Pro Tip

An improper application of pesticide can make an ant problem worse, not better.

Central Oregon has many species of ants. A proper pest control strategy must begin with the identification of the ant species. Odorous house and pavement ants shouldn’t be controlled using the same methods that would be used for the carpenter ant. All ant species are social insects. Some species have only one queen for each colony, other species have multiple queens per colony. The pest control strategy for each species must consider that species unique biology in order to have effective results. Using the wrong pesticide method can make your ant problem worse, not better.

Alpine Pest Management can identify your ant species and then use the proper pest control measures for that species. If you have an ant problem, please call us at 541-389-4942.
