Everyone knows gutters inevitably get clogged with leaves, branches, mulch, and other debris. But those aren’t the only hazards that can end up trapped in your home’s gutters if you’re not careful. Dangerous and aggressive pests like bees, wasps, and hornets can infest your gutters, potentially posing a risk to any outdoor activities around your home — and opening the door to the pests invading the inside of your home. That’s why here at Gutter Empire, we’re committed to bringing you affordable, thorough gutter cleaning in Portland so you can enjoy your home worry-free.
As fall ends and winter begins, pests are driven to find new places to shelter. If your gutters are clogged with rotting debris, that makes them a giant blinking neon sign for stinging insects. These pests prefer to nest in sheltered, moist places — and clogged gutters fit the bill. As a result, these pests are one of the most common infestations of gutters. If you’ve noticed an uptick in the number of bees, wasps, or hornets, and especially if they seem to favor a particular area of your home or yard, then there’s almost certainly a nest not too far away.
If you suspect your home’s gutters have been infested with aggressive pests, then don’t wait until you or one of your family gets stung. Annual gutter cleanings should be your first line of defense against the buildup of debris that can become nests for pests. And to keep your gutters clean, Gutter Empire is proud to offer a range of gutter guards for Portland weather so that you never have to worry about your gutters becoming a breeding ground for pests.
