Milford has always been full of forests, natural brooks, streams, small lakes, and ponds. Between roads and surrounding brooks and streams, rich forest has always been one of the beautifying aspects of Connecticut, including parks and preserves like the Charles E. Wheeler Wildlife Management Area at the mouth of the Housatonic River next to Neils Island, Silver Sand State Park, and Welchs Point Park.In spite of their beauty and the immeasurable value these sites offer, they also harbor pests of all kinds. Mice, rats, and wasps are among the most common pests that residents deal with.
During the winter months, mice and rats search for shelter by wiggling their way through tiny gaps in residential and commercial buildings; these include homes, restaurants, warehouses, and food storage facilities. Once inside, they hide during the day and wreak havoc at night, chewing on food containers, electrical wires, and even metal or hard plastic. However, the most dangerous things about these rodents are the diseases they can carry, some of these including leptospirosis, babesiosis, various hemorrhagic fevers, rat-bite fever, hantavirus, and even the plague.
Wasps are another dangerous problem residents encounter in Connecticut. They create nests in eaves, soffits, trees, under porches, or even in the ground. For some, a sting raises a painful, swollen welt that naturally dissipates. For others, it could spur a life-threatening reaction. Serious reactions to a single wasp sting could include irregular swelling, hives, discoloration of the skin, nausea or vomiting, wheezing, or difficulty breathing. For this reason, it’s important to contact professionals right away. Call Fox Pest Control if you see signs of rodents or wasps on your property.
Fox Pest Pro Laura J. Williams remembers attending the Oyster Festival with her family every year while growing up; it occurred every Sunday. One year, an American Idol runner up took the stage as a headliner and, after the set, Laura had the chance to meet and take photos with her. It was a memory she’ll never forget!
Sean Garrity, another Fox Pest Pro, happened to meet the love of his life in Milford. They met at the firehouse art gallery during a show, and they’ve been together ever since. Nowadays, they enjoy taking walks around town and enjoying the beach and its many attractions, especially the restaurants, ice cream shops, and bars.
Edwin, a standout technician at Fox Pest Control, is a regular Milford exterminator. Edwin was born in Brooklyn, New York and practically lived everywhere around NYC except for Queens. He later moved to Connecticut with his mom and brothers, a much quieter place than the big cities of New York, where he graduated from Branford High School and met his beautiful fiance.
Edwin has worked for Fox for a little over a year-and-a-half, and he enjoys connecting with the upbeat residents of Milford. “Whenever I go to a house in Milford, I’m always talking to a customer for an extended period of time, before the service and after,” he said. He frequently takes time to do the little things that brighten up customers’ days. After one service, Edwin and a customer’s son played a friendly game of basketball. Edwin told the boy he would give him five dollars if he won. Though Edwin is a good ball player, he let the boy win simply so he could give him the five dollars and see the look of accomplishment on his face. That’s a pretty fun way to end a service!
While in the area, Edwin often travels down Boston Post Road. Though he believes most of Milford has a quaint, “old school” feel, he says Boston Post Road has the most activity. Sometimes, Edwin stops for a bite to eat at Archie Moore’s Bar & Restaurant off Factory Lane, west of Milford Harbor. The restaurant serves classic American food that Edwin says is absolutely delicious.
Edwin also found a couple gems in Milford that allow him to enjoy his hobbies in his time off. While he shops at multiple shops in the Connecticut Post Mall on busy Boston Post Road, he frequents the sports stores for baseball cards. As an avid baseball card collector and sports fan, the Connecticut Post Mall is a dream for Edwin! When he’s not spending time with his fiance, hanging out with buddies from the Fox team, working on his standup comedy (another passion of his), or playing ball with his brothers, Edwin likes spending a relaxing day at Gulf Beach. According to Edwin, Gulf Beach adds to Milford’s beautiful scenery and makes for an incredible place to spend a day by the water.
Going beyond our team’s personal ties to the community, Fox Pest Control as a whole strives to be as involved in the community as possible. We’re proud members of the Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce, which connects us with the many other vibrant businesses in this beautiful town. Similarly, we’re also part of The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce community. While chambers help us build relationships with businesses in the community, sponsorships enable us to actively support specific clubs and organizations. We first began sponsoring New Milford Bulls Football and Cheerleading in July 2021 and plan to continue supporting them going forward. Youth involvement in the community through sports is a beneficial way for youth to involve themselves in wholesome and character-building activities, and that bolsters our community now and in the future.
Here at Fox, we’re so grateful for the care Edwin puts into his work in Milford to make Milford pest control reliable and trustworthy. We’re also thankful to the Milford Regional Chamber of Commerce, The Greater New Milford Chamber of Commerce, and New Milford Bulls Football and Cheerleading for allowing us to see our community for what it is – the very best!
