We provide preventative pest control services to neighborhoods throughout Yorktown.
Yorktown is a historic community located in Virginia’s Tidewater region. Situated along the York River, Yorktown experiences hot, humid summers and frequent precipitation. Unfortunately, this combination of moisture and heat makes Yorktown the ideal habitat for pests like mosquitoes, bedbugs, roaches, and more. That’s where Pest Authority of Williamsburg comes in. We don’t just remove pests from your home; we keep them out for good. Our patented Barrier 360 treatment creates a wall around your property, proactively safeguarding your home from dozens of insect species.
Ants can seem to multiply overnight, but an ant invasion starts long before you see them. These social insects actually leave pheromone trails that guide members of their colony to food sources. This gives a single ant the power to lead thousands more into your home. At Pest Authority of Williamsburg, we’ll shut ants down before they have a chance to colonize on your property. Our treatments stop carpenter ants, red ants, odorous house ants, and other ants native to Yorktown in their tracks.
In the past decade, bed bug populations have exploded in East Coast cities like Yorktown. Once they get inside, these small, oval-shaped insects tend to nest in mattresses and bed sheets. They do this because they feed on the blood of sleeping, warm-blooded animals. Come morning, their bites show up as itchy red dots on the skin. Bed bugs have a lifespan of seven to twelve months. When left untreated, they reproduce and spread to other areas of the home.
There are many species of beetle native to the Yorktown area. Locust borers, whirlagig beetles, Asian ladybird beetles, and American carrion beetles are among the most common breeds. While many species enter the home to seek out stored grain and packaged foods, others eat wood, fabric, and garden plants. Avoid damage to your stored food, clothes, and furniture by calling Pest Authority of Yorktown today.
If you spot a roach in your home, there’s a good chance you’ll find many more lurking later. Known for their resilience and their ability to survive on limited food sources, cockroaches plague homes across York and James City County. Roaches often nest behind refrigerators, under kitchen cabinets, and in other compact places. They’re fast, able to sustain injury, and extremely hard to kill. Because they’re also known to spread both E. Coli and salmonella, it’s important to treat cockroach issues as soon as you can.
Earwigs are small insects with pinchers on the end of their abdomens. These nocturnal pests live in moist, dark places like basements and crawlspaces. They’re omnivores who feed on plant life, debris, and other insects. Although earwigs can fly, they rarely do so. They enter homes to seek out sources of food.
There are a number of steps you can take to keep your Yorktown home pest-free. While professional pest control is necessary for fighting larger infestations, these simple tips can alleviate small-scale issues.
