Falls Church Pest Control
Stink bugs often enter a home in the fall when freshly-hatched insects are born out of the summer mating season. They get in through cracks and crevices in the home’s exterior and begin moving freely through the house in the spring. Though not particularly harmful, their rotten stench makes them unpleasant houseguests, and their propensity for garden destruction makes them a hazard to plants and crops.
Ants come in many different sizes and species, but most homeowners don’t want any of them in the house. They are small enough to get in through even the smallest entryways, leaving chemical trails in their wake. The rest of the colony will follow these trails, a process by which infestation can easily begin. Fire ants pack a powerful, painful bite, and carpenter ants can make mincemeat out of your home’s wood.
Most spiders are more beneficial than harmful, but that doesn’t mean you want them in your home. Signs include the live arachnids themselves and their webs, which are often hidden away in dark corners of the ceiling. Though most spiders are benign, black widows, yellow sac spiders, and brown recluses are venomous enough to be feared.
