Gresham, Oregon Pest Control
At one point, prior to the civil war, Gresham was just a campground where pioneers rested until moving further west to Portland. Now the sprawling city boasts a population of over 100,000 and ranks as the 4th largest city in the state of Oregon. Unfortunately, alongside this bustling population of humans is an even larger population of pests.
Needing pest control in Gresham, Oregon is very common. Among the pests that we commonly treat in the area, sugar ants seem to be the worst offenders. although a sugar ant (known as an odorous house ant) is a great annoyance, they are not dangerous to you or your home in any way. They are very difficult to exterminate because the queens have the ability to reproduce quickly and move the colony (this is called “budding”). Generally this increase in reproduction and movement is caused when home owners use pesticide products that are repellents on the ants. Since there are no “non-repellent” sprays that are available over-the-counter that we know about, budding happens often when ants are treated by the home owner.
In commercial areas, we have also experienced a lot of calls for cockroaches, bed bugs and fleas. These pests can often be found in multi family dwellings and are spread very easily. Unfortunately, if you are living in an apartment and your neighbor brought these pests with them, there is little that you can do to avoid getting them yourself.
