Without Pest Control, Your Richmond, VA Home Is At Risk For Thousands Of Dollars In Damage
We have some nasty pests here in Richmond, VA. Mosquitos will bite your kids and pets, spread diseases, and annoy your visitors and guests. Termites will destroy your home’s structure and cost you thousands of dollars in repairs, unless you can catch it early. Rodents and cockroaches will invade your pantries, resulting in hundreds of dollars of food wasted. What’s crazy is that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Carpenter Ants can destroy your house as well as termites, wasps can sting and put your kids in the hospital, and a copperhead snake bite could kill. As if this wasn’t the worst, pesticides can be dangerous to your pets, kids, and the outside environment. So, how do you deal with a pest infestation safely? Greenshield Pest Control has proprietary, environmentally friendly techniques to keep your home, family, and the environment safe from these nasty insects and invasive wildlife.
Signs You Have A Pest Problem In Your Home
Droppings are the most obvious sign pests may be living in your house. Generally, droppings won’t help you determine which insect they come from due to size, while at the same time size will let you know if you have rodents. If there are enough droppings that they are easily recognized, the infestation has probably grown beyond a mere nuisance.
Footprints are a rare, but tell-tale sign your home has a problem with invasive wildlife. Rats and mice can track mud and debris into the home, exposing their entry point. This is rare as rodents and other wildlife will prefer to stay hidden within the walls, attics, or basements. But, if you are able to see some, it’s a sign they are active in your home.
The most obvious sign of termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, or powderpost beetles, is physical damage. Each one can damage wood and furniture so it’s unsightly, or dangerous to the homes’ structure. Sometimes the damage is already going to cost thousands to fix before its visible, and other times the damage is easy to identify.

Our Local Pest Control Service Protects Your Home From Structural Damage That Could Cost You Thousands Of Dollars
Your homes’ structure faces many outside forces that can damage it including hurricanes, ice, lightning, and insects. Termites and other wood destroying insects won’t just attack the wooden structure of your home, but can destroy antique furniture and other property. This next list will talk about some of the most common here in Richmond.
- 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 Richmond, 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.
