German Cockroaches wreak havoc!

German cockroaches are a very serious threat to anyone that has respiratory problems. Their feces or dead bodies put our some nasty allergens that can cause allergic reactions and asthma. This is especially detrimental to young children or elderly. These roaches will reproduce in droves and their numbers can quickly expand.They have been known to transfer some diseases also. It is important to get started eliminating them at the first sign of infestation.

The insects can enter your home in many ways. Some examples: groceries, neighboring houses, piggybacking from baggage after traveling to name a few. They are also not limited to dirty conditions. I have found them in some of the cleanest homes. They can actually feed on proteins of some cleansers.

The Bug Guy will recommend 2-3 treatments (and sometimes more) depending on how severe the infestation. The Bug Guy will use a combination of spray, baits and possibly dust in order to gain control of the roaches. Feel free to give us a call for a free bid or if you have any questions.

Fleas are Here

istock_000032931008_largeFleas are being reported all around Oklahoma City. We are taking many calls. The Bug Guy recommends 2 treatments 7-10 days apart to get rid of fleas.

Adult fleas lay many eggs on any type of surface. We will come in and spray with an EGR added to our chemical. An EGR is a reproductive inhibitor that will affect them from laying more eggs. The first treatment will kill most of the fleas but the eggs will still hatch. This is why we recommend a 2nd treatment 7-10 days later.

We recommend vacuuming but not mopping after the treatments.  Once you know that the fleas are gone, then we recommend having your carpets shampooed, and mop hard surfaces that can be mopped.

Please feel free to call or email us if you have any questions and to schedule your treatment.
