Pest Control Washington DC
Insects, rodents and other pests seem to appear out of nowhere. They have an uncanny knack for knowing just when you are entertaining friends or serving your customers. These embarrassing pests increase your risk for serious health and safety issues. Termites and rodents eat and gnaw on wood, which weakens structural elements. Studies confirm that termites cause more damage than natural disasters. Incessant chewers, rodents gnaw on the insulation covering electrical wiring. Without this protective coating, the wires can spark and start a fire. Rodents can also endanger your health by transmitting diseases and contaminating food. They carry fleas and other parasites that can pose a potential health risk. In addition to the folds of mattresses, bedding and other fabrics, beg bugs lurk inside the crevices of furniture and baseboards. Bed bugs can inflict a bite similar to that of mosquitoes. The ensuing rash can become infected from scratching. The thought of being bitten by a bed bug while you sleep will not improve your sense of well-being.
Protect Your Washington, DC Property with Perimeter Services
Washington DC home and business owners often wonder how these pests enter what appears to be a properly sealed building. These interlopers search until they find tiny cracks, crevices and other small openings, such as the gaps in doorways and windows as well as missing caulk where utility lines pass through walls and foundations. The untrained eye frequently overlooks these tiny entry points. Termites build mud tunnels that enable them to reach your Washington home or business.
Our Preventive Pest Control Plans are exactly what the doctor ordered to prevent pest issues and help protect structures from damage and people from disease. The service may also keep surrounding landscaping free from plant-eating insects. Our comprehensive plan helps identify potential points of entry and provides information about the steps you can take to prevent future infestations.
Eliminating Pests from Inside Your DC Home or Business
If you notice or suspect an infestation has already occurred, it is critical that you take action as soon as possible. Do not rely on home remedies. While they may kill the pests that you see, they are typically ineffective at eliminating the colony, which may be in a hidden or difficult to access space. In some cases, bug sprays cause the pests to spread to other locations in your home or business. With rodents, it is important to identify entry points and seal them with concrete and other permanent fixes to prevent their entry. Our knowledgeable technicians have the experience to identify the root cause of an infestation and the right equipment to ensure that the problem is eliminated. This service means that you will have the peace of mind that you or your customers deserve knowing that pests are no longer an issue.
