Pest Control Company Richmond VA
When you’re enjoying the amenities Richmond offers, the last thing you want to deal with is a pest problem. Richmond is a history buff’s paradise. St. John’s Church offers a wide range of 19th and 20th-century architecture, while the Valentine Richmond History Center can take you on a guided tour of the area. Since it’s also the home of Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty, or give me death” speech, you can also see a re-enactment. The Church Hill Association offers a holiday house tour at Christmas, and in March, you can attend the Three-Day Irish Festival.
Pests in your Richmond home aren’t just annoying. They’re embarrassing, and they’re a health hazard, too. They leave a mess, they can do damage, and can also make you and your family sick. Even if you’re seen just one pest, you likely have its entire family taking up residence in your home.

Richmond’s Pest Removal Professionals
You may not realize you have a pest problem right away. Over time, the signs will become obvious—droppings, pellets, stains, etc. By the time you see them, pests have moved into your home and you have an infestation. Removing the pests will help your home stay cleaner, and help reduce the allergies that they can bring with them. We practice Integrated Pest Management to not only reduce and eliminate your pest problem but to keep the pests from getting into your house. Part of IPM is to focus on the exterior of your home to create a barrier that keeps pests outside. This approach helps safeguard your family’s health and reduces any environmental impact.
Pest Solutions is ready to help with pest control and certain wildlife removal:
Indoor and Outdoor Pest Control Serving Richmond
We use exterior barriers to help prevent pests from entering your home, and never spray harmful pesticides inside of your home. If you are still having pest problems in between regular appointments, we’ll be happy to stop by and take care of the problem.
Seeing signs a furry visitor has entered your space? These animals seek out shelter, food, and in the colder months, warmth. Sealing off the entry points keeps them out of your home and makes them go elsewhere. We’ll inspect your home for obvious and not-so-obvious entry points that give them access to your place. If needed, we can also remove animals that have defied to take up residence in your home or attic before we’ve closed their portal.
Call our Richmond office at (804) 406-9606, and we’ll do a free pest assessment. We’ll offer you recommendations and solutions that will best fit your Midtown home’s needs, and can prefer inspections and pest removal for these invaders.
Pest Prevention Service Richmond VA
If your home sits on top of a crawlspace, your home has a greater risk of pest infestation as well as added humidity, mold, mildew and airborne pathogens that can cause a wide range of respiratory and other health problems. Pest Solutions is proud to offer crawlspace encapsulation to eliminate all of these problems by sealing off your home’s crawlspace.
Using a combination of cleaning, disinfecting, termite prevention, sealing and applying a polywrap moisture barrier, your crawlspace will not only be cleaner but stay that way. Your crawlspace will be much cleaner, your home’s air quality will be dryer and better, and your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard. Get rid of pests, especially termites, easy way into your home and add value to your house with the protection of crawlspace encapsulation.
Part of insect prevention is keeping excess moisture out of your home and attic. Your home’s gutters divert water from your roof and drain it away. But these gutters can become cluttered and clogged with leaves and other debris that prevents them from draining. Water can back up and seep into your home, giving pests an incentive to camp in as well as cause other damage. Regularly cleaning these gutters can be a lot of work, and they can become clogged again easily.
Leaf Defier is the easy way to keep your gutters clear. We’ll install this insert that prevents leaves and debris from getting into your gutters but allows the water to flow. It’s an eco-friendly way to protect your home from water and pest damage and can withstand heat, cold, wind, and rain.
By transmitting diseases, mosquitoes cause the deaths of more people than any other animal taxon: over 700,000 each year and as many as half of the people who have ever lived. – Source Wikipedia: Mosquito
Squirrels are rodents too
Squirrels might be cute and chattery, but if they get into your walls or eaves, they can wreak havoc on your home.
Spiders, oh my!
Cobwebs can make your house look unsightly. While spiders can be beneficial, some species can be extremely dangerous, like the Black Widow.

Answers Your Pest Control Questions
You can spray some ant killer and set out a few traps but we have found that while it might make life easier for a couple of days, it doesn’t solve the problem. The ants are coming for the food. I recommend hiring a professional extermination company that will not only spray in the most common areas but will also look for the entry point and seal them up, if possible.
Wasps can be dangerous and will swarm and attack if provoked. Without the proper equipment and proper clothing gear, you risk injury or even death if this happens. The best course of action is to approach the nest at night when the wasps are less active, spray with an industry-approved pesticide and most importantly plan your escape route so you have somewhere you can quickly take cover after targeting the nest. My best advice is instead of DIY methods, call a professional!
Mouse problems in Midlothian are prevalent in the late fall / early winter season. Usually, they come looking for warmth and shelter, and can even gain access into a less than 1/4 inch opening. They can spread disease and also destroy portions of your home. The best remedy is to make sure there are no holes openings in your foundation or walls. Additionally, be sure that any food is stored in sealed containers. You can call our professionals and also employ my favorite method of getting rid of mice: get a cat!
Standing water is the biggest cause of a mosquito problem, especially in Virginia. Even the smallest puddle can harbor hundreds of mosquito larva. Plant pots, downspouts, debris like tires, and shallow holes in the ground are perfect places for mosquitoes to grow. Start out by looking for any place that could potentially collect water. Another option is to have your backyard professionally sprayed.
