Greenwich is an extremely beautiful area, ideal for golf courses, parks, and forest preserves. There are numerous waterways, like Putnam Lake, Rockwood Lake Converse Lake, and others. As in many other places throughout Connecticut, these beautiful characteristics contribute to the pest pressures that residents throughout Greenwich have to contend with, including mosquitoes and rodents.
Greenwich is replete with waterways that can contribute to the population of mosquitoes throughout the city. Anywhere with standing water is a prime location for many types of mosquitoes. Mosquito bites may only raise a bump on the skin for a while, but these pests can also carry Zika Virus, Chikungunya virus, dengue fever, malaria, and West Nile virus, to name a few.
During the winter, rodents like mice and rats are the most common and most pervasive pest problem throughout all of Connecticut. Mice and rats wiggle their way through tiny gaps in homes or businesses (like restaurants) and hide in kitchens, basements, attics, and anywhere with food and water nearby. They chew up carpeting, wooden structures, walls, and even electrical wiring. They can break into food storage and contaminate everything they come into contact with. T Not only do they spread diseases like hantavirus, rat-bite fever, leptospirosis, and the plague, but they can also spread ticks and fleas through the home or building, even during the winter. If you suspect an infestation, simply call Fox Pest Control to take care of the problem.
Pest Pro Austin Forlenzo was raised in Greenwich. While he doesn’t live in the area anymore, he cherishes the time he spent there. His favorite memory from the Greenwich area is going to Todd’s Point and enjoying the beach with friends and family. Whether driving through or in need of a quick return to his roots, Austin never passes up an opportunity to stop in Greenwich.
Many of our Fox Pest Pros enjoy going to Greenwich’s famous Audubon Center with their children. The center is an environmental education society that protects nature and wildlife from the population.
