FALLS CHURCH, Va. (WUSA) -- All kinds of bugs... good and bad bugs like mosquitoes, which means we have to worry about West Nile Virus, ants and even fleas on our pets!
"The huge increase in pest activity is making our business very good right now," said Paul Hoffmann with the Home Paramount Pest Control.
The creepy crawly critters are coming if they're not already here.
Pest control experts warn get ready for what could be a pest-filled spring and even summer!
"Your soil is still warm and everything is emerging from the soil," explained Hoffmann.
Hoffmann says ants are showing up earlier than usual, along with cockroaches. Mosquitoes, which carry the west nile virus, may not be far behind.
In fact, in his 16 years in the pest control business, Hoffmann says this past winter was his busiest ever!
