About us

An ant infestation as with any pest is bad news. Some signs of a serious ant epidemic are:

  • Debris excavated for nests (dirt piles)
  • Visible trails of ants foraging
  • Audible excavation within walls
  • Tunneling in moist wood
  • Foraging tubes on outside walls or dead trees (frass)

But by the time you see these signs it’s more than likely too late for you to do anything about it using just shop bought extermination control. And besides even if you get rid of one danger the ants will more than likely come back.

Plus many cheap insecticides are ineffective and bad for the environment.

Attics, crawlspaces and just about anywhere else in the home is at danger!

You need to act fast and call us – 855-268-9675 (855-ANTWORK)!

And check out our range of services for home defense and extermination. 

One of our certified and skilled employees will carry out an inspection, and make recommendations or prepare your home for a full extermination.

You Need Us, Call Us…Anytime. No Obligation. No Contract.

If left uncontrolled the situation will quickly get out of hand. For example, a colony of Carpenter ants has been known to exceed 100,000 workers. With this size of problem during the mating cycle your house could be filled with flying ants.

Be Adamant About Your Ants!

Ants are highly adaptable, social creatures. If there’s a way into your house they’ll find it and once they’re inside they won’t go away without our help.

We guarantee all of our pest treatments without requirement of a contract.

WE’RE GREEN

We want to help protect the environment.

We use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) practices in all of our natural treatments.  We reject the use of cheap, ineffective, insecticides. Our professional, skilled employees use slow acting, non-repellent materials for the extermination and control of ants. This type of technology allows us to control infestations by getting to the root of the problem:

The colony.

This certified practice allows our exterminator to use less of the product while still exterminating the ants.

There are eight major species of nuisance ant in the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington areas and we’ve listed them here for you. Antworks Pest Control guarantees complete removal with all of our ant treatments because we practice unique methods and use materials specifically designed for the control of these pests:

  • Small amounts of slow acting non-repellent material  
  • One-time treatment
  • Environmentally Safe
