Home Pest Control in Potomac MD

Putting in place a home pest control plan is an important step in keeping your home looking and feeling its best. Pests have the ability to inflict a lot more damage to your home than you may first think. That one ant in the kitchen is just one of thousands that are nesting within your property and waiting to forage for food in your home.

One or two mice in the attic can lead to many, many mice running throughout your home chewing on wires and pipes, destroying clothing and furniture, and leaving behind a trail of urine and feces wherever they go.

Effective Termite Control in Potomac Maryland

Termites are a tough pest that requires tough action to eliminate and control their presence on Potomac property. As a homeowner, it is important to know the signs of a termite infestation in order to get professional help as quickly as possible. Signs of termites can include:

  • Mud tubes the width of a pencil that can be found running on the ground, on the foundation, and on the exterior walls of your home.

  • Piles of wings around doors and windows that have been left behind after a termite swarm.

  • Blistered or splintered paint and/or wallpaper.

  • Chewing sounds coming from behind your home’s walls or underneath floors.

  • Wood that sounds hollow when tapped on.

  • Noticing doors and ceilings beginning to warp.


Termites are known as silent destroyers because their damages can sometimes go unnoticed for years; this is why having a termite inspection completed on your Potomac, Maryland, property is so important. After inspection, if a termite problem is revealed, the professionals at American Pest have effective treatment options for you to choose from.
