Most of the Queensbury area is heavily wooded, which creates the perfect habitat for fleas and ticks. Fleas are very tiny and are often hard to see if you’re not looking for them. They’re a darker color and usually don’t grow longer than 3mm. If your dogs or cats seem unusually itchy or are behaving weirdly, you may have a tick problem. Unfortunately, these small insects can infest homes just as easily as pets. Ticks are similar to fleas in that they also suck the blood of their hosts. However, unlike fleas, ticks are much more visible. As they fill with blood, their dark bodies expand into a round ball. Neither ticks or fleas are fun to deal with. If you suspect a flea or tick problem, call the professionals right away. Rodents are another common pest in the area. They often sneak through cracks or vents in your home to get protection from the outside elements. They will travel throughout your home to find food, leaving droppings as they go. It’s important to act fast when you notice rodent droppings as mice and rats can spread diseases. Call Fox Pest Control today if you have a rodent infestation.
The Adirondack Balloon festival is a favorite among the Albany Fox team. Our Albany Branch Manager Kevin Wells, whose daughter graduated from SUNY Adirondack, thinks Queensbury is a great place to grow up, thanks in part to the beautiful balloon festival. “We’re so lucky to have the hot air balloon festival there each year in the fall and to see the sky full of color.”
The entire Fox Pest Control team also oftens visits Martha’s Dandee Creme, a local ice cream shop. Brent, the owner of Fox Pest Control – Albany, likes to take his family and the whole Fox team there to sample their delicious shakes. However, only one Fox technician has been able to finish the “Boston Shake,” a large chocolate shake with an ice cream sundae on top of it. “Let’s just say it wasn’t an experience I want to repeat. I got pretty sick afterward,” Fox technician Jeremiah said.
