Home pest control and exterminators in Vancouver WA and Portland OROf all the investments you may make in your lifetime, your home is by far the most important. To protect this investment, as well as the health and safety of your family and pets, home pest control must be a top priority.

Unfortunately, the invasion of insects and other pests may not be immediately realized until evidence of damage is noted. For instance, termites and carpenter ants can do thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to the wooden structural components of your home before the actual insects are seen.

Professional Home Pest Control

Regardless of the diligence and care taken to keep pests from gaining access to your home, sometimes the little invaders manage to enter anyway. When this happens, over-the-counter pesticides may be the answer to eliminating them. However, use these chemicals with caution, especially around children and pets. Read the instructions carefully, noting all safety precautions and warnings.

Many people choose a professional exterminator for home pest control. While the cost may seem higher than doing it yourself, many times it takes only one treatment by an expert exterminator to eliminate the problem. The homeowner can also choose how much protection to purchase for their property. Professional exterminators can be hired to eliminate an obvious problem on a one-time basis, or can be contracted for regular preventative treatments to keep pests from coming back.

An additional plus to using a professional exterminator is that he or she is trained in finding out where pests have gained access to your home, as well as locating any nests where an infestation may be imminent. Professionals also know how to treat a multitude of pest infestations, such as rats, mice, cockroaches, bed bugs, bees, wasps, powder post beetles, and other insects that may be lurking nearby.

Prevent Pests Before They Become a Problem

Fortunately, there are preventative measures that can be taken before pests can gain access:

  • Regularly inspect the home for cracks in the foundation or other imperfections that pests can use to gain access.
  • Do not allow grass to grow close to the foundation of your home.
  • Eliminate standing water in or around your home.
  • Do not allow uncovered food to be left out for long periods of time. This includes pet food.
