Typical Pittsford Pest Control Problems

Pittsford is  a suburb of Rochester. It draws families in with its good school system and peaceful ambience. The Erie canal runs through the area, providing wonderful bike and walking trails. Beautiful parks, ranging from outdoor havens like Schoen Place to kids playgrounds like King’s Bend Park, provide even more recreation for Pittsford residents. However, rodents and ants also love Pittsford. Rodents are especially drawn to standing water, and the Canal along with bodies of water like the East Branch Allen Creek, give them plenty of sustenance. In the winter months, mice and rats are drawn indoors for shelter. It’s around this time that residents should be on the lookout for unwelcome, scuttling roommates. Mice can sneak inside through a hole as small as a dime, and rats can get in through one the size of a quarter. Once inside, they chew insulation, eat through food, and claw their way through clothes. In short, a rodent problem is no walk in the park.

Ants can also pose a major issue for Pittsford residents. Common ants like pavement ants can get inside through small cracks and crevices. Luckily, these ants are more of a nuisance than anything. However, carpenter ants are a different story. They chew through wood with their strong mandibles, creating structural damage. They’ve even been known to live inside walls for up to eight years. Common signs include scratching sounds coming from within the walls and piles of loose wood shavings. If you think you have a carpenter ant or mice infestation, call Fox Pest Control immediately. We can help.

Our Connection to Pittsford

Rochester’s Branch Manager, Tony Della Penna, spent a lot of his younger years around the Pittsford area. He remembers getting together with family and friends in Bushnell’s Basin and riding bikes together around town. They would make biking pit stops at Pontillos for pizza. There’s still nothing better to Tony than a slice from Pontillos. After pizza, everyone would ride their bikes to Abbotts for ice cream. Tony remembers carrying his bike down into the canalway so he wouldn’t need to ride alongside 55 miles per hour traffic. To this day, Tony still visits these places with his boys, Elijah and Anthony.

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

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Rochester 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 Rochester, 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 Rochester 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.
