Wood Destroying Pest Control In The Washington D.C. Area

Womack Pest Control Proudly Defends The Washington D.C. Area From Wood Eating Pests

Termites aren't the only things wanting to make a snack out of your home or business. Carpenter bees, carpenter ants, powder post beetles, and old house borers all want a seat at the table, whether your home or business is old or new. And like their termite siblings, they can and will cause immense damage to your home or business.

Womack Pest Control is honored to step into the fray, providing pest control for Washington D.C. area locals with wood-destroying pest treatments. We've fought a running battle against home-wrecking bugs since our company was founded in 1943, and we've never lost a fight. Serving Montgomery County, Prince George County and the greater Maryland area, we provide wood-eating pest control solutions for homes, office buildings, schools, and apartments.

Tips To Decrease The Chances That You Will Have To Deal With Wood Destroying Pests

Below are some of the most efficient ways to protect against a wood-destroying pest infestation:

  • Keep outside wood painted. When bugs see unpainted, weathered wood, they hear dinner bells.
  • Keep basements, crawl spaces, and attics well ventilated and dry. Wet means bugs.
  • Repair leaking faucets outside the home if necessary.
  • Direct AC-unit runoff away from the house instead of letting water build up close to the outside walls.
  • Repair or replace damaged shingles immediately.
  • Promptly seal all holes, gaps, cracks, and splits in exterior walls. Also, repair loose mortar around the foundation and windows.
  • Inspect and repair or replace all weather stripping around the home regularly. If the weatherstripping is letting water in, bugs will soon follow.
  • Store firewood at least 20-feet away from the house and at least 5-inches off the ground.
  • Keep mulch away from the foundation. Wood-destroying pests might come for a mulch appetizer and then stay for the main course – your house or business.
  • Have a professional pest inspection at least every three years, but once a year is better. The sooner a problem is identified, the sooner that problem can be eliminated.

Though these are good practices for decreasing the chances of encountering wood-destroying pests around your home or business, these pesky critters can still come calling. When that happens, don't worry. Call or email us instead. We can help you show wood-destroying pests the door, just like we've done since 1943.
