Insects and rodents not only give people the creeps, many of them are also a real hazard to buildings as well as the health of the people inside them. They carry allergens, spread bacteria, destroy electrical wiring, eat away at wood, and spoil human and pet food supplies. Many times, when you have seen one, there are hundreds, even thousands, more that you cannot see. Or, they may be around without the slightest hint that they are there. Family Home Pest Control is your exterminator in Gresham. Our expert pest control services keep your home or business free of these unseen hazards so you can relax, knowing your home and health are being protected.

How do you prevent pests?Pest prevention depends on what you’re trying to prevent. Some best practices we always advise customers to follow are to keep all food items (including those for pets) in air-tight containers. Make sure there are no leaks in your home (including the attic and basement). Mechanical exclusion involves sealing off all entry points into the home. This is difficult for homeowners to accomplish without help, but you can keep your lawn and surrounding areas clean and free of debris. If there are any trees or bushes that provide roof access for pests, move these away from the home or trim them shorter than the roof line.
How do you control pests?Our exterminators use the right method for the job. We take into account the property, pest type,
and residents of the home. Certain methods aren’t used when small animals or children are present. We always target our efforts as well. That means identifying paths your pest uses, where they are present, and using their feeding areas and times against them to achieve the fastest and most complete results.
How is pest control done?
There are three types of pest control procedures:
- Biological pest control: This uses chemical agents and may involve baits, pheromones, sprays, and repellants.
- Physical pest control: Exterminators manually remove pests and use control methods like barriers, sealants, and environmental manipulation to control pests.
- Mechanical pest control: Mechanical devices include traps, bait stations, and other devices designed to prey on the behavior of a specific pest.
