Vashon-Maury Island Pest Control | WA’s Premier Pest Pros


Our inspectors and technicians really enjoy the picturesque ferry ride over to Vashon-Maury Island. Named after members of the British Royal Navy, Vashon-Maury Island is one of the most beautiful areas of the Puget Sound. There are a lot of rural residential locations and businesses on Vashon-Maury Island, which can pose unique challenges for pest control.

The 40 square miles that we call Vashon Island is very rural with lots of small farms, cattle ranches, and forested areas, and is prime real estate for many of the Northwest’s pests. Carpenter ants, rodents, and sugar ants have become a mainstay, and have proven to be extremely problematic for the island’s homeowners and businesses.


Many of Vashon’s small farms struggle with rodent and fly problems as a result of the various conducive conditions that go hand-in-hand with farm life. Manure, livestock and their feed, hay fields, and the use of irrigation are all factors we consider when coming up with a solution to your pest issues.

Vashon-Maury Island contains several large tracts of forested areas, and a number of fresh water ponds including Fisher Pond, a 90-acre fresh water conservancy. These vast forested areas coupled with fresh water make Vashon perfect for carpenter ants, termites, and sugar ants. Carpenter ants and termites do a wonderful job of clearing the forest floor, but can wreak havoc on a building, causing structural damage. Odorous house ants (also known as sugar ants) don’t cause structural damage, but can be a huge nuisance pest.

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!


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 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.


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.


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.


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.
