Roanoke Pest Pressure

Home to a zoo, multiple museums, and universities, the city of Roanoke, Virginia, is a hub for tourism, education and affordable living. However, this area is also home to a variety of different pests, some that are even dangerous to human health. Rodents, for example, like mice and rats, are known carriers of disease and can spread illness in addition to ticks and fleas. These pests seek out shelter, food and water sources in Roanoke-area homes, apartments and other living spaces, and can contaminate more food than they consume. Rodents can gain entry inside through unsealed cracks and crevices in a building’s structure, no matter how small the entry point. In fact, rodents can squeeze through openings as small as a dime, which makes sealing up any crevices and cracks around the home important in keeping pests out. Since these pests are hazardous to human health, pest control experts highly recommend working with a trained, local and licensed exterminator.

Another pest that is commonly found in Roanoke and the surrounding areas is the bed bug. These tiny pests are about the size of an apple seed and are brownish-red in color. While large cities like Chicago and New York have made headlines for bed bug infestations, no city is off limits — including Roanoke. In fact, bed bugs can live in a variety of public spaces such as daycare facilities, hospitals, universities, retail stores, offices, hotels, airplanes, gyms and even Virginia residences. Bed bugs are not known to spread illness; however, their bites may cause severe redness, itchiness and swelling. Homeowners can keep bed bugs out of their home by keeping the space clean and tidy in addition to avoiding bringing second-hand furniture into the living space. Experts from Virginia Tech suggest residents who suspect an infestation contact a pest expert, as they have the tools and training to help rid a residence of bed bugs
