Don't Let Rodents Spread Disease, Contaminate Your Food, Or Destroy Your Property

Rodents are generally not a problem for the average household in Central, VA. But, after natural disasters they are inclined to search for a more stable area. That means hurricanes, tornadoes, or other freak weather events can cause a migration of rodents, and they could use your home as a safe haven. When they decide to use your home, they will build a colony and reproduce, and that’s when your family becomes vulnerable to the diseases they spread. Their dander and urine contain allergens that can trigger asthma, and their bites put more than 9,000 people in the hospital each year. If you see signs of a rodent, don’t just trust the house cat to catch it. Give Greenshield Pest Control a call so we can remove the rodents and set up preventative measures to ensure they don’t come back.

Nick helped take care of an unexpected issue for me that I discovered once I went under the house to repair a pipe - camel crickets and a black snake. I can not stand those spider looking things and I could only locate the snake skin, not the snake. Nick swiftly handled the crickets and located the black snake wedged between the foundation blocks. Awesome service, friendly, great attitude, and very professional. Would recommend Nick to everyone!

I was having issues with my crawl space in regards to humidity and fungus as well as not enough insulation in my attic. Nick came out and took care of the inspection, he was great! He pointed out issues that I had no idea of. That and it was thousands cheaper than other quotes I had recieved. The techs who came out were great, very friendly and professional, and did great work. Thank you Nick and Greenshield for helping me better my home.

Local Rodent Control FAQ

Do I really need to hire a company to handle my rodent problem?

There are do it yourself solutions for just a couple rodents. But, if they go undetected long enough, two mice can reproduce and end up being over 4,000 in only one year. Then it can cost thousands of dollars to control the rodent problem. Here’s some reasons you might need a professional.

  • The size of your property means a lot. You might not have the crew to search the entire property and locate the problem before the rodents have reproduced.
  • The infestations extent is the next reason you might need us. If it has already grown, you might need tons of traps, bait, and cleanup. You could end up fighting a losing battle.
  • If it’s hard to reach the infestation within your house’s or business’s walls. You could never fully solve the problem. We have the ability to seal off entry points, fix the damage, remove the feces, and ensure every last rodent is removed from the property.
