You might already know you have a pest problem. 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.
But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination technician in the Harrisburg area looks for during an inspection.
You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Harrisburg Area 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 “sawdust” resulting from termite infestation or carpenter ant activity.
To ensure effectiveness, it’s important to get help from an experienced pest extermination service in Harrisburg, PA.
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.
Pests come in a large variety. In Harrisburg Area, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
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.
Our goal at Fox Pest Control is to provide effective and efficient services that meet your specific needs.

We provide affordable pest control in Harrisburg Area, PA for the following bugs and rodents:
Nuisance wildlife problem? Visit our sister brand Critter Control Wildlife Service.
Rodents are a common pest that homeowners in Harrisburg deal with. Along the Susquehanna River, the buildings and homes in Harrisburg offer protection from the outside elements for mice and rats.
As winter temperatures set in, rodents seek shelter and food indoors. They will often squeeze through vents or exterior cracks of the home and nest in attics, garages, or inside walls. Mice and rats will scrounge for food and leave droppings as they go.
Don’t hesitate to call us if you notice any droppings or signs of an infestation, as rodents can spread dangerous diseases.
Residents in Harrisburg, PA may notice carpenter ants in or around their homes. These types of ants are around ½-inch in size, which makes them much larger than household ants. They are drawn to wooden materials and will tunnel through them to nest. They don’t eat the wood, but they can still do some serious damage. Keep an eye out for these pests around your house and act quickly.

There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Harrisburg Area pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience. The products available for purchase at your local hardware store just aren’t as effective as our integrated pest management techniques that safely use professional products and also take pest behavior into account.
Responsible companies like Fox Pest Control use products that are proven to get rid of pests while also being environmentally responsible.
Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.
Our environmentally friendly products are uniquely designed to get rid of pests while also allowing you to enjoy the comfort and safety of your home. Our products are designed to be child and pet-friendly.
We combine modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with a variety of environmentally responsible products. Since each situation — and each pest — is different, we make adjustments accordingly. Speak to our customer service representatives for a list of products used during your service call.
For up to three months after the application, any bugs, insects, or other pests that come across the area will be exterminated. You can rest easy knowing we are controlling the bugs so you can focus on what matters most to you.
During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.
Yes. Each Home Protection Plan (HPP) comes with our Fox Money-Back Guarantee. Call our customer service representatives at (717) 366-9627 to let us know if pests come back between your regular services, and we will come back to treat the pests again, free of charge.
For the standard Home Protection Plan, we plan to service the outside of your Harrisburg Area home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our exterminators in Harrisburg Area have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of if, but when the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Harrisburg Area pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.
All our products are formulated and proven by the EPA to be the environmentally responsible choice for effective pest control.
Fox offers organic exterminator treatment products upon customer request. Please speak with our customer service representatives for further details.
There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Harrisburg Area home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
Several members of the Fox team grew up or currently live in Harrisburg. Pest Pro Jason went to John Harris High School, and his mom is from the area. His favorite memory is watching the fireworks along the Susquehanna River on the fourth of July.
Fox technician Eli’s family is also from Harrisburg. He attended Shimmel Elementary School, which is now a library. He and his family always go to Ted’s Bar & Grill, and they try to go every Thursday. It’s been rated the one of the best restaurants in Harrisburg. Eli and his girlfriend also order Japanese food from Kondu every Friday night as part of a tradition. They always order shrimp and steak teppanyaki and highly recommend it to anyone in the area.
One of Pest Pro Cawayne’s favorite things to do is to sing karaoke at Zembie’s Sports Tavern on Fridays or Saturdays. “I enjoy getting on stage and singing. On top of that, the food and drinks are delicious, and I recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place for a date or just a good time to hang out,”Cawayne said.
Fox is currently sponsoring the Harrisburg Heat, the pro indoor soccer team in the area. They play from November to March with home games at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg. We are also sponsors of the Healthy Kids Running Series in Harrisburg. This is a program that encourages kids to get active and make friends by organizing running events. We are happy to support local organizations in our community.
I am constantly impressed with how Fox runs their business. They are masters at communication, both via email and personally - via phone and in person. They are proactive about reaching out before any services and always follow up after services. This is above and beyond the excellent services they provide with pest control.
We just signed up with Fox Pest Control and are so glad we did. Our tech, Rich, was on time & professional. He was very knowledgeable and took his time to make sure the job was done right. We are looking forward to continued service with Fox!
To ensure our customer's safety, we insist on a thorough screening process for all Fox Pest Control Technicians. They also complete extensive training in the classroom and on the job with an experienced mentor before servicing alone.
