As spring approaches, so do certain pests. Virginia offers bugs that bite, sting, eat your house and may even carry diseases that could be a danger to you and your family. Let’s look at some of Central Virginia’s Springtime pests that may cause you some issues this season.
Ants can be very difficult to eliminate. Some of the most common ants found in Virginia are Argentine ants, carpenter ants, odorous house ants, pavement ants, and red imported fire ants. These ants can become a nuisance in kitchens and bathrooms when they invade your home. Once you find ants in your home, it may be extremely difficult to get rid of them. They are easy to kill, but new ones keep coming back if they are finding food and water. They can come into your home through extremely small spaces. Keeping the kitchen tidy and cleaning pet food and water spaces often might help and keeping trees and bushes trimmed back and away from window sills may help.

Wasps don’t always pose a threat, but they can build nests in inconvenient places resulting in unwanted encounters. They can be dangerous if one has an allergic reaction to their stings, potentially sending someone to the emergency room. Wasps can sting you more than once and often do. They can nest inside your walls or outside your home – typically wherever they can find shade. You can deter wasps by keeping an eye out and destroying the beginnings of nest building and taking away any sweet food sources they might be attracted to.
