Although it’s a very small borough, Jonestown still carries with it a few features that affect pest pressures in the area. Swatara Creek and Little Swatara Creek, the fields and forests around the creeks and between houses, and the fact that the residents are relatively close together all contribute to the area’s pest pressure. Mosquitoes and wasps are two of the most common pest pressures that the people of Jonestown will encounter.
Mosquitoes like to live in places with plenty of water. They usually lay their eggs in standing or still water. That includes places along both the Swatara Creek and Little Swatara Creek where tree branches dip into the water and slow it down. Only female mosquitoes suck blood, and they can travel far to find someone to bite. Most of the time, a mosquito bite raises a small welt on the skin. However, mosquitoes can also carry diseases, including Zika virus, various kinds of encephalitis, yellow fever, Chikungunya virus, West Nile virus, dengue fever, and malaria. However, mosquitoes aren’t the only troublesome flying pests in Jonestown.
Wasps are some of the most dangerous pests Fox helps homeowners eradicate. They can nest anywhere, from underneath siding to the corner of the eaves, in a tree, or even underground. While wasps aren’t deliberately trying to attack people, they are very aggressive and territorial. If they believe their space is being invaded, they will fight back.. Even though most people have a fairly mild reaction to a wasp sting, others can experience bad reactions like anaphylaxis. Because of this, it’s important to contact Fox Pest Control immediately if you suspect an infestation.
In Jonestown, some members of the Fox team enjoy going to the Veg Out farmers market. It’s a place for them to get fresh produce such as corn, peppers, tomatoes, carrots, and more. It gives team members an opportunity to purchase from a local business and help farmers. Lion’s Lake Park is also a great place members of the team visit. As a smaller park, it offers a place to picnic, kayak, walk, and fish. Fox team members enjoy going there with their families or friends for a day in the sun. Like our team, Fox Pest Control is proud to be involved with the communities we serve. This is why we are a member of the PA Chamber of Business and Industry, doing what we can to continue improving beautiful Lebanon County.
