Everett Pest Pressure
Just under an hour’s drive north of Seattle, Washington, and positioned off of Possession Sound, the city of Everett's climate and proximity to water make it an area where a series of pests, like mice and rats, can thrive. First introduced to the United States by way of ships traveling from Europe and other areas, these sneaky pests still find their way from place to place aboard ships and boats making stops along docks and port cities. Not only are these pests unsightly, they are a hazard to human health. For example, rats and mice are known carriers of disease, such as rat bite fever, hantavirus and leptospirosis that can make humans very ill.
Mice and rats will feed on nearly anything to survive, including food waste in restaurant dumpsters and stored foods in Everett homes. They typically find their way indoors to seek out shelter as the seasons change from the warmer months to colder, or when they are seeking out food. However, Everett residents can take action to help keep rodents out. Experts suggest sealing up any cracks and crevices around the home to rodent-proof the property. But despite prevention measures, rodents may still be able to infiltrate the home, so it is suggested to work with a trained professional if an infestation is suspected.
In addition to rodents, other pests such as bees and wasps are commonly found in Everett, especially toward the end of the summer months. While bees are essential to the environment, they do sting and can be potentially hazardous to human health — especially if a victim has an allergy. The Washington State Department of Health has provided an online resource that lists tools and information to help residents treat, prevent and protect themselves against bee and wasp problems.
