Summer comes each year with the promise of warm weather, sunshine, fun, and as always, mosquitoes. These pests can take over your yard and multiply quickly. They lay 100 eggs at a time, oftentimes in standing water. When biting, mosquitoes can drink up to 3 times their body weight in blood. Their primary food source is glucose, which is found in high levels in our blood. Not only do these bites hurt, they can be quite harmful. Because they carry diseases, mosquitoes are considered the world’s deadliest animals. Through Malaria, Zika and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year. Fox Pest Control knows how to control your Rochester mosquito problem and reduce them quickly.
You might already know for sure that you have a mosquito problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mosquito infestation in Rochester.
One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.
Even before they’re seen, mosquitoes can bite and fly away before you know what happened. A bite is often itchy and may raise a small red bump on the skin.

Also covering up in long-sleeved shirts and pants, especially when going outside after dusk.
Using repellent with DEET is also important to avoid bites.

Because No Bugs is Simply Better.
Of the more than 3,500 species, only a couple hundred will actually bite humans … and then it’s only the females. Despite that, there are plenty of female mosquitoes around in Rochester, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.
Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water.
Mosquitoes love cool, moist environments … and they hate the heat. The best to be outside while also avoiding mosquitoes is in the heat of the day. If you do see mosquitoes, they will most likely be in bushes or flower beds.(Or you could call Fox Pest Control in Rochester to help you reduce the mosquito population around your home.)
When a female mosquito bites you, it injects an anticoagulant within its saliva that, while helping the blood flow, also creates an allergic response in most humans.
Yes they can be. Even in Rochester mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:
Mosquitoes are primarily a prey insect, serving as a food source for many bats and birds. In addition, mosquitoes are pollinators. While they don't pollinate on the same level as bees, they feed on flower nectar to get glucose, and transfer this from flower to flower.
UPDATE: The yellow jacket nest is gone however they may have moved to a different spot at the front of the house above the window. Called Fox and they sent Sarah out. She was awesome! Great communication and very friendly. Sprayed the problem area and all around it and I will call back in 5 days if any further issue. We ran into an issue with yellow jackets this year. There were a few nests and Chris came out and was fantastic! He got rid of the nests and sprayed the perimeter of the house. I believe Jason was the gentleman who scheduled us and he was great as well. We just had our first treatment and so far so good. Everyone has been extremely friendly.
Chris came out and immediately got to work. He saw a chipmunk run into the a while near the house and was determined to find it. He was very informative about the products he was using, the plan for treatment, and what to expect from the service. We are very happy with our choice to go with Fox Pest Control for our home's needs. Also Austin was our point of contact who sold us on the service. He was also very friendly and informative. Thank you To everyone at Fox.

We were thrilled with the service Chris provided from Fox Pest Control. He explained everything thoroughly and was very customer friendly.
I have again had a positive experience. Will was very professional and personable. It rained the day of the appointment and he came back the very next day to apply product to the outside property. He listened and addressed in real time as I told him the issues with the ants and I would not mind at all if he came back on my next appointment.
Sarah and Elise were very courteous and polite. They addressed my immediate concerns promptly and thoroughly and made sure there were no other concerns before they left. Would recommend them for future pest control needs.
