Pest Control for Ant Infestations
As there are over 12,000 species of ants in the world, and most look pretty similar, how do you know if you are dealing with pavement ants or not? The most obvious sign of pavement ants is their nesting habits. Pavement ants prefer to build their colonies under sidewalks and driveways, pavement, bricks, stone, inside walls and insulation, or underneath logs and other concealed sites. The most common sign is piles of displaced soil near cracks in pavement or walls. If you notice any signs of a possible ant infestation, give Edge a call. All Edge locations have an Associate Certified Entomologist on call that can correctly identify the pest you are dealing with. As one of the best pest control companies in Portland, Edge is available within 24-48 hours of your call to terminate your pest problem.
Once ants enter your home, an infestation can happen quickly. Pavement ants eat almost everything - grease, fruit, sugar, grains, and dead insects are a few of their favorites. The best way to prevent ants from entering your home is to limit their access to food or water. To limit sources of food, make sure to properly clean after food prep and dining and to properly store all pantry items. Sweep and wipe down floors to avoid leaving behind food crumbs. Seal any cracks you find in the foundation of your home or driveway and clear logs and other debris away from your home. If you happen to find a trail of pavement ants in your home and are in desperate need of pest control in Portland, do not fear - Edge Servicing has you covered.
