With nearly 130,000 people calling it home, Kent is the sixth largest city in Washington State. Like many cities in the Puget Sound area, Kent began as a farming hub in the mid- to late-1800s. After Boeing decided to build the Aerospace Center in the Valley almost a century later, Kent became a popular destination for many other companies, turning it into one of the largest manufacturing and distribution centers in the country.
Today, Kent has grown into a sprawling city with a wide variety of locales. From beautiful residential areas on both the East Hill and West Hill to the dense industrial area in the Valley, from its beautiful parks and lakes to a bustling downtown center, Kent has something for everyone. Unfortunately, that variety comes with a diverse range of pests!
Kent’s West Hill has a number of natural features that can make the neighborhood a hotbed of pest activity. Several greenbelt areas, such as those around Harrison Creek or Mill Creek, can be teeming with carpenter ants, termites, and spiders. Several large water sources, such as Lake Meridian and Clark Lake, can help populations of rodents thrive as well.
With the considerable density of warehouses located in the center of the city, owners need to be on the lookout for pests trying to move in! Sentinel’s skilled pest professionals are well-versed in the needs of industrial customers, and our Commercial Pest Control services may be just what you need to keep invaders such as rodents or stinging insect nests at bay.
