Mice and rats have the potential to cause a ton of damage to your home, as they love to chew through things like insulation, wood, wiring, piping, and more.

Our Richmond rodent control specialists can perform a thorough check of your property to identify entry points, remove the pests, and keep them from coming back.

Richmond Ant Control

There are more than 12,000 species of ants in the world, with plenty of variation in the way ants look. However, ants share certain common features that make them fairly easy to recognize. Ants are six-legged insects with narrow waists, large heads, and elbowed antennae. Amazingly strong for their size, they are typically somewhere between 2 millimeters and 25 millimeters long and black, brown, yellow, or reddish in color. When you spot one ant, you're likely to see another nearby. These social insects live cooperatively in large colonies.

The problem with ants, besides them being a huge nuisance, is that they can contaminate food and water, making them unfit for human consumption. Certain species also bring additional troubles. For example, carpenter ants can damage homes as they chew through the wood to build their nests. Other species, including fire ants, bite or sting. At Accel Pest & Termite Control, we understand how important it is to properly identify the type of ant and target the problem at its source: the colony. We also recognize that different situations require different solutions. That's why we only send out highly-skilled, experienced pest control professionals who have the knowledge and experience necessary to create a customized strategy that will provide effective ant control for your property.

Richmond Roach Control

Cockroaches can grow to over two inches long. They have six legs and two antennae. Some have wings as well. Since they spread disease, they can become health hazards to humans, especially when they infest food in your kitchen. They enter your home through drain pipes or other open cracks in walls or floors and search for food and a warm and moist environment. Since they reproduce rapidly, a large problem can develop in a short period of time. Besides spreading diseases, cockroach droppings or old skins often aggravate allergies and can cause asthma attacks.

Richmond Spider Control

Certain spiders like moist areas, especially in basements and crawl spaces. Others enjoy warm and dark locations, including air vents and attics. These pests commonly enter homes through cracks in windows and doors. Although most spiders are harmless, they can bite, which leads to red welts or allergic reactions. Richmond is home to more dangerous spiders as well. For example, the brown recluse spider can make a person extremely ill. This spider loves to hide behind furniture and among clothing that has been packed away. Bites begin red, turn black, and can spread to the rest of the body. If untreated, a person may experience flu-like symptoms. To prevent an infestation, it is best to seal entry points and remove hiding places in your basement or garage.

Mosquito Control in Richmond, VA

Mosquitoes are so much more than just an annoyance - they are also carriers of some of the world's most dangerous diseases. Richmond residents know how humid and buggy it can get in our area and understand how critical it is to keep mosquitoes under control.

Tip: Mosquitoes proliferate around standing water, so make sure to eliminate these areas around your property as best you can.
