Insects and mice generally enter Short Pump homes through very small cracks and crevices in the foundation, exterior walls, and around windows and doors that you probably don’t even realize are there. Once they navigate their way inside, pests cause a lot of trouble. First of all, they are a huge nuisance. Nobody wants to deal with any sort of pest - big or small, scaly or fluffy - crawling through their home. Pests are also damaging. They contaminate food, and they can introduce bacteria and diseases into your home. The safest and most effective way to continuously control pests in your home is to put in place a professional year-round pest control program.
American Pest offers a number of year-round pest control protection to help meet the needs of any Short Pump home and homeowner. Our Preferred Care, Preferred Care Plus, and Preferred Care Complete pest care plans offer seasonal (4) treatments for existing pest problems, protection against more than 30 common household pests, services to seal pest entry points around your home (remember those tiny cracks and crevices) and provide customers with rodent monitoring and control services. The Preferred Care Plus plan also provides termite monitoring services and the Preferred Care Complete plan provides termites monitoring and control services!
people are constantly traveling around a major city like Richmond, Virginia. With Short Pump located at the intersection of Three Chopt Road, Richmond Turnpike and Pouncey Tract Road, bed bugs may be inadvertently hitchhiking along this region. At American Pest, we offer the following bed bug control services:
K-9 bed bug detection- A K-9 inspection can help to positively identify a bed bug infestation in your home. These highly trained dogs and their sensitive noses can find adult bed bugs and the more difficult to see eggs and nymphs.
Bed bug heat treatments- Using heat to kill bed bugs is effective, non-invasive, and eco-friendly. Special mobile heaters are used to maintain a specific temperature in your home which kills all the stages of bed bugs.
Conventional pesticide treatments
Mattress and box spring encasements to help contain and prevent future problems.
At American Pest, we take pride in the fact that we are our region’s termite exterminator of choice. We want our Short Pump customers to feel peace of mind even in the midst of a termite infestation.

At American Pest we protect properties from termites through the following services:
A thorough termite inspection performed by one of our knowledgeable termite inspectors.
The installation of the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System, a discreet system that utilizes non-invasive bait stations to immediately start eliminating the termite infestation.

Regular maintenance of the Sentricon system that has been installed on your property.
Both ticks and mosquitoes are parasitic pests that feed on the blood of people and animals. They can also carry and transmit a variety of very serious bacteria and diseases. The best way to protect your family from these dangerous pests is to put in place a control plan before they have a chance to build their numbers.
Triggered by the warmer rainy weather of early spring, ticks and mosquitoes become active in March, increasing their numbers throughout the summer until late October when the weather cools off for the fall and winter months. To combat both mosquitoes and ticks, our professionals will treat your Short Pump property a total of 6-7 times during the active season of March through October. Treatment includes an inspection of your Short Pump property, treatment using a specialized misting system, and the use of biological mosquito larvicide to help limit mosquito breeding areas on your property.
