Typical Lancaster Pest Control Problems

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 . Some of the greatest pest pressures for Lancaster residents include rodents. 

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.

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.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
  • Store all food in airtight containers. 
  • Never leave food (including pet food) outside.
  • Clear all debris, tools, garbage.
