Schenectady, NY residents may notice an increase in mice and rats especially during colder months. The rodents will enter homes through small outside cracks or vents at any level of the house. They seek warmth and safety from the cold, outside elements.
Rodents create nests out of any available paper or fabric materials and often settle in attics, in garages, or inside walls. The animals will travel throughout the house to find food, leaving feces droppings as they go. Take note of any droppings and call Fox Pest Control immediately. Mice and rats can spread harmful diseases, especially if they come into contact with your food.
Ants and cockroaches may also be prevalent if food and water sources are present in your home. They are drawn to moisture, often settling in bathrooms, laundry rooms, or kitchens. One way to prevent these pests from invading your home is to keep things tidy and clean up any crumbs or clutter, also being sure to repair any water leaks.
Kevin Wells, our Albany branch manager, has ties with Proctor’s Theater in Schenectady. “Proctor’s theater has been a favorite of ours,” he said. His child’s graduation from Scotia Glenville High School was held in the theater, and he remembers seeing Annie there with his daughter. “Going there has definitely become a summer tradition.” Nicole, a member of Fox’s marketing team, also visited the historic Proctor’s Theater when she saw Neil deGrasse Tyson. Our technician Anthony also has memories in Schenectady, as it runs deep in his family’s roots. His dad’s side of the family has lived there for over 85 years! That’s 85 years of family recipes, stories, and nostalgia thanks to Schenectady.
