Pest Control Broken Arrow

Pest Control Broken Arrow

With the heavy rains we have endured in the local area pests are in high numbers. Ants seem to be the #1 problem currently with Spiders a close #2. With such huge amount of rain these pests are seeking shelter from all the water flooding their nests and dispersing food. Many of these pests are working into residential homes and commercial businesses.

We have seen a steady number of calls for ants and spiders here lately. The best service is an outside perimeter treatment to reduce the number of ants in the area so they are less invasive. Spiders can also be controlled with a perimeter treatment. Our recommendation is to have the home or business treated regularly on a bi-monthly or quarterly service interval. The time frame really depends on the number of pests in you're general area or the level of infestation you have. EnviroTech Exterminating offers first time customers a $25.00 discount off the initial pest control service with no contract. Why would we offer our pest control services with no contract? Well, let's just say we are confident that you will be satisfied with our service that you will use EnviroTech for all pest control needs. Locking you into a contract is not needed. Besides who wants locked into a contract? Nobody...

Pigeon Control in Broken Arrow, Owasso, Jenks, Tulsa and Bixby, Oklahoma

Pigeon Control in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma
Pigeons although they look harmless are responsible for contaminating billions of dollars in food and raw material each and every year. These pest birds contaminate water, food, raw material and cause billions in damage to structures each and every year. Their feces accelerate the deterioration of buildings and increase the cost of maintenance. The droppings from pigeons may kill vegetation and it produces an very objectionable odor. Pigeons consume and contaminate large quantities of food destined for human consumption and or livestock. Pigeons also carry disease to people and livestock through their droppings.

Some of the disease pigeons carry are pigeon ornithosis, encephalitis, Newcastle disease, cryptococcosis, toxoplasmosis, salmonella poisoning, and several other diseases. The pigeons feces in the right conditions can harbor airborne spores. These spores can go airborne at any time from the wind, people stepping on them or moving objects where the spores may be.

Termite Swarmers are Active in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Termite Swarmers are Active in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

The number of calls for Termites has spiked as of this week. We are seeing a number of homes with termite swarmers also called Alates. These termites are reproductive termites and when you have a swarm it's an indicator that you have termites. If they are found outside It could also mean somebody near you has termites and they have now spread to your home or business.

  So what does a termite swarmer or Alate look like? Well, they have white/clear wings that are thin and these wings fall off relatively fast. The termite itself will be darker in color and have a body that is relatively the same width from head to the end of their body.

Termites are sometimes confused for being ants but they are nothing like their ant cousins. Ant's are more segmented and have a clear break or joint between the head, body and end. Even though we are talking termites here ants can be just as destructive as termites. Carpenter Ants do damage to structures just like termites do. We can assist with both of these pests.

With spring here and more humidity the swarmers are very active. These termite colonies are spreading to start new colonies. Treatment is absolutely necessary and if termite control is what you are needing please call EnviroTech at (918) 282-7621 for a Free Estimate. EnviroTech is locally owned and operated in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and offers a wide range of pest services from termite inspections, green pest control to nuisance wildlife removal for the Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby metro area.

Nuisance Wildlife Removal Services Broken Arrow, Bixby, Jenks, Oklahoma

Nuisance Wildlife Removal Services Broken Arrow, Bixby, Jenks, Oklahoma

This week I had the opportunity to help some folks that called with an animal stuck in there wall. Upon arrival I found an opening that had been chewed out by squirrels in the soffit of the home. The animal in the wall however was located along the inside wall of the garage about 15' from this opening. Since squirrels are such good climbers I had my doubts that it was a squirrel stuck in the wall unless it was a baby squirrel.

This home had no access to the attic space as the entry had been blocked off by the electronic garage door equipment so getting inside was not going to happen. We did however take a sheetrock knife and cut a small 3" x 3" hole in the garage side of the wall where the noise was coming from. Once the piece cut was removed a smaller sized sparrow poked it's head out the hole and just looked at us. The bird starred for about 10 seconds before it jumped up on the side of the opening and then flew away. I could tell by the smile on the bird that it was happy to be free :)

Our Rescued Baby Squirrel 
Needless to say a baby squirrel was found in the hot water tank closet in the garage. This squirrel was not injured, she had just fallen out of the attic space. I wanted to reunite the squirrel with it's mother but It could take literally days to reunite her with her mother due to the lack of access and the risk of her falling 5' if we just put her back in the 3 inch opening that was available in the closet. The baby squirrel also risked life from dehydration so we needed to act fast to assure this baby squirrel would have the highest possible chance for survival. I contacted a wildlife rehabilitation facility in Foil, Oklahoma called Wild Heart Ranch. The people at the ranch were very pleasant and understood the need for this animal to have a place to go and asked that I bring her in.

Once I arrived at the ranch I was given a tour of the facility and got to meet many of the wildlife animals they care for. Our baby squirrel was immediately cared for and fed. She was placed with three other squirrels that were about her age. I said goodbye to the baby squirrel knowing she was in good hands. The ranch that took her in takes donations in order to run and they help hundreds of animals that wouldn't have a chance without this help. Anybody that looks to make a donation should consider donating to this rehabilitation facility that helps these animals with such care. You can find their website at

Natural, Green Pest Control Services

Natural, Green Pest Control Services

(918) 282-7621            
Serving Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby, OK

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.

Green Pest Control Services.. Safer For What Matters Most

  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. I'd be happy to help... For more on our services visit us at Pest Control Services today. EnviroTech services the Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby metro area and is locally owned and operated.

Mole and Gopher Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks & Bixby, OK

Mole and Gopher Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks & Bixby, Oklahoma.

You know moles and gophers are destructive little pests. They thrive where food sources are plentiful. Ever notice as you're driving down the road all the mounds of dirt in clusters from these critters? Moles and gophers are active year round so you will see these mounds regardless of the time of year. They can be destructive to a yard since gophers eat roots and the moles leave tunnels in the soil.

A yard in Jenks with moles
So, why do you have moles or gophers? Well, moles chase after things like earth worms and grubs. They can sense, detect these creatures in soil so moles will follow them around depleting them and moving. This is why a neighborhood that has them will see yard after yard infested with these pests. Once they deplete the food in a yard they just move next door and then back and forth.

Gophers love roots so if you plant a garden, spend time working in the yard planting flowers, plants and so forth then gophers could be a problem. Gophers differ from moles in many ways. They are after different foods, moles are gophers look nothing alike and gophers tunnel deep into soil where moles prefer the area closer to the surface where their food is easily found and the soil easier to tunnel through. Gophers can dig deep in the soil and may have living quarters a few feet down.

So what do we do about these pests? First thing I always look at is the soil types that we are finding these animals in. If you live in the souther parts of Broken Arrow, Jenks or Bixby then it's likely you may have sandy loam soil. This soil is found in area's closer to the Arkansas River. These animals thrive in sandy loam soil types. If you start going north the soil changes to more of a mix and then to other soil types which can be harder to tunnel through for these animals. They don't prefer clay nearly as much as sandy loam. I would say this is likely the reason Jenks, Bixby and Broken Arrow tend to have more issues with moles then I see in the north eastern cities.

We can of course trap them, which helps but may not be a total solution since they migrate and move around. Once you do this you may just be inviting you're neighbor's moles over to take control of the areas you just cleared. They can be poisoned but once again you may end up just seeing more move in because of the competition being removed. They can be smoked out with products that kill them but once again it may not be a total solution. They can be driven out with products that make what they eat taste horrible but yet this may not be a total solution. The truth is that nothing is a total solution for these animals because they are pests that migrate. Most people will tend to have moles or gophers because of where they live. It's kind of like having ants every spring... It just happens.

EnviroTech can help by looking at your unique situation and determining what may work best for the area, place, soil type you may have. Sometimes the best thing is a combination of methods. Sometimes depending on what's around you only one method is needed. I would recommend scheduling an appointment to find out what may be the best way to help your mole/gopher problem.

No matter what you decide to do about these pests I hope this page at least helps you to understand these animals better.

Termite Inspection, Termite Treatment and Control in Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby, Oklahoma

Termite Inspection, Termite Treatment and Control Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby, Oklahoma.

By: EnviroTech Exterminating

With it now almost mid February it's time to start thinking about termites. Soon with temperatures rising and the humidity rising, termites will begin swarming. A termite swarm happens when a healthy colony of termites have grown to a large enough colony that the termites separate to form additional colonies. They usually don't make it to far as termites are not the best of flyers and they lose their wings relatively fast.

Termites found under hot water tank
Termites play a huge part of mother natures natural recycle process. These wood destroying pests eat up wood, rotting wood and any products made of wood to help in cleaning up our planet. These little pests are capable of eating the supports of a house, home, business or any structure if not treated.

When you buy a home most lenders require the home to be inspected for wood destroying organisms. This inspection is called a ODAFF1. The lender doesn't like to loan money on a home with active termites so they request this inspection. Lenders will happily loan the money on a home that is treated for termites but usually won't fund the purchase until proof of treatment has been provided. If termites are found and treatment is then provided the lender will require proof and at that time usually fund the purchase pending any other issues.

EnviroTech Exterminating offers wood destroying organism reports or inspections for clients in the process of purchasing a home. If termite activity is found a proposal for treatment can be provided at no additional cost. For those that already own their home EnviroTech does provide services to help protect the home from termite pests. Call (918) 282-7621 today to request an appointment. You can also visit Termite Control for more information about our termite inspection and treatment services.

Nuisance Wildlife Removal Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby, Oklahoma

Nuisance Wildlife Removal Services in Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby, Oklahoma

With winter soon turning to spring problem wildlife pests will begin having babies. This could be a problem if you have these wild animals living in your attic or crawl space. Some of the animals you need to be concerned and worried about are the grey squirrel, the raccoon, the opossum and of course skunks.

Squirrels chew wiring and ruin facia, soffit on the home. Raccoons urinate and leave their feces in large piles on the sheetrock between the ceiling joists. These piles are moist, carry possible disease and pathogens. The feces and urine is absorbed into the sheetrock and ruins it. If the raccoons are left in the attic space it will in a relatively quick manner turn into a family of raccoons and the amount of fecal matter and urine becomes more then the ceilings can hold and these animals will fall through the ceiling crashing into your bedroom, living room or whatever room they were nesting above.

Skunks are a problem due to an awful smell that comes from a gland in their anus. Once they spray the smell can be so strong that you cannot live or stay in the home. The smell will penetrate through walls, clothing, the beds and any other porous items in the home. Skunks dig around the structure to build nests. Sometimes they will enter crawl spaces or dig under the slab of a home. They need removed before they become a problem.

Opossums live in and around structures as well. They eat about anything they can find. These wildlife pests will go through the trash just like a dog or a raccoon will do. Opossums need removed from the property before they get stuck inside the walls or in the attic. They smell bad, they also can bite if handled.

Regardless of the pest you have living in your home, it needs removed. For more about wildlife pests visit us online at Nuisance Wildlife Pests

Pest Control Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Pest Control Broken Arrow, Oklahoma

Got an amazing call today from a couple in Broken Arrow that had a Opossum hung up on the fence. They thought it's leg was stuck between the boards on the fence but it turned out to be his personal parts. We saved this opossum from certain death. With winter in full swing pests such as these are looking for warm places to hold up for the winter. This animal was likely looking at his options when this horrible accident occurred. He's a very lucky Opossum that we got there when we did.

So, with this being said, springtime is only 7-9 weeks away. Once the weather starts to warm up any pests that have moved in such as squirrels, opossum, raccoon will begin having babies. I want to recommend that anybody reading this do an inspection of their home and make sure no animals have eaten the way into the attic space. Once these nuisance pests have established a home in you're home the smell attracts other wildlife.

Pests are soon to be a problem again. With only 8 or so weeks to springtime bugs will be in full force. The best time to have your treatment is just before the spring rains. Ant's, Spiders and other creepy crawly pests will be invading garages, homes and doing what they do. Termites will also be active with the first swarms coming soon.

EnviroTech Exterminating offers residential and commercial pest control of a multitude of pests. From nuisance wildlife to termites. We can take care of all your pest control needs. Serving Broken Arrow, Jenks and Bixby, Oklahoma. Visit our Broken Arrow Pest Control site at Pest Control Broken Arrow, OK today for more information on our services.  We have $100.00 off a Termite Treatment and $25.00 of Initial Pest Control Services currently advertised on our pest website.
