Top 3 Pests In Tulsa

I recently had the opportunity to talk with one of the pest management professionals at Bulwark Exterminating Broken Arrow, OK and picked their brains about all things pests. One of the questions I was most looking to get answered was “What are the most frequently called about pests in the Tulsa area?”

Here are the top three most common pests in the Tulsa area:

3. Crickets

It came to a little bit of a shock to me to hear that crickets were one of the most frequently called about pests in Tulsa. To me, crickets just seemed like a tiny nuisance; with their chirping being more a calling of summer. As a kid, I loved staying up past my bedtime, swinging on the porch swing, listening to the crickets. It was a summer right of passage of sorts. After addressing my cricket beliefs with the pest professionals at Bulwark Pest Control, I discovered just how much of a pest crickets really can be.

The truth is that crickets will attack all types of different materials, causing alarming amounts of damage. Often it is synthetic fabrics that are most damaged, although cotton, wool and silk are also attacked as well. Additionally, you never see just one cricket… they come in bunches! They will even enter our homes looking to eat any organic material they can find. On top of that, crickets like the mole cricket tear up the grass in your yard with their burrowing/nesting habits.

One of the most disheartening factors that come into play regarding crickets is that that attract other pests (like brown recluse spiders) that are looking to eat them. Serious cricket infestations require professional Tulsa cricket control.

2. Ants

One of the peskiest and annoying pests found in the Tulsa, OK area are ants. Ants come in second on our list of the most frequently called about pests; perhaps because there are so many different types that infuriate homeowners. Carpenter ants, Pharaoh ants, and the dreaded Fire ant are all common ant invaders. Tulsa is also seeing an influx of the crazy ant as well. Depending on the species of ant; ants can damage electrical equipment, destroy your yard with their massive mounds, chew through the wooden structures of your home, and inflict painful stings.

If you are frequently seeing ants crawling throughout your yard, or even entering your property, it’s best to get professional Tulsa ant control before the problem worsens.

1. Brown Recluse Spiders

 

Brown Recluse Spider

It should be no secret that the most frequently called about pests in Tulsa is the Brown Recluse spider. A lot of this attention is garnered from the reputation this spider has. It’s gotten to the point where if anybody even sees a brown spider in their home, they’re calling in because they’re afraid it might be a Brown Recluse. Unfortunately, this reputation is well deserved. Brown Recluse bites are dangerous, and although rare, can be deadly. A bite can even cause necrosis; a symptom in which the skin rots and dies after a bite. People are willing to deal with a few roaches in their home, but when it comes to a Brown Recluse spider, they go running for the nearest phone to get professional Tulsa Brown Recluse control.

10 Preventative Measures To Avoid A Brown Recluse Spider Bite

Brown Recluse Spider

There’s no question that the Brown Recluse spider is on of the worst feared pests in Tulsa; unfortunately, these spiders are also some of the most common. Seeing one of these toxic spiders in your garage or shed is enough to make you lose it, but if you find one in your Tulsa home… Heaven help you!

Despite their unpopularity amongst Tulsa homeowners, I do have some fortunate news for you. First, Brown Recluse spiders are very shy and timid pests that will only bite if unintentionally (or intentionally for that matter) disturbed or threatened. Second, there are a few preventative measures that you can take as a homeowner to decrease the unlikelihood of getting bit by one of these dangerous and deadly spiders.

Here are ten preventative measures to avoid a Brown Recluse spider bite:

*** Important*** if you believe you have been bitten by a Brown Recluse spider, seek medical attention as soon as possible!

10 Preventative Measures To Avoid A Brown Recluse Spider Bite

 

Inside The House

1. Keep rooms very well lit. This includes opening blinds and curtains, as well as the doors to your closets. Brown Recluse spiders love hiding out in un-lit areas.

2. Keep clothing and shoes that you don’t regularly wear in sealed storage boxes, or inside sealed plastic bags. Make sure lids are airtight, and that possible box entry points are taped.

3. Never leave you laundry, whether clean or dirty, on your bedroom floor. Many Brown Recluse bites occur when handling or wearing temporarily discarded clothing.

4. Give your clothes and shoes a good shake before putting them on. A Brown Recluse pressed up against your naked self will certainly end badly!

5. Do not let any part of your bed touch the floor. This may include eliminating bed skirts. You don’t want extra company in your bed tonight… At least not company that has eight legs!

6. Move beds away from the curtains and walls in your bedroom. Before crawling into bed at night, thoroughly inspect your bed and bedding. Many Brown recluse bites occur while crawling in bed, or while sleeping.

Outside The House

7. Firewood stacked up against your home is essentially a Brown Recluse resort. These spiders will move right in! Make sure firewood is stacked away from your home, and that the pile is up off the ground and properly covered.

8. Cracks, holes, and crevices, old weather-stripping, etc… Seal them up! These make for easy access into your home.

9. Any shrubbery that is near your home (closer than 18 inches) needs to be trimmed back or replanted. Brown Recluse spiders love lurking in these secluded areas because of the abundance of water and other insect meals.

10. Tree branches will act like an interstate for Brown Recluse spiders that want to come inside your home. Trim these branches so they don’t touch you home.

How To Spot A Brown Recluse Infographic

The Brown Recluse spider.

With each word, that line gets more and more terrifying.

The Brown Recluse spider is a staple to Tulsa, right along with Sooner football and fried catfish. Unfortunately, the Brown Recluse isn’t nearly as fun as screaming “boomer sooner” at the TV screen while you’re elbow deep into a bucket of fried catfish.

The Brown Recluse spider has earned its malicious reputation because of the nature of its bites. If you are ever bitten, chances are you won’t even know it until it’s too late. It takes about a week before you’ll experience pain from a Brown Recluse bite. About this time, the infected bite area will be red, with shades of grey and purple. As the wound progresses, the living tissue will begin to decay and die; a symptom known as necrosis. Yikes!

Well, its easy to establish how awful a Brown Recluse bite is, and we know we don’t want them in our homes. What we don’t all know is exactly how to spot one.

The following infographic, is a guide to understanding and spotting Brown Recluse spiders:
