Where To Look For An Ant Infestation:
- Near a food source like your pantry
- Near a source of moisture such as leaking pipes
- In hidden, protected places like beneath appliances
Keep Your Home Pest-free
There are a lot of steps you can take to prevent an ant infestation, from fixing leaks and spills around the house to moving mulch and woodpiles further away from your home. Sometimes, however, it’s not enough, and you find yourself facing a few thousand unwanted guests. Pestlock is here to help.
Ant Control for Portland/Vancouver
There are hundreds of ant species in the U.S., but fortunately residents of Portland, Vancouver and the surrounding areas often only have to deal with one of three species. Identifying the ant species that is invading your house is key to determining the best pest control solution. Species like moisture ants, carpenter ants, and odorous house ants are looking for shelter, food, and water, and your home can offer all three if you’re not careful. If you don’t want to be harboring unwanted pests this season, contact PestLock for pest control you can trust!
Why Work With the Pest Control Professionals
There are several options for pest control available at your local store, but we encourage you to turn to the PestLock team for help instead, especially when it comes to dealing with an ant infestation.
There are several common species of ants found in Vancouver and the surrounding areas, and each has its own unique habits, habitats, and behaviors. Pest control is not a one-size-fits-all solution, especially if you are looking for optimal results the first time around. The professionals at PestLock can identify the exact species you are unintentionally playing host to and customize an ant control treatment to your situation.
Safe, Effective Treatments
Another reason why ants can be hard to treat with store-bought solutions is because many don’t address the larger colony. There can be thousands of individual ants hiding within your home, and treating only the ants you see will only lead to frustration and disappointment. PestLock can offer ant control treatments that target the entire colony.
You should also keep in mind that many pest control options offered in stores contain harmful chemicals that can damage your home or your health if used improperly. If you trust your ant infestation with a PestLock team, you can rest assured that we’ll use safe treatments properly. All our pest control technicians are trained and highly qualified to help you handle your ant control concerns quickly and effectively.
