Kent Pest Pressure
Insects are active during the warm season in Kent, WA, making their way indoors to find food and shelter. Kent residents tend to run into problems with the following pests:
Bed bugs are only a quarter-inch long, which allows them to hide behind baseboards, door and window moldings, cracks in bed frames, nightstands, headboards, or other kinds of furniture. They typically remain concealed after consuming a blood meal and generally will not venture out of their protected nest site until they need to take another.
Although bed bugs aren’t currently known to transmit diseases to people, they can leave itchy, inflamed bumps on the parts of exposed skin where they feed.
Carpenter ants bore through both rotten and sound wood, weakening support beams and harming foam insulation. These pests also crawl indoors in search of food and moisture. Inside homes, carpenter ants are found behind shelves, between floorboards, in wall voids, or within stored furniture.
When cold weather hits, a scramble for shelter ensues as rodents and insects seek warmth. Kent residents have major issues with these pests:
Rats can climb vertical surfaces, jump small distances, and squeeze through small holes or gaps, all of which make their entry into homes relatively quick and easy. After gaining access to rooftops, they gnaw holes through siding to get into attics. Females can have a new litter every month, making it hard to control rat populations without help.
Cockroaches in Kent are fond of cluttered counter tops and stacks of dirty dishes. Open trash cans and leaky pipes will also bring them indoors. During the day, cockroaches hide in wall cracks and floorboards, coming out at night to contaminate food and surfaces as they feed.
