ANTS

About
Because they’re social insects, ants are one of the hardest pests to eradicate.
Their nests are often well protected or hard to access. Colonies can number up to 500,000 and will uproot and relocate quickly when threatened. Fortunately, we specialize in the eradication of ant colonies.

That’s what we do, we follow a long tradition, and we’re one of the best.

The Nuisance
Ants can be found in just about every corner of the home: wall cavities, crawl spaces, cellars, and kitchens. Wherever there is available food or potential building materials you’ll invite ants.
Some types can even cause structural damage to homes.

The Treatment
Shop-bought chemical insecticides aren’t the answer.
They kill only the ants you can see.
Our skilled employees use a slow acting, non-repellent material that allows foraging ants to live long enough to carry a large dose of the non-repellent back to the colonies and share it with others.

Home Defense
When you know what ants love and how they get about it’s easy to control their return. We guarantee our pest control services with an ONE-TIME treatment that is cost effective and environmentally safe. But we also want to help you identify risks to future infestations, so why not try the following:

Clean up regularly

  • Keep areas clean and free of clutter
  • Avoid standing water
  • Avoid keeping sweet or greasy foods out in the open
  • Check pipe and electrical conduit openings and seal up
  • Damp wood, rotting wood
  • Seal up cracks and crevices

Bedbugs

Like the German Cockroach, you can become infested by bringing bedbugs into your home with used furniture, appliances, etc. You can also acquire bed bugs in infested beds at hotels or they can simply jump on your luggage when you travel. Unfortunately, there are several ways you can get a bed bug infestation and like a cockroach they can be very difficult to get under control. Bedbugs are highly resistant to most insecticides, requiring a thorough inspection and treatment. Portland pest control includes treating cracks, under baseboards, infested luggage, light and power outlets, and more. We also employ mattress covers and interceptors.

Hornets
Regardless of the species, yellow jacket or bald face for example, they are considered a social insect. Some of some of the same pest control materials as used for ants, are also effective for hornets. The potent material used is so effective, that it is the only material needed when ridding of the pests.

Spiders

Pest control for spiders include knocking down webbing as well as treatment around eaves, doors, windows, ceiling and wall junctions. Treatment also consists of crawlspace and attic with ULV machine, foundation walls and outside perimeter of the structure.

Roaches

This pest can be very difficult to control under even the most ideal conditions, but bait and non-repellent materials work best to control this pest. Roaches tend to gravitate toward moist, food related areas, so it is imperative that cracks, behind refrigerators and stoves get treated. Often this pest requires some sort of follow up. The most common cause of infestation is by bringing this pest into your home or business on used furniture, appliances, cardboard, etc.

RODENTS

About
Rodents are some of the most adaptable creatures on the planet.
Because of this can be extremely difficult to exterminate.
They can easily adapt to their surroundings and even learn when to avoid traps and baits! So too do they reproduce very quickly and throughout the year.

The Nuisance
The areas that present the optimal conditions for rodents are wall cavities, crawl spaces, cellars, and attics. Rodents destroy agriculture and spread serious diseases through their saliva, feces and urine; they’ll also bite if cornered.

The Treatment
Home remedies for rodents are very often not successful and you should call Antworks Pest Control (855-268-9675 (855-ANTWORK)) if you suspect you have a problem. Our skilled employees will use appropriately certified materials to combat the infestation…and prevent the return of any animals.

Home Defense
When you know what rodents love and how they get about it’s easy to control their return. We guarantee our pest control services with an ONE-TIME treatment that is cost effective and environmentally safe. But we also want to help you identify risks to future infestations, so why not try the following:

Clean up regularly

  • Avoid storing large amounts of cardboard
  • Identify and seal entry points
  • The best defense is EXCLUSION!
  • keep>

Box Elder Bugs

Treatment on days of high infestation is the most effective. Pests will typically return around the same time next year, so it is important to consider planning treatment ahead of time.

Fleas

Flea treatment requires a lot of preparation, but is a straightforward pest control process. Treatment includes carpets, furniture, areas frequented by pets and the pets themselves. It is advised to plan ahead before flea treatment because treated surfaces require at least four hours untouched.

Pantry pests

Indian meal moths and fruit flies are just a few of the common pantry pests that are treated. Portland pest control includes getting rid of infested food, treating harborage areas and sometimes employment of pheromone traps is necessary.

COCKROACHES

About
Cockroaches are super-resilient and difficult to control because of this.
They reproduce quickly and year-round and they’re nocturnal, so with plenty of food, warmth, water and nesting sites in your home, they will quickly create big problems.

The Nuisance
Cockroaches hide in moist places to breed and will be found behind refrigerators, sinks and stoves, as well as under floor drains and just about anywhere they can fit. They spread disease and set off allergies but so too can they damage your home.

The Treatment
Shop-bought chemical insecticides aren’t the answer.
They kill only the roaches you can find…if you can even find them!
Our skilled employees use a slow acting, non-repellent material or bait for cockroaches but we’d always want to follow up with a cockroach treatment because of their feisty nature.

Home Defense
When you know what cockroaches love and how they get about it’s easy to control their return. We guarantee our pest control services with a ONE-TIME treatment that is cost effective and environmentally safe. But we also want to help you identify risks to future infestations, so why not try the following:

  • Clean up regularly behind fridges and stoves
  • Keep kitchen and sanitary areas clean and free of clutter
  • Avoid standing water
  • Check pipe and electrical conduit openings and seal up

TERMITES

About
Like ants, termites are social insects and therefore hard to eradicate.
Their nests are often well protected and full of tunnel systems. Colonies can uproot and begin a new nest somewhere else quickly.

The Nuisance
Termites may be found in wall cavities, crawl spaces, and attics; basically, wherever there is moist or decaying timber. The subterranean and dampwood termites found in the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington areas can cause extreme structural damage to homes.

The Treatment
Our skilled employees use the same slow acting, the non-repellent material they use for ants and other social insects.

Home Defense
When you know what termites love and how they get about it’s easy to control their return. We guarantee our pest control services with an ONE-TIME treatment that is cost effective and environmentally safe. But we also want to help you identify risks to future infestations, so why not try the following:

  • Remove deadwood or decaying timber
  • Don’t let wood on your home contact the soil
  • Keep gutters clean and avoid standing water
  • Check pipe and electrical conduit openings and seal up

SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE

NAME: SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE
SPECIES: Reticulitermesflavipes
LENGTH: 6mm
LIKES: Dead plants and wood
HIDEOUTS: Underground, foundations
SKILL-SET: $1 billion per year in property damages

Know your termite…!

There are over 2,300 species of termite in the world.
In the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington areas we’ve got two big problem wood destroyers:

The Subterranean Termite and the Dampwood Termite.

It’s vital to get a positive ID on the type so our professional employees can treat the problem accordingly.

Both eat wood and destroy your home and both have one queen per colony which can lay tens of thousands of eggs in its lifetime, so which is which?

Easy! The way we at Antworks Pest Control can tell these two species apart is by the way they build their colonies and the way they use the wood of your home.

The Nuisance

Subterranean termite colonies are hard to locate being underground.
Because they like to keep their nests moist they’ll cover their tracks.
They create a series of chambers and tunnels under your house which can lead to serious structural damage.
They’ll work their way from the ground up if the conditions are conducive!

If you have a subterranean termite infestation you might see signs of:

  • Termite mud tubes
  • Damaged wood
  • Injured trees in the vicinity
  • Hollow-sounding walls
  • Blistering and warping of wood surfaces
  • Swarmers
  • Piles of shed wings

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.

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.

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

If left uncontrolled the situation will quickly get out of hand.

The Treatment

Our skilled employees use the same slow acting, non-repellent material they use for ants and other social insects. We’ll also treat the soil below the problem area and make recommendations to follow up.

Home Defense

When you know what subterranean termites love and how they get about it’s easy to control their return. We guarantee our pest control services with a ONE-TIME treatment that is cost effective and environmentally safe. But we also want to help you identify risks to future infestations, so why not try the following:

  • Remove deadwood or decaying timber
  • Don’t let wood on your home contact the soil
  • Keep gutters clean and avoid standing water
  • Check pipe and electrical conduit openings and seal up

DAMPWOOD TERMITE

NAME: DAMPWOOD TERMITE
SPECIES: Neotermescastaneus
LENGTH: 20mm
LIKES: Dead plants and wet wood
HIDEOUTS: Wood in contact with ground
SKILL-SET: Colonies can reach 4,000 individuals.

 

Know your termite…

All species of termites have evolved to survive environmental extremes.
The high precipitation levels we have in the Portland Oregon and Vancouver Washington areas provide breeding conditions for the dampwood termite.
They’re just as much of a problem to homeowners as their subterranean cousins.

It’s vital to get a positive ID on the type so our professional employees can treat the problem accordingly…and we’ve got some useful guiders to help you.

Both eat wood and destroy your home and both have one queen per colony which can lay tens of thousands of eggs in its lifetime, so which is which?

Double Easy! The way we can tell these two species apart is by the way they build their colonies and the way they use the wood of your home…

The Nuisance

Dampwood termites are found in areas with damp or soaked wood, hence their name.
They can invade damp wood that’s touching the ground and make chambers in it.
Just as with the subterranean type, if the conditions are optimal colonies of dampwood termites can become very large and can cause extensive property damage.

If you have a dampwood termite infestation you might see signs of:

  • Internally smooth hollowed out wood structures
  • Hollow-sounding walls
  • Swarmers
  • Piles of shed wings

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 like termiticdes.

If left uncontrolled the situation will quickly get out of hand.

The Treatment

Our skilled employees use the same slow acting, non-repellent material they use for ants and other social insects. It is also best to remove the infested wood and address the problems that are causing the wood to get wet in the first place.

Home Defense

When you know what dampwoodtermites love and how they get about it’s easy to control their return. We guarantee our pest control services with a ONE-TIME treatment that is cost effective and environmentally safe. But we also want to help you identify risks to future infestations, so why not try the following:

  • Address plumbing issues
  • Avoid areas of standing water
  • Remove deadwood or decaying timber
  • Don’t let wood on your property contact the soil
  • Keep gutters clean
  • Check pipe and electrical conduit openings and seal up

And one more thing

Dampwood termites need moisture to survive. This makes them marginally easier to treat than the other species.
Eliminating their source of water from pipes and roofs can prevent repeat infestations.
What’s more, if you keep piles of debris, soil or wood that could potentially become wet or rotten, then moving this to a safe distance from your property will also prove a good line in home defense.
