Clackamas Pest Presure
Clackamas, Oregon, is known for its lush, green landscape, eco-friendly mindset and numerous outdoor activities. However, Clackamas’s wet climate makes for the perfect conditions for certain pests to thrive. Pests like cockroaches, ants domestic rodents and termites, which do well in moist, humid areas, are commonly found in Clackamas as well as other cities and towns across the Pacific Northwest.
The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that termites cause billions of dollars in structural damage on a yearly basis. But residents can help prevent termites. They can take action by eliminating any leaks or plumbing problems around the home and property, such as the roof or siding, because termites need moisture to live. Additionally, wood that is in contact with the ground and rainwater drainage should be addressed. Identifying termites can be difficult, so Clackamas residents who suspect an infestation should contact a locally licensed pest control company immediately. These experts also may be able to conduct yearly walk-through inspections to help prevent an infestation.
Clackamas has taken a different approach to control of certain pests. City staff have planned to release a million ladybugs and green lacewings, instead of using insecticides, to help control harmful insects and keep them from damaging hanging flower baskets and ornamental plants throughout the downtown area.
The city has recognized that not all insects are bad, but some pests like mosquitoes can be problematic. Mosquitoes thrive where there is standing water. These pests can spread illness, such as West Nile Virus, and should be treated when found. Residents spending time outdoors during the early morning or evening hours are encouraged to wear long-sleeve tops and pants in addition to applying an approved mosquito repellent when recommended by a health care professional to help repel and reduce mosquito bites. In addition, certified pest management professionals can help treat these pests with the use of insecticides and the elimination of the water sources in which mosquitoes develop.
