Vashon Island Pest Control

The thought of one of these pests crawling through your home may make your skin crawl, but it's something we're used to combating all the time. Here are three of the more common infestations we deal with:

Ants

The ubiquitous ant is one of the more common pests to invade homes and businesses. Seeking moisture and food, these insects can easily enter the many cracks and crevasses in the doors, windows, and walls of a home. Their short life cycles mean a small infestation can quickly grow out of control if not handled immediately.

It's important to narrow down the specific kind of ant infesting a home. For example, carpenter ants are larger bugs that tend to eat wood, while pavement ants are the tiny bugs you'll find building anthills in concrete. While many ants are harmless to humans, some bite, like fire ants, and others carry disease, like pharaoh ants. Determining the species of ant will help us craft the best strategy to remove the infestation.

Norway Rats

The classic case of pest infestation, rats are dirty, disease-ridden, and destructive. Besides spreading disease and general unease, rats destroy property, leave droppings everywhere, and ruin food stores. As a threat to both health and wealth, rats must be eliminated immediately and prevented from returning. We thoroughly explore your crawl spaces to determine the level of infestation, entry points, and how best to treat the problem.

Yellow Jackets

These wasps build their nests anywhere they can find shelter, like walls, roofs, hedges, and even holes in the ground. Yellow jackets are dangerous to all people, not just those who are allergic to stings, since these insects will aggressively defend their nest and can sting multiple times in a single attack. For this reason, it's imperative that you call a professional to handle a yellow jacket nest, especially one of unknown size.
