Broken Arrow Pest Control and Pests in General

When you think of the word pests, do you usually envision insects? These little critters are often the worthy recipients of the term, but pests can come in all shapes and sizes, from tiny termites to rascally raccoons, and even full grown telemarketers! Pests can be difficult to get rid of, but definitely not impossible. There are people solely dedicated to their eradication. You might call them vengeful, vermin vigilantes, but they could be your best friends! 

Pests can pose risks to the health of your family, cause physical damage to your home, destroy or spoil food, damage clothing or other fabrics, or just be a nuisance.
Most pests are specific to certain seasons, but of course, this varies, depending on where on the continent you live. 
Here is just a sampling.
Winter pests may include rodents that have found a warm place to nest for the winter in your home. They can cause serious damage and even require costly roof repairs. Besides chewing wires and shredding clothing and paper for nesting material, they leave a terrible mess and odour. In warmer climates, cockroaches find homes inviting.
Spring brings out the wasps and bees. Although we are all familiar with the beneficial role they play in pollination, they can administer a nasty sting, especially dangerous to those with allergic reactions to them. Lady bugs (such an innocent name!) can be pesky when found in the house.
Summer and fall bring out the fruit flies, which, in spite of scientific knowledge to the contrary, seem to be birthed by exposed fruit. Dirty, disease carrying flies, wood chewing termites, and any number of other insects round out the small pest varieties. Larger examples include garbage can loving racoons and skunks. If you have ever tried to trap and relocate these critters, you will appreciate those who dedicate their lives to controlling these specimens!
Fall brings out the huge mature spiders with their webs, visible only when the dew settles on them (quite beautiful for the photographer), or when unsuspecting you walks through one (quite funny for the videographer). The harvest in Canadian fields chases the mice indoors, which, upon discovery, become wonderful fodder for YouTube. More recently, lady bug lookalikes with many names (asian beetles, Japanese beetles, harlequin ladybirds) have infested homes in falls months as their population preps for winter.
Telemarketers cross all season boundaries; most people develop their own methods of disposing of them. If all else fails, and you can’t beat them, join them; it’s a decent living!

You don’t have to live with pesky invaders. Let the experts advise you or eliminate them for you.
