so accommodating. The next day as schedule they came out. I have never seen a more thorough pest control company. The time he spent on the outside of my house was mine blowing. Checking things, doing things we've never had done. Flea and tick control. Walking the perimeter of our house. Then he came inside. He was pleasant, I felt incredibly comfortable with him, and so informative. Then we got an email later asking if we were satisfied. Seriously, this pest control is above and beyond. You get service, very informative information, and follow up. Best customer service ever. Highly recommend.

Frank was our technician today. He was great! Thank you

Ellen Scumaci

Today a young man named Paxton stopped at my door letting me know they were in the area offering a discount for their service as they were already in the area. Paxton was professional and accommodating calling his office as needed to get my questions answered on the spot to move the process forward. Not only Paxton professional but the service tech sent to our home names Ryan was equally outstanding. Ryan made us feel comfortable. He answered questions based on his experienced based knowledge. He was stellar. It was clear to us he loved his work as well as his employer. At the end of the day we took the next step securing a quarterly agreement with Fox Pest Control having no doubt we are in good hands.
