Business owners and managers throughout Portland, Seattle and the Pacific Northwest and Intermountain regions understand that insects and rodents have the ability to damage stock, cause structural damage and will even tarnish a reputation earned by hard work. Bed bugs, flies and rats are frequently cited as commercial pests but with spring just a week away, it is time to start thinking about protecting your facilities from annoying ants. From nuisance pavement ants to damaging carpenter ants, these invading pests tend to arrive along with the warmer weather and may negatively impact your company’s reputation and brand if left unaddressed. At Sprague Pest Solutions we know just how damaging these insects can be and that is why we offer effective commercial ant control in Oregon, Washington, Utah and throughout our coverage area.
Although both ants are annoying and tend to infest facilities to seek out food, the carpenter ant is the larger of the two pests and is generally found foraging in and around a structure while pavement ants tend to live in cracks and crevices of pavement and concrete. Carpenter ants feed on wood and wood by-products found in and around a business as opposed to pavement ants that prefer a diet of honeydew, insects, sweets, fruit and even greasy foods. Of the two species, carpenter ants are the more destructive pest and will feed on the structure of your facility as well as items contained within and have the ability to cause severe and extensive damage. Pavement ants, on the other hand do not cause structural damage to your facilities, but they are a common ant to infest commercial facilities especially where food is found. Not only annoying, the small black- brown ants may create an eye-sore and discourage customers.
