Bed Bug Control in Harrisonburg, VA

Bed bug infestations are a big problem for homes and businesses across Virginia, and the same is certain true for Harrisonburg. These parasitic pests are small, flat, oval-shaped insects that feed on human blood, leading them to invade any homes they come across before quickly multiplying and taking it over. 

Bed bugs are usually carried into a property undetected on luggage, clothing or even directly on skin. They can be difficult to identify and even harder to eliminate because of their ability to hide in a number of small spaces in your home or business, including:

  • Inside mattresses and mattress seams

  • In laundry

  • In clutter 

  • Inside carpets 

  • In-between floorboards or behind baseboards

  • Behind electric outlet covers

  • In personal items or electronics

Bed bugs are almost impossible to eliminate on your own, so call the professionals at American Pest when the bed bugs bite. Using a potent mix of traditional methods, heat treatments, and K-9 detection teams, we’ll identify and eliminate any bed bugs that have gotten inside while helping ensure the infestation doesn’t simply reappear tomorrow.

Mosquito Control in Harrisonburg, VA

The high heat and humidity around Harrisonburg in the summer makes it a hot spot for mosquito activity. However, the itchy bites and annoying buzzing is only one component that makes mosquitoes such a problematic pest: they are also vectors for many diseases. 

Here are some quick tips you can use to help protect yourself and your home against mosquitoes:

1. Eliminate all standing water outdoors. Mosquitoes need standing water to breed, so remove any tires, buckets, plant pots, and toys that could hold water from your yard, and ensure your gutter and all water runoff systems are working properly. 

2. Protect yourself. Minimize your risk for mosquito bites by limiting your early morning and evening outdoor activities, when mosquitoes are most active. Cover up as much of your skin as possible with long sleeves and pants while outdoors. Use a mosquito repellent that contains DEET.  

3. Eliminate any potential openings. Repair or replace damaged insect screens on windows, doors, and vents. Install weatherstripping on doors and windows. Repair any tears or holes that mosquitoes (or other pests) could use to get inside.

4. Get professional help. Mosquitoes are almost impossible to eliminate if you go it solo. Luckily, you don’t have to. Get real protection with help from the experts here at American Pest.
