Clackamas is replete with charming family neighborhoods full of school-aged children. The parks bubble with activity, the community centers brim with enthusiasm, and the very streets hum with the laughter of youngsters as they revel in the comfort of the landscape. These children, however, are often responsible for the sticky-fingered foibles that so often attract sugar ants.
Sugar ants (also called Odorous House Ants) are probably the most common pest problem that we get here in Marshalls Park and in Clackamas as a whole. They are the pesky black ants that cover your kitchen and swarm every sweet thing that your kids leave behind. On top of being the most common pest in the area, they are also one of the hardest to exterminate.
Sugar ants are distinguished by the distinct smell that they give off when they are squished. The smell has been described as anything from a rotten coconut to gasoline. Although they do not do any damage to the home, they can multiply quickly and spread out across the home.
At Wildwoods Pest Control, we employ an approach to pest control called “Integrated Pest Management,” we believe that each home should be treated differently because each home is unique. Clackamas’s many varied neighborhoods each have specific needs and vulnerabilities. Wildwoods has served Portland area communities for several years and can create timely and effective solutions to all your wildlife and pest control issues.
