Why a Heat Treatment for bed bugs
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.

Broken Arrow Pest Control Services (918)-282-7621
Broken Arrow Pest Control Services
Every day in Broken Arrow somebody is finding out they have bed bugs, termites or perhaps some other type of pest issue. It’s my goal to help solve pest problems and provide the absolute best services money can buy. I believe being a pest control provider means we are not just here to manage pest problems but to also offer advice and tips. To help people in the community reduce pest control problems in the first place, I’d like to take a moment to list a few items that can help. Almost any homeowner can check and fix these items needed to minimize rodents, pests and insects in the home. If you prefer you can call us for all your Broken Arrow Pest Control Services needs.
1. Check the seal of the garage door. In most cases the garage will have a rubber piece that runs across the bottom and seals the door to the concrete. I find these ripped, torn, too short or missing on many new customers homes. If these are in poor condition pests like rodents, spiders, crickets, and snakes can easily make way into the garage and get access to the home.
2. Check all caulking around windows. Windows that are not sealed and properly caulked give ants and other crawling, flying insects easy entry into the home. If caulking is deteriorated, cut it out and re-caulk.
3. Check sill plates under door entry points. These should be caulked on both sides to reduce additional places pests can get in. They should sill up and provide a tight fit for the door.
4. Keep trees and bushes away from the perimeter of home. Bushes and trees that touch the home provide everything in most cases that pests need. It’s always a good idea to keep these trimmed and away from the home.
5. Keep grass trimmed and do not over water during spring and summer. Watering excessively will attract more bugs. It also reduces a pesticides ability to deal with pests by reducing its residual time.
5. Check eves and attic vents. I find these ripped, torn, sometimes even off. This allows birds, raccoons, bats, opossum and other varmint to easily get into the home and nest.
6. Keep pets water and food bowls away from the home as far as possible, Ants and other pests are attracted to the food and water. If these are left near the door, a slide door or any other entry point the pests will likely find the entry.
7. Have regular pest control services done on the property. In most cases quarterly service is perfect. If the home has a real insect pest problem then bi-monthly or even monthly services may be needed. This is especially true when dealing with cockroaches.
I sure hope these tips help minimize the pest issues you have this year. If you are in need of Broken Arrow pest control services, please consider EnviroTech Exterminating.

Ant Treatment Broken Arrow, Bixby, Coweta, Jenks
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.

With spring drawing near ants will begin foraging doing double duty. With all the rain we receive in springtime ants can be difficult to control so we use a combination of effective tools to help combat this problem. Too much water can reduce the effectiveness of a pesticide so using a combination of soft baits and granular baits with our perimeter treatment helps infect as many ants as possible to carry back our products to the colony. Over the years we have done hundreds of ant treatments and have found our method of service to be very effective.
What makes our ant treatment or service different from other pest control companies services? We use the best products money can buy making our service more likely to be successful. The care given to a thorough and proper treatment is second to none. The job is done right every time.
How often shall a homes perimeter be treated? With longer lasting, higher quality products we see typical residual times of about 90 day’s. This means you only need service on a quarterly basis. Some things that can change this time period are excessive watering or times of excessive rain.
What does the treatment cost? Each home is different due to size, watering issues. The good news is that after you’re initial service you will be on a set pricing that lasts as long as you keep the service. No Contracts, just excellent service. As long as the treatments are done on the advised time the price doesn’t change. This makes our service a much better choice than using a company that requires you sign a commitment before you even know how good their service or program is.
If you are in need of pest control services don’t hesitate to contact us today at (918)282-7621. We want to earn you’re business and promise to do the job correct each and every time.

With Spring near pest activity will be on the rise. I wanted to take a moment to mention a couple things that can help reduce pest problems for any home or business. With spring we usually get plenty of rain so watering less will help reduce pest problems.
- If you have weep holes on the structure look to see if you can put a breathable material such as mesh in the weep holes. this will allow the home to breath but help reduce pests that can crawl into the holes.
- keep foliage trimmed away from the home.
- Trees should not touch any part of the home
- Seal off entry points. A garage door with worn or no seal allows pests easy entry. Mice can enter, spiders, crickets and other pests take advantage of easy access due to worn or insignificant sealing on doors, door jams, garage entries and sliding doors.
- Keep bird feeders away from home. The seeds attract rodents and other pests
These are just a few of the many things a homeowner or business can do to help minimize the pest pressure they receive. Add an EnviroTech Pest Control Service Plan to this and pests are surely to be kept at bay.
