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.
Differences Between Professional Mosquito Control And DIY Solutions In Aspen Hill
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.
Why Aspen Hill Homeowners Should Consider Rodent Control
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.
