Everyday we hear from people calling about bed bug issues. Most of the time they want to know about heat treating for bed bugs which we are happy to explain. I wanted to take a moment to write a post about this process and why it’s so much more effective then other types of treatment for bed bugs.
Bed bugs have been studied excessively. Major universities and government agencies such as the CDC have done numerous studies on these pests. These studies include treatment methods and processes which is what we are going to discuss here.
Bed bugs can be treated in a number of way’s. I’m going to list these types of treatments and then discuss the pro’s and the con’s to each.
- Heat Treatment Services
- Chemical Treatment Services
- Freezing Treatment Services
- Steam Treatment Services
Obviously most people hear about chemical and heat treatment services as these are the most popular. Both work but one works exceptionally well and quick and the other requires usually numerous treatments. Heat if done properly and directions followed by the customers is highly effective. Success rates are 97% for our customers with only 3% needing further services. These 3% can usually be associated with improper preparation and not following directions. Chemical services require multiple treatments and a rotation of products used to reduce resistance to pesticides.

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.

With all the rain we had in February swarming season is upon us. Reproductive Termites Swarm from homes infested with termites and from colonies that may be present in the area. Termite swarmers are not very good flyers as they rely more on the wind to carry them to new infestation sites. They then burrow into the ground as a mating pair and start a new colony of their own. This means a home or structure could have multiple termite colonies infesting the structure. We help solve this problem.
Currently we are offering a discount ranging from $50-$100 off a termite treatment. Call us for details and a FREE Estimate! Call (918) 282-7621 Today!

Coweta Pest Control Services with EnviroTech Exterminating Owner, Billy Howard
Have you ever needed pest control services but find your options limited because you live in Coweta, Oklahoma? It seems like most residents would always be forced to use the big names in the pest control industry from Tulsa. This can be a good thing or it can be a bad thing. It all depends on the work ethic of the technician sent out. Well, it doesn’t have to be like that. I know we all want professional service, the job done with quality products and done right! These are the simple things that should come with any service from any company.
Lets talk about the other things that really matter. What about experience and knowing the products, the insects and proper identification? Insect life cycles, biology and reproductivity habits? How about knowing structures, being competent in how, why, where to treat? And most importantly, what about knowing your service provider can be trusted in your home? These are the areas that separate the average pest control technician from the professional. This is where EnviroTech exceeds expectations. You can rest assured with our services.
Anybody can claim they provide the best service, anybody can spray a pesticide with a B&G can.

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.

Termite Inspection and Treatment Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Coweta and Tulsa. Commercial and Residential Inspections and Treatment Services.
In most real estate transactions inspections may be required such as a wood infestation report or ODAFF1. These are usually lender requirements for anybody hoping to buy a home with the help of a mortgage. In some cases a report called the NPMA-33 which is used in VA loans and some other types of loans may be needed. Other types of inspections may be Moisture Damage Reports. These can be optional and are usually used when somebody buying sees damages they want an official report on to request repairs. The reality is having a inspection for termites, for wood rot could save you money in the long run.
All inspections are visual inspections. Most homeowners will NOT allow an inspector to deface the home, remove sheetrock and so forth. What this means is the inspection is only as good as the visible evidence suggests. Termites are only usually found in a home when visible evidence is seen. Types of visible evidence we look for are tunneling in sheetrock, holes in trim, sheetrock, black or brown spotting on trim or sheetrock, tubes on walls, on trim, on concrete leading to trim. Crawl spaces are inspected as well. Once termite activity is found a termite treatment will be called for.
What does a termite treatment look like? Well, it can require drilling of slabs, trenching of soil around the structure, maybe even small holes in walls for foaming of areas infested with termites. A termite treatment professional can look at the property and suggest the necessary work required to do proper treatment. Choosing a professional that takes pride in the work they do will make for a cleaner looking treatment when all is done.
What is a full treatment? A full termite treatment is when the entire home is treated. This means the perimeter is treated.
There are also treatments considered to be partial treatments or whats known as a spot treatment. This is a treatment of a smaller portion of the structure. Spot treatments are usually not accepted as a means of treatment for a real estate purchase. They are typically done to a home already lived in that has an issue arise where the owner many not have funds available to treat the entire dwelling or structure.
Another very important thing to consider is the product being used for treatment. Lets just face it, you can put down a cheap termiticide to save some money but that usually will cost you in the long run. Why?, well a low cost product may only last 4 years, 5 years where a better quality, more expensive product could last double this amount of time or longer.
EnviroTech offers termite treatment and termite inspection services. It’s highly suggested for anybody buying a home in Broken Arrow, Jenks, Bixby, Coweta, Tulsa and the metro area to have a yearly inspection done. If you are buying a home and need it inspected our services can be scheduled by calling (918) 282-7621.
