Bedbugs are an increasing nuisance because they have developed a resistance to pesticides available to the general public.
If bedbugs are a problem, then a professional exterminator is going to have to step in. Look for companies licensed for pest control by Oregon.
“Portland pest control services have access to treatment programs - eco safe pest control at Columbia Pest Control - which the general public cannot buy. We attend regular training classes to keep our permits for these materials current,” said Portland pest control expert Mike Giskaas.
These treatment programs go beyond bedbugs. Termites, carpenter ants, powderpost beetles and moths are all destructive creatures that can ruin a house if left untreated. They also have varying resistance to the treatment programs available to the average homeowner.
Homeowner pest control services in Vancouver also don’t always get rid of the entire infestation, Mr. Giskaas said.
“If you have pest problem, you’ve got to eliminate all of them. If you leave a few, they’re going to come right back and be harder to get rid of,” he said. “Professionals can go in and kill them all. In the case of termites, the best pest control companies also provide a multi-year guarantee and warranty. If the termites come back and cause damage, the pest control company will treat for no charge and repairs are covered by the insurance policy attached to the guarantee.”
Once the infestation is cleared out, the homeowner still has responsibilities for Pest control in Portland. Pests are attracted to places where they have food and water. Mr. Giskaas said it is important to eliminate their food sources. That means keeping the kitchen clean and all food secured in packages the pests can’t get into.
