Protect Your Seattle Property From Mice & Rats
Entrance Detection & Exclusion
Rodent removal doesn’t work unless you understand how these resourceful little creatures are getting into your home or business. If you’re having rodent problems, give us a call! We offer extensive rodent inspections in and around the Puyallup, WA area.
Rodent control requires several steps when it comes to getting rid of rats and mice entirely. First is finding out how they are gaining entrance and closing those entry points. The next step is trapping and eliminating the mice or rats that are currently wreaking havoc on your home or business.
At Whitworth Pest Solutions, we inspect your home and/or business for every possible rodent entry point. Our technicians are trained in the behavior of mice and rats and know where to start looking based on the type of infestation you are experiencing. Once we find the entry points, we block them with material that mice can’t chew through, stopping the infestation from growing. Our services don’t stop there; we also clean up the damage left behind by the rats or mice.
Rodents don’t just come into your home or business, eat have a meal, and then leave willingly. They build nests, chew and destroy insulation and leave behind droppings, which create foul odors and bacteria. When you contact Whitworth Pest Solutions, we inspect for nesting places of these pests and clean areas that have been soiled or damaged.
If you are seeking a pest control company in Seattle that follows the process from beginning to end, contact us and see what we can do for you. We service both residential and commercial buildings, and our knowledgeable technicians will ensure the job gets done right. Rats and mice don’t stand a chance once we get involved!

Restoring Damage Done by Rodents
Often, it’s not enough to repair rodent access points. Sometimes the crawl space under the building or attic area above has been soiled by rodent feces and urine to the point where there are serious odor and sanitation issues. Also, the insulation may have lost much or all of its effectiveness as well as become soiled.
