Don't Leave It Up To Chance
Have you ever heard the saying, "Don't leave it up to chance, when it comes to all those ants?" No? Well, that's probably because we just made it up. The fact is most people don't pay too much attention to ants when they come to visit. If they are outside, they aren't much of an issue. If they are inside--well--a few little ants can't do any harm, right? Not necessarily. Let's take a look at the common ants in our area and see if there is really any harm in keeping them around.
All year long, Tulsa pests can harm your health and your property. They can bite or sting you and your family. They can transmit diseases. They can spread harmful bacteria and parasitic worms. They can get into your food, eat your clothing, nibble on your wallpaper and make a meal out of the wood in your home. Today, we're going to take a look at a few common Tulsa pest threats and how the team at Montgomery Exterminating protects Tulsa residents from them all year long.
Wasps and Hornets
During the spring, summer and fall, stinging insects can be a problem. They create nests in the ground and they attach nests to structures. At any time, your outdoor fun can turn into an outdoor run! We help you prevent unwanted encounters with stinging insects by detecting nests early and addressing them.
We have many spiders that can creep into your Tulsa home. They often show up when you least expect them and jump you out of your skin, like when you are grabbing a cooler out of the exterior shed and you find a wolf spider in the bottom of it. Or when you are walking through your backyard and you walk through the web of an orb weaver spider. We reduce spiders around your home and reduce the chance of spiders getting into your home by getting rid of cobwebs during service visits. This lets spiders know they're not welcome on your property. We also apply treatments to your perimeter to reduce the food sources spiders feed on.
There are several ant species that can get into your home. Crazy ants, Argentine ants, acrobat ants, pavement ants and other occasional ant invaders that sometimes spread bacteria are addressed with routine barrier treatments and targeted treatments when trouble is detected by your service professional, such as wood damage caused by carpenter ants or crazy ants attacking a power box.
These insects cost U.S. property owners billions of dollars every year. No home should be without termite protection. We trust the Sentricon® System with Always Active to keep these destructive insects from damaging Tulsa homes. Sentricon® with Always Active works 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to immediately address the threat of attacking termite colonies even as they attack. The Sentricon® bait is scientifically proven to be more interesting to termites than wood. When they take the bait, and they will, they share the active ingredient with the other termites in their colony. When the colony dies, the threat of damage dies with it.
Bark scorpions are great climbers and often find their way into Tulsa homes. This can lead to an unwanted encounter and an unwanted and painful sting. Our focus is on the exterior of your home so that bark scorpions and other pests don't get in. But, if they do find a way in, we provide interior treatments to get rid of them.
There are few pests that are as dangerous to your health and property as mice. These little rodents nibble on wires and this can cause a house fire. They bring ticks, fleas and other harmful parasites in when they invade your home. They damage wood, insulation, sheetrock and other building materials as they chew holes and gather materials for their nests. They chew their way into storage boxes and stored furniture. They leave their urine and their feces everywhere, including where they sleep. They contaminate food, shelves, food-prep surface, dishes and more. When mice get in, our service team knows how to trap them and get them out.
Roaches are the sanitation engineers of the animal kingdom. They can be found in sewers, dumpsters, compost heaps and on dead animals. They feed on feces and rotting organic matter. This attraction to dirty things makes them a serious threat for the spread of bacteria, pathogens and parasitic worms. The exterior treatments that we apply help to make sure no cockroaches get into your home alive.
When overwintering pests like boxelder bugs try to hide in your Tulsa home when it gets chilly outside, your barrier treatment repels them. This treatment also works to reduce mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.
