Pest Control In Washington Terrace, UT
Because we live in Utah, you might think we'd get a break from pests – especially in the winter. However, the cold and the snow are part of what makes Weber County pest control so tricky. Pests, particularly pests that are not native to Utah, often become partially or completely dependent on human climate control and food stores to see them through the winter. That means you've got to be vigilant for pests in Washington Terrace all year long. Don't worry, though; Mountain West Pest has your back!

Commercial Pest Control In Washington Terrace
Businesses of all types must have commercial pest control services in place to ensure their customers' safety and their businesses' continued viability. Pest problems are much more than just a nuisance to businesses. They can rob you of your livelihood. Having just a few pests can get you terrible reviews online and ruin your business reputation. What's worse, they can get you fined or sued. Rodents or roaches might sicken a restaurant's customers or employees, while bed bugs can infest a hotel's rooms and hitch a ride home with guests, and termites can undermine the structural integrity of your commercial space.
With all this at stake, you have to take pest issues in your commercial space seriously. Our commercial pest control process starts and ends exactly the way our residential pest control one does: with a thorough inspection and follow-up visits to prevent reinfestation. We design our services to handle pests in a variety of commercial spaces, including retail facilities, medical facilities, restaurants, multi-family rental spaces, and more.
Are You Attracting Wildlife Creatures To Your Washington Terrace Property?
Utah has vast wilderness areas and lots of national and state parks, so it is no surprise that wildlife control can be a big problem in our area, especially during lean winters. Common wildlife problems include raccoons, skunks, bats, and porcupines. People also often forget that rodents like squirrels or rats and mice are technically wildlife as well.
You might think a raccoon rooting through your garbage every now and then is no big deal. However, wildlife can cause many more problems than just ripping the trash out of your outdoor cans. Rodents can chew through everything from fiberglass insulation to electrical wiring. Raccoon and bat bites can expose you to rabies. And every wild mammal can introduce secondary tick and flea infestations that can transmit their own infections, including Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. That's why you need to take steps to ensure you're excluding wildlife from your property.
Unfortunately, this is easier said than done. Storing your outdoor garbage in wildlife-proof containers and sealing off entrances to your home can go a long way toward making your home less attractive to these pests. Still, if wildlife has made it into your home, the truth is you'll likely need professional help to deal with wildlife problems because many wild animal species are smart enough to get around prevention measures. But don't worry, the professionals at Mountain West Pest are here to help!
The Dangers Cockroaches Bring To Your Washington Terrace Home
Having cockroaches in your home is just as bad as having wildlife. As a general rule, roaches cannot do the same property damage that wildlife can, but when it comes to spreading disease, roaches can edge out even rodents. These nasty vermin are known or suspected to spread over forty different pathogens – everything from viruses to bacteria to parasites can hitch a ride into your house on cockroaches.
The good news is you can do a lot more to keep roaches away than you can to defend against wildlife:
- Cover all trash with tight lids.
- Seal off potential entrances to your home.
- Clean up after meals and wash dishes immediately.
- Store all pantry foods in airtight containers.
- Fix moisture issues around your home.
- Declutter to reduce roach hiding spots.
Taking these measures can go a long way to ensuring you never develop a cockroach infestation, but they're not 100% effective. So if roaches break through your best prevention measures, contact us here at Mountain West Pest!
