Tacoma Pest Control | WA’s Premier Pest Pros

THE CITY OF TACOMA, WA

Roughly half of the Sentinel Pest Control team is fortunate to call Tacoma home. Founded in 1875, Tacoma is Washington’s third largest city, with a population hovering around the 220,000 mark. The “City of Destiny” boasts Washington State’s largest deep-water port in Commencement Bay, and was named one of the most livable cities in the United States.

Tacoma’s close proximity to Puget Sound and Commencement Bay is fabulous for recreation and commerce, but means heavy rodent populations and frequent infestations. Tacoma is comprised of a mixture of newer residential neighborhoods, old historical neighborhoods, industrial/commercial parks, and a newly revitalized down town area. Each of these locations presents unique challenges for the pest control professional.

PEST MANAGEMENT SERVICES IN TACOMA

The city of Tacoma features over 85 parks, along with a number of nature preserves, green belts, and other private forested areas. While these places make for a great escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, they are home to carpenter ants, sugar ants, and many other unwanted pests.

New residential and commercial construction displaces insects and rodents, causing an influx in pest problems for nearby homes and businesses, and established historical homes and structures are often easy targets for pest intrusions. We frequently see termite and rodent infestations in these stately older buildings.

RODENT CONTROL

Establishing effective prevention methods for rodent infestations can be time-consuming; it requires a thorough inspection, repair of any rodent entry points, mechanical trap installation, and bait station placement. Exclusion is part of the solution!

ANT CONTROL

Treating an ant infestation is a fairly complicated process. Our ant treatment involves a significant amount of detective work, specialized interior baiting, and liquid chemical treatments, as well as an exterior chemical application to the home or building and various areas on the property.

BED BUG CONTROL

Bed bugs are often found in or around beds and bedrooms. They are notoriously difficult to locate due to their skill at hiding, and made even more challenging by their fast maturity rate and longer life span. Identifying the origin and scope of an infestation requires more detailed inquiry.

TERMITE CONTROL

The most common species of termites in Washington are the Pacific Dampwood and Western Subterranean termite. Termites can do significant structural damage to a home or business, and require extensive preventative treatment to be fully eliminated and excluded.

STINGING INSECTS

There are several different species of stinging insects native to the Pacific Northwest. Many are non-aggressive and serve a vital ecological function; however, some species—particularly yellow jackets, wasps, and hornets—can be extremely aggressive and require removal.

SPIDER CONTROL

There are various species of spiders found throughout Washington and the Puget Sound region. While spiders in general can be beneficial in the elimination of other pests, they are not usually welcome visitors in our homes and their bites should be avoided.
