Mice Control in Fox Chapel
Let’s talk mice. In general, we all know that these small critters should be kept out of our homes at all costs. They spread disease, contaminate food, destroy personal property, and damage structural elements that can lead to fires and water damage. But do you really know how to keep them out of your home? If you are unsure, we have the answers! The professionals at Witt Pest Management want to offer you three easy, affordable ways that you can help to prevent mice from being attracted to your property and from finding their way inside of your home.
- Declutter your home and property. Remove piles of organic debris and construction materials from your yard. Inside, remove clutter from the attic, basement, and/or closets. Mice love to hide and nest inside of clutter.
- Inspect the exterior of your home. Sealing any cracks that are found big or small, in the foundation or exterior walls of your home.
- Keep food in plastic or glass air-tight containers or inside of the refrigerator. Pick-up any uneaten pet food in-between feedings and store dry pet food in containers with lids.
If mice ever become a problem inside of your home, eliminate them quickly with our rodent removal services here at Witt. Our professionals can quickly get rid of mice from your home and keep them from returning year-round.

Bed Bug Treatment in Fox Chapel
Bed bugs are parasitic pests that feed on the blood of humans at night by getting into their beds and other furniture. However, it can be difficult to identify the source of the infestation due to the bed bug's small size and ability to access almost anywhere in the home.
They’re also fast breeders, so the earlier you can identify an infestation, the faster you can take steps to stop them. Here are some of the warning signs you should be aware of so that you can identify a bed bug infestation early and stop it before it grows out of control:
- Brown or red spots or streaks appearing on your bedding, furniture, or walls.
- Shed skins from bed bugs molting.
- Clusters of minuscule white eggs or eggshells.
- Waking up with numerous small bites around your extremities.
We offer specialty bed bug control services for Fox Chapel residents and business owners. Our specialists know exactly what to look for and how to handle bed bug infestations of any shape or size. Our bed bug detecting canines can sniff out bed bugs anywhere they might be in the house and find them with pin-point precision. We’ll comprehensively treat the bed bugs present and then make return visits afterward to eliminate any eggs that might have hatched.
Mosquitoes are more than just a buzz kill. Their annoying buzzing and the itchy stings they leave behind are only the tip of the iceberg: mosquitoes spread some dangerous and even deadly diseases, and their bites should be avoided if at all possible. However, with such large swarms and the ability to fly, what’s to stop them from getting to your home?
The answer? In most cases, nothing. When it comes to mosquitoes, the only thing you can do is take steps to deter them from your yard and avoid giving them an incentive to stay. The biggest factor that attracts mosquitoes to a given property is the presence of pools of standing water that they can use as breeding pools.
Here are some general strategies you should use to mitigate mosquitoes around your home as much as possible:
- Eliminate sources of standing water around your yard like flower pots, tires, toys, etc.
- Ensure that your gutters and drains are working properly to carry water away from the home.
- Treat any swimming pools or ponds with chemicals to prevent mosquitoes from using them for breeding.
- Cut your grass frequently.
- Plant mosquito-deterring plants like citronella, marigold, lavender, and catnip around the yard.
- Have a year-round pest control strategy in place to stop mosquitoes and other pests.
Are mosquitoes killing your buzz? Contact us today and one of our professional technicians can perform an extensive inspection of your property to identify the source of the infestation before misting the property to ensure as complete a treatment as possible. In a typical treatment schedule, you receive repeat service every month to stop new mosquitoes from appearing, but we also offer one-time services for special occasions.
Ticks are dangerous and difficult-to-treat pests that thrive in Fox Chapel’s forests. The two most common dangerous ticks are the Blacklegged tick (or deer tick) and the Brown Dog Tick. Despite their names, both types of ticks are not picky about their blood meals, and will happily hop on the back of any mouse, squirrel, cat, or other woodland animals they find - and it is this behavior that usually takes them into residential areas.
Ticks are known to transmit a number of dangerous diseases, including:
- Lyme Disease
- Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever
- Bourbon Virus
- Borrelia Miyamotoi
- And more
The dangers ticks pose to your family and pets make them a hazard you can’t afford to allow around your home. Here are some tips to prevent ticks around your property:
- Mow the lawn regularly.
- Trim back any vegetation away from the sides of the house.
- Wear long-sleeve shirts and pants when spending long periods of time outdoors.
- Avoid going into wooded areas around your property without proper clothing.
- Check your skin and clothing thoroughly for ticks before returning inside.
- Invest in flea & tick collars for your pets.
- Seal any cracks or holes in your home’s walls, roof, and foundations.
Unfortunately, even the best prevention steps can sometimes fail. When that happens, don’t wait; contact the pest professionals at Witt Pest Management for help. We specialize in eliminating ticks, mosquitoes, bed bugs, and numerous other invasive pests from homes across Pennsylvania. If ticks have started biting around your property, don’t wait: call Witt now for professional tick treatment.
In the spring and summer when temperatures soar, ants are an unfortunate part of life. There are dozens of recognized species of ants that call Pennsylvania home, but the most common inside homes are acrobat ants, citronella ants, crazy ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, and destructive carpenter ants.
While each ant carries its own unique behaviors and quirks, they all pose the same threat of getting into your stored food items and ruining them. Here are some good tips and strategies you should use to protect your kitchen against the ants marching into it:
- Repair any cracks or tears in your home’s walls, roof, floor, and foundations.
- Make sure windows and doors are closing effectively and completely, install door sweeps.
- Cut back any vegetation touching the sides of your home and mow the lawn often.
- Ensure your gutters and drains are working properly.
- Store outdoor garbage in sealed bins that ants cannot get inside.
- Do not leave out any food overnight.
- Clean up dropped crumbs and drink spills as soon as they happen.
- Wipe down the kitchen counters after each meal.
- Regularly inspect your home for any leaky pipes and have them fixed immediately.
- Use dehumidifiers to decrease moisture levels throughout the home.
