Typical Manchester Pest Control Problems

Because of the cold Connecticut winters, the single most widespread pest problem throughout the state, including Manchester, is rodents. Rodents are attracted to high-population areas. Mice and rats enter homes by wiggling through tiny cracks, crevices, and holes, gaps between utility pipes and the walls, and other chinks in the home’s armor. Once they have access, they search for hiding places, food, water, and good nesting material. They’ll eat anything from food storage or peanut butter to pet food and bird seed. Because their teeth never stop growing, they also have a strong instinct to chew and gnaw on anything and everything available. Unfortunately, both mice and rats tend to carry various diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, hemorrhagic fevers, tularemia, salmonella, and even the plague. 

One of the most pervasive pest problems throughout Connecticut and the United States is ants. Ant species that commonly invade homes include pharaoh ants, pavement ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. Of all these types, carpenter ants are the most destructive. Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve through almost any wood. Although carpenter ant colonies only have one queen, they are capable of making satellite colonies in order to expand territory. However, these are extremely difficult to eradicate and have been known to go 8 to 10 years without detection. This makes quick action very important. If you suspect a carpenter ant or rodent infestation, call Fox Pest Control right away.

Our Connection to Manchester

Manchester is a bustling town. The huge Buckland Hills Mall is a great shopping center. Several of our Manchester

Keith, a new member of our Fox team as of September 2021, started his time here at Fox Pest Control off servicing Manchester, CT in addition to a few other cities. He was recently assigned a new route, but his time in Manchester allowed him to see various parts of the city and connect with it even more. As a lifelong Connecticut resident who was born in New Haven, Keith had been to Manchester before and already developed exciting memories in the city. His experience as a Manchester exterminator allowed him to revisit the places from his past. 

Wickham Park is a large 250 acre piece of land filled with breathtaking gardens, ponds, walking trails, and various other attractions. It’s exactly the type of place Keith would take his Canon to capture the natural beauty of his surroundings. As a photographer who takes a special interest in landscape photography in Connecticut, Wickham Park is exactly the kind of location he photographs. It’s also the place Keith participated in a 10k a few years ago. It’s important to Keith to stay active, so he jumped at the opportunity to run in such a picturesque location.

Keith also has special memories taking his two children to the Lutz Children’s Museum in Manchester. One thing that stands out in his mind about the museum is the groundhog that used to reside there. He laughed talking about how the groundhog made a special appearance each year outside his exhibit to tell the kids whether spring would make an appearance early or winter would continue. It’s a tradition both Keith and his kids loved. Thankfully, the groundhog still gets his time in the spotlight at the museum every Groundhog Day. 

Along with photography and running, Keith has a knack for video games. Luckily, so do his kids! He and his children often go to Dave and Buster’s at the Shoppes at Buckland Hills to eat delicious food and play games like Pac Man, Hungry Hippos, and plenty of other fun arcade games. For him, his time there is a way to unwind, relax, and enjoy meaningful time with his family. 

Here at Fox, we are grateful for the hard work Keith put into his job while providing homeowners with pest control services in  Manchester and the expertise he continues to provide in other cities. We’re equally proud to employ a technician who takes time to engage with his 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 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.
