And while they are on your property they can cause massive damage to your home.

Rodents Cause Structural Damage

  • Rats Rat infestations are very common in Seattle and should not be ignored. Rats cause damage to a variety of places in your home. They chew through whatever is in their way in order to get to a warm, dry place. By chewing through insulation and ducting, rats cause your heating bills to rise drastically. They chew through electrical wiring which can cause electrical fires. They chew through furniture, cars, and plumbing fixtures, which can cause flooding. Their droppings and urine create stains on wood and insulation. A rat's teeth never stop growing, so they are constantly chewing through everything in their way. If a rodent infestation isn't dealt with, the possible damage is endless. The cost of the damage that rats cause is very high, so it's important to take care of the problem right away.
  • Mice Mice are similar to rats in that they chew through everything to find a warm, dry place to call home. The difference is they are much smaller and can squeeze through tighter spaces. This makes them hard to notice, so it's important to know the signs of mice in your home.

Rodents Carry Dangerous Diseases

In addition to causing structural damage, rodents cause health issues to the people.
  • Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome: a virus that can be picked up from the droppings and urine of deer mice. It causes severe illness in humans and nearly one-third of the cases reported in Washington state resulted in fatality.
  • Plague: a serious bacterial infection humans can contract from flea bites. Fleas contract this bacteria from infected wild animals, such as rodents. Dogs and cats can also contract the disease and spread it to humans. In 2015, there were fifteen reported cases of the Plague.
  • Salmonellosis: a bacterial infection of the intestines caused by Salmonella. The bacteria is spread through the droppings of infected animals and humans. It can cause serious disease in children, the elderly, and people with weak immune systems.
  • Monkeypox: a virus that spreads through contact with rodents or their blood and can cause respiratory problems in humans. There is no specific treatment for monkeypox but you can receive a vaccine that lowers your risk of contracting it.

Signs To Look For

  • Scratching noises at night, inside your walls or ceiling
  • Droppings or urine stains in your attic or crawl space insulation
  • Dark colored, oily smudges on top of small openings through which rodents can crawl
  • Nests embedded in your insulation, near and around ducting
  • Pets, dogs, or cats scratching or staring at floor vents

Best Time for a Seattle Exterminator

The best time to get rid of your Seattle rodent problem is right now. The damage rodents cause can cost anywhere from hundreds to thousands of dollars, if left untreated. There are also health concerns when rodents are living in close proximity to humans.

Benefits of Hiring a Professional Seattle Exterminator

Removing rodents on your own can be dangerous and unsuccessful. Rodents can cause so many diseases and bacterial infections that it becomes unsafe to be around them or their droppings without protective gear. By hiring a professional Seattle exterminator, you can rest assured that your rodent problem is dealt with and eliminated.
  • Rodent removal can be difficult, since it is likely they are still alive and constantly moving.
  • Our technicians can identify where the rodents are getting into your home and seal any access points.
  • Our technicians use protective gear for safety during treatment.

Why Wasps Are So Dangerous

Do you know why wasps can be worse than honey bees? Honey bees can only sting once, but wasps don't have that same attribute and can sting you again and again. They are also easily provoked, even by accident. If you hit or smash a wasp, pheromones are released that will alert other wasps to attack you. Wasps are very aggressive when defending their colony and are more likely to attack when you are within 7-8 yards of their nest.

Wasps Can Cause Structural Damage

Wasp nests or hives can cause structural damage when they are built inside of your home. When lying on drywall, the nests or hives can cause the drywall to disintegrate. As the drywall disintegrates, more and more wasps will come into the structure leading to a dangerous situation.

Signs To Look For

Here are some signs your home may have been invaded by a wasp colony and are in need of wasp nest removal:
  • Nests or hives in and around structures
  • High numbers of wasps, yellow jackets, or hornets
  • Constant activity of wasps coming from or going into any particular opening

Hobo Spider Identification

Hobo spiders have a V-shape pattern on their abdomens, solid brown legs, hairy legs and back, 5/8 – 1¾ inches long including the legs, and noticeable spinnerets. They are fast runners, make funnel-shaped webs, and are nocturnal.

Hobo Spider Bite Symptoms

Hobo spider bites are painful and in some cases have lead to death. If you are bitten by a hobo spider, seek medical attention to get proper treatment. The symptoms of a hobo spider bite include:
  • Muscular weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Disorientation
  • Confusion
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Severe headache
  • Joint pain

Ways to Get Rid of Hobo Spiders

Clear the Clutter If you have a lot of clutter around your house, clear it. The more clutter you have, the more places there are for hobo spiders to hide. Clean your House Spiders come around when there are other insects that can be eaten. And other insects come around when there is stuff in your house that they can eat. So clean up your kitchen, vacuum, dust, do laundry regularly, and keep your house clean. Improve your Storage If you are currently storing things in cardboard boxes, be prepared to find lots of hobo spiders. Make the switch to plastic bins that can be securely closed. If spiders can't get in, they won't stick around. Fill in Hide-Away Holes Hobo spiders usually made their webs in cracks, holds, or crevices. By filling in these holes with silicone caulk you can keep them away from your home. Dehumidify Hobo spiders are drawn to moisture so by getting a few dehumidifiers, you can create an environment that they dislike. Make your Yard Unattractive Your yard doesn't have to unattractive to humans, but it should be to spiders. Remove plans and vegetation within a foot of your house, get rid of debris piles, and remove all mulch. Insects are drawn to mulch and the hobo spiders follow.
