Portland Pest Control in the Fall
Ok folks…Fall is approaching fast here in the Portland, Vancouver area. As the weather cools down…pests try to hunker down inside our homes where it’s warm. If you are seeing ants now…it is far better to take care of them before the weather really turns. There are a few reasons for this…
1. Once it falls below 50 degrees outside…the ants are pretty much only active inside. It does very little good treating outside because nothing will come in contact with your treatment…really limiting the overall effectiveness.
2. Even if there is activity outside…most insecticides harden when it’s cold. When it’s hard… ants walk right across treated areas and don’t pick up anything. If they don’t pick up the material…it can’t do it’s job!
3. Only treating inside limits your options on the materials that can be used safely. When ants have entrenched themselves inside cavities of your home…without x-ray vision…it’s really difficult to know for sure exactly where they are. Patience is key!
If you live in the Portland, Vancouver area and have ants and you want them gone…better to call us now than later. But call us because we guarantee our pest control work.
