Summer comes each year with the promise of warm weather, sunshine, fun, and as always, mosquitoes. These pests can take over your yard and multiply quickly. They lay 100 eggs at a time, oftentimes in standing water. When biting, mosquitoes can drink up to 3 times their body weight in blood. Their primary food source is glucose, which is found in high levels in our blood. Not only do these bites hurt, they can be quite harmful. Because they carry diseases, mosquitoes are considered the world’s deadliest animals. Through Malaria, Zika and West Nile Virus, mosquitoes are responsible for nearly 1 million deaths per year. Fox Pest Control knows how to control your Albany mosquito problem and exterminate them quickly.
You might already know for sure that you have a mosquito problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs of a mosquito infestation in Albany.
One of the signs of a mosquito infestation is to see them flying around.
Even before they’re seen, mosquitoes can bite and fly away before you know what happened. A bite is often itchy and may raise a small red bump on the skin.

Of the more than 3,500 species, only a couple hundred will actually bite humans … and then it’s only the females. Despite that, there are plenty of female mosquitoes around in Albany, so don’t worry, you’ll need lots of help with mosquito control.
Mosquitoes love very shallow water or even damp soil for laying eggs. Try to keep your property free of standing water, mosquitoes can lay their eggs in a bottle cap of water.
Mosquitoes love cool, moist environments … and they hate the heat. The best to be outside while also avoiding mosquitoes is in the heat of the day. If you do see mosquitoes, they will most likely be in bushes or flower beds.(Or you could call Fox Pest Control in Albany to help you get rid of mosquitoes.)
When a female mosquito bites you, it injects an anticoagulant within its saliva that, while helping the blood flow, also creates an allergic response in most humans.
Yes they can be. Even in Albany mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases, including:
Mosquitoes are primarily a prey insect, serving as a food source for many bats and birds. In addition, mosquitoes are pollinators. While they don't pollinate on the same level as bees, they feed on flower nectar to get glucose, and transfer this from flower to flower.

When i signed up for your service, I was nervous that I was going to be overpaying for something I could do myself. However, I've been impressed with the service as your company is very receptive to the calls i make requesting an additional spray or inspection every now and then due to the weather/season change. Additionally, the same serviceman comes to my house each time and it's nice to have a personal connection with him! He knows how things are changing outdoors around my house (i.e. i had a huge tree removed and that changed the types of bugs/pests i've had) and he knows that my dog is friendly regardless of his size since he has large dogs of his own. I always take the dog inside so there's no risk, but it's still a nice, friendly connection :) Additionally the amount i pay is nice to know i dont have to do any work and I can call anytime if i dont feel like a certain treatment was effective, etc. Easy to schedule, reschedule, or contact a personal representative. Additionally, they provide a lot of notification ahead of time when they auto schedule my services. Very little work required on my part! I've had ZERO bug issues since hiring them, when i used to have to spray my house every week for the first month or two of spring and fall!
David has serviced my home more than once and he is always on time, very responsive and informative and very thorough. I appreciate his work and his pleasant demeanor. He clearly takes pride in good work and provides excellent customer service. Thank you
Removed bird nest from gutters and roof. From time I called until time work was done was less than a week. Good company.

Josh and Luke did a great job of explaining what services to expect and all of the costs involved. Yes, they are young, but they were through, knowledgeable, and extremely professional. The treatment took into account our needs and concerns for animals. A young hard working group!
