Overview Of Pest Control Needs In Hampton Roads, VA

Located along the Atlantic Ocean, Hampton Roads faces challenges in controlling pests. The humid environment and abundant moisture from the large body of water create ideal conditions for pests to thrive. In addition, the area's bustling tourism industry adds to the complexity of pest control. We assist residents and business owners in staying proactive against pest problems by offering top-notch pest management solutions tailored to our distinctive coastal habitats and other important factors.

Common Pests In Hampton Roads, VA

Homes and businesses in our Hampton Roads service area often experience infestations of various insects and rodents. While some are nuisance pests, others can be more problematic. Here's a brief list of common pests in our area.

carpenter ants damaging wood


Several types of ants call Hampton Roads home. While all of them need water to survive, carpenter ants prefer damp conditions and tend to nest in water-damaged or decaying wood. Other types of ants found in the area include but are not limited to:

Cockroaches, sometimes referred to as water bugs, have a high moisture requirement. These insects are often found in areas with leaf litter, such as lawns, as well as in kitchens, bathrooms, and damp crawl spaces. In Hampton Roads, the three most common cockroach pests are:

termites infesting and damaging wood in Hampton Roads home


Property owners in Hampton Roads often battle Eastern subterranean termites. Similar to carpenter ants, these wood-destroying insects are attracted to moisture and water-damaged wood. Unfortunately, termites cause significant damage over time if not treated. Signs of a termite problem include:

  • Termite mud tubes (also called tunnels)
  • Termite swarmers
  • Discarded wings
  • Wood damage
bed bugs in mattress seams

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown insects that feed on the blood of humans. Adult bed bugs are wingless and roughly the size of an apple seed. All bed bug life stages can be found hiding in cracks and crevices during the day, and they emerge at night to feed. Common hiding spots include:

  • Mattresses
  • Box springs
  • Headboards & frames
  • Wood and upholstered furniture
roof rat in Hampton Roads


Roof rats, also known as ship rats and black rats, are a significant issue in Hampton Roads, but they are not the only rodents that infest homes and businesses in this region. Norway rats and mice are also troublesome, potentially destructive, and harmful rodents in our area.

Check out our pest library for details about these and other pests, such as centipedes, stink bugs, hornets, spiders, and more.

Seasonal Pest Guide: Summer

During the summer months, Hampton Roads residents often have to deal with ants, cockroaches, and other crawling insects, as well as wood-destroying termites. Mosquitoes, fleas, wasps, and ticks also make an appearance in yards, and due to increased travel during the summer months, bed bugs are a common pest during this season.

Pest Control Services Offered

Here at Getem Services, we provide general pest control and specialized solutions for common local pests.

Most pest problems start outside the home. Maintaining a consistent home pest control plan that involves treating the exterior (with interior treatments as necessary) can help prevent bugs and rodents from entering. Our residential plan offers protection against various pests such as ants, beetles, black widow spiders, rats, fleas, and more.

Few pests can disrupt your peace of mind like termites. We utilize the leading termite defense product, Termidor®. Our termite control is so effective that we provide a 10-year re-treatment warranty.

To eliminate stinging fire ants, our local pest experts treat both those in the yard and those that made it indoors. We also inject fire ant mounds with a product that exterminates the entire colony.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

At Getem Services, we prioritize environmentally friendly pest control that is both sustainable and effective. That's why we rely on Integrated Pest Management (IPM), a method that emphasizes eco-friendly practices, such as biological control, behavior modification, and pest monitoring. Control materials are employed only when absolutely necessary and judiciously.

Our core philosophy is treating others as we want them to treat us. Unsurprisingly, this philosophy has led us to give back to our community. We do this in several ways, such as:

  • Donating to the local YMCA.
  • Sponsoring sports teams for kids, high schools, and colleges.
  • Promoting the Getem 4th Down at the Old Dominion football games.
  • Sponsoring Waterside in Downtown Norfolk.

There is no better way to see our commitment to our communities and customers than to read reviews. Check us out on the Trustindex, where we currently have 4.9 out of 5 stars on over 2,190 reviews.

Pest Prevention Tips

Along with providing the highest level of pest control for our Hampton Roads customers, we also provide prevention tips on our blog. Here are some examples of the suggestions we share:

  • Remove spider webs and crush egg sacs to reduce spiders.
  • Keep trash lids closed and receptacles as clean as possible.
  • Clean your gutters and repair splash blocks.
  • Blow leaves out of your landscaping and remove other organic clutter.
