Pest Control in the Portland, Vancouver area after the 4th of July
It’s after July 4th, 2011 and just about everybody has spent some some time around the outside of your homes recently. You may have noticed some ant, spider, hornet and other activity along with all the BBQ and fireworks. This is actually a good thing! All of these insects actually help keep other insect species in check. It’s when they invade our homes that we become concerned…naturally!
Often times it’s alot easier to prevent an infestation by taking some simple steps.
All insects are attracted to moisture. This time of year we get alot more sunshine and heat and the ground actually dries up a bit. Any areas of continuous moisture will be like a little an oasis in a desert for our little friends. Excessive watering of the lawn and plants and gardens…too close to your home can make you a target. Closed crawlspace vents, vegetation coming in contact with your siding and roof can also be problematic.
Sometimes after letting things go a little bit and even when we are vigilant…we can get a persistent infestation from pests. It’s certainly reasonable to try and solve this problem on your own but if you need help…call us!
We guarantee all of our work and we use only the safest, most effective products available. We will do a thorough inspection to figure exactly whats going on and why…we take care of the problem and then inform you of the things you can do to make the treatment last that much longer.
Our treatments last longer and our customers are happier because we take care of their pest problems and help them to be less likely to be a target in the future.
Just check us out at the Better Business Bureau and Angies List websites to see how we roll.
