Day in the Life of a Fox Pest Pro

Maybe you've hired a pest control company to help take care of those ants that didn't want to go away.

Maybe you've wondered what it's like to treat bugs all day.

We talked to Joe Lobalsamo, service manager for Fox Pest Control Buffalo, and manages some of the Pest Pro Technicians who also in the Syracuse area as well, along with Chris Call.

We talked to Joe to gain a little insight into what it's like to treat pests.

Experiences and Stories From the Field

Joe has worked in the industry for years. He has learned to deal with all kinds of pest problems and situations that arise.

"We had a customer who had Yellow Jackets," he says, "going in and out at the soffit on their home. So they decided to seal it up, which is never a good idea. So they ended up chewing through the drywall in their bedroom and breaking through."

It isn't hard to imagine how terrifying it would be to wake up one day or get ready for bed at night and hear yellow jackets buzzing around the room. In his kind way, Joe and his team know how to keep customers from having similar problems in the future. "I reminded them that it's probably a good idea to call us first next time."

Tips for Syracuse Homeowners

Winter Pest Control Services

It's not hard to look out the window in February and wonder how pests could survive in all that snow.

But actually, there's plenty going on under the surface.

Pests don't die during the winter. They either go dormant in a kind of hibernating state called diapause or they lay eggs that survive the cold temperatures and then hatch when the weather turns warm again.

In the Words of a Professional

We asked Joe what he would say about winter services.

"Think about winter service," he says, "as prepping [the] home for the crazy activity that spring, summer, and fall bring. The winter services also help with indoor pests that don't go dormant."

Plenty of pests stay active throughout the winter because it's warm enough to stay active. Spiders and ants, for one, simply don't stop moving, if they move much less than they usually do.

Plus, when the weather warms up in the middle of winter, or the humidity changes, plenty of different pests can suddenly come out of their sleepy state and cause all kinds of problems in your home.

Plus, mice and rats are a problem throughout the winter. Always be sure to continue to receive services for all pests, not just rodents, but rodents especially want to stay in a place where they can stay warm and out of the snow.

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.
