Should I get a Pest Control Service for my Home in Richmond City?

It is a known fact that home pests could be dangerous and destroy everything in their path. Even if you are taking preventative measures to avoid infestation, it is still wise to call professionals when you identify the first signs of an infestation.

At American Pest, we provide home pest services for:


As a homeowner in Richmond City, preventing pest infestation at home is a must, and a year-round service would make more sense in terms of budget and effectiveness.

Our home plans are designed to cover more than 30 household pests with environmentally-friendly methods, treating and inspecting your property every three months to make sure there is no pest activity. But if you are experiencing problems in between scheduled services, you can call us anytime, and we will visit you at no additional cost.

How can I get rid of Termites in Richmond City?

Termites are guilty of destroying hundreds of Richmond City houses and generating thousands of dollars in costs to homeowners. The reason why is their ability to work unnoticed, causing damages that are almost undetectable to our eyes.

To prevent this, we have adopted a baiting system that will only attract termites without using liquids or drilling into your foundation.

The Sentricon® baiting station kills the termites at their source, which means that workers termites will pick up the bait and take it back to the kingdom. This bait is more appealing to termites than the wood itself, making it the first thing termites salvage for their colony. The result will be the complete elimination of existing termites and the prevention of future infestations.
