The Dangers Of Not Regularly Checking For Pests

Property Damage

If you notice damage to your home’s wood call someone ASAP. Ignoring termites and other wood-destroying insects can cause significant damage to your home over time. On average property owners in Virginia can spend upwards of $3,000 to repair damages when an infestation is left untreated. Not to mention the costs to remove the infestation.

If you don't have a pest inspection, rodent urine and other droppings can get into the air and worsen asthma. Here we see a child using an inhaler.

Health Problems

Depending on the type of pest, infestations can cause health problems. Cockroaches, bed bugs, and rodents can cause allergic reactions. Certain pests can also spread diseases such as Hantavirus and Salmonella. Finally, droppings and body parts from roaches, as well as urine from rodents can cause asthma to flare up.

Food Contamination

Pest control is vital when maintaining your pantry’s safety. Rodents, cockroaches, and flies can contaminate food and countertops. Some diseases that pests can spread to your food are Listeria, Salmonella, E. Coli, Hantavirus, and Leptospirosis. Plus, if you see bugs in your food, you will throw it all away!

Friday, 4/12/24 technician Cameron Joseph came to my house for my regular maintenance and mosquito appointment. What a wonderful representative of Green Shield he is. I can’t say enough about how professional, knowledgeable, pleasant, and polite Cameron is. I felt very comfortable with him as he explained everything, and listened to my requests and concerns. He was even concerned for my dog’s safety. A good experience; thanks Cameron.

A mosquito full of blood and currently biting someone. Many people view mosquitos as merely a nuisance, but they pose a health hazard as well. Mosquitos in Virginia can transmit a number of diseases including West Nile Virus, Yellow Fever, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), Dengue Fever, and Chikungunya.

When you choose Greenshield to provide mosquito control around your home you and your family will greatly benefit. Outdoor BBQs won’t be halted by tons of mosquitos, kids can play outside without the risk of itchy bites, and yardwork won’t be interrupted by flying bloodsuckers.

Our mosquito management includes monthly or seasonal mosquito reduction services. Shady, cooler areas are treated with products that hinder reproduction in adult mosquitoes. The products we use affect the mosquitos that are still in the larval stage as well as the adults.

View our mosquito control page for more information.

Group of termites working chewing wood. All pests are a nuisance, but termites can pose a serious threat to the structural integrity of your home and to your bank account. In the United States, it’s reported termite damage causes an average of $5 billion dollars of damage a year.

In Virginia, we have subterranean and swarming termites. Subterranean Termites start colonies underground and have a caste system of workers, soldiers, a king and queen, and reproductive swarmers. The swarmers are winged members of the colony that fly away, mate, and begin new colonies. The peak season for swarmers in Virginia is March through June, and when you see them around your home, it’s the first sign a problem is brewing.

But, luckily Greenshield has the solution to your termite problems. 

A termite-free inspection is required before a warranty can take effect. It covers your home in the event of a termite infestation and covers up to 1 million dollars in termite damages while under our warranty.

A close up photo of a cockroach. Cockroaches are disgusting! Although one or two is not necessarily dangerous to your health, seeing one or two can turn into a massive infestation FAST. Once that happens they are nearly impossible to exterminate.

Cockroaches (German cockroaches are the most prevalent around Central, VA), regularly carry bacteria, pathogens, and parasites. They can also spread their fecal droppings across floors, countertops, and your pantry! Some of the diseases you can contract are Campylobacteriosis, Cholera, Giardia, Dysentery, Gastroenteritis, Leprosy, Listeriosis, and Salmonella.

Cockroaches can also increase asthma attacks because when they shed, their skins are left around the house to break up into smaller irritants that get into the air.

Many people think cockroaches are a symptom of a dirty home but, they are just as happy to invade a clean home. They will hitchhike in bags, boxes, and secondhand appliances. Due to their highly invasive nature, German Roaches are nearly impossible to eliminate with a basic pest control plan. We provide a more extensive service to guarantee the eradication of German Roaches in the home.

Contact us at (804) 798-1725 for help with cockroaches.

Squirrels can damage your home and nest within the walls. In this photo we see a squirrels nest built into the wall of a house.

Rodents, birds, and other wildlife can damage your home and cause health problems. Mice and squirrels may look cute, but they are known to spread Hantavirus, Salmonellosis, Tularemia, Leptospirosis & other diseases. What’s worse is two mice can reproduce and become 4,000 mice in just one year. Mice and rats can chew wires, clog pipes, destroy drywall, and urinate all over your home.

In Central, VA, we have multiple species of squirrels that can invade different parts of your house, but they mostly love to dig holes in your yard to store food. What you want to look out for is chewing damage around your house. Their teeth don’t stop growing and they like to chew on bark and your home to keep their teeth under control.

Birds can also be a nuisance. They like to nest in gutters, attics, chimneys, and vents. Their droppings can even eat away at paint and corrode concrete around your property. Breathing in spores from droppings can also lead to infections and asthma attacks.

Don’t want wildlife as rent-free roommates? We can safely and ethically trap, remove, seal entry points and sanitize.

Wasps nest hanging from a house's porch. Here in Ashland, VA, and around the state, we have bees, hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets. All of them can sting and cause painful welts and allergic reactions. But, stinging insects can do damage to your household you might not have thought of.

Carpenter Bees don’t sting but they love to excavate tunnels in decks, siding, porches, and eaves to build nests. Overtime, they will have created many tunnels and the fix will be expensive.

Stinging insects can also swarm in defense of their home. Children, pets, and yourself can accidentally trigger the nest and cause the insects to swarm you. These swarms can cause extreme allergic reactions to multiple stings and even death.

Greenshield will control your wasp and stinging insect problem with a thorough investigation. We will identify the nests, and remove the insects. Honeybees are a protected species. Greenshield will also remove them safely and relocate them.

The copperhead snake lives in Ashland, VA, and around Central, VA. In this photo we see a copperhead wrapped around a baseball. If you’re out doing yardwork and recognize snake skins, tracks, or holes, then you could have a snake problem. In Virginia, snakes start to appear in the spring time, and can pose a significant threat.

Most snakes around Ashland, VA, aren’t a problem. But, we do have venomous copperheads. A copperhead bite can be especially dangerous to adults with underlying health issues, children, and pets.

If you do see a snake don’t kill it! Snakes are illegal to kill in the state of Virginia. When you see signs of a snake give Greenshield a call.

Our PCPs (Pest Control Professionals), will come out and inspect your property, identify snake holes and skins, and relocate the snakes to a safe location. At this safe location, they can continue to benefit the environment by controlling rodents and other invasive populations.

This man's hand is covered with welts from multiple bed bug bites. “Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite!” 

Many of us have heard this phrase as a bedtime joke, but the reality of bed bugs is no joke! We take bed bugs seriously and treatment is not a one-and-done service.

Our bed bug treatment uses a natural biochemical spray that we guarantee will kill the bed bugs. 

Bed bugs are not a symptom of a dirty home. They can hitch rides in luggage, clothing, and purses from hotel rooms and make your mattress their new home!

We work with our clients, making sure they understand preparation instructions and the treatment plan.

We can even return to inspect and retreat to be sure bed bugs never return.

It’s important to figure out how the bed bugs got into the home in the first place, to avoid re-infestation.

How necessary is pest control and pest prevention?

Most of the time if you see a single fly, yellow jacket, or ant it isn’t an issue. But, sometimes these are signs of a hidden problem. However, if you find a termite or bed bug you probably already have an infestation brewing. This is why we offer free, same-day pest inspections and $100 off your first treatment.

What pest control services do you offer?

We offer a range of pest prevention, removal, and extermination services including:

If you’re not sure whether your pest problem falls under one of these services, we can still help. Our general pest control plans cover any problem you might have with the pests of Virginia.

How safe is pest control for babies and pets?

This depends on the level and location of the infestation plus the type of pest. Greenshield Home & Pest Solutions is eco-conscious and always uses natural pest prevention and extermination solutions. To be safe, we recommend staying out of the house for a bit after it has been sprayed. Your pest management professional will be able to answer better after evaluating your situation.

What's the average cost for pest control?

The answer varies depending on whether you want a one-time pest control treatment, ongoing treatments, the type of pest, and the level of infestation. But, in Central, VA, you will find costs ranging from $150 – $500 for one-time treatments, and $50 – $200 for monthly treatments. It all depends on the situation.

What are the benefits of ongoing pest prevention?

We’re sure you didn’t sit down today and say, “You know what, I’m going to hire a pest management professional to ensure pests are never an issue in my house!”

Thinking you will never need pest control can also result in thousands and thousands of dollars in property damage, health problems, and wasted food.

Most people don’t even know they have termites until structural damage is prevalent. After your inspection, your PMP (Pest Management Professional) can discuss the options for ongoing pest prevention.

What does it mean when you say you provide eco-conscious pest control?

Traditional pesticides and chemicals used for pest control are horrible for the environment. Year after year these sprays kill off insects that are good for the environment like honeybees and butterflies.

An eco-conscious pest control company uses a lot of biological and environmentally safe solutions. Preventing infestations and keeping you, your family, pets, and the environment safe is important to us.
