Oregon and Washington Pest Control | Carpenter Ants
Over the years…ants have been a problem for many home-owners in Oregon and Washington. Spring 2011 has been no different than previous years. Although this has been a cool Spring so far…the ants don’t seem to have noticed. Odorous house ants have always been a big concern but this year Carpenter ants seem to be on the uptick. We have seen a significant increase in calls from new customers seeing larger ants with wings.
If you are seeing larger winged ants inside your home…you need to take it very seriously. Large winged ants are breeders. This means there is a well established carpenter ant nest nearby. It can take years under the right circumstances for a nest to start producing breeders…this means they may have been doing significant damage to your home. It is important to not only knock out the infestation but also figure out how and why they have chosen your home.
Just because you may see a flurry of winged ant activity and then the activity seems to diminish on its own…this is normal. Unless you have had a professional treatment done they are still doing damage.
We guarantee all of our Carpenter ant treatments without expensive long term contracts because we look at why they seem to be attracted to your home and make suggestions for permanent correction. We also only use the absolute best materials and employ the most effective methods for optimal long term results.
Our philosophy is if we can take care of your pest problem with a one time treatment…we are being truly green and protecting the environment and offering a better value.
