Lately I’ve been getting calls from new customers looking for treatment options or cockroach services in Broken Arrow. What I’ve heard through numerous conversations during these calls is the pest control company they have been using doesn’t do this or do that. Of course all pest control companies do things there own way but all this got me thinking why?
I received a call on Tuesday from a lady in Broken Arrow who had another company servicing her home for German cockroaches. She wasn’t happy with the services they were providing and stated they treated her home at least 5 times now and she really hasn’t seen any progress. I decided to take this opportunity and asked her a few questions.
- Did the company have her clear out the cabinets in the kitchen?
- Did they bait the cabinets every service?
- Are they rotating products, pesticides, using IGR’s ” Insect Growth Regulators” ?
- How often was the follow-up services being performed?
- How tidy is home kept?
I was a little shocked with her answer’s. First, they never had her clear out the cabinets so a flush service could be performed. Second, they baited the cabinets only the first time they were out and never again. Third, she didn’t know about pesticide rotation to keep the cockroaches from gaining any pesticide resistance. I was also shocked that they did not discuss the need for keeping food, pop and other things cockroaches love cleaned up. She never answered regarding the service schedule and stated they just call the day of service without her knowing and then show up. Basically she doesn’t have them giving her a set treatment schedule.
The moral of the story: The service you pay for is only as good as the pest control person performing the treatment.
Sure part of the solution in dealing with cockroaches is making sure they don’t have the needed food, water they forage looking for. keeping the home or business tidy, clean and free of trash, food, soda cans and bottles sure does help but these are all things anybody dealing with these pests should be doing. Quite frankly, the pest control operator should be going over all these things with the customer so everybody has a good idea of how they can help reduce the cockroach problem.
So why choose EnviroTech? First, we absolutely do a flush service on any German Cockroach Treatment. It is required and will help move the process along and save you money in time. Second, we bait every time. Not just the first or the second service but every time. Third, we go over our services and expectations in detail. This is something most pest control companies do not do. It’s best we explain everything and discuss expectations, requirements for both our services and the customers because our customers deserve to know our process. It’s keeping our customers best interest, family, home safe from these pests.

Rodent Pest Control Services by EnviroTech Exterminating
I wanted to take the time today to inform Coweta and Broken Arrow residents and businesses about our fall/winter rodent pest control promotion. Even though many pests are less active during the later fall and winter months, pests are still looking for warm homes to nest in. Our biggest pest problem for these months are with animals, particularly rodents. EnviroTech offer’s a program designed to help stop these invading rodents and help control them. Our rodent services are designed to wipe out rodent mice so you don’t experience the common problem’s associated with these pests. EnviroTech also offer’s programs designed for rats as well. Combining the two can give you the ultimate in rodent control protection.
From time to time we get the calls from the general public telling us that rats have eaten away at their vehicles wiring or invaded the home, business. I can tell you that one thing most people don’t think about is their RV’s. These get parked, left alone and are typically an after thought during winter months. Rodents can take advantage of this and invade leaving a huge mess in the camper. We highly recommend rodent control services for these vehicles. Another thing to consider is rodents are vectors of disease and have been the cause of millions of human deaths over the centuries. These little creatures look all cute but they transport fleas, viruses, bacteria and parasites known to cause harm to humans.

Providing professional ant pest control and solutions. Call (918)282-7621 for a pest control, ant treatment service.
It is just about time for everybody to begin preparing for ant season. Spring brings in life with warmer weather, rain, everything greening up. This time of the year also brings the ants out. They forage around looking for food, water, building new colonies. Ants can get out of hand and become a true nuisance.
When you really think about ants they are truly amazing. Ants work in harmony and defend their colonies against rival ant colonies, spiders, wasps, and other insect life. They are like small armored warriors with a good for the colony goal in mind. Defend, feed, build the colony. Ants work for the better good of their colony. The feed, nurture, clean, groom, build, hunt like a single organism even though it can be a colony of thousands. Ants use pheromones to help guide workers, solder’s from point A to point B. They send out special ants that seek the food, water the colony needs just like a tracker seeking game. Once these ants find what they are looking for pheromone trails are made that allow other ants to follow. It’s absolutely amazing. Not so amazing when the pheromone trail leads into your home or pantry.
So what can be done to help control these pest ants trailing into the pantry? Well, good ant work is a slow process. I’ll give you two ways you can go with ant treatment.
- Fast Band Aid Fix – Using a pesticide designed to kill ants as fast as possible that come into the residual. This won’t kill off a colony but may provide some temporary relief. The products don’t usually transfer from ant to ant therefore only eliminating a small portion of the colony.
- Using products designed to take advantage of the ants social behavior. Ants carry the products back to the colony in the form of baits and insecticides designed to transfer from one ant to another and on and on. This method takes longer to see results but is longer lasting and provides much better control.
In extremely ant infested situations, a combination of the two methods may work best to help knock down the invaders while allowing some of the foraging ants to return to the colony carrying baits and products that transfer.
It is highly recommended that if a watering system “Spinkler” is used, turning the system off for a 3-4 day period will help reduce the time period needed to control an ant problem. Water is the enemy when you are having ant issues.
Some ants such as carpenter ants require a more intrusive treatment. These ants live in structures usually inside walls and around window sills. They are pests that destroy wood. A more invasive treatment is needed for these ants. We can help with carpenter ants or any other type of ant issue. Sugar ants, odorous house ants are the most common house ant we see in the home but other ants are still fairly common. For a ant program that works contact EnviroTech Exterminating at (918) 282-7621 or visit us online at Ant Control Services to see more about what we can do to help.

Guaranteed Heat Treatment Services for Bed Bugs. Service available in Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Coweta, Muskogee and Tulsa metro areas.
Are we out of our minds putting a guarantee on our heat treatment services when so many other companies don’t? Maybe, just maybe we are more confident in the quality of our work. We strive to do the job correct the first time, every time.
Other companies want to charge the customer each and every time they come back for service. What if you find a bed bug two weeks after an expensive bed bug heat treatment with company X. Will company X want to charge you all over again for another service? The truth is, many of these bed bug service providers are not confident in the quality of the treatment they are providing. I have seen company after company pop up over the last 2 years. I hear it every day on the phone while talking to potential customers that used another company. It’s alway’s the same story, the first treatment is X dollars and the second is X dollars and on and on. Why would you spend the amount of money a heat treatment costs only to likely need them back? Are they going to do a good, thorough job the first time? If you do proper prep work and they do a good thorough job success should be the norm. At least this is true with a mild to average infestation. Sure, some infestations are beyond this and will require multiple treatment. This however can easily be established during the consultation. These extreme cases however are not typical. Even though we see extremely infested homes from time to time the typical home with bed bugs doesn’t wait long enough for the infestation to get to this level. Remember, nobody wants bed bugs. Most people opt to have a treatment done as soon as they realize they have a bed bug problem.
Using EnviroTech Exterminating for your Bed Bug Heat Treatment will give peace of mind in knowing the jobs done right. We understand some folks may bring a bed bug back into the home by accident, in some cases this will occur. EnviroTech will do our best to help advise the client on how, what to do to reduce these possibilities. We also spend more time in the home with longer heat cycles, soak times. We provide chemical residuals so in the event of you bringing in another bed bug, the pests hopefully doesn’t last long. We make sure the home is properly prepared for treatment and will not take a clients money if we feel the home is not ready. It’s just doing the proper thing each and every time because we care and we want you to be bed bug free. Your success is our success and quite frankly, we would love to earn all your pest control needs for years to come.
Our bed bug heat treatment services are available to residential and commercial property owners in the metro Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Coweta, Muskogee area.
