Learn why the majority of Aspen Pest Control’s new clients love the Home Protection Plan’s year-round service. Have you ever considered preventative pest control? If you’re like most folks, the answer is, “Probably not.” We tend to think of pest infestations as things that happen to us vs. things that we could take minor steps to avoid.

How to Treat Carpenter Ants In Washougal

carpenter ant damage to home

Carpenter ants can cause significant damage to your home Carpenter ants have a justified reputation for being destructive little creatures. Though they may not have the notoriety of the termite (or the termite’s association with billions of dollars in property damage) they can nonetheless cause significant damage to your home or other buildings on your property if they were to go untreated.  Carpenter ants likely made their way inside your home due to moist or rotting wood. Unlike termites, who actually consume wood, carpenter ants burrow their way through wood, preferring dead,...

Spider control is comprehensive pest control The way in which pest control experts deal with spider infestations is largely based on a two-prong strategy, one that is designed to achieve the sort of results that any home or business owner would want.  The first aspect of treating for spiders is based on assessing what other pests you likely already have.

And it makes sense, since termites are probably a much more commonly known insect, known specifically for consuming wood and causing potentially billions of dollars in damage to people’s homes, businesses, and building materials. In fact, carpenter ants and termites are altogether different creatures. Termites feed on wood, whereas carpenter ants are incapable of digesting...

Do I Really Need Year-Round Pest Control?

Pest Control Year Round

Pest control is often thought of as a “call on it when you need it” sort of service. We understand that, most of the time, most folks aren’t thinking too deeply about extermination services. After all, that’s our job, not yours.  But here’s the thing we would encourage you to to consider: Pest infestations tend to reveal themselves at precisely the time when they’re most inconvenient.  Say you’re about to host some family and friends to an outdoor get together when you suddenly discover that you have a wasp’s nest on your covered porch.
