Rodent Control

Rodent Control

Why So Many Rats in Greater Seattle (the Puget Sound Basin)?

From Tacoma to Bellingham people need commercial pest control and residential exterminators. Rat pest control is an issue in urban, suburban, saltwater shorelines areas. Rodents can cause damage to your business, home, car, RV, trailer, or boat – and carry disease. Mouse control occurs most in suburban and rural areas. Mice do similar damage as rats and carry hantavirus. Prevent rats and mice with our environmentally safe pest control services. Cascade Pest Control has skilled, experienced rodent control experts across King County.

Cascade rodent control specialists perform inspections throughout King Country. Different rodents are prevalent in various areas. Our specialists have expert knowledge of identifying rodents in the following areas:

Seattle, Bellingham, Tacoma, Auburn, Everett, Eastside, Bellevue, Redmond, Kirkland, Federal Way And many more areas surrounding the Emerald City

Initial Inspection for Mouse Control & Rat Extermination

Cascade’s Initial Rodent Treatment accomplishes three goals:

  • Assess the rodent infestation to guide our next steps at rodent control
  • Educate you on measures to take for mouse control, rodent or rat extermination
  • Start mice and rat extermination with trap setting

Rodent Inspection for Residential and Commercial Pest Control

Cascade rodent control specialists first assess the damage and inspect the property. Your technician looks for access points, visible damage and assesses the next steps. We take pride in unraveling the mystery of how rats or mice could enter your structure. This can include taking action to prevent rodent infestation immediately after the inspection.

The initial rodent service includes setting rat traps in strategic locations. This includes exterior “trap stations” as a perimeter defense surrounding the structure.

This treatment starts Cascade’s Rodent Inspect & Protect service. The beginning of long-term rat or mouse prevention starts with our initial rodent extermination.

Rodent Exclusion / Rodent Proofing and Rodent Prevention

Our technicians have a wealth of knowledge in construction and pest biology. This makes them well equipped for rat exclusion (also referred to as rodent proofing) and mice removal. Some of the mice and rodent prevention services include:

  • Repair gaps in crawlspace or attic vents
  • Close gaps where plumbing enters the home from the crawlspace
  • Screen or install flashing at adjoining openings on the roof
  • Seal gaps around garage doors
  • Repair foundation gaps around sewer drain (rats tunnel through the sewer exit gap)
  • Remedy crevices around the crawlspace access door
  • Replace or repair crawl space hatch covers that are loose fitting

…and many more specific to your property needs!

Mice Protection through Rodent Identification and Behavioral Knowledge

Our rodent exclusion / proofing experts can identify rats and mice, and understand their behavior. They are experts in rat and mouse removal, pest control, and identifying rat damage. Rodent prevention requires this expertise. Pest control starts with understanding how a pest operates.

Rodent Prevention & Protection Service

Rodents are territorial, so when a group occupies a space they keep out other rats and mice. When you remove an infestation, now an uninhabited space for a new family of rodents appears. This leaves the structure “unguarded” and vulnerable to re-infestation.

Cascade’s Rodent Inspect & Protect Service solves this problem. Through periodic exterior inspections, we keep rodents out with our perimeter defenses.

Rodent Abatement

Mice or rat abatement is a preemptive exterminating technique. It reduces and contains rodent populations from old buildings or vacant lots. This is most usual before demolition and clearing phases of construction.

Various cities and municipalities require rodent abatement prior to certain construction projects. Cascade has a strong reputation in King County for managing this type of pest control.

Rodent Damage

Without professional pest control, you run the risk of serious damage to the property. For example, rodent damage can cause problems for homeowners when they go to sell their house. A home inspection could ask for rodent damage repairs before a sale is final. Letting this problem go could cost you more in the future.

Even tenants of a commercial property can experience the effects of rodent damage. Besides a customer or client seeing a scurrying pest, rodents destroy all parts of a building. The great holes, destroy furniture and even compromise the structure itself.

Rodent Odor and Filth

If you ignore removing rodents from your building a new problem will emerge. Mice and rats die, and dead rodent odor is not something you want in your home or place of business. Regardless of the foul smell, decaying pests is a biohazard risk. Cascade Pest Control will remove dead animals, control rodent odor, and combat any fallout from dead mice.

Removing the carcasses alone reduces the odor, but that’s not enough. We provide professional rodent odor reduction/control, sanitation, and decontamination.

Attic and/or Crawlspace Cleaning & Insulation Repair

Cascade manages attic and crawl space cleaning and insulation repair. Rodents can compress or disturb insulation to where it is ineffective. This will result in you paying higher utility costs. Rodent infestations leave filth in the attic and/or crawlspace. We can help you stop this potential biohazard. Cascade Pest Control provides cleaning and insulation repair for your home or business.

I contracted with them to remove critters out of my attic the day after my attic was cleaner and all insulation was removed. It’s the middle of winter and it takes 3 appointments, spaced out several days apart. The first appointment was the week of the 6th of January, and tomorrow is MLK day. I’ve only had 1 appointment so far. My second appointment was to be on the 14th-but they cancelled. Everyday I don’t have insulation it cost money, and energy. I’m freaked out that the two appointments are so far apart, because of snow and then the tech was out sick. I don’t feel 5 star companies do this, when time is the most important factor. So 4 stars for the prompt communication, and nice tech. second appointment won’t be until Tuesday the 21st.

Came in after I had work done to seal my crawl space. They pointed out areas the prior contractor missed and I was able to get that contractor back to complete the job. Very timely, polite and thorough.

Joseph called me several minutes before his appointed time and told me he would be about 15 minutes late. No problem. When he arrived he explained to me what he was going to be doing and proceeded to complete the task. He took pictures of some minor issues that he already took care of. He left traps in the crawl space as he had found one small mouse. He will be returning in the coming week for results at which time we will discuss any further action. Joseph has a very friendly and helpful attitude and left the property in better condition than when he first appeared. He is commited to provideng excellent service. I'm pleased so far!!

Good communication from office (via email) AND from service tech in the field. They know what they are doing. Would have given 5-stars but their estimating/billing process is a little clunky.

Really nice and not pushy. We just purchased a house and the insulation had evidence of rodent activity. We weren’t sure if they were still there or not, but had Cascade set some traps for 3 weeks before we had the attic insulated. The rodents were gone and I was not pressured into a lengthy contact service plan. Overall, a pleasure to work with and I’d call them again in the future.
