Bed Bug’s on the rise in Tulsa
Bedbug problems are fairly common now in Tulsa. These pests are known to hitch hike from place to place meaning you can pick them up just about anywhere. That evening dinner at you’re favorite restaurant could be the same place somebody just visited that has bedbugs, thus leaving a bed bug egg or even live bedbug for you to sit on next. This same scenario could happen at the movies, the library, the laundry mat or even at somebody’s home that you know.
For the most part bedbugs go unnoticed at first. The pests trail carbon dioxide to once introduced into you’re household they will only take a short amount of time to find you sleeping in you’re bed or on the couch. Bedbugs are then easy to spread throughout the home as they leave the eggs in a number of places. The bed bug egg is sticky, tacky to the touch so they stick to you’re body or clothing making spreading them highly likely. This is why they are spreading so rapidly in the Broken Arrow, Tulsa, Jenks and Bixby area. Really no place is safe… Bedbugs do not care about social economics they only care about one thing, blood.
Bed Bug activity in the Tulsa area has increased dramatically over the last 3-5 years. Every day somebody new finds out they have bedbugs. Though they can be treated for they are difficult to eradicate. Some reasons they can be difficult is that they thrive in clutter, leave eggs in a number of hard to get to places and are excellent at hiding. Although somebody with a good plan can do treatment themselves the percentage of successful people going it alone is very low.

Natural, Green Pest Control Services

Today I want to take a moment to talk about some of the reasons why a customer chooses to use our natural, green pest control services.
Every day we as Americans are bombarded with toxins. We eat foods treated with pesticides and drink water treated with chemicals. With population growth comes higher food demands. As a country, a world with a growing population the demands for more food and clean water require more chemicals and pesticides. We need food that we grow to produce faster and more resistant to insects so it’s not ruined. All these human induced pressures means we must use more pesticides and usable potable water from places that we may not have been treating in the first place.
Sewage water is being treated in places to irrigate golf courses, and other land due to water shortage issues. Desalination plants are becoming more and more popular as a means of treating sea water. The truth is as more people populate the globe more methods of maintaining these populations are necessary thus the need for more chemical and pesticides to produce larger crops to feed the masses, water to keep a growing population alive.
With all the toxins we are subjected to daily it’s not a bad idea to consider using green pesticides rather than synthetic pesticides in your home. I’m not going to tell you one is better than the other as they both do their job. With a proper Integrated Pest Management “IPM” program you may find that you’re business, home doesn’t need the highly toxic pesticides and can use something more natural or greener.
Some circumstances where you may want to use a green pesticide over a synthetic:
1) You have customers in and out that may smell the synthetic pesticides. I’ve been to restaurants with my family, walked in the door and almost been knocked down by the smell of synthetic pesticides. I knew from the smell of the pesticide that they just had a roach treatment recently. The smells were strong and we decided to go eat somewhere else.
2) You are concerned that your employees/family may have allergies to synthetic pesticides. Many people have allergies or even asthma.
3) You have young children in you’re household. Babies that are at crawling stage constantly put their fingers in their mouths. Less Toxic pesticides are better then more Toxic pesticides in this situation.
4) You don’t have a serious pest problem and want the least amount of toxins but still want to reduce pest populations and keep them under control. There truly may be no need for a synthetic pesticide in your unique situation.
One thing I want to make sure people understand is Green may not necessarily mean Organic. An Organic pesticide may be made of things like mint oils, garlic, neem oil and other essential oils. A Green pesticide may be made of a pyrethrin. The product of a plant that most pesticides are made from. It attacks the nerve center of insects. Most synthetic pesticides are derived from taking this pyrethrin and synthesizing it to make a pyrethroid.
Hopefully this blog posting gives you at least some insight on why you may be better off using green pest control services rather then using a synthetic. If you are a residential property owner or business owner/manager that is interested in a Green IPM Service please feel free to call us at (918) 282-7621 to schedule an appointment.

Potential Health and Financial Risks of Untreated Pest Problems
Natural Green Pest Control
This week I wanted to take a moment to discuss pest control options for those considering hiring a Exterminator. With more and more emphasis on foods without hormones and genetic alteration the Pest Control Industry has also seen a desire by the public for more Natural Pest Control Services. A Pest Control Plan that offers Safe and Effective control for insect pests without the harmful buildup of Synthetic pesticides inside your home or business is ideal. The problem’s associated with using natural or Organic Pest Control have been shorter residual times and strong odors from many of the products available. The tradeoff, Do it more often and maintain a more natural interior environment that is safer for your children, babies, the old or health compromised.
Synthetic Pesticides typically can offer longer residuals. The tradeoff for the longer residual might be worth it if your desire is to have as pest free of a home as possible. This is all subjective and even though you can get excellent results with Natural Pest Control when done correctly and maintained regularly the cost of going Natural may be higher than the cost of using a Synthetic Pesticide.
New products are being introduced that are both Natural and have longer lasting residuals. More are likely to come in the future as the research and development of these Organic or Natural Pesticides gets better. With more and more customers wanting Natural Pest Control rather than Synthetic Pest Control in their homes, the trend will continue and products will only get better and better.

This type of pest management uses natural plant oils, or inorganic materials such as boric acid. Plaint oils such as rosemary, clove oil and winter greens can act as insecticides. According to Wikipedia green pest management is a, “biological control [that] include use of biological pest control, the use of natural mechanisms in primarily agricultural or home lawn and garden pest control. Examples include bacteria, bacillus thuringiensis, or nematodes for example, for control of grubs, such as Oriental Beetle grubs or and in the case of bacillus thuringiensis, for control of mosquitoes.”
If you aren’t the do it yourself type, don’t fret. There are many pest control companies that offer green options. Since more and more people are becoming environmentally conscious all industries are taking note. Ask the pest control company you are thinking of hiring what options (if any) they do offer. You might be surprised on what they do have in terms of eco-friendly options.
The best way to get rid of certain pests such as beetles is to pick them off any plants they may be in your garden. This may seem trivial, but it is a great eco-friendly option. Most of the time this does the trick and you don’t need to get chemicals involved.
Most know that outside lights attract bugs. Keeping outside lights off will cut the chances of bugs swarming around your lights, and getting in your home. Another benefit is it will cut down on your electric bill—a win, win.
Some plants actually deter bugs. Many herbs such as chives, rosemary, oregano and sage are great for your garden. Not only will you have fresh herbs to cook with, you will be making the rest of your garden safe from bugs. About.com lists the following to plants to get rid of these common pests:
