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.

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
