Parish, NY is a fairly rural area. Residents living around this area can expect to encounter mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks. Those who live closer to the Little Salmon River may experience more mosquito, flea, and tick activity since wild animals, an ideal host, are attracted to the water. All three of these little pests are also attracted to wet, damp areas. Those who live around forested, wet areas need to keep an eye out for bloodsucking pests.
Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks all have one thing in common: they feed on host blood. A host can be a wild animal, pet, human – basically any living thing. However, there are a few differences. Mosquitoes can be recognized as the small, winged insects that fly around and cause itchy bumps and welts on hot summer days. Fleas are tiny, brown bugs that attach to a host and typically stay for long periods of time. They’re often seen on pets. Ticks are more similar to fleas, but their dark bodies puff up to a big circle as they fill with blood. No matter if it’s mosquitoes, fleas, or ticks on your property, there’s a problem. Call Fox Pest Control immediately if you suspect an infestation.
One of our Fox technicians, Devon, spent most of his life in Parish. Devon’s grandfather played a huge role in his life and knowledge of Parish.. Devon remembers times as a child when his grandfather would take him out into the Parish woods for survival lessons. He told him that he needed to know how to survive in the wilderness, because the future is always uncertain. One tactic Devon’s grandfather taught him was following moss to reach civilization. He also learned that, in the most dire situations, he could crack open a Goldenrod plant and find a larva inside of it to eat. Thankfully, Devon has not needed to utilize these strategies, but he is grateful to have had that knowledge instilled in him by someone he looked up to.
