Typical New Holland Pest Control Problems

As one of the larger boroughs of Lancaster County, New Holland has a few unique pest problems of its own. With lots of houses gathered closely together and completely surrounded by fields, New Holland residents should be looking out for various pest problems, including ants, mice, and rats.

The most common types of home-invading ants in Pennsylvania are turfgrass ants, pavement ants, odorous house ants (or sugar ants), little black ants, and carpenter ants. Of all these types of ants, carpenter ants are the most destructive to homes. They use their massive jaws to carve tunnels through healthy or damaged wood in wood piles, wooden dog houses or bird feeders, homes, and other wooden structures. In some cases, carpenter ants can tunnel through a home or other building for 8-10 years without discovery, causing huge amounts of home damage not covered by insurance. 

Mice and rats are some of the most universal pest problems in Pennsylvania, including New Holland. During the summer, mice and rats generally spend most of their time in the fields that surround the borough, giving them access to field crops, shelter under the crops’ leaves, and water from irrigation systems. However, mice and rats are likely to find their way into homes to look for food, especially during the winter months. Once inside, these rodents contaminate food, chew through walls and electrical wires, build nests,and can spread diseases to people and animals. These include tularemia, various hemorrhagic fevers, rat-bite fever, salmonella, Lassa fever, hantavirus, and even the plague.

Fox Pest Control’s Pest Exterminator Service

Pests come in all shapes and sizes. From ants in your kitchen, to termites in your foundation, bug infestations are an inevitable part of homeownership in Lancaster. Some bugs are just a nuisance, like silverfish or crickets which like dark damp places. Other pests like termites or rodents are cause for concern as they cause property damage and can carry disease. Whatever the pest problem you might have in Lancaster, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Lancaster pest might be bothering you.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

You might already know you have a pest problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination look for in Lancaster. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Lancaster is simply by observing it. It could be a mouse in your house, cockroaches skittering when you turn on the lights, or a swarm of hornets around a nest. In any case, it’s time to get rid of pests!
  • Signs of activity. Pests are adept at hiding from us, so you won’t always spot them. Instead, you might notice signs of their presence such as rodent droppings or small piles of “saw dust”  resulting from termite or carpenter ant activity.

What You Need to Know About Pests

  • Pests come in a large variety. In Lancaster, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • Pests find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping.  It’s important to get help from a professional exterminator because, depending on the species, they may create nests, contaminate food and water in your kitchen and bathroom, or cause damage to the inside of walls, electrical wiring, or other parts of the house.
  • While some pests can cause home damage, many carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. You must control mosquitoes and rodents as they are the most notorious for this.
  • Spiders and wasps are famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

Helpful Lancaster Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
  • Store all food in airtight containers. 
  • Never leave food (including pet food) outside.

Is a trail of ants marching across your countertop,
or setting up camp in your cupboard?

Don't worry — we've got a solution!

They can also slip in through open gaps around windows or door frames.

If you've got food or moisture available, they'll come crawling.

Most ants are harmless.

But some, like fire ants, bite and sting.

Other types of ants build huge mounds that can tear up your lawn.

Carpenter ants can burrow into your wood,
causing major damage to window and door frames, or even the structure of your home.
