What Fall and Winter Rodent Season Means for Rockville Homeowners
Rats and mice are among the worst pests homeowners can have, spreading disease, triggering allergies, contaminating food, and damaging property wherever they go.
Unfortunately, as fall arrives and winter looms, the probability of a rodent infestation only increases as they find their way into residential areas in search of food and shelter.
That’s why it’s important to take steps to prevent rodents now before they can become an infestation in your home.
If you’ve already encountered evidence of a rodent infestation in your home or think you could be at risk for an infestation in the future, don’t wait: contact the professionals at American Pest today and find out how our comprehensive rodent exclusion programs can keep you and your family protected against these destructive pests.
Rockville Maryland Termite Control
In nature termites are a very beneficial species; they get rid of decaying organic materials that are lying around efficiently and effectively.
However, inside of homes and other properties, they are a very dangerous and damaging pest. Termites are generally found outside living in their underground nests, traveling in mud tubes, and feeding on decaying leaves, wood, and soil.
If the termites would just stay outside we wouldn’t have any issues with them, however, they have the tendency to accidentally wander into homes while foraging for food. Unfortunately, they stay and infiltrate and feed on any and all wood that is either in our homes or is part of our homes.
Over time termite damage can lead to the weakening of the structural integrity of your home which is a very serious issue that can be quite costly to repair.
The professionals here at American Pest understand just how damaging and stressful termite issues can be so we have developed a very powerful treatment using the highly effective and eco-friendly Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System. This system gets rid of a current termite infestation and also provides continuous monitoring to prevent future problems.

Mosquito Control In Rockville MD
Mosquitoes are a pest that invade Rockville every spring and unfortunately stay active right through the end of fall. These guys are known for the itchy bites that they inflict while biting us, but they are very quickly becoming better known for the serious diseases that they carry and spread. Diseases like the West Mile virus and Zika virus.
Reducing mosquito numbers on Rockville properties is on the mind of homeowners and here at American Pest, we can help with our mosquito control service.
The first step in treating mosquitoes is to have one of our trained professionals come to your property and inspect it. This inspection will reveal all the areas around your property that mosquitoes are breeding and hiding in.
Next, your property is treated once a month with a specialized misting process. Shrubs, trees, bushes, landscaping, and other areas will all be treated.
Finally we will use a biological mosquito larvicide to halt development mosquito larvae. If the larvae can’t mature, more adults can’t be produced!
