Rodent Control In Arlington VA
Rats and mice in Arlington VA often make their nests in and around homes & office buildings. Rats can squeeze through holes the size of a quarter, and mice can squeeze through holes the size of a dime. In Arlington, the 2 most common rodents are the Norway Rat and the House Mouse. Miche Pest Control provides rodent control services in Arlington VA and the surrounding areas. We use multiple methods to get rid of rodents fast:
- Inside Rodent Trapping
- Inspecting For Entry Points
- Exclusion (Sealing The Entry Points)
- Installing Tamper Resistant Rodent Bait Stations Outside
After getting control of your rodent infestation, we recommend maintaining the service for at least one year, since rodent activity levels vary throughout the different seasons. After the first service, we return at least every 2 months to make sure the bait stations are fully loaded with fresh bait, and we inspect for any new entry points while we're there. Especially in a densely populated area like Arlington VA, it can be difficult to eliminate all potential sources of rodents (rats can travel as far as 150 feet searching for food), so keeping the service long term is the best way to keep rodents away for good.
5 Things To Do To Protect Yourself From Mosquitoes In Arlington VA
- Use an effective mosquito repellent, such as DEET, Picaridin or Lemon-Eucalyptus oil. Make sure you follow the directions on the product's label.
- Ensure the screens on doors and windows are in good order - these help prevent mosquitoes from entering your home.
- Be aware that mosquitoes in Arlington are most active during dawn and dusk, but can still bite during the day, depending on the species.
- Always wear long sleeves and pants when you're outdoors, and don't forget to wear socks.
- Drain all sources of standing water to prevent mosquitoes from breeding. This includes water that build ups in containers such as birdbaths and buckets, as well as areas of your yard in which water can form puddles.
Tick, Flea & Mosquito Control In Arlington VA
Fleas and ticks are both active year round in Washington DC and the surrounding areas. While these pests are active year round, their peak season tends to be in the spring, summer, and fall, coinciding with mosquito season. Miche Pest Control provides both seasonal and year round treatment options for its yard services for ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes.
Our goal is to provide the best tick, flea, and mosquito services possible. Mosquitoes, fleas, and ticks all tend to be most concentrated in areas with tall grass, standing water, leaf litter, under sheds, and other places with shade and moisture, but ticks especially will sometimes be found in the middle of a yard, having fed on and fallen off of animals in your yard. Our tick, fleas & mosquito services treat all of the foliage in the yard, as well as grassy areas, and under decks and sheds. We use a combination of products designed to eliminate adult mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas, as well as their larval stages, effectively breaking the pests’ life cycles.
With safety in mind, we use products that are registered with the EPA, labeled for use in/around homes, hospitals, day cares, and pet kennels. The first service is designed to get rid of an existing infestation, if you have one, but most of our customers use our services preventatively. Each service works proactively to keep your yard protected from ticks, fleas, and mosquitoes. The products we use don’t last forever, so once the products break down and eggs start hatching, we come back and re-apply the protective treatments that we’ve applied around your yard. These services are typically provided once per month, but Miche Pest Control’s Pest Free Guarantee means that if you have issues with ticks, fleas, or mosquitoes in between your monthly services, all you have to do is let us know and we’ll come back at no additional cost.
Because we will sometimes schedule your monthly services as frequently as every 3-4 weeks, to keep things consistent, simple and affordable, we bill monthly, year round, on the same day every month for our tick, flea & mosquito services.

Arlington County is a county in the Commonwealth of Virginia, often referred to simply as Arlington, Virginia. The county is situated in Northern Virginia on the southwestern bank of the Potomac River directly across from the District of Columbia, of which it was once a part, under the name Alexandria County. The county is coterminous with the U.S. Census Bureau's census-designated place of Arlington. Arlington is considered to be the second-largest "principal city" of the Washington metropolitan area. If it were incorporated as a city, Arlington would be the fourth most-populous city in the state.
With a land area of 26 square miles, Arlington is the geographically smallest self-governing county in the US, and by reason of state law regarding population density, it has no incorporated towns within its borders. Arlington is home to the Pentagon, Reagan National Airport, and Arlington National Cemetery. In academia, the county contains Marymount University, George Mason University's Antonin Scalia Law School, the administrative offices buildings and graduate programs for the Schar School of Policy and Government and the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution, as well as satellite campuses of the University of Virginia and Virginia Tech.
The area that now constitutes Arlington County was originally part of Fairfax County in the Colony of Virginia. Land grants from the British monarch were awarded to prominent Englishmen in exchange for political favors and efforts at development. One of the grantees was Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron, who lends his name to both Fairfax County and the City of Fairfax. The county's name "Arlington" comes via Henry Bennet, Earl of Arlington, a Plantation along the Potomac River, and Arlington House, the family residence on that property. George Washington Parke Custis, the grandson of First Lady Martha Washington, acquired this land in 1802. The estate was eventually passed down to Mary Anna Custis Lee, wife of General Robert E. Lee. The property later became Arlington National Cemetery during the American Civil War, and eventually lent its name to present-day Arlington County.
