Tulsa pest control

Tulsa is home to almost 400 thousand people. With all the people in Tulsa, there are a lot of homes that have pests. With so many homes with pests, Tulsa has a lot of pest control companies.  SO, how do you know what pest control company in Tulsa will protect your home properly?  Here are a few helpful tips to help save you money and headaches in the long run.

Look For A Pest Control Company That Does In-Wall Treatments 

When looking for a pest control company make sure they do an in wall treatment. Most pests will live inside the walls of your home. Pests really like this area mainly because it will protect them from the heat in the hot summer months, and it will also keep them warm during the cold winter months. Most pest control companies will just treat around the baseboard. Spraying around the baseboard will only kill some of the pests. A reputable pest control company places a product directly inside the wall, which will kill the pest at the source of the infestation.

Look For A Pest Control Company That Does A Power Spray 

The in wall treatment will do an excellent job on kill all the pests inside your home, but what about the outside. Preventing the pests from coming inside the walls takes additional efforts outside as well. Pest control treatments that are done correctly will have a power spray done around the foundation of the home. The power spray will have enough power to penetrate into the soil and under the rocks around the home. The power spray will also be able to place a strong barrier around your home; this will kill any pest trying to sneak in.

Look For A Pest Control Company That Granulates 

The power spray will work very will at preventing pest from coming in, but you also need to kill the pests at the source of the problem. Most pests will live at the base of plants and trees. At the base, pests will eat the roots and drink the water from the drippers. Using a product call granules will help kill the entire pest problem. The granules are activated from the water, and then the product will seep down to the base of the plants. If this part of the treatment is not done you will continue to see and here more pests.

Look For A Pest Control Company That Has Good Reviews 

Doing this kind of treatment will control the entire pest problem at your home. All three parts must be done or the problem will only get worse. A lot of pest control companies will try to do short cuts and cheat to save money. To see if a company is doing this, check reviews that costumers have posted.  Companies that use short cuts will have little to no reviews on the service. A company that is not taking any short cuts and controlling the pest will have the opposite, therefore have more reviews.  Good places to see how companies rate up are Google, Yelp, Better Business Bureau, Family Own Pest Control, and Angie’s list.  Doing this is the easiest way to see how other pest control companies work, and if they really are doing their job.

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:

Wasp Ruins My Labor Day

Stinging wasp activity, like that of the pesky yellow jacket, happens to peak during the late summer; and boy did I find out the hard way. I was stung… No, I was attacked!

Wasp Sting

Wasp Ruins My Labor Day

It was a typical Labor Day holiday. Like most Americans, I was spending my holiday outdoors, at a park, with my family. Among the sweet soda and grilling hotdogs, something sinister was lurking.

While enjoying my outdoor Labor Day picnic, I feel this small quiver underneath my blouse. I brush at it, thinking nothing of it at first, when I realize that ‘quiver’ inside my blouse has legs… and a bad temper! It’s a wasp who was flying happily along, and somehow flew inside my blouse, and it definitely does not want to be there. The wasp starts stinging. OUCH!!!

I started running around, frantically screaming! The people around me must have been wondering if I was on bath salts or something. Each time I slap at the wasp, my blouse shakes it loose. The wasp falls a little lower into all-new sections of my body; and the wasp would get mad again, and sting again!

Eventually the wasp made its way out of my clothes; or maybe I just mashed it. Either way, I was in pain. I began to swell up and itch. Needless to say, my fun day was over.

So much for a happy Labor Day!

Wasps

wasp

One of the scariest and most notorious stinging pests is definitely the mighty wasp. There are about 30,000 species of wasps in the world. They all range in color and size. The most common is definitely the yellow and black stinger, but they can also be brown, orange, bright red and metallic blue. Unlike bees, wasps can sting multiple times, but only the female wasp is able to sting.

In nature wasps are some of the most beneficial stingers. Most insects are preyed upon by at least one species of wasps. The adult wasp will eat only nectar, but will hunt out insects to feed to its young and growing larvae. Wasps are even used in the agriculture business as a way of controlling the pest population, because they will only prey on other pests and not cause harm to crops.

Wasps can be either solitary or social. We commonly see solitary wasps on flowers. All solitary wasps are fertile, and after laying an egg have no interaction with their larva. In social wasp colonies, generally, only the queen will be fertile. Nests are built in holes underground, in trees and plants, along riverbanks, and preferable in sunny spots.

Castes systems amongst wasps are not predetermined like in other bees. A female can earn her way to royalty by dominance and behavior. Some become queen, by being able to eat all of the other fertile females’ eggs and some by simply producing the most eggs.

Oklahoma Bats Dying

Bat showing symptoms of White-nose Syndrome

Across 28 affected U.S. states, an estimated 10 million bats have died because of a deadly white fungus associated with White-Nose Syndrome (WNS). In the last couple years it has been determined that the deadly disease has spread to the state of Oklahoma and the result could be devastating to the State’s bat population.

White-Nose Syndrome In Oklahoma

In May of 2010 disease surveillance discovered the presence of the white fungus associated with White-Nose Syndrome in northwest Oklahoma. Since then, the disease has spread throughout much of the state. This is very bad news for the 23 different species of bat that call Oklahoma their home. It’s important to note that WNS only affects hibernating bats; as 16 of the 23 species of Oklahoma bat are classified as hibernating.

White-Nose Syndrome affects hibernating bats by covering them with a white, fuzzy fungus. This fungus will alter the bat’s hibernation schedule, causing them to awake during the colder winter months in which they should be preserving their energy. The affected bats essentially burn through all of their energy reserves too early, before they can hunt for insect prey, and die of starvation. The white fungus can also spread to a bat’s wing membranes, and bodies, affecting their ability to fly, regulate body temperature, and blood pressure.

The hardest hit bat in Oklahoma is by far, the Cave Myotis. Other species of bat that scientists are extremely concerned about include: the Indiana bat, the Gray bat and the Ozark big-eared bat because they are considered federally endangered. At this time it is unknown how many bats have perished in the State of Oklahoma, but across the 28 affected U.S. states; it’s feared that the number of dead bats is approaching the 10 million mark.

The Importance Of Oklahoma Bats

Most of us in Oklahoma think of bats as rabid, blood-sucking, creepy, devil birds. The truth is that bats play massive roles to our ecosystem; resulting in a highly beneficial economic role as well. Bats in Oklahoma eat thousands of pounds of insects each year. Some of these insects are considered pests; damaging crops, and causing extensive agricultural damage. In Oklahoma, the avoided-cost value of bats (reduced cost of pesticide application) is estimated to range from $6 million to $24 million per year.

Saving Oklahoma Bats

The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation and other state authorities are well aware of the White-Nose Syndrome threat and have put together an Oklahoma bat coordinating team. This team’s goal is to educate the public about WNS, monitor Oklahoma caves, help stop the spread of WNS, and eventually find a cure to the deadly bat-killing disease. There is currently no cure.

You can do your part to help stop the spread of WNS by engaging in a decontaminating protocol, outlined here whitenosesyndrome.org, while spelunking and exploring caves. Do not touch any bat you find inside a cave, whether dead or alive.

Report any signs of WNS, like sighting several dead bats or seeing bats with white fuzz, to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation as soon as possible: mhickman@zoo.odwc.state.ok.us or (405-990-4977).
