If you live in Virginia, then you likely know that pests try to take advantage of the warmth inside of your home as the temperatures drop in the winter. On the other hand, the hot and humid summers can mean that pests are more active and reproduce at faster rates. If you encounter any of the below pests in your home or office space, it is crucial that you act quickly to professionally eliminate them. The sooner you take action, the better your effective rate at taking care of pests for good.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes can carry any number of dangerous and deadly viruses and diseases. If you have any standing water around your home, you are more likely to find mosquitoes. Some of the most dangerous include the West Nile virus, Zika and heartworm. In addition to being dangerous, mosquitoes can also make you feel like you cannot enjoy your outdoor space and put a damper on summer fun.

Silverfish

This is a very common insect in Virginia that is attracted to sugar in food inside your home. Silverfish tend to lay their eggs in moist areas of your home and can enter the structure through any crack around your foundation, doors or windows. They are difficult to spot and can move very quickly. Once you notice a silverfish infestation in your home, it is very difficult to curb without the help of a professional. When the humidity increases during the Virginia summer, silverfish become more active and reproduce quickly.

Spiders

The most dangerous spiders found in Virginia include the black widow, brown recluse and the wolf spider. Some of these spiders can be about one inch in size and are known to inhabit areas that have lots of trees, leaves and bushes. They can be difficult to track down and remain in covered spaces throughout your home, which means that simply setting a trap for them might not be the answer.
