Are You Ready for Fall Insects & Pests

It's almost that time of year when folks will begin putting away the summer toys and break out the fall décor. With summer shortly coming to an end, your list of to-dos is sure to be long. This means boxes will be moved and sifted through that probably haven't been disturbed in months! The last thing anybody wants is to have a tiny visitor crawl out onto their hands while they are grabbing last year's scarecrow décor but it's likely inevitable. Unless you’re a customer of Eagle Pest Services that is! In lieu of the weather changing, we thought it would be fitting to point out some of the most common basement pests found in Virginia. If you've already been a regular client of Eagle Pest Services, you won't have to worry too much about running across these creepy crawlies. Otherwise, here is a short list of what you may run into this fall!
