Because of the cold Connecticut winters, the single most widespread pest problem throughout the state, including Manchester, is rodents. Rodents are attracted to high-population areas. Mice and rats enter homes by wiggling through tiny cracks, crevices, and holes, gaps between utility pipes and the walls, and other chinks in the home’s armor. Once they have access, they search for hiding places, food, water, and good nesting material. They’ll eat anything from food storage or peanut butter to pet food and bird seed. Because their teeth never stop growing, they also have a strong instinct to chew and gnaw on anything and everything available. Unfortunately, both mice and rats tend to carry various diseases like hantavirus, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, hemorrhagic fevers, tularemia, salmonella, and even the plague.
One of the most pervasive pest problems throughout Connecticut and the United States is ants. Ant species that commonly invade homes include pharaoh ants, pavement ants, odorous house ants, and carpenter ants. Of all these types, carpenter ants are the most destructive. Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve through almost any wood. Although carpenter ant colonies only have one queen, they are capable of making satellite colonies in order to expand territory. However, these are extremely difficult to eradicate and have been known to go 8 to 10 years without detection. This makes quick action very important. If you suspect a carpenter ant or rodent infestation, call Fox Pest Control right away.

Keith, a new member of our Fox team as of September 2021, started his time here at Fox Pest Control off servicing Manchester, CT in addition to a few other cities. He was recently assigned a new route, but his time in Manchester allowed him to see various parts of the city and connect with it even more. As a lifelong Connecticut resident who was born in New Haven, Keith had been to Manchester before and already developed exciting memories in the city. His experience as a Manchester exterminator allowed him to revisit the places from his past.
Wickham Park is a large 250 acre piece of land filled with breathtaking gardens, ponds, walking trails, and various other attractions. It’s exactly the type of place Keith would take his Canon to capture the natural beauty of his surroundings. As a photographer who takes a special interest in landscape photography in Connecticut, Wickham Park is exactly the kind of location he photographs. It’s also the place Keith participated in a 10k a few years ago. It’s important to Keith to stay active, so he jumped at the opportunity to run in such a picturesque location.
Keith also has special memories taking his two children to the Lutz Children’s Museum in Manchester. One thing that stands out in his mind about the museum is the groundhog that used to reside there. He laughed talking about how the groundhog made a special appearance each year outside his exhibit to tell the kids whether spring would make an appearance early or winter would continue. It’s a tradition both Keith and his kids loved. Thankfully, the groundhog still gets his time in the spotlight at the museum every Groundhog Day.
Along with photography and running, Keith has a knack for video games. Luckily, so do his kids! He and his children often go to Dave and Buster’s at the Shoppes at Buckland Hills to eat delicious food and play games like Pac Man, Hungry Hippos, and plenty of other fun arcade games. For him, his time there is a way to unwind, relax, and enjoy meaningful time with his family.
Here at Fox, we are grateful for the hard work Keith put into his job while providing homeowners with pest control services in Manchester and the expertise he continues to provide in other cities. We’re equally proud to employ a technician who takes time to engage with his community!
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 Connecticut. 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 Connecticut, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Connecticut pest might be bothering you.
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 Connecticut.
There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Connecticut pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience. The products available for purchase at your local hardware store just aren’t as effective as our integrated pest management techniques that safely use professional products and also take pest behavior into account.
Responsible companies like Fox Pest Control use products that are proven to get rid of pests while also being environmentally responsible.
Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.
Our environmentally friendly products are uniquely designed to get rid of the pests while also allowing you to enjoy the comfort and safety of your home. Our products are designed to be child and pet friendly.
We combine modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with a variety of environmentally responsible products. Since each situation — and each pest — is different, we make adjustments accordingly. Speak to our customer service representatives for a list of products used during your service call.
For up to three months after the application, any bugs, insects, or other pests that come across the area will be exterminated. You can rest easy knowing we are controlling the bugs so you can focus on what matters most to you.
During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.
Yes. Each Home Protection Plan (HPP) comes with our Fox Money-Back Guarantee. Call our customer service representatives to let us know if pests come back between your regular services, and we will come back to treat the pests again, free of charge.
For the standard Home Protection Plan, we plan to service the outside of your Connecticut home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our technicians have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request a treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Connecticut pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.
Many people in Connecticut are stung by insects like wasps every year. Some people are allergic to these stings. Because their stinger isn’t barbed, wasps, bumblebees, and some carpenter bees are capable of stinging multiple times.
All our products are formulated and proven by the EPA to be the environmentally responsible choice for effective pest control.
Fox offers organic exterminator treatment products upon customer request. Please speak with our customer service representatives for further details.
There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Connecticut home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
