Bug Guy - Pest Control OKC

The Bug Guy In Full OKC Pest Control Action

April Showers Brings… Many Bugs and The Need For OKC Pest Control!

Have you ever wondered why those pesky bugs are more active during warm spring and summer months? Ants, flies, wasps, spiders… all those creepy bugs have something in common; they need time to reproduce! The reason you’ll start to see more pests in warmer months is because they’ve had more time to lay enough eggs and potentially produce thousands of babies. This season is when The Bug Guy is in full OKC pest control action!

Not many would argue when we say that Oklahoma’s weather patterns have been just plain crazy this year. From the wet, damp rainy days all the way to the extremely and unusually warm spring days; we’ve had it all! It isn’t surprising that these fluctuating temperatures have created the perfect storm for incubating a staggering amount of reproduction for various insect species.

Did you know it only takes one burst of wet weather, for example, to create a breeding ground for flies? The astonishing part is that flies have the capability of laying up to 900 eggs! The offspring can then hang around for nearly a month afterwards. Annoying, right? If you’ve seen an increase in flies around your home in the last few weeks, it could be a result of rainy days all the way back in April.

On the other hand, many bugs start to make their way out of their resting places when temperatures become more stable and when weeds, flowers, and grass are alive to help the insects have places to hide and feast. This is why after the rainy month of April, comes the many bugs of May and the much needed use of OKC pest control.

As the busiest bug season is about to be in full swing, it might be wise to schedule your OKC pest control appointment as soon as you can. Our OKC pest control team will be serving the OKC metro area and we’d love to add your home to our list of stops to help keep your yard protected.

Record setting high temperatures!

Oklahoma City is experiencing record-setting high temperatures this week. With warm weather here it is the perfect ingredient for insects to start appearing. We have already started taking calls on spiders, ants, and termites. It is important to keep up a regular schedule of pest control treatments to prevent insect infestations, especially during this warm week. Spiders and ants will be increasing their activity in order to survive. Termites are active all year long. Do not let an infestation occur. Call The Bug Guy for a free bid for treatment. We would be happy to inspect your home at no charge and make any recommendations that may be needed!

The ants are marching in!

Yes, the ants are marching in. The winter conditions will push ants inside. They do not like the cold and too much moisture in the way or rain, sleet or snow. Ants need dry warm areas to build colonies. Ants will forage for food and enough moisture to sustain their colonies. Once ants have established this the colony will grow to cause sometimes heavy infestations inside your home. To help prevent ant infestation it is imperative to eliminate places around the exterior of your home that ants can thrive in. Such as piles of leaves, rock piles, wood piles or thick landscaping areas. The Bug Guy also recommends having your house treated around the exterior to help prevent ant infestations for occurring. Please call us if you have any questions or concerns.
