Home and Business Owners in Portland Can Learn Best Practices to Prevent Pests
Portland, Oregon, United States of America –April 5, 2016 – Established Portland, Oregon exterminators Columbia Pest Control Inc today came out in support of the upcoming National Pest Management Month in April 2016.
“Pests are a fact of life, and everyone needs to be looking out for signs of potential infestations before they spiral out of control. Better yet, pro-active measures to deter pests are the best cure for this issue,” said Mike Giskaas, owner of Columbia Pest Control. “National Pest Month has been helping to raise public awareness of pests for the past three decades, and we’re proud to stand by the National Pest Management Association by helping our customers—and also giving them tips and tricks that keep not just pests, but the resulting exterminators at bay!”
Whether rodents in the pantry, termites munching the woodwork, health-threatening cockroaches and ticks, pests of all kinds find multiple cozy new homes in America daily—and make no discrimination between a home, office or retail space.
National Pest Month offers simple tips and tricks that anyone can put into place while significantly reducing the threat of an infestation. Some, such as eliminating sources of moisture, also protect property from other threats, such as rising damp and mold.
Others require a little gardening, such as pruning branches that sway too close to homes—and provide walkways for rodents. Above all, National Pest Month emphasizes the importance of keeping a clean, non-cluttered home where all food—including trash—is sealed, preventing access to food for hungry unwanted guests.
However, even with vigilance, pests can still slip through the literal cracks. Both National Pest Month and Columbia Pest Control recommend that should people suspect that an infestation is in progress, contact with a licensed exterminator is vital.
