Why Now Is the Time to Protect Your D.C. Home Against Rodents

While rats and mice are always a potential hazard for D.C. homeowners, they’re never a bigger threat than in fall and winter months. Like all animals, rodents are always in search of food, water, and a warm place to take shelter inside. Unfortunately, in the colder months when these resources become more difficult to find in nature, your home can become an appealing target to rodent invaders. If you’re worried about rodents getting into your home, or are already experiencing signs of a rodent infestation, don’t wait: call the experts at American Pest today and find out how a professional rodent exclusion treatment can keep your home protected.

Mosquito Control in Washington DC

Mosquitoes are probably one of the most complained about and recognized pests around, especially in the Washington DC area. These common pests are not just prolific breeders and frustrating pests, but they are also vectors for many diseases. Protecting ourselves and our loved ones from these insects is very important and can be done quite easily with the help of a pest professional. Here are the 4 basic parts of getting protected:

  • Allow NO standing water outdoors. Mosquitoes only need a small amount of water to lay their eggs in. Things such as tires, buckets, plant pots, and toys are common culprits. Be sure that your gutter and all water runoff systems are working properly. Our mosquito control services include placing mosquito dunks in areas where standing water can't be dumped easily.
  • Personal protection has a few steps. Try to limit your early morning and evening outdoor activities because these are mosquitoes’ most active times. Cover up as much of yourself as possible with long sleeves and pants. Use a mosquito repellent that contains DEET.  Our mosquito treatments decrease the mosquito activity for you, helping to lower the risk of mosquito bites.
  • Make your home a fortress against mosquitoes! Repair or replace damaged insect screens on windows, doors, and vents. Do the same for any exterior door bottoms or weather-stripping. Close your curtains at night to lessen the light that mosquitoes are attracted to. If one of our pest professionals notices such entry points, they will bring it to your attention and recommend solutions.
  • Get real protection with the mosquito and tick program from the experts here at American Pest. Believe it or not, we can help you to have significantly fewer mosquitoes on your property. Get the facts on real mosquito control by partnering up with the professional team here at American Pest.
