Pest Control OKC: Keeping Commercial Buildings Pest Free

Just like homes, commercial properties are also subject to insect invasions. The difference is that as a business owner, the liability is greater. You may think that your office building is safe from pest problems until an issue arises. By that time you could be facing more serious troubles as you attempt to keep employees and customers from enduring bites, stings, or messy work stations.  No matter what you’re in the business of doing, just know that our pest control OKC team is in the business of keeping commercial properties like yours free from bothersome pests.

If you have employee break room areas, keeping them clean is an important task for controlling bugs. Of course, clean places are subject to pest invasions, as well. Even the most “well built” establishments have been known to develop cracks in doors, walls, and drain pipes which are all easy entry ways for a variety of pests. With fall weather bringing in cooler temperatures, it’s the perfect time for bugs, especially, to begin seeking shelter indoors. They’ll also look for water and food sources wherever they can, so that’s why it’s vital to take notice of what is going on in your commercial building.

Our pest control OKC team would be more than happy to help ensure that your business keeps buzzing in all the right ways. So, if you notice a small problem, it’s best to call right away rather than waiting for full on infestation.

If you are able to locate the reasons for bugs entering your commercial property, you should consider paying someone to correct the issue,  as well, to prevent further insect problems.

If you’re already in need of commercial property pest control OKC services, please feel free to contact our team. You may reach our pest control OKC team by calling The Bug Guy at 405-973-5522.

Pest Control OKC Discusses Facts About Gnats

Pest Control OKC: A Little Bit About These Little Insects

Do you notice any swarming gnats around after your 4th of July holiday celebration? Gnats may not seem like a big deal, because of their tiny stature, but they can quickly become quite the annoying problem. Today, our pest control OKC team is going to share a little bit about these small insects.

Here are some facts about gnats that our pest control OKC team wanted to share with you:

  • Even as fully grown adults, gnats remain tiny. They are usually no larger than 33mm.
  • There are also a few different species of gnats; some that bite and some that do not bite.
  • Their diets vary from plants, other insects, or blood.

Some species of gnats are are helpful in pollinating plants as they eat other pests which seek to destroy crops such as aphids and scales. Others, like the Hessian fly, feed on the plants themselves.

The fungus gnat is well known for laying eggs in house plants that have been watered too much. They are attracted to soil, and the fungus in the soil. Furthermore, they enjoy feasting on roots and root hairs of plants.

The black gnat (also known as black fly) will feed on blood. These gnats have been known to carry parasites and transmit diseases to livestock and humans.

Our pest control OKC team hopes that by now you can understand that these little flying insects are capable of some destructive behavior. Moreover, due to all gnats being so small it may be difficult to identify which species you’re seeing.

If you have a swarm of gnats that just seem to hang around, the first thing you should do to help keep the situation under control is attempt to locate their food source and correct the problem. Second, it may be a good idea to schedule a pest control inspection if you struggle to get rid of the insects on your own.

Our pest control OKC team would be happy to help with your pest control needs. If you need us, give The Bug Guy a call at 405-973-5522.

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.
