Manassas is a historic location known primarily for the major Civil War battles that took place here, as well as for the Hylton Performing Arts Center and Ben Lomond Historic Site showcasing Federal-style plantation homes. Serving as the county seat of Prince William County, Manassas is a beautiful locale that attracts thousands of residents. Unfortunately, the climate and temperatures in the region also mean it attracts a less savory guest: pests.

Utilizing the latest eco-friendly pest control practices and techniques, we are ready to assist you in achieving and maintaining a pest-free property.
A growing concern in recent years, ticks are becoming more widespread throughout the US, and they carry a host of dangerous diseases with them. Ticks are known to transmit Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, babesiosis, anaplasmosis, and more. They’ve also been known to cause red meat allergies in some people.
The hot, humid climate we experience during Manassas’ summers provides the perfect environment for ticks to thrive. They need a lot of moisture to survive and are most active during the warmest months of the year, giving them ample time to threaten the health of Manassas families.
Keep the risk of contracting a tick-borne illness low by keeping ticks off your property. Although there's no way to eliminate them entirely, tick treatments will significantly reduce the number of ticks in your yard. Furthermore, pest control can help keep the rodents and wildlife off your lawn that often bring ticks with them.
American Pest offers tick treatments performed by service technicians who are specially trained in the biology and habits of ticks. We customize our treatments to your property's unique landscape. If you have a lot of wildlife or rodent activity around your property, we can help with that as well. This will not only prevent the problems associated with rodent or wildlife infestations but also lower the number of ticks around your property.
For the most part, ants in Manassas are nuisance pests that are annoying and cause disruption to regular routines in homes. Odorous house ants, often known as sugar ants, and pavement ants are two common types of nuisance ants in Manassas. They’ll invade your home or build unsightly hills all along your driveway, but they won’t cause major problems or health concerns.
However, not all ants are nuisance ants. The most common ant in Manassas that causes serious trouble for homeowners is the carpenter ant. Carpenter ants are the large black ants, sometimes with wings, that you see wandering around indoors and out. These ants chew tunnels through wooden structures, including the ones in your home. Left to their own devices, carpenter ants can cause serious structural damage.
Luckily, whether you have nuisance ants or carpenter ants invading your house, American Pest can take care of them all. We’ll identify the type of ants, determine where they are and how they’re getting in, and eliminate them at the source, ensuring they don’t return.
