Incidents of bed bug infestations are becoming more commonplace and because they are wonderful travelers that can be picked up unknowingly they are entering home and business environments without difficulty. Bed bug problems can put a strain on home and business owners as these nighttime pests infest residential dwellings as well as school dormitories, hospitals, hotels and apartment complexes. If left unaddressed bed bugs can totally infest a home or commercial facility in a short period of time. Because bed bugs are active at night and rely mainly on human blood for their survival, these tiny, oval shaped insects will bite you, your family or your patrons as they sleep and their elusive nature makes it hard to identify an infestation. During the day they congregate in cracks and crevices of furniture, mattresses as well as personal items. At American Pest our bed bug control services include the use of our canine bed bug detection teams. With the help of our bed bug dogs and their handlers we can pinpoint bed bug infestations with an accuracy that cannot be matched which allows us to treat only the areas that have bed bugs. Our Aspen Hill bed bug control is effective in getting rid of bed bugs quickly and completely.

Subterranean termites are wood-destroying insects that eat leaf litter, soil, and wood. Even though they are small and are no threat to humans they are capable of causing severe structural damage to residential dwellings. Because termites live in underground colonies on your property and make their way to your home via mud tubes or tunnels, they are hard to detect until their damage is severe. At American Pest our trained professionals evaluate your home and property, identify any termite infestations and then eradicate the entire termite colony. We then install Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination Systems to monitor for any new activity from termites ensuring your home remains intact and free of termites. For the most effective Aspen Hill termite control, contact American Pest.
Mosquitoes can ruin even the best outdoor event. When they show up at your barbecue, tailgate, or family event, they can send everyone running inside. Worse yet, our mosquito season here in Aspen Hill lines up almost perfectly with graduation and wedding season. You don’t want mosquito bites to be the memories you and your guests leave with.
You can try to treat mosquitoes yourself. There are plenty of DIY solutions available online and at hardware stores. Treatments like citronella candles may briefly protect a tiny area, but they aren’t getting to the root of your mosquito problem.
Instead of wasting your time, let American Pest treat your lawn for mosquitoes. With our mosquito control services, one of our exterminators will use aerosol sprays to treat areas where mosquitoes frequent, as well as potential breeding areas. We return monthly during peak mosquito season to re-treat your yard and keep mosquitoes away. We also offer one-time treatments for special events. If you are hosting a party in your backyard or another outdoor area, we can spray 24 to 48 hours in advance so your event will be mosquito-free.
We have our share of rodents here in Aspen Hill. Unfortunately, they aren’t content to stay outside. They regularly try to find their way into your home, seeking food, water, and shelter from hot or cold temperatures.
It can be startling the first time you see a rodent in your home. But beyond scaring you, they can cause other issues. Here are a few of the problems you could face if you don’t keep rodents under control:
Health issues: Rodents spread various diseases, introduce bacteria and other dangerous pests like fleas into your home, and contaminate food. They can also trigger allergic reactions in people who are sensitive.
Property damage: These pests chew constantly, and they chew everything. They can destroy your home, chewing through pipes, wires, insulation, drywall, and almost everything else. Rodents have even been found to cause floods and fires if they chew through plumbing or live wires.
Population growth: Rodents breed quickly. A female mouse can give birth to more than 50 pups a year. If you don’t do anything to stop them, rodent populations can get out of control fast.
Don’t let rodents take over your home and put your family at risk. Let our trained exterminators keep rodents under control around your property using safe rodent control methods that have proven to be effective.
If you are a pet owner, you’ve dealt with ticks. These tiny pests latch on to people or animals, feeding on their blood. When they do, they transmit dangerous bacteria that can cause various diseases, including Lyme disease, tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, and others.
Keeping ticks away from your property is a multi-step effort. There are things you can do around your property to reduce the tick population, including:
Keep bushes trimmed and the grass cut low.
Eliminate leaf and plant debris.
Use hardscapes like decks, patios, and paths to limit vegetation.
Use ground cover only in areas where people and pets don’t frequent.
Stay up to date with your pet’s tick control medicine.
These steps can be combined with professional tick control from American Pest. We’ll use spray treatments to cover areas where ticks frequent to protect your home during tick season. We also offer one-time treatments that can be done if you plan to host a big event in your backyard, so all your guests can go home safe and tick-free.
Bed bugs are known as one of nature’s best hitchhikers. They can sneak into your home as simple as hopping on the leg of your pants if you walk through a hot spot at work. Their ability to travel from place to place is one of the reasons that bed bugs are a growing problem in residential neighborhoods.
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to avoid bed bugs in your Aspen Hill home. Some of these steps include:
When traveling, wrap your luggage in a plastic bag, and keep clothes and suitcases off the floor of hotel rooms.
After returning from a trip, immediately wash all your clothes and luggage.
Wash or steam any new clothes when you bring them home.
When buying furniture, especially at a second-hand store, thoroughly inspect seams, zippers, and the backs of drawers for signs of bed bugs.
Vacuum your home and office regularly.
