From Tacoma to Bellingham, homeowners and businesses in the Puget Sound region require ant control. Urban and suburban areas all have issues with ant pest control.

Structural Damage Caused by Ants
Certain types of ants, such as carpenter ants, cause damage to the structure. They can burrow their nests in wood and these nests can cause structural damage and jeopardize the integrity of the structure. Our ant control experts have an experienced eye on what to look for and will take the necessary action to exterminate the ant infestation. Ongoing ant control will protect your house structure from carpenter ant re-infestation.
Inside vs Outside Ant Control
Ant extermination extends beyond the walls of your home structure. Some ant species can cause real problems from outside your home. For example, carpenter ants have multiple nest sites – some within the structure and others in nearby stumps, logs or trees. They can pose a real threat to your home or business structure from ‘all sides’. They burrow through the walls and can create vast networks of tunnels. With enough time they can cause costly structural damage to your home or business.
Ant infestations inside the structure can also compromise sanitation. Many types of ants will taint food stored in a home. Ant control protects your food storage as well as your food-prep surfaces. This saves you money and will give you peace of mind. Cascade Pest Control experts use techniques to protect your food and kitchen from ant infestation.
Why Use Professional Ant Control Services?
Getting rid of ants is not as simple as spraying some pest control solution on a counter and hoping for the best. That could be hazardous to you and actually disperse the ants without eliminating them. Our ant control exterminators have the experience and knowledge to not only identify the ant species, but to accurately treat your ant problem safely and effectively.
There are types of ants where insecticide sprays make things worse. For example when faced with insecticide sprays, Tapinoma sessile—the odorous house ant will actually split up and make more nests. In this case using off-the-shelf solutions could double, triple, or quadruple your ant infestation. Effective ant control means using the right tools and extermination methods. Not all ants are equal, and our experts know how to attack each species.

Each type of ant causes different kinds of harm. Our expert technicians will assess each situation to evaluate the ant problem. Cascade Pest Control experts know how to spot the difference between species. This allows them to use the most effective ant control solutions to remove your ant infestation.
