Now that summer is here, ants are making their presence known in Gresham and other parts of the Pacific Northwest, and as a home or business owner, you have a choice as to how you keep your property free of unwanted guests. You might want to try a DIY pest control solution with something you find at the hardware store, or you might want to call a professional team with more than 20 years of experience to handle it the first time.

What Doesn’t Work With Ant Infestations

Trying to address an ant infestation on your own comes with a number of complications. For one, ant control solutions usually contain chemicals that can pose a risk to your health and safety if used improperly. There are also a number of factors that can make DIY treatments ineffective if you don’t have the right expertise or experience.

Spraying insecticide on only the ants you see, for example, doesn’t address the larger colony. Bait insecticides may not be attractive to the ant species you’re targeting, there may not be enough to address your infestation, or the bait may be passed over for other food sources. The best, most cost-effective ant control solution? Working with the professionals.
