As much as we don’t like to think about it, pests are a fact of life. It’s one thing to know that bugs and rodents are roaming around outside, but it’s another story when they enter the home. That’s where Home Pro Pest Control comes into play. We help eliminate pests promptly and take steps to prevent pest problems in the future. Some of the most common pests that we deal with in the Hampton Roads area are ants, mosquitoes, termites, and rats.
Ant infestations are very common and can pop up anywhere, even in the cleanest of homes. Typically, the homeowner will try to take care of the ants on their own at first, but after multiple tries, they resort to calling in the professionals. To eliminate ant infestations, Home Pro Pest Control conducts a full inspection of the house and interviews the homeowner on the ant activity. We create an exterior barrier to prevent ants from entering the house, apply an outdoor treatment to kill the ant colony, and use small, targeted treatments to control ants inside of the house. Our promise: Ants are gone within 24 hours and won’t return for a year after treatment!
The Hampton Roads area has more than 35 different species of mosquitos. They live and breed in containers, saltwater marshes, freshwater storm systems, and temporary woodland pools. Homeowners can help to prevent mosquitoes by removing standing water from their yards, particularly after a rainstorm. For further prevention, Home Pro Pest Control uses a safe and effective solution that kills mosquitoes fast and controls them for up to 30 days. Automatic mosquito control treatments continue monthly so that homeowners can enjoy the outdoors in peace without having to swat away mosquitoes.
Termites can be one of the mostly costly pest infestations for homeowners in the Hampton Roads area. Not only are they a nuisance but they can severely damage your home. Be on the lookout for damaged drywall, termite droppings, and mud tubes that run into your house; these are signs of a termite infestation. Home Pro offers free yearly termite inspections for homeowners. Should termites be found in the home, a professional treatment plan is needed to eliminate these pests. Structural repairs should also be made to ensure the safety of the home. Home Pro Pest Control can help with both.
Rats have become a significant problem in Hampton Roads. There have been noticeable increases in rat infestations in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach, and Norfolk and no neighborhood has been immune to the problem. Many times, rats will take up residence for weeks or months before anyone notices. To deal with rats, Home Pro Pest Control first seals points of entry to the house, then places bait outside in tamper-resistant boxes. Homeowners can then schedule follow-up services for Home Pro Pest Control to check the traps regularly at no charge.
While we wish that no one had to deal with pests, they are a reality that we live with each day. Let Home Pro Pest Control keep your home pest-free with our customized, seasonal plans. Call us at (757) 499-1078 for more information or to book a consultation with a service pro.
