Fredericksburg is a historic mid-sized community located just on the northern edge of Spotsylvania County. Home to the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park, the Fredericksburg National Cemetery housed within is the final resting place of thousands of Union soldiers that died in the Civil War. While it’s a history buff’s delight, it has unfortunately also attracted another, less savory sort of resident: pests, including insects, rodents, and more.

Guide To Avoiding Termite Damage In Fredericksburg, VA

Termite infestations in Fredericksburg are not a rare occurrence. Our climate lends itself to termite activity and, unfortunately, that activity could quickly end up in your home if it's not protected. Termites love rotting or damp wood, but they'll settle for dry wood if they have to.
Although keeping moisture levels low in and around your house and property is an important step in deterring termites, it's not enough. The only way to prevent termites and the damage they cause is to set up 24-hour protection against them. American Pest is a certified installer of the Sentricon® System with Always Active™. This termite baiting system monitors termite activity around the perimeter of your home 24 hours a day and eliminates any active termite colonies that try to infest your home.
Whether you are concerned about a current infestation or want to prevent one before it occurs, American Pest can protect your Fredericksburg home from termites and the damage they cause.
