The best way to get rid of ants permanently is with professional Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas pest control and ant extermination because we have all the right tools and knowledge. While you wait for the professionals to come, vacuum frequently for anything ants can use as food, like fallen crumbs, grains of sugar, and hair follicles or skin particles.
You must control ants because they can create satellite nests that collect food for the main nest. The queen will remain safe and untouched in a separate nest. If the satellite nest is destroyed, the queen could simply create another one in the same place. Fox Pest Control has the knowledge and tools necessary to effectively provide ant control in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas.
Carpenter ants use their massive jaws to carve tunnels in wood. Although they don’t eat the wood as termites do, if you don’t get help with carpenter ant treatment they can cause serious damage to your home if left untreated.
Ants that sting. Some ants have a painful sting, almost like a wasp. You need to control fire ants, harvester ants, and oak ants - they are among those stinging ants that live in the United States.
Carpenter ants. You must exterminate carpenter ants because they can carve tunnels and galleries through virtually any kind of wood, causing major structural damage.
Some ants, like the aggressive red imported fire ants, deliver a painful sting. This sting has often been compared to a wasp or bee sting and can be a serious problem for those with an allergy to insect stings.
The main difference is the size. While most ants in Susquehanna Valley & Surrounding Areas are about ⅛ inch long, carpenter ant workers are closer to ½ inch, about four times bigger. Carpenter ants can vary in color, from solid black, to orange, red and black, yellow, or solid red.

Gawayne Nunes from Fox stopped by and took care of my home. I have had excellent service from Fox since joining up and even when the kids find an ant or spider a quick call and they are out in a day or two to retreat the entire home and ensure that we do not have any more issues. Lets face it pests will constantly look for free food, free homes, etc. and without ongoing support they will find new ways in to get what they can find. They have been consistently pleasant to work with and have made regular visits to check and ensure a barrier remains around the premises and check for possible issues. What more could you look for in a pest control company?

We have been a customer of Fox Pest Control for the past year and have been happy with results. Cawayne Nunes was our technician who came for scheduled service. He was very professional, friendly, and did a thorough job. Cawayne asked if we were seeing any issues and treated the inside when I asked. Before leaving, he asked if I had any questions or other concerns and said to contact them if we needed anything between service calls. We were very happy with the service today!
