Ants In The Kitchen You Actually Wanna See

If you like classic rock…you’ll love these guys. Check them out at http://www.antsinthekitchenband.com …If you see these Ants In The Kitchen…call me because I want to come join the party!

Pest Control in the Portland area in the Fall

Ok folks…cooler temperatures and rain means Fall is upon us. The cool temps are a double edge sword. Yes…insects become less active outside but when ants become entrenched in the home…they can be more difficult to control. There are a couple reasons for this. One is since they are less active outside…it reduces the effectiveness of the treatment outside. If fewer ants come into contact with the treatment…it can take longer for treatment to take full effect. Two…the treatment itself is actually effected by the cold. It kinda becomes less sticky to the ant. We want the ant to pick up enough of the treatment to share with the nest mates.

I think the point here is…don’t wait until Winter if you are having an ant problem or it may be a long Winter.

Most other pests here actually become a bit less of a problem except…Rodents! Rodents have been busy reproducing during the warm months. As things cool off they start to look for a warm place to hold up. The good news is YOU can go a long way on your own in dealing with Rodents. Sealing up your crawlspace, making sure all of your doors close correctly…including garage doors. If you can see light coming through the bottom of your door…it’s not sealing correctly and you may get visitors. If this happens…you can call us because we also take care of your Rodent problems.
