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. Call us today if you notice any signs of the insect.
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 .

Mice and rats are the 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. If you suspect a rodent infestation, call Fox Pest Control immediately.
