World Pest Day Brings Awareness This Summer
It is inevitable that at some point your home will be invaded by pests no matter what part of the country you live in including Lorton, Virginia. While some homeowners give pest control a go on their own, some pest problems require professional treatment in order to completely and successfully resolve the problem. Among those are bed bugs and termites in Lorton.
Bed bugs can be very difficult to rid your home of, partially due to their elusive nature that makes them hard to find. To make it more difficult, bed bugs seem to have a built up resistance to many common pesticides. They are nocturnal and therefore are hardly ever seen during the day, their flat body shape is ideal for hiding in the cracks and crevices in walls and bed frames; they also breed and multiply very quickly. When you choose the Lorton pest control professionals at American Pest to treat your bed bug problem you can rest assured knowing the infestation will be eradicated. Based on the infestation, we will develop a plan of action that may include the use of:
K-9 bed bug detection
bed bug heat treatment
mattress and box spring encasement
bed bug monitoring

Another hard to detect and treat pest that plagues Lorton and northern Virginia homeowners are termites. Termites are social insects that live in large colonies containing thousands to millions of insects. Because there are so many termites involved in an infestation they can inflict thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home. What’s worse is that you may not even realize it! Termites work from the inside and move out so what looks like strong, intact wood could actually be hollow and damaged from these destructive pests. If swarming termites have emerged from wall voids and other inaccessible places in your home, you need to give us a call. If you’ve noticed sagging doors, warped floors or other evidence of wood damage, you may have a termite problem and should seek help immediately. American Pest, a Lorton pest control provider, will be able to discuss with you what option will work best for your home and create a specific termite control treatment plan.
The unique nature of these pests and the difficulty of eliminating them with common methods and pesticides make it necessary to get the help from a professional exterminator. In addition to protecting your home from bed bugs and termites, our Lorton pest control services target:
Indian meal moths
