The area in and around Liberty Lake, WA, is a delightful place to live and work. Unfortunately, pests are often attracted to the same qualities that people are, so they have a dismaying tendency to pop up in even the most pleasant places. If pests are causing problems at your home or business, count on Eden Advanced Pest Technologies.
Inside a residential or commercial property, a rodent infestation generally means that rats or mice have moved in. These stealthy pests favor areas where there is little traffic and invade spaces where food is prepared or stored. Signs of an infestation can include rodent sightings, the discovery of droppings or an encounter with an ammonia smell that results from their urine.
With their propensity for chewing and gnawing, rodents can cause physical damage to your home. Mice and rats can also carry ticks and a number of dangerous diseases, and contact with the actual pest isn’t the only source of danger. Contaminated food can an issue. Even disturbing a nesting area without the proper precautions can be hazardous; germs in the urine and feces can be released into the air, and simply breathing them in can make someone very sick.
Tiny, rust-colored parasites the size of apple seeds that feed on blood, bed bugs can be hard to detect and even harder to eliminate. Bed bugs enter your home by hitching a ride on shoes or clothing, sneaking inside a suitcase, or stowing away in used furniture. They are nocturnal and can go for more than a year without feeding.
Once inside, bed bugs can conceal themselves in mattresses, headboards, furniture, carpeting, baseboards, switch plates and other hidden spaces. They’ve even been found lurking behind wallpaper. While they are not known to carry any diseases, their bites can be itchy and distressing. Signs of a bed bug infestation include unexplained bites, sightings of live or dead bed bugs, and the discovery of their eggs, which resemble tiny grains of rice. Getting rid of these hardy pests is not easy because they are resistant to many pesticides; a professional touch is normally required to get the job done.
No one wants to see ants marching through a home or business. These tiny pests are surprisingly strong and very determined to seek out food and moisture. They can enter structures through tiny cracks, slipping under doors and windowsills and climbing in along plumbing and wiring.
Any ant can be problematic. These persistent pests bite, and they can contaminate food in their efforts to secure sustenance. However, carpenter ants present an even greater threat because they will actually chew through wood in order to construct a nest for their colony.
