Lancaster deals with a unique and invasive pest called the spotted lanternfly. Originally from Asia, it was first found in Pennsylvania in 2014 and is slowly spreading throughout the state.
It eats the sap of willow, birch, maple, and black walnut trees, as well as grapevines. Ultimately, it causes a lot of damage to local plant life. Fox Pest Control offers a service to remove the spotted lanternflies from homeowners’ yards.

Because its humidity levels and precipitation are slightly higher than national averages, Lancaster’s climate and geography affect pest pressures for residents in the area. Large, regional landmarks such as large golf courses in and near Lancaster, the Conestoga Woods, the Conestoga River, Lancaster County Central Park, and other places.
Some of the greatest pest pressures for Lancaster residents include rodents. Mice and rats are one of the most common pest problems throughout Lancaster.
Residents live very close together in many areas, which is perfect for mice and rats during the harshest months of the year. Rats can squeeze themselves through a gap or crack the diameter of a quarter, while mice can fit through entry points the size of a dime.
The first sign of mice or rats is usually their feces, often left in hidden, out-of-the-way places; these can include the underside or back of drawers, the back corners of cabinets or pantries, in empty basements, or attic spaces.
Unfortunately, they can cause significant health problems, such as rat-bite fever, hantavirus, leptospirosis, lymphocytic choriomeningitis, tularemia, various hemorrhagic fevers, salmonella, and even the plague.

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 Lancaster 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 the 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 (contact us here) 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) 674-3119 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 Lancaster home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our technicians 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 a 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 Lancaster 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 Lancaster home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
We find technicians extremely polite and knowledgeable. Last year had a terrible swarm of ground bees nest on our deck. Fox came and eradicated the issue promptly and did not let them get in the house. They also got rid of ants. On a personal note, we have a small dog. Every single technician that comes takes a moment to pet him. The kindness that shows makes them obviously not only stellar at what they do but caring in their dealing and observant with customers. A great company with skillfully trained folks Recommended.
Our property has and is serviced by Fox. They've proven to be reliable, knowledgeable and responsive to our needs. I do have to commend John, one of your staff for providing us with thorough service and a bank of knowledge which made me so much more confident in the service.
