Why Termite Inspections Are So Important

Termites are famously secretive pests. Deemed silent destroyers for their ability to wreak havoc on homes and businesses for years without detection. In fact, the only obvious signs of termites tend to be the extensive damage they have caused. If you wait until you begin to notice termite damage to take action, you could be facing expensive repairs. Termites eat our structures from the inside out, and by the time damage is obvious on the surface, it's likely that extensive damage has already occurred. 

You can get ahead of termites with annual termite inspections by a qualified professional. Experts can spot the early signs of termites before they have a chance to inflict substantial damage. Yearly inspections can safeguard your home from termite damage and ensure early detection and elimination of any termites that are found.

How To Limit Your Mosquito Exposure Risk In Washington, D.C.

Mosquitoes are easily one of the most obnoxious pests in Washington, D.C., but did you know that they also top the charts as one of the world's most dangerous animals? Mosquitoes spread a wide variety of dangerous diseases, including Zika virus, malaria, West Nile virus, dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, encephalitis, and tularemia.

Whenever possible, it's best to do what you can to avoid mosquito bites. Some of the best ways to do this include:

  • Eliminating standing water.
  • Fixing leaks and maintaining drainage systems.
  • Keeping grass cut short and landscaping well maintained.
  • Wearing long sleeved shirts and long pants when spending time outdoors.
  • Using bug spray containing DEET.
  • Avoiding being outdoors during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Installing fans in outdoor seating areas.
  • Installing screens on windows and doors. 

If you are doing everything that you can to avoid mosquito bites and you still hear them buzzing around your head, it may be time to look into professional mosquito reduction services from Womack Pest Control. Call today to find out more about how we can reduce your risks of dangerous mosquito activity on your property.
