Cockroach- OKC Pest Control

OKC Pest Control Reports Of Cockroaches Inside And Out

OKC Pest Control Provides Cockroach Prevention

There have been many reports from families of cockroaches appearing outside in their lawn and sidewalks. Then, there is the fear that they will migrate into the home. It’s almost as if the song lyrics “no wind, no rain…can stop me baby” were really written to describe the never-ending will of cockroaches. If it’s one thing our OKC pest control team understands it’s that an infestation of uninvited pests like cockroaches is not just problematic due to them being a bother, but they can also cause household damage and health problems.

The truth is that even clean homes can provide a comfortable habitat for cockroaches with the three main things they need to survive; food, water, and shelter. If you have cockroaches or you know anything about their nature, then you’ll soon come to realize they are one of the most persistent pests which are very difficult to get rid of. Of course, our OKC pest control expertise would share that having pest control treatments at least 3 times per year (spring, summer, and fall) would be the best method to keep these critters away.

In addition to eradicating your cockroach pest problem with ongoing OKC pest control treatments, we would also recommend taking some preventive measures between those sprays. Here are a few ways you can help keep your home cockroach-free:

  • Store food in sealed containers.
  • Don’t leave pet food and water out overnight.
  • Tightly cover garbage cans containing food scraps.
  • Take trash out regularly.
  • Don’t let water accumulate anywhere in the home.
  • Don’t leave clutter around.
  • Close off places where pests can enter and hide.
  • Check for pests in packages or boxes before carrying them into your home.

If you’re home has become targeted by any uninvited insects staking claim in your space, don’t let them continue crawling around! Give our OKC pest control team a call as we’d love to help!

Honey Bee- Pest Control OKC

How Hornet Control Via Pest Control OKC Helps Save Honey Bees!

Pest Control OKC: Get Rid Of Hornets And Save The Bees

Did you know that the most common honey bee we know in Oklahoma once originated from Europe? Most amazingly, European honey bees are now one of the most familiar insects and are becoming well-known for all the good that they can do in our lives. In addition to honey production, it is estimated that honey bees also provide nearly $20 billion annually from pollination of over 100 cultivated crops. Doesn’t that sound like a good enough reason alone to save these little bees? Our pest control OKC team sure thinks so!

Luckily, many of you are already aware and care about the conservation of the European honey bee population. For those of you who don’t know, there are a few ways to prevent the killing off of these important insects. The most common sense ways would include not trying to kill them or spray them with any sort of pesticide materials. In addition, getting rid of hornets in your yard, by using such methods as our pest control OKC team would utilize, could actually help save the bees, too!

You may be wondering how that makes sense. Let our pest control OKC expert explain.

The fact is that an individual hornet can actually kill up to 40 European honey bees in just ONE minute! Think about how much damage an entire group of hornets can accomplish. In case you need a visual, estimations suggest that a group of 30 hornets can take out an entire hive containing 30,000 bees in less than four hours.  The hornets are brutal when they attack the nearly defenseless honey bees as they swoop in and dismember their bodies. The hornets then fly back to their own nests with the bees’ thoraxes in tow to utilize as food for their larvae.

The only sure-fire way to ensure that your yard stays hornet-free is to have ongoing pest control completed. Our pest control OKC team would love to help you keep your yard safe and in turn allow European honey bees to continue living. If you need help with pest control services, please feel free to give The Bug Guy a call at 405-973-5522.

*Important Note: If you should have a bee problem, do not try to kill them yourself. There are plenty of reputable companies in Oklahoma that will offer save removal and relocation of the bees for you. For the love of bees, please do your research and give one of those companies a call if you notice bee activity on your property!
