Pest Pressure in Nearby Renton
Residents of Renton, WA, must contend with several disease-carrying pests throughout the year. These include:
Normally entering homes during fall to avoid cooling winter temperatures, the deer mouse is the most important carrier of the hantavirus in Washington. When people come in contact with the rodents' urine, feces, or nesting materials, they could become infected.
Conversely, mosquitoes cause Renton residents the most trouble in the hot and humid summer months. Swarms of these flying, biting pests routinely make it difficult to enjoy time outdoors. More than just a nuisance, they can also spread serious diseases like West Nile virus.
Fleas are a source of discomfort for pets and people year-round. Often brought indoors on cats or dogs, the pests breed indoors and hide in carpets, bedding, and upholstered furniture. Flea bites are generally more irritating than harmful, though they can spread bacterial diseases such as plague.
Renton also has its fair share of pests that are not medically important, yet can destroy peace of mind when they infest homes. Common nuisance pests in the area include:
Ants cause issues year-round, but during warm spring weather they often travel indoors for food and water. These pests are not known to spread disease, though few people are willing to keep pantry goods crawling with ants. In large colonies, they can hollow out walls, harm outdoor structures in the yard, or simply annoy and disgust people.
These small, flat insects infest homes and feed on residents' blood where they rest. Although their bites don't transmit disease, they can often lead to restless nights for people who know bed bugs are going to strike at any moment.
