Typical Hanover Pest Control Problems

Residents in Hanover, PA may deal with mice or rats as rodents are a common pest in the area. Rodents are drawn to homes for protection and warmth, and they look for food that’s easily accessible. They will often nest in out-of-the-way areas like attics, garages, or between walls. Their nests can be made from fabric scraps, dryer lint, insulation, newspaper, or magazines. The rodents will wander the house at night looking for food. This makes a pantry or kitchen a prime spot. Unfortunately, mice or rats can spread diseases to humans when they come into contact with food. If you think you are dealing with a rodent problem, give Fox Pest control a call today.

Another common pest in Hannover is ants. House ants enter a house in search of food or safety from the weather outside. They can fit through tiny cracks along window sills and door frames. However, they can cause big problems for homeowners. Carpenter ants are common in the area as well. Carpenter ants look for wood to tunnel through. This can affect fences, porches,wooden beams, and the overall structural integrity of your home.

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 Lancaster. 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 Lancaster, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Lancaster 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 Lancaster. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Lancaster 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 Lancaster, 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 Lancaster Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.

Is a trail of ants marching across your countertop,
or setting up camp in your cupboard?

Don't worry — we've got a solution!

Ants are masters of sneaking into your home through unsealed gaps in your cement, brick or siding.

They can also slip in through open gaps around windows or door frames.

If you've got food or moisture available, they'll come crawling.

Most ants are harmless.

But some, like fire ants, bite and sting.

Other types of ants build huge mounds that can tear up your lawn.

Carpenter ants can burrow into your wood,
causing major damage to window and door frames, or even the structure of your home.

If you see ants, call us.

We'll come that same day to solve your pest problem!

Our licensed, certified technicians know how to get the job done right.

Your Fox Pest Pro will thoroughly inspect your home,
