Croach® professional pest elimination technicians and friendly customer service staff take your safety, health, and peace of mind very seriously.
Vancouver Climate a Haven for Pests
The moderate climate of Vancouver, WA makes it an ideal home for spiders, ants, wasps, and other insects. When it gets a little colder and wetter they love to move into your home. Situated on the Columbia River it is also a haven for rats and mice. Making pest control in the city critical.
Vancouver has many nature attractions, and many of them have historical significance. Take a chance to see the wildlife at the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge known for the Canadian Geese. Visit the Vancouver Land Bridge of Lewis and Clark fame. Stop by Vancouver Lake, or stroll the Columbia River Renaissance Trail and mix in some shopping with your nature. The geese and other animals are great in their environments. But there are others, pests that thrive in the area that are much less wonderful to see.
Rodent Control for Rats and Mice
Norway rats, roof rats, house and deer mice are a common problem in the Vancouver/Portland area.
According to a study by The American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, rats have favorite garbage food that includes scrambled eggs and macaroni and cheese.
They are not fans of beets, but they’ll eat just about anything humans do during the lean times.
These rats and mice in the wild are more dangerous than you might think. Not only do they destroy property and cause stress or annoyance in your life; but they spread illness and disease, and contaminate our food.
To help keep rats at bay, seal your garbage in rat-proof containers; clean up dog droppings, birdseed, and fallen fruits and berries from trees and shrubbery; and cut back shrubs and branches that are near or on the exterior and roof of your home.
Bugs and Stinging Insects
The loathed brown marmorated stink bug has made itself known across Washington and Oregon.
It is the cause of millions of dollars in property damage in the Atlantic states – a scenario we want to avoid here with 3.1 billion dollars of tree fruit at risk in Washington.
It is a nuisance pest in homes and office buildings where it seeks warm shelter during the colder months.
And it emits the highly unpleasant stench of dirty socks when crushed. You can tell the brown marmorated variety from other stink bug species by the thin white bands on its antennae.
Yellowjackets, hornets, and wasps are also a concern for Vancouver, particularly when they build a nest near or on your home. They are attracted in swarms to outdoor food and garbage. They may attack in swarms when agitated or disturbed.
Avoid wearing perfume, hair products, or other strong scents as well as bright colors such as yellow, orange, and red when spending time outdoors. But here’s some good news … Vancouver is the discovery site of a wasp, called Trissolcus Japonicus, that kills brown marmorated stink bugs!
Ants, wasps, silverfish, springtails, fleas, earwigs, and cockroach infestations are common problems here as well. We are also home to a variety of spiders including hobo, house, black widow, wolf, yellow sac, and brown recluse.
