Fort Washington, MD Pest Control Services
Our stretch of the East Coast is a great region in which to live and work. The winters are tolerable, and there’s plenty of refreshing rainfall in the hot summer months. Unfortunately, insects and rodents like our area for the same reasons.
Everyone agrees that pests are a nuisance, but few people realize just how serious infestations can be. Given the number of diseases that mosquitoes transmit, they are among the deadliest creatures on earth. Pharaoh ants are known to carry more than a dozen harmful pathogens and bacteria. Bedbug bites may cause a tormenting itch or trigger an allergic reaction. Roaches quickly get out of control because they alert family members to food sources and good hiding places. They are known to cause or exacerbate asthma in children. Bees are valuable contributors in the ecosystem, but their stings can be deadly to people with allergies. They must be carefully removed and relocated. We all know that rats and other rodents pose a number of health risks.
Termites are especially fond of our subtropical climate. Subterranean termites are the worst offenders, and they’re native to Virginia. They dig elaborate tunnels under the soil and make their way to wood sources aboveground. Storing firewood or scattering mulch adjacent to your house is like setting out a welcome mat. A single colony can multiply to more than 1 million insects, and infestation might go unnoticed for weeks while significant structural damage is taking place. The likelihood of termite infestation in our area is moderate to heavy. Carpenter bees, carpenter ants, and rodents are also threats to property.
