Boston Pest Control and Extermination

Pests can take many shapes and sizes. They include common black ants hunting for leftover food in your kitchen, termites feeding on your doors and windows, or bugs in your garden. Pests are inescapable.

No one wants the annoyance that insects and rodents can bring. While pests like termites and rodents can cause expensive damage to your property, other pests can carry dangerous diseases.

Whichever pest problem you’re confronting, we can address it. Fox Pest Control is the best Boston area pest extermination and treatment company, and we bring the most advanced solutions to solve your pest problems.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

Not sure if you have pest problems? Look out for these signs listed below. If you have either of them happening at your residence, you might be facing some serious pest problems.

  1. Active Signs – If you often see bugs crawling around your home, there could be more; a nest, or even a colony out there hidden in the nooks of your property. Stay attentive to rats or mice around your home or cockroaches and crickets that skitter away as soon the lights turn on. Even if you don’t see a nest, swarming hornets buzzing around your window mean it’s time to plan on getting rid of them.
  2. Passive Signs – Another common way to identify pest infestations at your residence is by the signs they leave behind. You might not always be able to spot active problems, particularly the pests that won’t leave their hiding spots until it’s dark. Common pest signs include feces from rodents, frass from termites chewing through the wood in your home, or holes left by carpenter bees.

What Boston Homeowners Need to Know About Pests

Helpful Pest Prevention Tips 

Seal exterior wall and foundation cracks, caulk any non-opening windows and doors, and replace broken window glass to prevent pests from entering your home.

Keep your floors, cabinets, and countertops clean and clear of any food.

Store unused or open food in airtight containers to avoid attracting insects or rodents.

Never leave leftover food or pet food outside or in your garage, basement, or attic.

Maintaining your lawn and trees can help eliminate hiding and nesting places for pests.

Don’t let garbage pile up. Dispose of it regularly and keep it in secure cans until picked up.

Boston Pest Control FAQ

Can I eliminate pests on my own?

It is nearly impossible to get rid of a specific variety of pests without professional extermination. These pests include ants, fleas, ticks, termites, and carpenter ants. Once these pests nest in your space, it becomes incredibly challenging to get rid of them without having a pest control professional on board.

Why is pest control service important?

Our certified professionals are formally trained and licensed to address all of your pest problems. Most of the pest problems around your home can only be effectively managed by professional exterminators. Pesticides available over the counter are only effective for a short period, or not effective at all if used in the wrong locations and amounts. If not treated properly, you’ll soon again find bugs and pests in or around your home. Our pest control techniques and products are specifically designed to help you get rid of these nasty little creatures long term.

Do pesticides damage the environment?

Pesticides can damage the environment if not handled carefully. Professional service providers like Fox Pest Control employ preventive measures to curb environmental damage.

Is it illegal to use pesticides?

It is not illegal to use pesticides approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) only if used under the manufacturer’s instructions.

Can Fox Pest Control’s products cause any harm to my children and pets?

Fox’s products are specifically designed to help homeowners get rid of pests without compromising their environmental safety. Our products are certified to be child and pet friendly.

What goes into Fox Pest Control’s products?

Our technicians combined modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with environmentally responsible products and treatments.

However, not every product is suited for every pest. It is essential to apply the right product, in the right spots, and in the correct amounts tailored to your specific pest issues. You may want to contact our customer service representatives to learn about the right product for your pest problem.

How long do Fox Pest Control’s products last?

Our products are guaranteed to keep pests at bay for up to three months following the product application. Pests that intrude on the treated areas during this time will be exterminated.

Do technicians need to access my home each time the product is applied?

Our standard home protection plan requires the technicians to treat the inside of your home to ensure all pests are rooted out. However, we won’t need to treat your space from inside again unless explicitly requested once the initial treatment is complete.

Do you offer no-cost treatments for pests that come back during the service period?

Yes, our home protection plan comes paired with a money-back guarantee. Please reach out to our customer representatives if you encounter pest problems during the service period. We will arrange another round of treatment for your space without any additional charges.

How often are your treatments scheduled?

Under our standard Home Protection Plan, we service once every three months or as needed.

Is it necessary to be at home for Fox Pest Control to service my house?

You don’t need to be at home to perform a standard pest control treatment for your home’s exterior, and it only requires our technicians to have access to your front and back yard.

However, if you want us to service the interior of your home, our technicians will have to enter your house. An adult must be present when the technicians perform an in-home treatment.

When is the right time to perform pest control services?

The best time to bring Fox Pest Control technicians on board is now. It is only a matter of time before pests will invade your space using wall voids, gutters, cracks in the doors and windows, and other tiny openings. Pest infestations can result in extensive home repairs and medical bills.

How can pest control service benefit me?

A timely pest control treatment will not only save you time and effort, it is a practical way to save money. Trying a DIY fix that lacks professional training will often lead to short-lived, incomplete results. A lack of professional products can leave pest infestations that damage the exterior and interior of your home which often leads to extensive, costly repair.

With professional Fox Pest Control treatments you will have peace of mind. Knowing that your home and family are protected from disease, damage, and the discomfort that pests bring is truly priceless.

Is cleaning helpful for preventing pests?

Cleaning your home roots pests from their hidden habitats and destroys their eggs and nests. Nevertheless, a clean home that offers pests shelter, food, and water will be as prone to pest infestation as a dirty one. 

Sanitation and cleaning practices can help eradicate insects once they’ve infested your house. Unfortunately, cleaning won’t stop pests from invading your home. And that is where you need professional extermination.

Which pests spread diseases?

Disease-transmitting pests commonly include rodents, mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. Some dangerous pest-borne illnesses include babesiosis, dengue, typhus, malaria, bubonic plague, and rickettsiosis.

Which pests are dangerous or damaging to yards and gardens?

Rodents can prove disastrous for yards if left untreated. They will eat up all the plants they can access in your yard. These pests bring along other nuisances like fleas and ticks. They can also spoil your landscaping and cause damage to your property.

Which pests are the most dangerous?

Wasps, bees, ticks, and rodents top the list of dangerous pests. You could get stung or bitten by one of these pests, and some are venomous and their sting or bite can lead to severe medical conditions.

Are Fox Pest Control treatments harmful to the environment?

At Fox Pest Control, all the pest control treatments are specially formulated, reviewed, and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We choose products that are environment-friendly and effective for pest extermination.

Are Fox Pest Control treatments organic?

Organic extermination treatments from Fox Pest Control are only available upon customer request. When speaking to our customer representatives, you can ask about or request organic treatment.

Which pest is the most difficult to eliminate?

Many indoor pests hibernate and hide quite effectively, reproduce quickly, and are not easily targeted. It is nearly impossible to get rid of some pests without thorough extermination and professional help. Cockroaches, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most challenging indoor pests to exterminate effectively.

How do pests come back every summer? How do they survive cold winters?

Winter is when many common pests, including mice, rats, and crickets, move into your home, seeking food and shelter for the winter and, in many cases, a place to reproduce. 

Many pests seek out and find the warm areas of your home including spaces in the walls, nooks near your furnace, or holes in the floor. In these cozy indoor areas, pests can enter diapause until the spring. While some pests will hibernate during the winter, many others lay eggs and reproduce during the cold months, and these eggs later hatch into swarms of pests and insects during the spring.

Why should I have my Boston home treated by Fox Pest Control during the winter?

Outdoor pests frequently move indoors during the winter. If a pest finds a comfortable space in your home to occupy during the winter, they will often try to return to the same place next winter (if they leave at all). Preventive treatments are necessary to get rid of them and prevent their return permanently. Our advanced winter solutions are carefully devised to target these pests and exterminate them before they see the spring.

Which pests are more active during the winters, and what issues do they cause?

During Boston winters, the most common pests that you’ll find scurrying across your house are mice and rats. These rodents often invite other pests, such as ticks and fleas, to your home. This is an important reason you should have your home pest-treated before or during winter.

Jonathan is very professional and easy to work with. He is patient to listen to me, walked through the property, answered my questions and explained everything he would do and the product he would use. very friendly and did a thorough, detailed job! He told me the house was covered and he would take care of it, which makes me not worry too much. He came with his co-worker Jeff today who is very professional as well. really appreciate their work and help!

Lin Zhu

Matt was professional. He was courteous when he entered my home and explained what he was going to do. He updated me on the results and went outside to complete the service.

Camille Chiuchiolo

I know Ty from outside of Fox and he is an awesome guy. Very knowledgeable in the pest control industry and has been at it for a long time. We call him the PEST WIZARD at my house. Even with his great experience, last year he went to an expensive three day nationwide bed bug class taught out of state. I have never met anybody more dedicated to being sure their workers are giving the best service possible. Highly recommend. Would refer anybody to them. 10/10 stars. Always been very responsive to our calls and concerns.
