Our Local Pest Control Service Protects Your Home From Structural Damage That Could Cost You Thousands Of Dollars

Certain insects can seriously damage the structural integrity of your home, destroy furniture, or create holes in wood and walls that hurt the value of your home and you hate to look at. Here are some of the most dangerous bugs that eat away at your house and some information on them.

  • Eastern Subterranean Termites – Termites are the most well-known wood-destroying insect In Central, VA. Local termites live underground and build nests in moist soil. The workers travel to wood sources (your house), by tunneling through walls. The wood is used to feed the entire colony.
  • Carpenter Ants – Most ants in Henrico, VA are just annoying and harmless, but Carpenter Ants will destroy your house or business. The ants will live directly in the wood but don’t eat it. The network of tunnels they build in the wood spread through the home, and they particularly like wood that’s been damaged by water.
  • Powderpost Beetles – The female Powderpost Beetles destroy wood by burrowing it into the wood and laying their eggs. The eggs hatch and the larvae grow into adults. Once grown, the beetles dig out of the wood causing more tunnels. 
  • Carpenter Bees – These bees will generally burrow into your deck’s wood to start a nest. They won’t eat your wood, but the tunnels can damage the structure as multiple generations burrow into it. They are protected and need to be removed safely, especially since wood damage isn’t the only danger. The females will sting if threatened.

Thanks to inflation home food costs have risen 3.5 percent, and restaurant prices have soared. Let’s first look at food costs in your home. If an infestation of cockroaches begins at your house, they can infest the food in your refrigerator, pantry, and other places for food storage. Cockroaches can carry Salmonella, Escherichia Coli, and Listeria Monocytogenes, and it only takes one to pass that disease into your food. Once they get into it, it’s best to throw it all out and then spend tons of money replacing it. 

Restaurants are also suffering from higher food costs, less staffing, and other problems since the pandemic. One cockroach in the wrong place can destroy your entire business. They can destroy your food costs, the business’s reputation, and cause the restaurant to shut down for days while an infestation is cleared. You can risk it when you’re in the restaurant business and it’s best to be proactive in the fight against infestations.
