Top Pests in Harrisonburg, VA

Heavy rainfall creates damp areas around the historic homes in Charlottesville, VA, which can attract carpenter ants. Named for the tunnels they excavate within wood, these pests target damp and water-damaged timber. Porch pillars, windowsills, eaves, roofs, doorframes, and other areas exposed to the elements are possible infestation sites. While these pests work slowly, their large colonies often stay within the same home for years, amassing damage over time. Spiders can also get into homes. While generally considered beneficial because of all the insects they eat, they can be a nuisance.
Charlottesville residents deal with fabric and pantry pests, as well. Carpet beetles are insects that attack animal based products. Wool carpets, furs, hides, feathers, and silk are all favorite meals for these pests’ larvae. Unlike carpet beetles, flour beetles and cigarette beetles specifically target pantry goods such as flour, spices, cereals, and pet food. As both pantry and fabric pests are small and inconspicuous, infestations can be difficult to spot before damage is significant.
