Seattle, WA Pest Control

Anyone expecting rain in Seattle, WA, is unlikely to be disappointed. While the city has fog, drizzle and rain more days than not, its rainfall totals are lower than those recorded in other areas of the country. Even with its gray skies, Seattle has a temperate climate without many bouts of extreme highs or lows. Although pests don't carry umbrellas, many do find the comfortable temperatures and ready supply of moisture in this area delightful.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are nocturnal hunters that invade the spaces where humans rest because sleeping people are easy prey for these tiny blood drinkers. While these parasitic insects are not known to carry any diseases, their bites can cause skin irritation, itching, redness and swelling. Flat, reddish-brown bugs roughly the size of an apple seed, bed bugs are visible to the human eye, but they often go unnoticed because they prefer to hide and come out at night. Common hiding spots include mattresses, upholstered furniture, night stands, and spaces behind headboards or pictures that are near beds. Unfortunately, today's bed bugs are often unfazed by most insecticides, so they can be very difficult to eradicate. Professional assistance is a must.

Moisture Ants

Moisture ants prefer to nest in areas with lots of moisture, so Seattle is definitely their kind of town. Sometimes called yellow ants because the workers are yellowish in color, these ants give off a scent of lemon or citronella when crushed. While they generally nest outdoors, they will also move inside homes if they find wood that is moisture damaged. Damp crawlspaces, walls where there is a plumbing leak and bath traps are places where moisture ants are likely to surface. When either the insects or their activity is detected, it can be difficult for homeowners to tell if they are dealing with moisture ants or termites, so it is always best to request professional help if you suspect that you have an infestation.

Spiders

Spiders are predators, and they often enter homes looking for prey. Some prefer warm, dry spaces, and others thrive in damp, hidden areas; while some spin webs to call home, other species are happy to nest in cracks and crevices. Ultimately, these eight-legged arachnids can be found in virtually any part of a human home. While many are harmless, certain species have bites that can be hazardous, so it's wise to approach spiders with caution. A pest control professional can properly identify any spiders infesting your home and take the steps necessary to eliminate them.
