Author: Kurt Treftz, Cascade Pest Control
Cascade’s Approach to Covid-19 (& other viruses) as of February/March 2022
- As mask & distancing mandates are rescinded Cascade technicians will continue to have masks available and will be respectful of your needs when they meet you in person or provide indoor services.
- If we are servicing the inside of your home (or business) please inform us of contagious illnesses of any occupant—whether Covid-19 or not. Also, please discuss need or preference for masks with your technician.
- Exterior services will be conducted as usual.
Washington State Executive Order Recognizes Pest Control as Essential Service
Pest Control is included in both the Homeland Security and Washington State List of Essential Services.
- Deterioration of sanitation and hygiene, including the control of pests, often becomes a secondary health threat to humans during epidemics. Rats, mice, flies and others can spread pathogens (other than COVID-19)
- Continuing your pest prevention service is important. Your service not only protects you and your home, but also it is the collective efforts by folks like you and companies like Cascade that keeps the region’s all-to-successful rat population problem suppressed. More Information
- It is important to continue pest protection treatments to stop any infestation in homes. Postponing or canceling treatments will allow the pest population to flourish and spread easily. Your service is suppressing pests on your property and helping suppress pests throughout your neighborhood.
- Health Departments are overburdened and not easily able to respond to a secondary and wide-spread rodent-related health problem should it arise.
Be safe and be well,
Kurt Treftz, Director
