Pest Control for Arlington County VA – Rats and Mice are the Number One Problem
"No one wants to talk about it, but Arlington has a real rat problem on our hands," Quote from Washington Post Article.
Arlington City is urban in nature and is very densely populated. It is located on the western banks of the Potomac River, just across from Washington, D.C. When a densely populated city borders a major river (like to Potomac) rodent population of rats and mice will be high. Too, Arlington is a tourist destination supporting over 500 restaurants and underground metro stations. Restaurants provide the rodents a food source and metro stations- and your homes- provide shelter.
Yearly rat infestation calls to Arlington Government exceed 700. Arlington County has active rodent abatement programs and Arlington County Public Health provides advice and assistance to residents and property owners on controlling rats and mice; however, extermination on private property is the property owner's responsibility. And, per county code, it is the “Duty of Either Property Owner, Occupant or Both to Keep the Property Free from Rat Harborage”. See https://www.arlingtonva.us/Government/Programs/Health/Environmental-Health/Rats-Mice The best rodent control strategy-and least costly-is always prevention. Three major rodent species are found in large numbers throughout Arlington; Norway rats, roof rats and common house mice. Norway rats are especially dangerous and elusive due to their burrowing nature. We have the specialized equipment to exterminate Norway rats even in their underground burrows.

Ants Found in Arlington County VA- Prevention and Extermination
Although ants do not pose the same danger as rodents, they can become a major problem if left unchecked. Ant extermination and control methods will vary based on the type and location of the ant colony. Ant prevention is always less costly than ant extermination. The major types of ants found in Arlington are Carpenter ants, Fire ants, Back ants, Odorous house ants, Pavement ants, Pharaoh ants, and Crazy ants. Recently, experts have also identified invasive ants, not yet found in Arlington, that are moving northward. They are already prevalent in Southern-Central Virginia counties. Specifically, three species are of concern: the red imported fire ant, the Asian needle ant and the Argentine ant. Two of these invasive ants pose a real human health threat. Consumers in our Northern VA area should report immediately any suspected sighting of these species to the VA Dept of Agriculture and Consumer Services (DACS), Office of Plant & Pest Services at 804-786-3515.
