Silverfish are brown in color, with their carrot-shaped bodies covered with silvery scales, and they move quickly from place to place in a fish-like manner. Silverfish are not a danger to people but they are dangerous to property. They will feed on and create holes in clothing, furniture, pictures, books, and wallpaper. Keeping these pests out of your Annapolis Junction home is important to protect your personal property and sanity. When trying to avoid having silverfish choose your home to live inside of it is important to know that they are moisture seeking pests. Reducing moisture levels in and around your home is key to deterring these pests. Fix any leaky, pipes or fixtures that are found inside or outside of your home, place dehumidifiers in basement areas, make sure that crawl spaces are well-ventilated, and make sure that gutters are working to direct water away from the outside of your home. Other silverfish prevention tips include:
Place a stone or rock barrier between your home’s foundation and any grass, mulch, or soil.
Place door sweeps on all exterior doors.
Seal any cracks or crevices found in the exterior walls or foundation.
Fill in spaces found around wires, pipes, wires, or other utilities that are entering into your home.

Carpenter ants are large black ants, with adults growing to ½ of an inch in length. Like most other pests carpenter ants are attracted to homes and properties that offer them easy access to their basic needs of food, water, and shelter. Once they have found their way into your home they may decide to stay and create satellite colonies behind your home’s walls and inside of its structural wood. If left alone, carpenter ants will tunnel deeper into the structural wood of your home, causing more and more damages; damages that will become difficult and expensive to repair as time goes on. To protect your Annapolis Junction home from being invaded by these pests, contact American Pest. Through our Preferred Care services, we can provide the solutions needed to keep these pests out of your home all year long. Our on-going pest control services will protect your home not only from potentially very damaging pests but from annoying nuisance pests and nosy wildlife as well!
