What Would You Ask a Pest Professional?

Maybe you've got a pest control problem in your house or business in the Albany area. Maybe you'd like to know what it's like for someone who gets rid of pests for a living.

We spoke with some of the pest professionals who work with Fox Pest Control and learned some interesting facts, heard amazing and unbelievable stories, and found out a few things that homeowners in the Albany area should know about pests.

Jeremiah has worked in the pest control industry for eight years and started working with Fox in May of 2019.

Interesting Pest Facts Homeowners Should Know

Jeremiah has treated homes for all kinds of pests, including wildlife pests. He told us some interesting facts and information about pests that some people don't know.

"A lot of things people don't know about bats is they've been overwintering and hibernating in attics and the walls," he said. "A lot of times, people think they have mice but it's actually bats crawling in the insulation and getting in between the sheetrock and insulation and nesting there."

Fox Pest Control in the Albany area offers premium wildlife management services. If you are afraid you might have bats or another pest, our pest pros and wildlife technicians offer free inspections to assess your situation, so call today for a free, no-obligation quote.

How a Pest Pro and Wildlife Technician Treats Pests

After the information about bats, we wanted to know more. We asked Jeremiah how he typically handles problems with bats and how to safely remove them.

"Bats are protected," he said, "so the only thing we can do is seal it up, make one-way 'chutes,' some people call them. When they're ready to leave, they can leave, but they can't get back in."

This method of exclusion work is safe for the bats and effectively treats a home without harming the creatures.

When asked what kinds of pests he enjoys treating the most, Jeremiah's face lit up.

"I like a lot of wildlife, catching them, trying to figure out how they work, they hunt, they act. It's good to study. I love the challenge."

Fox is a Family

We asked Jeremiah about his experience with other companies and whether he's enjoyed his time working with the Fox Family.

"I've worked for pest control companies in the past," he said, "and I've been in the industry for eight years. Fox has some of the nicest people I've ever seen. … When I first started out, I was helping out getting the initials started... I see the sales guys running around door to door and then, if they have a second, they run over and [say], "Need any help?" and they'll just help out. It's amazing."

When you call Fox, you aren't just hiring a company to help control pests. You're joining a family that cares about you, your peace of mind and ensuring that you and your family are safe.

So next time you think pest control, think Fox Pest Control. Because No Bugs is Simply Better.

Pestimonials

We had a wonderful experience with our technician. Weston was easy to talk to and explained everything well. Josh, who sold us the service, was very kind also. Not pushy at all. And very informative. Thank you. We look forward to working with you in the future.

My experience with Fox Pest Control has been the best experience I had with a pest control company. Technician, Harry, did a good job of going over the process thoroughly, ensure that I understood everything going on. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good, quality, fast, friendly, and affordable pest control services.
