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.

Exterior Treatments

Why You Should Hire Professional Roofing Services In Oklahoma

Oklahoma Roofing

Oklahoma Roofing

There are several skills you should have as a homeowner. Being able to make small repairs on appliances is a skill that could easily save hundreds of dollars. Even furniture assembly and basic plumbing can go a long way, and learning how to do most of these tasks is not difficult either. But a task such as roofing your house is better left to the professionals. Roofing is a daunting task that requires days of hard labor to complete. And without the proper tools or knowledge of safety on a rooftop, it can be downright dangerous and costly.

Roofing that is not done properly can result in a leaky roof which can cost even more money to repair in the long run. A better option is to hire roofing professionals whether you live in Oklahoma or elsewhere. But the last thing you want is to end up with a bad experience, which is why doing research prior to hiring a reputable company is so important whether you have your roof repaired or reshingled. Even seemingly easy tasks such as removing leaves should be left to professionals.

There are plenty of roofing specialists in Oklahoma but only a select few are fit for the job.

Why You Should Hire A Professional

There are several benefits of having a professional company to the work on your home. One of which being is the money you will save. There will always be initial costs involved. But an incorrectly done roof will always carry significantly more costs just for additional repairs. And in regions such as Oklahoma where annual precipitation is over thirty inches per year, the resulting damage can be catastrophic.

Professional roofing companies have tools specifically for roofing tasks. And the fact that roofing jobs can be fatal is another reason to hire professional roofing services. The slants coupled with hard manual labor could result in serious injuries in the event of a fall. Professionals are fully prepared and equipped to handle such tasks. And their level of experience tends to be much higher than the average homeowner.

Roofing also takes a large amount of time depending what needs to be done. A professional could end up working a full day or even longer on your roof. Attempting to handle such a task on your own without proper knowledge or experience could very well take several weeks for completion. Coupled with all of the other responsibilities you have in your life your time is better spent elsewhere.

Tornadoes are also frequent in Oklahoma, more so than other regions. This means that high winds often occur. And roofing in Oklahoma can be damaged or even completely removed during intense tornadoes.

Roofing won’t feel like such an impossible task when you take your time to find the right business for the job. The quality of workmanship that a professional roofing company brings is in your best interest. It will pay off in the long run and will keep your roof in the best possible condition to battle the elements for years to come.

Three Useful Tips For An Oklahoma Home Buyer

Buying a home is one of the greatest decisions one could ever make. Unlike any other purchase, a home is a lifetime investment that really needs to be thought out and planned. It is that one thing that you and your family couldn’t live without, aside from food, water and all the other necessities in life. Come to think of it, if you just buy a house without even considering the things that need to be considered, you will be stuck in a place that you might not like for the rest of your life.

If you are a first time home buyer in Oklahoma, there are tips that might be useful for you in order to make a wise investment and avoid having to experience bad things in your future residence. These tips are aimed to help you make an informed decision on which house to purchase.

Tip 1: Find good neighbors.

 

Even though you don’t literally live together with your neighbors, whether you like it or not, they will have an effect on your household. It is important that in buying a house, you should always consider the type of people that live within the area. You wouldn’t want to be around suspicious, careless or cold-hearted people. So before making a decision, try to make sense of the surroundings and the people around the property. It might even be a good idea to meet the neighbors surrounding your home before you decide to make the move. Some other considerations are the stores, schools and facilities nearby; it would be most beneficial to live in a place that is highly accessible to these resources.  If you think that they are good enough and that they wouldn’t cause problems with your living situation, then the house for sale may be included in the options available for a final decision. 

Tip 2: Take a look at the property.

 

If you find a house for sale and it seems to be a great deal, then go and personally assess whether it really is. Sometimes, marketers oversell their products, so it is important that you verify what is true and what is false. You shouldn’t base your decision on the ads you’ve seen. Advertisements are there to attract you in any way possible. As a wise buyer, you need to do your due-diligence and make sure you don’t get deceived. Visiting the location of the house and assessing the area is the least you could do to ensure that your future home is just the way you want it to be.

Tip 3: Consider the present and future value of the property.

 

Part of making a wise investment is to consider its value, not just the present, but also the future. As an investor, you wouldn’t want a house that costs you a fortune today, but will lose value after years down the road. First and foremost, you want to make the best investment possible. So your main goal should be to buy a house that you can live in and make money on when it comes time to sell. You never know, there might be unpredictable circumstances in the future that may cause you to sell your property. As a , you need to do your homework, be patient and know what you want.

The Honey Bee: State Insect of Oklahoma

A European honey bee (Apis mellifera) extracts...

The honey bee is the most common state insect in the United States. It’s so common in fact, that it is the state insect 17 different states. These 17 states that have the honey bee as their state insect include: New Jersey, Missouri, Arkansas, Nebraska, Georgia, Louisiana, Kansas, North Carolina, Kentucky, Vermont, Maine, Mississippi, South Dakota, Utah,  Wisconsin, and of course… Oklahoma.

So Which Species of Honey Bee Is It?

There are actually seven different honey bee species, with another 44 different subspecies. So which species of honey bee are State legislatures referring to? My guess is that these state legislatures were simply assigning the honeybee as a state insect in its truest and purest form. The genus Apis are only true honey bees recognized by scientists.

In the case of Oklahoma, the state insect is actually defined as the European honey bee.

Why Is The Honey Bee The Most Common State Insect?

Honey bees are dynamic and hardworking insects that work together as a society for the betterment of the hive as a whole. When you recognize the parallel of a bee hive, and a state’s society, it’s easy to see why so many states have claimed the honey bee as their official state insect. A modern civilization would love to get just 20% of the honey bee’s work ethic out of it’s citizens. In any prosperous civilization each honey bee has a designated role within the hive. The bee does it’s job, no questions asked. A honey bee is so dedicated to it’s cause, that it would even give its own life for the preservation of the hive and the queen.

Oklahoma designated the honeybee as official state insect in 1992. It would love for it’s citizens to emulate the dynamic and hardworking of a honey bee; and their hive.

The European Honey Bee

The European honey bee is also referred to as the Western honey bee. They are virtually found everywhere in the United States, and on other continents like Europe and Asia. Of course, they are found in Oklahoma, including the city of Tulsa.

European Honey bees are beneficial insects that assist in the pollinating of flowers and flowering plants. These honey bees live in a hive and are grouped together in castes of queens, sterile female workers, and fertilizing males. A single European honey bee hive can carry up to 80,000 bees.

Unfortunately, honey bees do sting. There are actually 14 deaths annually caused by reaction from a honey bee sting. Deaths occur when allergic reactions take place. They are rare.
