In Midland, Texas, residents see a variety of different pests. Ants are one of the most common pests, particularly fire ants, acrobat ants, harvester ants, and carpenter ants. Out of all these, fire ants and carpenter ants are the most unpleasant. Fire ants are commonly found in mounds in the grass or in the sidewalk. Their bites produce an unpleasant burning sensation and red bump, so it’s best to avoid them. Carpenter ants, on the other hand, can cause serious property damage. These pesky creatures tunnel their way through wood using their large mandibles, and they can go undetected in walls for up to eight years. It’s important to take carpenter ant infestations seriously.
In addition to ants, black widow spiders are also extremely common in Midland. Black widows hide in dark, unbothered places such as eaves, wood piles, unused shoes, children’s toys, and patio furniture. These spiders can be identified by the trademark red markings on their abdomens. Black widows are poisonous, so it’s important to seek medical care if bitten. However, it’s best to avoid them in the first place. If you see black widows or ants on your property, call Fox Pest Control immediately for professional and prompt 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 Midland & Odessa. 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 Midland & Odessa, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Midland & Odessa pest might be bothering you.
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 Midland & Odessa.
There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Midland & Odessa pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience. The products available for purchase at your local hardware store just aren’t as effective as our integrated pest management techniques that safely use professional products and also take pest behavior into account.
Responsible companies like Fox Pest Control use products that are proven to get rid of pests while also being environmentally responsible.
Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.
Our environmentally friendly products are uniquely designed to get rid of the pests while also allowing you to enjoy the comfort and safety of your home. Our products are designed to be child and pet friendly.
We combine modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with a variety of environmentally responsible products. Since each situation — and each pest — is different, we make adjustments accordingly. Speak to our customer service representatives for a list of products used during your service call.
For up to three months after the application, any bugs, insects, or other pests that come across the area will be exterminated. You can rest easy knowing we are controlling the bugs so you can focus on what matters most to you.
During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.
Yes. Each Home Protection Plan (HPP) comes with our Fox Money-Back Guarantee. Call our customer service representatives to let us know if pests come back between your regular services, and we will come back to treat the pests again, free of charge.
For the standard Home Protection Plan, we plan to service the outside of your Midland & Odessa home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our technicians have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request a treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of IF, but WHEN the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Midland & Odessa pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.
Many people in Midland & Odessa are stung by insects like wasps every year. Some people are allergic to these stings. Because their stinger isn’t barbed, wasps, bumblebees, and some carpenter bees are capable of stinging multiple times.
All our products are formulated and proven by the EPA to be the environmentally responsible choice for effective pest control.
Fox offers organic exterminator treatment products upon customer request. Please speak with our customer service representatives for further details.
There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Midland & Odessa home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
