Brown Recluse Infestation: Extreme Spiders Require Extreme Measures

Brown_Recluse_Spider_White_Background

It has been well established that Tulsa, Oklahoma is a hotbed of Brown Recluse spiders. These dangerous spiders can infest Tulsa homes by the hundreds, and even the thousands. If you are bitten by one of these spiders, you will experience necrosis, or tissue death. The dangerous and extreme Brown Recluse spider requires extreme measures.

Homeowner Brown Recluse Measures

There are a few things Tulsa homeowners can do themselves to eliminate Brown Recluse spiders, and prevent them from entering their home again. First, eliminate all harborage that Brown Recluse spiders hide in. this includes, wood piles, debris, excessive shrubbery, and clutter. Second, seal up any cracks or voids that lead to the inside of your home. Vents and light fixtures affixed to your basement and attic are easy entry points for brown Recluse spiders. Third, vacuum up any webs, spiders, and egg sacs with a wet-vac that has extended tubes to reach high places. Keep the wet-vac full of bleach and water to kill any brown recluse spiders you may suck up. Last, de-clutter your garages, basements, and attics as spiders like these areas. Use storage containers with tight fitting lids, and tightly seal any boxes with packing tape.

After you have taken these measures, call a professional spider control exterminator in Tulsa, OK. Remember, extreme Brown Recluse spiders require extreme measures.

Professional Brown Recluse Measures

 

Direct Contact Treatments

Pesticides can be effectively used when applied directly to Brown Recluse spiders. This treatment method is best used when large numbers of the spiders are grouped together. The problem is that this isn’t always the case with Brown recluse spiders, so this technique needs to be used in conjunction with other spider control techniques.

Exterior Treatments

After a homeowner takes a few steps to control the Brown recluse infestation, like removing harborage and sealing cracks, then the exterior of the home needs to be treated with pesticides. A pesticide spray barrier needs to be applied around a property and home. Aerosol pesticide needs to be injected in voids behind a homes brick veneer. Any crack in the exterior of the home should be treated with a pesticide dust.

Crack and Void Treatments

The most critical step in controlling Brown Recluse spiders is the application of pesticides in cracks and voids. The reason being is that Brown Recluse spiders prefer these spaces. These spaces include all of the plates covering electrical outlets of a home, which need to be removed and filled with pesticide. All crevices and cracks need to be dusted with pesticide. Holes may need to be drilled in a home’s walls as to treat all of the voids. Special attention must be paid to basements and attics with the application of pesticide behind insulation as well.

Spot Treatments

Spot treatments inside a home must also be used in conjunction with the other Brown Recluse spider control methods for best results. Areas that these spiders like to crawl, like along baseboards and behind furniture, need to be treated with pesticide spray. Spray wherever Brown Recluse spiders frequent.

How To Treat Fire Ant Stings

Fire Ants

The Red Imported Fire ant is one of the worst species of ants found in Tulsa, OK. On top of being very aggressive and destructive, these vicious ants also bite and sting. The fire ant’s sting is what makes this pest infamous.

Fire Ant Stings

If you have ever been stung by an ant, not bitten but stung; the culprit was a fire ant. Fire ants are the only stinging ant found in the United States. When stung by a fire ant, you will know it immediately. You will be in pain. The pain ranges from moderate to severe, depending on your body’s reaction to the fire ant venom. Once stung, the infected site will turn red. The area will eventually turn white and blister.

If you are stung by a fire ant, the reactions will subside after a couple days unless an infection sets in; or have insect allergies.

Common Fire Ant Sting Symptoms

  • Moderate pain
  • Burning sensation
  • Tenderness around sting site
  • Redness
  • White blisters
  • Hives
  • Inflammation
  • Itching 

Severe Fire Ant Sting Symptoms (Allergic Reaction)

  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Confusion
  • Disorientation
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting 

How To Treat Fire Ant Stings

If you have been stung by a fire ant, it’s important to remain calm. If you panic, your blood pressure will rise and the ant venom will spread further and faster.

If you have known insect allergies (bees), or are experiencing any of the severe fire ant sting symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. If you have been stung numerous times, having stepped on a fire ant mound for example, it’s probably a good idea to seek medical attention as well.

If you’ve been stung by a fire ant, and are not experiencing allergic reactions, you’ll likely be in pain for a few hours. Take an Advil. Clean the infected sting area with a mixture of water and bleach OR ammonia (not both). Water and meat tenderizer also works well. These concoctions will help denature the fire ant’s venom.

The pain from the fire ant sting will subside after a couple hours. The redness, the white blisters, and the itching will take a few days to alleviate.

Preventing Fire Ant Stings

In order to prevent stings from fire ants, you will need to take precautions. If you see one of the fire ant’s distinctive mounds, keep your distance. Point out fire ant mounds to your children—who are frequent sting victims. If one of these ant mounds is disturbed, the colony will spill out of the mound and defend it by attacking the perpetrator; crawling up feet and legs as they sting repeatedly.

One of the best precautions to take when dealing with fire ants is getting professional ant control. Ant control professionals are up-to-date on of the most effective methods to exterminate and control fire ants on your property.

Make the call today, and avoid getting stung by a fire ant!

Pest Control For Yellowjackets

English: a yellow jacket wasp

English: a yellow jacket wasp (Photo credit: Wikipedia) 

Yellow Jackets 

Yellow jackets are a species of predatory wasp that are common in the Tulsa, OK area. Yellow jackets are most commonly black and yellow in color, but are sometimes black and white and even have red markings. All female yellow jackets are able to sting multiple times. These stings will cause unbelievable pain, and have even caused death in a few rare instances.

Yellow Jackets

Yellow Jacket Nests 

Yellow jackets will build their nests in shrubs or trees; but prefer the protection of man-made structures such as hollow walls or flooring, attics, sheds, porches, and eaves of houses. A fertilized yellow jacket queen will take shelter in these protected areas during the winter months, and build begin building a new nest and laying eggs when the weather warms.

With summer just around the corner, now is the time that those stinging yellow jackets start looking for places to build their nests. Most homeowners will not notice a yellow jacket nest until late summer, when the wasps have had time to grow the nest and flourish on your property. From spring to summer a wasp colony expands very rapidly, reaching a maximum size of 4,000 and 5,000 workers.

If you eliminate the wasp’s nests now, while they’re small and still being built, it will prevent the likelihood of a more serious problem later this summer.

Controlling Yellow Jackets 

If you are seeing yellow jackets near the garbage cans of your home quite frequently, or near picnic areas and hummingbird feeders, it is a sure bet that there is a nest nearby. The first step to controlling yellow jackets around your property is to determine where their nests are. Open a can of chicken-flavored cat or dog food and place it near where you are seeing yellow jackets. They’ll soon find the food and you can follow their flight as they take it back to the nest. Now you’ll know if the wasp’s nest in on your property.

Once you have located a yellow jacket nest, it needs to be treated. While this can be done by injecting a pesticide into a hole drilled into the nest, or dusting the nest with a pesticide powder, it’s best to leave treatment to a professional. Attempting to spray the yellow jackets with an aerosol pesticide can result in numerous painful stings during the process. I repeat it’s best to leave the process to pest control professionals.

If you are going to attempt to exterminate the aggressive wasps on your own, opt for a “quick-freeze” aerosol product to eliminate stirred-up wasps near the entrance of the nest. Remove the nest completely after all of the yellow jackets are dead, so another colony will not make it their home in the future.

Pest Control In Tulsa 

Many homeowners will not take action against yellow jackets until somebody is painfully stung. Obviously by then it is too late. Take action now and properly eliminate yellow jacket nests around your home and property. Get pest control!

Impressive Award Given To Tulsa Bulwark Pest Control

Bulwark Exterminating Receives Angie’s List Super Service Award

This just in for 2013:

Bulwark Pest Control has been awarded Angie’s List Super Service Award 2012 for the Tulsa, Oklahoma branch. This particular honor is only awarded to a mere five percent of businesses reviewed on the customer review site Angie’s List. Angie’s List is a leading source for customer reviews.

Angie’s List Super Service Award 2012 award recipients have met stringent eligibility requirements. Some of these include: a company must receive a minimum number of reports; a company must receive outstanding “A” ratings from their customers; and companies must abide by specific Angie’s List rules.

Essentially, the Angie’s List Super service Award is voted on by you, the customer.

Customer Reviews Are Important For Consumers

Customer review sites, like Angie’s List, have given pest control customers more influence on the quality of customer service they receive. If a pest control company offers great products and service, like Bulwark Exterminating, the entire world can know about it. Conversely, if a company is servicing their customers poorly, the world will know about that as well; and consumers can avoid using such a company.

Recent data suggests that over 80 percent of consumers use customer review sites before making a purchase decision. In addition, 92 percent of consumers trust the reports they read on customer review sites; more so than any other source.

Here Are A Few Angie’s List Reviews for Bulwark in Tulsa:

I used the services of Bulwark Exterminating in April and then I used them again in the beginning of June. They came out and sprayed my whole yard. They were reasonable compared to everybody else. They were good. They were very professional. They were very nice and I scheduled an appointment and they were able to come out. They were able to shift me back for a 60 day redo and they came right out. I had no problems. I will use them again.

Overall Grade: A

- Angie B.
Broken Arrow, OK

Bulwark came out and did an entire treatment of my home. They started on the interior where they put product in my walls and under appliances. All the interior treatment was placed where the bugs live and hide and not where we live. It was nice to have a service man that cared about my family’s well being, especially since I have kids. The exterior treatment was thorough as well. They put a good barrier around the base. He followed up with some additional treatments by doors and widows. He even treated plant areas that were badly infested. Very good job.

Nice, professional, good service. Clean cut tech was on time. He explained each step. They will come back whenever need for no extra charge. He explained the money back guarantee. If we are every not satisfied we can call and they promise to do everything they can to make me happy…and I believe them. It’s been awhile since I have felt so impressed by a company.

Overall Grade: A

- Joe B.
Broken Arrow, OK

We are very happy with their work, they were very professional and answered any questions we have had…we have only had one treatment so far, but will continue to use them on a regular basis.

Overall Grade: A
