The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recently released their bi-annual Bug Barometer report predicting what pests Americans can expect to see in different regions across the country. Given the exorbitant amounts of rain this winter and early spring, pest populations will see a spike the remainder of this spring and summer. Here’s what they’re predicting for the southeast region of the U.S. and how you can prepare.


Mosquitoes breed in high moisture environments. Stock up on repellent and expect to see an increased presence of mosquitoes in the DMV area. Now more than ever, this year would be a fantastic time to sign up for our mosquito abatement program to protect your family from the diseases mosquitoes carry like West Nile virus. Remember if you’re going outdoors to use repellent, wear long clothing if possible, and wear light-colored clothing (they’re more attracted to dark colors).


Termites are another pest that flourish in wet conditions. Protect the infrastructure and foundation of your home from termite damage by investing in a termite prevention system. We offer the Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination System with Always Active™ that is top of the line and an affordable way to protect your home from thousands of dollars of infrastructural damage. Don’t forget that termite damage is NOT covered by your home insurance.

Cockroaches and Ants

NPMA predicts more ants and cockroaches seeking shelter indoors. Reduce clutter and ensure your food is stored in sealed containers so they aren’t drawn into your home. These two pests are also covered under our all of our home pest protection plans. Explore which option is the best fit for you.
