Originally called Forest City by early settlers, Rockford has grown in size, but never lost its lush greenery. With over 7,000 acres of parkland, public gardens and tree lined streets, Rockford residents truly get a big city feel while being surrounded by nature. The only downside to all of this greenery is the pests that come with it. Each spring mosquitoes hatch out of the Rock River and make their way into parks and yards. Mosquitoes can pose a serious threat to Rockford homeowners as they are known to carry diseases such as Zika Virus, Malaria and Dengue Fever.
Rockford winters bring cold weather, and a threat of rodent infestations. As the temperature drops, mice and rats begin looking for warm places to spend the winter, and your home is an ideal location. Homeowners should be vigilant to seal any possible entry points around the outside of the home, this could include cracks in the foundation, loose air conditioning lines, or an open garage door. If you have a pest infestation in or around your home, you should call Fox Pest Control, and one of our expert Rockford pest control technicians will be able to quickly take care of the problem for you.
For Fox Pest Pro Killian Hoffmann, pest control is a family business, her brother Hunter works at our Chicago branch as well! Killian lives in Woodstock, but commutes to Rockford to help customers a few times a week. She loves working in Rockford, and enjoys the beautiful scenery and elegant homes. Her favorite part of working in Rockford is the chance to see the Rock River flowing just a few feet away while servicing area homes. There’s never a dull moment in pest control Killian says, and she once helped a Rockford area customer catch a pet chicken that had flown the coop!
Fox strives to be involved in the communities we serve, on top of eliminating area pests. In the Rockford community, we are proud sponsors of the Nikolas Ritschel Foundation, a Rockford based organization that supports young adults, ages 18-24 who are fighting cancer. The foundation believes that this a time in young adults lives where they should be making friends, focusing on school, or pursuing a career. Unfortunately, this opportunity is often taken from cancer patients, who instead spend much of their time in treatment at children’s hospitals. While they may not be able to get all of these opportunities back, the foundation helps these brave young adults by providing them with a Nik’s Wish Grant, giving them the opportunity to have awesome experiences and create lasting memories with those they care about most. These young men and women embody everything that Fox stands for, especially our core values of Relationships First, Family, and Courage.
Another organization that we are proud to be a part of is the Swedish Historical Society of Rockford. Established in 1938, the society was organized exclusively for historical, educational and charitable purposes. They strive for the preservation of Swedish-American history and how the culture has become part of the Rockford community. The cultural centerpiece in Rockford is the Erlander Home Museum, built in 1871 and kept in good condition to this day. The museum features historic furniture and artifacts from Sweden and Swedish immigrants. Fox Pest Control is always looking for more ways to get involved in the communities that we work and live in.
