Call Potomac Pest Control to help do away with annoying mosquitoes and prevent them from spoiling Summer evenings outside on your deck or in your yard. These nasty parasites not only inflict long lasting painful and itchy bites, but can also carry diseases.
Mosquitoes are usually attracted to water any source that may be still or stagnant. However, they can also be attracted to well-maintained and clean water whether in shaded or sunny locations. It doesn’t even need to be a lot of water. Puddle of rainwater after a Summer shower can be enough to invite them.
It is believed that mosquitoes target people with Type O blood nearly twice as much as people with Type A blood. That said, who would want to hear that high pitched buzzing around their ears, no matter what blood type they are?
If mosquitoes are on your deck, they can often make their way inside your home and wait for bedtime when you’re asleep. Who can easily fall asleep once they’ve heard that unmistakable mosquito sound?
Although many home-owners attempt to tackle the problem of pest infestations themselves, very often they find that it is a never-ending job because they are not familiar with where the source of the infestation is likely to be or what is attracting the pests to the home.
We at Potomac Pest Control have many years of experience, and can honestly state that we have seen it all before.
On our first visit, we will inspect your property to:
How are the ants or mice getting into your property? Where is their nest or nests? What is attracting them to your property? Do they want to get into your home because it’s Winter, and are they’re seeking warmth (protection from the elements) or food?
Are there unsealed gaps in the exterior brickwork or siding around pipes where a rat or a mouse can squeeze through?
Did you know that a rat can squeeze through a gap just half an inch deep?
Do they want to get into your home because there is easy access to food sources? Are there traces of cat food or dog food that they can get to? Are there sugar spills on the kitchen countertops or floor etc.?
By having a professional Pest control expert walk with you around your property, you will learn so much about how the problem is likely to have come about. You will also learn some simple things that can be done to fix the problem as well as how to limit the chances of the problem continuing or reoccurring.
Of course, one simple treatment is often unlikely to resolve the issue permanently, because new nests can become established, but at least we can tackle the immediate problem and then structure a plan to keep the pests at bay.
Did you know rats can build nests inside your vehicle?
They can be attracted by the warmth of a car engine and the material used to coat electrical wiring. Once they climb aboard, they can often cause thousands of dollars of damage by chewing the insulation and plastic coating off cabling in and around the engine and behind the dashboard.
There are many types of ants you may encounter around your Virginia home. No matter how large the infestation is, these three species are most disliked by our clients.
The little black ants are also known as sugar bugs. Although they can be active throughout the year, they are most active in spring or summer. These ants can be the most difficult to eliminate.
Large black ants can nest in wood and cause structural damage. Sprinkled sightings indoors of large black ants can be a sign that they are active at night.
Carpenter ants are rarely covered by homeowner’s insurance. These ants are small and brown in color and can cause ant hills on walkways, patios and in yards.
They rarely make nests inside, but they can cause lawn damage, disrupt landscaping and create unsightly nests in brick or pavers.
Our ant control services is the best at keeping ants away from your home.
When they enter your home, ants will seek shelter, food, or moisture. It is not uncommon for ants build nests under hardwood floors, in walls or in second-story bathrooms.
Sometimes the nest can be difficult to reach. Our pest control professional may recommend a more complicated solution, which might include using specialized baits inside your home and outside spray treatments.
