Virginia Beach’s beachfront location draws tourists and pests alike to the city. Ants are especially common in Virginia Beach. Sugar ants, one of the most common household ants, thrive here. These creatures make their way inside homes and can even build nests in the walls. While sugar ants are more of a nuisance than anything, fire ants are also common. They’re known for their painful, blistering bites. No one likes fire ants on their property. Carpenter ants can also cause problems. These ants destroy homes by tunneling through wood and foundational materials. No matter what kind, ants are a pain to deal with.
Spiders frequent Virginia Beach homes as well. House spiders and wolf spiders are two of the most common spiders residents will see on their property. Luckily, these arachnids are not especially dangerous, as their venom is not potent enough to harm most people. However, there have been rare cases of adverse reactions to these spider bites.
Pest control is the most efficient way to get rid of ants and spiders. Spiders eat insects, so the less ants and other insects in the home, the lower the chances of spiders getting in. If you find these pests in your home, call Fox Pest Control. They’ll be gone in no time.
