Keeping Ants Out Of Your Portland Home Or Business

Ants crawling across a leaf

Ants. We’ve all seen them. We’ve all had them crawl over our feet, make dirt mounds in our gardens, or converge on a piece of fruit we accidentally dropped on the ground. Ants are one of the most common insects around, and for the most part, we can live peacefully with them. However, in some instances, they can become a nuisance or a more serious problem for our Portland homes or businesses.

If you’ve ever had tiny ants get into your house, you know how annoying it can be. No sooner do you take care of the one you saw crawling up your cabinet door than you discover two others on your counter. It seems as though once one ant finds its way into your house, many more follow suit, and that’s exactly what happens. Many ants get into houses and commercial facilities while foraging for food. They leave a pheromone trail for other ants to follow so that those ants can also get to the food source and help carry it back to their nest. Ants that forage for food in your house can contaminate your food, causing illnesses in your family members. They can also be a major nuisance.

Other ants can cause more serious problems in your home or business. If carpenter ants get inside, they will damage the wooden elements in your building. If they aren’t taken care of in a timely manner, carpenter ants can cause significant structural damage.

Once ants get into your home or business, you shouldn’t wait around for them to leave on their own. Instead, you need to take advantage of the home pest control services in our area. Kanga Pest offers ant control in Portland that is designed to address ant biology and behaviors in order to effectively solve your ant problems.


Our Ant Control Services

An ant infestation in your home or business is not a fun situation to deal with. Although many ants in our area are more of a nuisance than a threat, you still don’t want them crawling all around your kitchen. Furthermore, because there are so many different types of ants in Portland, if you don’t know how to identify different species of ants and aren’t familiar with the best treatment methods to deal with each species, you won’t get far with DIY ant control.

That’s why Kanga Pest is your best choice for ant pest control treatments. Not only have we been learning about ants since we were children growing up in Australia, but we are also experts on the most effective methods for ant control. We know that using just one method or product will be ineffective at controlling your ant problem. We also know that the needs and habits of ants change throughout the year, which means that the treatment that is most effective in the spring won’t be the most effective method in the fall. Because we are knowledgeable about ant habits, biology, and control, we can offer you the best service possible to take care of your ant problem, regardless of the species that is causing issues around your home or business.

The products we use for ant control include gel baits, granular baits, crack and crevice aerosol applications, and exterior non-repellent applications. Exterior trailing ants are baited with a mix of granular and gel baits. We rotate between carbohydrate-based baits and protein-based baits, depending on the season. All of these products are slow-acting products that work extremely well for social insects like ants. The liquid products work slowly enough for the ants to travel back to the colony and transfer that product throughout the nest. The baits work similarly, except in a physical form.

Our ant control services are available on a one-time basis or as a quarterly service. If you choose the quarterly service, we’ll provide our initial treatment, then return 30 days later to address any lingering issues. This is the first of the quarterly services that will then occur every three months. Regardless of whether you choose a one-time or quarterly service, you’ll also receive a full service for other common insects, such as spiders and wasps. De-webbing and wasp nest removal are also included in both programs.

Our one-time ant control treatment includes a 30-day warranty. Our quarterly ant control service comes with an unlimited warranty. Both are transferable in the event of a home sale.
