Rats are large, disease carrying rodents, and you do not want them in your home. Particularly if you have pets or children, a rat infestation can be dangerous.

Fox Pest Control is here to fight your rodent problems for you. If you have a rat infestation, call today to receive prompt service and removal.

A small amount of swelling in the area near the bite for a few days doesn’t necessarily indicate Lyme disease. Many people experience a mild allergic reaction to a tick’s saliva, but the swelling should be gone within a few days. Nevertheless, if you have a tick infestation, let Fox Boston Area come to your house to with tick removal.
If the swollen spot grows and swelling persists for a week or more, this could be an early sign of Lyme disease. Early treatment of Lyme could prevent its long-term effects. Talk to your doctor if you suspect you see early signs of Lyme disease. In the meantime, call Fox for the best tick extermination treatment.
Transmission of Lyme disease from ticks can take 24-48 hours in most cases, so by checking for ticks regularly, you can avoid many of the problems ticks cause. If you do find you have an infestation, Fox will send a certified tick exterminator -- in many cases that same day.
If you are bitten by a tick and you’re worried about a potential infection, seek medical attention right away.

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.

Although I usually don't write a customer feedback e-mail like this one, I'm compelled to write one about your employee, Amury who came out to hour house for the first service. I've never received such a comprehensive, courteous, professional service like what Amury provided to our house this afternoon. He went above and beyond our expectations and provided an absolutely fantastic service with great explanations to make us at ease with our pest control issues especially with mice problems. He was so patient and attentive to our pest complaints and provided A+ service to us. We're so happy to have your employee, Amury, leave us with such a positive impression about your company and your service. Please give him a high employee rating for 2020.
