There are dozens of pests that find their way into your home, but three are on the top of the least wanted list. The members of this troublesome trio are the most common house invaders in northern Virginia, and they all quickly become more than a nuisance. Some of the most common pests in Arlington are termites, ants, rodents.

Termites – Dining on the House

Termites are subterranean insects that invade your home from the ground up. They swarm in the spring, and once they’ve settled in, these invaders are hard to detect before they’ve done serious damage. Keep an eye out for their shelter tubes that run up walls and into the house’s structure. These dirt tunnels are a sure sign that termites are feasting on your home.

Ants – Contaminating the Kitchen

Ants scurrying across the counter send you running for the bug spray, but the few that you kill are members of a colony that numbers in the tens of thousands. These small bugs contaminate food in the pantry and leave bacterial trails everywhere they roam. Whether they infest your walls or ruin the backyard with their mounds, tiny ants cause big problems.

Rodents – Nesting in the Insulation

Mice and rats leave unsanitary droppings as their calling cards, and their musty odor is unmistakable. These rodents slip inside through foundation cracks, and they sneak in around hookups for plumbing, and electrical connections. The vermin quickly set up nests made of soft wood and insulation as they gnaw their way through your walls, wiring and groceries.

I have been using... better termites and pest control since 1995 when I was recommended to them by the builder that built my home back then. Since then I moved and I went into a townhouse development where you have neighbors and those neighbors affect how you care for your property. Better termites and pest control has been providing me yearly termite inspections, I do exterior treatments for all sorts of different pests six times a year and if I ever have a problem, which I have not, they will come out and identify the problem and tend to it. George the owner is responsive, and caring and I wouldn't go anywhere else. This is an industry where you really have to know what is being provided, the chemicals that are being used, and that services are being done, especially if you're not home for every visit. Better termites and pest control is also quite fair in their pricing and it's a small family-run business. I recommend them highly.read more
