Typical Pharr Pest Control Problems

In Pharr, there is no shortage of amenities and interesting things to see and do. From Smitty’s Jukebox Museum to playing TopGolf with friends and family, residents and tourists are sure to be entertained. There are also some unwanted guests that seem to love living in Pharr as well: rats. 

Rats are common pests that seem to be attracted to homes in the Pharr area. There are two types of rats that residents should keep an eye out for. First is the Norway Rat. These rats are large rodents that typically live outside and burrow themselves in the ground. However, they will move indoors when it begins to get colder or if they are unable to find a food source. They will follow their burrowing instincts and burrow themselves underground. This could be in a basement, crawl space, or beneath your foundation, specifically near a water source. 

The second rat to look for is the roof rat. These rats are natural climbers and like to build their nests in higher locations such as attics or in the eaves of homes. Both types of rats can be carriers of disease, posing a serious threat to humans if bitten. Make a mental note to inspect your home for rat droppings, gnaw marks on wood, or sightings of rats, and make sure you call your local Fox technicians if you think you have a rat problem.

Fox Pest Control’s Pest Exterminator Service

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 McAllen. 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 McAllen, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever McAllen pest might be bothering you.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

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 McAllen. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in McAllen is simply by observing it. It could be a mouse in your house, cockroaches skittering when you turn on the lights, or a swarm of hornets around a nest. In any case, it’s time to get rid of pests!
  • Signs of activity. Pests are adept at hiding from us, so you won’t always spot them. Instead, you might notice signs of their presence such as rodent droppings or small piles of “saw dust”  resulting from termite or carpenter ant activity.

What You Need to Know About Pests

  • Pests come in a large variety. In McAllen, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • Pests find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping.  It’s important to get help from a professional exterminator because, depending on the species, they may create nests, contaminate food and water in your kitchen and bathroom, or cause damage to the inside of walls, electrical wiring, or other parts of the house.
  • While some pests can cause home damage, many carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. You must control mosquitoes and rodents as they are the most notorious for this.
  • Spiders and wasps are famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

Helpful McAllen Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
  • Store all food in airtight containers. 
  • Never leave food (including pet food) outside.
  • Clear all debris, tools, garbage.

How To Get Rid Of Ants | Fox Pest Control

Is a trail of ants marching across your countertop,
or setting up camp in your cupboard?

Don't worry — we've got a solution!

Ants are masters of sneaking into your home through unsealed gaps in your cement, brick or siding.

They can also slip in through open gaps around windows or door frames.

If you've got food or moisture available, they'll come crawling.

Most ants are harmless.

But some, like fire ants, bite and sting.

Other types of ants build huge mounds that can tear up your lawn.

Carpenter ants can burrow into your wood,
causing major damage to window and door frames, or even the structure of your home.

If you see ants, call us.

We'll come that same day to solve your pest problem!

Our licensed, certified technicians know how to get the job done right.

Your Fox Pest Pro will thoroughly inspect your home,
and then create a customized plan to get rid of those pesky ants for good.

After the treatment, we'll send you a detailed report of what we did,
along with helpful suggestions for how to keep the ants outside where they belong.

We follow up with regular inspections,
carefully checking for any potential trouble spots.

If ants return, simply give us a call,
we'll come back for free!

Our service is 100% guaranteed.
