Typical East Hartford Pest Control Problems

Because it’s located further inland than cities like Stratford and Bridgeport, East Hartford has a little less humidity by comparison.However, like much of Connecticut, East Hartford still has plenty of small ponds, brooks, and other water features that can support pests of all kinds.The biggest issues citizens in East Hartford may come across are wasps and ants. 

Wasps are the most dangerous pest problem throughout Connecticut. Wasps like yellowjackets, hornets, and paper wasps can make nests in eaves and soffits, under house siding, among tree branches, inside wooden or metal fences, or even underground. They’re also hyper-territorial and aggressive. For some people, a wasp sting might only raise a painful welt for a few days. For others, a single sting could be deadly. 

Ants are pervasive throughout the entire United States, and East Hartford is no exception. Common house-invading ants include pavement ants, pharaoh ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. Of all the types that cause problems for homeowners, carpenter ants are the most destructive. They use their massive jaws to carve tunnels and galleries through wooden structures. Carpenter ants can live inside a home for 8-10 years and cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage before they’re discovered. The damage they cause is usually not covered by insurance. For these reasons, it’s critical to contact Fox Pest Control right away if you expect an infestation.

Our Connection to East Hartford

Brian Brown, a Fox manager and resident of East Hartford, is a history buff when it comes to his hometown. East Hartford is a riverside town that’s a bridge away from Hartford, the mecca of culture and diversity. It’s the perfect place for Brian. East Hartford is home to the old Coca-Cola bottling company and the Pratt and Whitney Stadium at Rentschler Field that was originally built to host the New England Patriots. The stadium is now the home field for UConn football, other various sporting events and concerts year round.

Keith Thom started servicing East Hartford when he became part of the Fox Family in September of 2021. Born in New Haven, CT, Keith has lived in Connecticut his whole life. Although he recently had a change in his route, he was an excellent East Hartford exterminator while in the area and has has noteworthy connections to the industrious city of East Harford.

Keith passed the Pratt and Whitney Aircraft Company often while servicing in East Hartford. The factory is hard to miss and is a representation of East Hartford’s long history in the aircraft industry. Built in 1925, the company has been producing aircraft parts for almost 100 years! Keith especially enjoys the Cabela’s on East Hartford Boulevard. He’s been to Cabela’s multiple times on his time off to purchase sporting supplies and apparel. The creative animal display at Cabela’s makes shopping trips more of an experience than just a stop for Keith. 

The Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Company is so popular, there’s even a stadium named after its namesakes. Pratt & Whitney Stadium houses Rentschler field, where Keith has gone to attend University of Connecticut Huskies football games. For Keith, watching a game in-person is the perfect way to spend a weekend after a busy week providing pest control services. In addition to football, the stadium also hosts soccer games. What’s better than game day?
Here at Fox, we’re so grateful to Keith for joining our team and for his hard work to help make Fox Pest Control one of the best companies to receive a quality home pest control service in the East Hartford area.

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 Connecticut. 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 Connecticut, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Connecticut 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 Connecticut. 

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