The North Central neighborhood of Gresham is marked by vibrant residential communities and humming commercial areas. This charming pocket of Gresham is growing at an exceedingly rapid pace, and that growth, while exciting, presents vulnerabilities in the residential areas of North Central Gresham. Pest control, carpenter ants specifically, may be the most pressing of these revealed susceptibilities.
Carpenter Ant Control
Carpenter ants do more damage than any other wood destroying insect in our area. Although termites get more attention, carpenter ants are far more common in North Central Gresham. A fully developed nest can do considerable damage to a structure and should be addressed quickly.
Carpenter ants do not actually eat the wood in your home — they excavate galleries in the wood for nesting and laying eggs. If you identify a substance that looks like sawdust, this could be a sign of carpenter ants. Food for the carpenter ant nest is usually found outside as they feed on other insects and parts of plants. For this reason, an effective way to exterminate carpenter ants is to do a solid perimeter treatment, knowing that the ants must cross it in order to bring food back to the nest.
