Discovering that you have an infestation of creepy, crawling critters in your home is never a welcomed surprise. Insects such as ants, cockroaches, spiders, and stinging insects enjoy the comfort of many Seattle homes. If allowed to continue, insect infestations can grow to be a widespread problem that requires the assistance of Seattle pest control companies.
Because of their small size, insects can easily gain access to your home through any minor hole or crack. These openings can be found near windows and door frames, in basement walls, and in attic rafters. Once insects have entered your home, they often discover that wall cavities, attics, flooring, insulation, and crawl spaces are ideal locations to quietly lay eggs. This ultimately results in an extensive and uncontrollable pest infestation in your home.
We offer a variety of pest control services at Clean Crawls, including insect extermination. We perform inspections, exterminations, and preventative treatments through Seattle, Bellevue, Tacoma, Redmond, Renton, and Everett. Our industry standard pest removal procedures include chemical and natural pesticides, biological pest control, mechanical pest control, and elimination of food sources and breeding grounds.
After performing a thorough inspection, our trained professionals can recommend the ideal pest control method to remove unwanted insects from your home.
Questions to Ask Before Requesting Pest Control Services:
There are a number of basic questions that Seattle homeowners can use to determine whether or not specialized pest control services are necessary. If you answer any of the following questions with ‘yes’, then your insect pest problem could use the assistance of a professional insect pest control company:
Is the invading species of insect a threat to your home or family?
Have other methods of pest control been unsuccessful?
Is there a large infestation?
Is the issue recurring?
Are these insects difficult to remove?
Does this pest problem indicate other problems with your home?
If you answer ‘yes’, then it’s time to get in touch with a reliable and qualified Seattle insect control company.
Insect Removal Services:
At Clean Crawls, we provide insect removal services for a variety of critters. Here are some of the most common found in Seattle homes:
Whether they’re carpenter ants, black ants, or sugar ants, they are common and annoying, especially when you find them on top of your counter tops. Despite the fact that most common ant species in Washington State are not venomous, they can be an incredible nuisance and very difficult to remove from your home. Their small size makes it easy for them to enter your home, so locating their entry point and nest location can be a challenge.
Professional ant removal services should be contacted when the following problems exist:
- Large colonies (up to 500,000).
- Cannot be eradicated with over-the-counter means.
- Unidentified nests.
- Allergies in the family to dust or insect bites.
- Colonies in insulation.
At Clean Crawls, our pest control services will not only help you by eliminating ants from your home, but also sealing and insulating your home after the extermination.
While most other insects are not inherently threatening, stinging insects can pose a serious challenge if they invade your home. Wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets are commonly found in older homes that have unsealed and drafty attics. Provided easy access to this ideal nesting place, stinging insects will proceed to build large and intricate nests in the wall cavities or beneath the eaves of your home. The creation and construction of these nests can result in serious damage.
This insect infestation is made more challenging by the fact that these are, after all, stinging insects. They will attack any person or animal that they observe to be threatening. Many people are allergic to the sting of hornets, wasps, and yellow jackets, so it’s highly recommended for these pest problems to be handled by trained professionals.
Many species of spiders are found in Seattle. Spiders are attracted to attics and crawl spaces, either because they are dry and warm, or because they are cool and moist. In every case, spider prefer darkness.
Spiders will often enter homes through poorly sealed windows or through cracks around door frames. Once they’re inside, they start to cultivate and lay egg sacs. A single sac can contain hundreds of eggs. Spider bites can be incredibly painful, especially if they are poisonous. The spider removal process is a delicate and tedious one, often requiring the assistance of an experienced insect pest control company.
Cockroaches are known to carry various diseases, emit odors, and make disturbing sounds during the night. These nocturnal insects are on a quest to find food, warmth, water, and nesting locations. Many Seattle homes provide these resources, so it’s no surprise that a number of homes experience extensive cockroach infestations.
Cockroaches can enter the home in a number of ways. While they are commonly carried into the home in a bag, or on a box of fruit, these insects can also enter through vents, drain pipes, cracks, and crevices. These insects reproduce quickly and their eggs are naturally resistant to over-the-counter insecticides. An infestation of this kind often demands the assistance of Seattle insect pest control services.
In addition to the above species of insect, we also handle earwig removal, silverfish removal, and flea removal. We also handle other pests, including rodents and termites.
