There’s a variety of pests in Northern Virginia that you may find in or around your home:

  • Earwigs
  • Boxelder bugs

Why are there more pests during the spring?

  • Warmer temperatures
  • Things are starting to bloom, and more food supplies
  • Breeding during the spring

In the spring, pests, and wildlife are becoming more active. You will start to see more insects inside your home such as ants, and there might be an increase in rodents and snakes on your property. It can be difficult to predict what types of pests will get into your home and it is best to be proactive with their treatment. People usually think of pest control when they are already facing a pest issue versus when they are trying to prevent a pest issue. 

Pest prevention is important because pest problems can get very out of hand quickly. For the most part, pests can be a challenge to manage. In order to combat pests, it can take a great bit of time and different techniques to properly get them under control. Mice for example are particularly difficult to control inside homes. These populations are consistently growing because they reproduce so often and have several babies in each litter.

Ant populations can increase as the temperature warms up. Ants can get into the home because people will leave their doors and windows open more often, so ants can get in.
