Spring Pest Control

In more temperate regions like the Pacific Northwest, ants reemerge as a problem pest in the spring, and they can haunt you throughout the summer and fall. They are seeking shelter from the rain as they forage for food, and your home offers a tempting source for everything they need. The greatest problem when facing an ant infestation is the fact that they are persistent, and it’s difficult to get rid of the entire colony, especially when you are depending on DIY solutions. The team at PestLock has the equipment and expertise to help you take care of the problem at its source.

Common Ant Species

One of the first steps to effectively treating an ant infestation is identifying what species is invading your home. Each has different habits, habitats, and behaviors which can influence the effectiveness of certain pest control solutions. When you choose to work with PestLock, you are choosing a professional team that will determine the exact nature of your pest problem and develop a customized solution.
