Three Pests You Can Live Without

Many nuisance pests make Northern Virginia their home, but that doesn’t mean that you have to share your house with them. Better Termite and Pest Control has been eradicating pests for over 50 years. Here are three of the worst pests that can invade your house.

Ants might be small, but they can cause big problems. They live in the smallest spaces behind walls and under appliances. They can cause short circuits and fires when they chew on the electrical wires in your home. They quickly discover dropped food particles and signal their colony to help themselves to the food source. You’ll see a long trail of ants heading to and from any crumbs or dribbled drinks on your kitchen floor.

Termites are silent invaders. They enter your home through outdoor tunnels and burrow into your rafters, cabinets and furniture. Tiny dirt tubes on the surface of the wood in your home are the most obvious sign that you have termites. It doesn’t take a termite colony long to completely hollow out your rafters, window sills or shelving. The destruction they cause is permanent.

Rodents enter your home via holes in the foundation or under doors. They can squeeze through very narrow crevices. You’ll know you have an infestation if you see their droppings in your cabinets or on your floor. Rats and mice can spread germs and disease because they live in dirty areas and walk through the filth. Rodents are intolerable.

At Better Termite and Pest Control, our technicians are standing by to rid your home of these pests. If you’ve noticed symptoms of an invasion, contact us immediately for a free estimate to rid your home of these unwanted guests.

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
