Why pests invade our homes and buildings
There are many things that homeowners or owners of other buildings can do to help prevent pest invasions without using pesticides.
Pest control Conducive conditions refer to conditions that may either cause or indirectly lead to an infestation of a pest. For example, some conducive conditions relate to such things as rot, possible rodent entry points into the home, or conditions that make carpenter ants feel welcome when looking for a nesting spot. 
Attic Crawlspace Rodent Clean up of waste,replace damaged insulation,repair and replace duct work and sanitize &deodorize infected areas
Attic and Crawlspace clean-ups and securing to prevent infestation in the future. Excluding access points, sanitizing affected areas. Our goal is long term control. We will warranty our work for a year.
Rodents and other animals love to nest in our homes, particularly our attics and/or substructure crawlspaces resulting in serious compromises to our hygiene and costly damage to insulation, wiring and other structural components. Compressed and shredded insulation drastically reduces its R-factor equating heat loss and increased heating expenses.
What to look for when maintaining your home or building from Rodents: This allows rodents easy access to your crawl space under the building where they will damage the plastic vapor barrier, insulation and wiring with their feces, urine and constant chewing. They often go unnoticed until eventually finding a way into your living space.
How to get rid of Rodent: Make a new crawl space access door that fits properly. Damaged foundation vent screens must be either repaired or replaced. Use galvanized ¼” hardware cloth for the screening material. Depending on the type of foundation vent frame, use stainless steel staples, screws, or all weather heavy duty adhesive to attach the screen.

Burien is a suburban city in King County, Washington, United States, located south of Seattle. As of the 2010 Census, Burien’s population was 33,313, which is a 49.7% increase since incorporation. An annexation in 2010 increased the city’s population to about 50,000. ~Wikipedia
Burien  is a suburban city in King County, Washington, United States, located south of Seattle. As of the 2010 Census, Burien’s population was 33,313, which is a 49.7% increase since incorporation. An annexation in 2010 increased the city’s population to about 50,000.
Settlement in the Burien area dates to 1864, when George Ouellet (1831–1899), a French-Canadian born in Sainte-Marie-de-Beauce, Quebec, purchased his first of several land patents for homestead sites directly from a Federal land office. Ouellet had first arrived in the Washington Territory at Port Madison on Bainbridge Island, off of the Kitsap Peninsula, in 1858. Three years after purchasing his homestead in the Burien area, he married 14 year-old Elizabeth Cushner, who was born in the Washington Territory, and started a family. Several years later, the Ouellet family moved to the White River Valley, near Auburn.
A popular local tale recounts that an early settler named Mike Kelly gave the community its first name after he emerged from the trees and said, “This is truly a sunny dale.” Today, a few long-time residents still refer to the Burien area as Sunnydale. In 1884, Gottlieb Burian (1837–1902) and his wife Emma (Wurm) Burian (1840–1905), German immigrants from Hussinetz, Lower Silesia, who owned two taverns in downtown Seattle, arrived in Sunnydale. The tiny community was without improved roads or commercial buildings, reached primarily by trails. Burian built a cabin on the southeast corner of Lake Burien and reportedly formed the community into a town bearing his name (misspelled over the years). A real estate office was built and soon attracted large numbers of new residents to Burien. In the early 1900s, visitors from Seattle came by the Mosquito Fleet to Three Tree Point, just west of town to sunbathe and swim.
In 1915, the Lake Burien Railway was completed. It ran on what is today Ambaum Boulevard from Burien to White Center to Seattle. A small passenger train ran the tracks and was affectionately named by the residents, The Toonerville Trolley. However in the summer, squished caterpillars made the track slippery, and in the winter, the tracks iced over. Soon the Toonerville Trolley was removed.Late in 2004, the City assessed the possibility of annexing North Highline (which includes White Center and Boulevard Park), “one of the largest urban unincorporated areas of King County,” which would double the size of Burien. Many citizens spoke against the annexation and created picket signs and petitions to protest against it. Other citizens welcomed the expansion, as they felt parts of the so-called “North Highline” area should have been part of the original Burien incorporation, and the area in question is part of the larger Highline area. (The Highline area includes the cities of Burien, Seatac, Des Moines, Federal Way and an unincorporated area called “North Highline.”)
In May 2008, the Burien City Council proposed an annexation of the southern portion of North Highline, comprising 14,000 residents. In late summer of 2008, the City of Burien prepared to submit their annexation proposal to King County’s Boundary Review Board. However after the City of Seattle protested Burien’s proposal, Burien opted to withdraw their annexation plan and resubmit it after new countywide planning policies went into effect.
In October 2008, the Burien City Council voted to resubmit their annexation plan to the county Boundary Review Board. However, the cities of Burien and Seattle, along with King County and other stakeholders, first participated and completed mediation to ensure the interests of all parties involved were met. Affected stakeholders would have agreed to a preliminary annexation framework that stipulated how annexation would play-out between the cities of Burien and Seattle and with King County. However, the Seattle City Council voted against the agreement that February. It is not known if Seattle has any future plans for annexation of any part of the North Highline area.
On April 16, 2009, the Boundary Review Board of King County approved Burien’s proposal for annexation of the southern portion of the North Highline area. In early May 2009, both King County and the City of Burien passed resolutions to place an annexation vote on the August 18thprimary ballot. The annexation area voted on consisted of southern North Highline and had an area of about 1,600 acres (6.5 km2) and approximately 14,000 citizens. The ballot issue was approved by a majority of southern North Highline residents, and on April 1, 2010, southern North Highline became part of Burien.
After the annexation vote, a special census was conducted, and it was determined that the newly annexed area had 14,292 residents. This resulted in a new population total of 49,858, making Burien the 23rd largest city in Washington State. The Boundary Review Board approved a second proposal for Burien to annex northern North Highline (also known as Area Y) in February 2012, but this was rejected by Area Y residents in November 2012.
