Local Bristow Pests and Their Risks
Your home should be pest free. Even a few pests can signal a problem, and the longer it goes without treatment, the more problematic it can be. Some of the most common pests in our local area include:
- Bees and Wasps
- Fleas and Ticks
- Earwigs, and More
The risk to your property and family when you have a pest infestation will vary by pest. For some bugs like earwigs and most ants, the problem lies in their numbers. Many insects live in social colonies and where there is one, there will soon be thousands more.
Other bugs have health risks. This can range from itchy or painful bites and stings to allergic reactions from stinging pests, mosquito-borne illnesses, and tick-borne illnesses. Bugs like flies and roaches also spread various bacteria on all the surfaces they cross.
Mice and rats are another pest concern in Bristow. As a wildlife pest that has adapted to living with people, rodents most often invade homes for the protection, warmth, and ready access to food. Their size means they can easily cause more damage than most insects with droppings and chewing, and many mice and rats are known carriers of bacteria and viruses.
Because of the risks of rodents, we include them in our ongoing pest control at ExtermPRO so that we can handle all your pest needs with a single team and the same service visits.
Our Approach to Pest Control
We emphasize prevention at ExtermPRO with regular, ongoing pest control. While we can perform extermination on any bug infestation, we find that prevention is more effective, affordable, and convenient for our clients. This approach is like a regular checkup with your doctor. Each visit gives our pest experts a chance to check for existing problems, take early action, and put any necessary preventative measures in place.
In the pest control process, this may include:
- Inspection – We always begin with a close survey of the exterior of your property. Especially in the early days of an infestation, the signs can be subtle and it is not unusual for homeowners to miss them. Our team is specially trained to note the potential signs that pests have gotten inside or are becoming more active in the area.
- Pest Extermination – If our inspection determines that pests are living inside your home or outdoor pests pose a risk, we will move to extermination to get rid of them. This can include exterior and interior pest control, but because we are visiting regularly, early detection usually means any extermination goes quickly.
- Creating a Shield – Our next step is to create a barrier that pests will not cross. Typically, this is limited to the exterior of your home, such as the foundation and around windows and doors where pests are most likely to find spaces to get inside. We use long lasting, eco-friendly treatments for this application that will remain effective for several weeks.
- Report – At the end of a visit, we will let you know what steps we took and particular risks we noted. Treatment-based pest control is effective, but limited maintenance around your home, such as trimming back bushes or limiting standing water where mosquitoes breed, will add to the protective benefits of our services.
We provide bi-monthly and quarterly pest control services. With our bi-monthly pest control, you also receive exterior mosquito control and exterior flea control throughout the spring, summer, and early fall when these pests are biting.
Each of our pest protection plans is designed to keep your home free of pests between each of our visits with treatments that are long lasting and targeted application strategies. With the addition of rodent exclusion and strategies to help make your home less appealing to pests, quarterly or bi-monthly visits are enough to keep pests away all year long.
Termite Control in Bristow, VA
Termite infestations bring different challenges, both for you as the homeowner and our pest control team. These wood destroying pests are one of the most devastating to local properties as they eat through the wood of homes and structures. Nationwide, termites cause billions of dollars in damage each year, and Northern Virginia’s warm and humid climate makes Bristow a hot spot for termites as it enables them to continue eating throughout the year with minimal overwintering time.
Termites also do not respond to the same treatments as other seasonal pests. Instead, they require specific treatments and methods to quickly eliminate them and prevent further damage.
Our comprehensive termite control in Bristow includes services to detect and stop termite activity early with:
- Termite Inspections – We have subterranean termites in Bristow. These species live underground when they are not tunneling through your walls, making them almost impossible to spot. Our team knows the outward signs of termites and where to find them. Annual inspections or inspections after you suspect termite activity will help you confirm an infestation and get immediate treatment.
- Termite Treatments – In order for a termite treatment to be effective, it needs to work quickly and eliminate every termite. At ExtermPRO, we have a range of solutions including baits, soil treatments, and sealants, allowing us to customize our termite extermination to the size and spread of your infestation.
- Termite Prevention – Termite baits and certain soil treatments can have lasting effects in terms of deterring termites from entering your home. We can discuss which options might work for you to protect your property from future damage.
Like other local pests, termites are a threat to nearly every property in Bristow, including newer and older construction. At ExtermPRO, we can create a tailored termite control plan for you whether you need to get rid of termites now or want to safeguard your property against extensive termite activity.
