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 Syracuse 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 Syracuse.
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.

During mosquito season, we suggest removing standing water from your yard.
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.
Our Fox Pest Pros can easily visit your home and apply monthly treatments throughout the spring and summer.
This will decrease the likelihood of mosquitoes laying eggs and inhabiting your yard.

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 Syracuse, 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 Syracuse 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 Syracuse 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.
I called around a year ago and tried to get a decent price to take care of the mouse problem that I had. The mice were under my house and in my walls. Other companies wanted a car payment each month. Fox pest control offered a very low price to come out each month. While on the phone they were polite and very professional and knowledgeable about the product and the habit of mice. Josh is my service man, he comes out monthly and services the mice boxes. On his first visit he looked at every nook and cranny in my house-very impressive. He set traps and explained how if I found a mouse i could throw it out or just call the company and he would come take care of it for me!! that is too cool. I have had them for a year now, I no longer have mice in my walls, the damage the mice have made has been repaired and no new damage has commenced. Not to mention included in my monthly service is spraying my house for bugs and spiders BIG PLUS. I personally LOVE the monthly service and Josh is fantastic. He is very professional and respectful. On days he knows I have to work, he is quiet as to not make the dog bark when he is going around the house. (I work overnight and sleep during the day) . They are awesome about rescheduling if needed. On top of all that fantastic service, I had carpenter bees burrowing in my wood on my porch and I called to see if they could help willing to pay extra and it was INCLUDED in my monthly service, they sent someone out the next day to handle the holes and checked in again on my normal scheduled visit!! I highly recommend this for anyone suffering from bugs or rodents. They do offer a mosquito service separate, but it was not in my budget this year. My monthly service helps all that I need. Another cool thing is all the products they use are animal friendly and not harmful to them at all!! SUPER GREAT!!! Josh is so great he even remembers where each and every trap is sets in the house! I have recommended them to all of my friends!!
