World Pest Day Brings Awareness This Summer
If you are looking for a town that offers everything a large city does but has the close-knit family-friendly atmosphere of a small town, then Takoma Park, Maryland is the perfect place for you! Takoma Park has a bustling downtown, an active business district, quaint farmers markets, and lovely neighborhoods. Residents love living in Takoma Park, and the pest control professionals here at American Pest love keeping homes and businesses free from the many pests that also live in Takoma Park. Rodents are a common pest problem here in Takoma Park, and they take every opportunity given to them to invade properties and benefit from the easy access to food, water, and safe shelter that Takoma properties provide. At American Pest, we are tough on rodents and have the pest control services needed to eliminate current problems with rodents and keep them from coming back!
Rodents may look small (some only weigh a few grams), fluffy, and relatively harmless; but the reality is that rodents, including mice, are very dangerous to have living in and around your Takoma Park home and business. Some of the many reasons why rodents and mice are so dangerous are listed below.
Rodents can cause significant and costly damage to homes and businesses. They use their sharp front incisors to chew through wires, plumbing pipes, insulation, walls, and flooring. These damages can lead to fires, water leaks, and even mold and mildew issues.
Rodents chew through and destroy property like clothing, inventory, furniture, pictures, and books.
Rats and mice leave trails of urine and feces throughout your home contaminating food, utensils, pantries, and kitchen areas.
Rats run along the walls and furniture of the buildings they are infesting leaving behind grease and dirt marks.
Hantavirus, rate bite fever, leptospirosis, dysentery, and salmonellosis are all examples of diseases that rodents can introduce to homes and transmit to people. These diseases can be very serious and make people very ill.
The best way to protect your Takoma Park home from mice and other rodents is to put in place the Preferred Care plan from American Pest.

To protect your business and its reputation from the damages that rodents and other pests can cause, we have worked in conjunction with our staff of entomologists to develop our year-round ProCare program. The ProCare program targets a variety of nuisance, damaging, and dangerous pests that can invade commercial properties.
At American Pest, we protect commercial properties from pest through our S.T.A.R. approach to pest management. Our professionals start by performing a survey (S) of your property to locate pest activity and entrance points; they will then perform targeted (T) treatments to eliminate pest problems. After treatment is complete, we analyze (A) the treatment outcome and a report (R) of the findings will be given to you to help prevent future problems with pests in your Takoma Park facility.
In addition to our ProCare program, we provide the following pest control services to help protect Takoma Park businesses from pests:
