As with other port cities, our technicians have found that rats and mice tend to thrive in Des Moines. This can be even worse in areas with regular traffic from humans; from Des Moines’ recreational marina to Woodmont and Redondo Beach, there’s no shortage of conducive conditions for rodent infestations.
Des Moines also has several forested areas outside of its neighborhoods and parks which are home to many pests, including termites. With Des Moines’ forested areas and parks being right on the Puget Sound, the moist soil provides the perfect amount of nutrients to sustain a termite colony indefinitely. If left unchecked, a termite infestation can cause extreme structural damage to your home or business. Spiders and carpenter ants also tend to thrive in these wooded areas.
