Residents of Stamford experience a number of pest concerns.. Factors that contribute to pest health and the likelihood that they’ll cause problems include humidity, temperature, and the availability of food and water. Areas like High Ridge and North Stamford are replete with natural waterways, ponds, and small lakes, all of which contribute to possible pest management problems like rodents and wasps.
The most frequent pest control problem Fox encounters in Stamford is rodents. Mice and rats take shelter in residents’ homes and search for food. They gnaw through electrical wires, chew on walls, split open food containers, tear up fabric and wall insulation to make nests, and cause many other problems. The biggest risk of a rodent infestation is the diseases they can carry; these include babesiosis, hantavirus, leptospirosis, rat-bite fever, various hemorrhagic fevers, and the plague. Even during the coldest winter months, rats and mice can bring ticks and fleas into the home, which also spread disease.
Wasps are the single most dangerous pest problem Fox usually deals with. Even though many people might have some minor swelling for a few days after a sting, other people can have a more severe reaction with extreme swelling that lasts longer than a few days. Severe allergic reactions like anaphylaxis are life-threatening. Some wasp species make large nests in eaves and soffits or trees, and others make nests in abandoned rodent burrows. If your house is home to a wasp nest in the siding or the eaves, never try to seal off the holes to prevent the wasps from leaving. This could cause the wasps to tunnel into the walls and break through into the house, flying into kitchen areas, basements, or bedrooms.
Edwin Laboy, a Fox Pest Pro technician, lived in Stamford with his mom and brothers growing up. Places like Cove Island Park spur memories of walking along green trails and marveling at the natural beauty of Connecticut. He cherishes the memories he made with them there and specifically said Stamford will always have a special place in his heart.
For many of our Fox technicians, Stamford is an excellent place to stop for great food. Chicho’s Cocina is a favorite amongst the team. The menu consists of salads, nachos, bowls, and burritos. The barbacoa burrito is a technician’s favorite. There’s nothing better than good food after a long day of fighting pests.
