Our Pest Control Services in Oklahoma City & Metroplex
Pest control services include so much more than termites and roaches. Bed bugs are a constant problem in the Oklahoma City Metro area. Unfortunately, homeowners don’t meet us until a swarm of wasps, termites, cockroaches, mice, or spiders shows up in their homes. Gnats and Mosquitoes are certainly a spring and summer nuisance for everyone, but there are ways to rid them from your backyard BBQ or family events.
Furthermore, we also get numerous calls for roaches and mice infestations in the fall and winter. In recent years with so many DIY television shows, many have tried the “do your own pest control” path with minimal results.

Commercial Pest Control Services
Commercial buildings are susceptible to the same kind of infestations as a home. Any dwelling produces trash, and trash makes pests. Although most office buildings might not suffer as many pest problems as a restaurant or a deli, they still incur an invasion or two.
For many businesses, we have found ants, flies, and bees or wasps to be their most significant nuisance. Understandably, restaurants suffer the most from pests due to the many food products that attract them.
One of the biggest concerns is always a kitchen or break room. We also clean the drains as part of our commercial pest control service.
Doing your pest control as a business owner wastes your time and usually costs more.
Doing your own pest control as a business owner wastes your time and usually costs more.
Annual Inspections can help reduce costs through early detection.
No home or business is risk-free from a termite swarm or infestation. Termites devour more than just wood. Houses or buildings made of brick, log timber, stucco, and other materials are still capable of termite infestations. For more information, go to our Termite Inspection page.
It not only protects your home but adds value.
In the United States alone, termites cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to homes and businesses annually. The infestation probability in Oklahoma is rated as high by reports from the US Energy Department. Trust our professional team today. Learn more information on our termite treatment page.
Fleas & Ticks
Keep your home and your pets flea and tick-free.
A common problem in Oklahoma for homes with pets, pests are often carried into your yard initially from other animals. They can quickly become a problem as they grow in number and begin living in your grass and gardens. Baths do work great to kill fleas and ticks on your animals. Learn more on our Fleas & Ticks page.
General Pests & Other Home Invaders
Oklahoma Ants Top Invaders
Among the most common ants in Oklahoma are carpenter ants, fire ants, sugar ants, and pavement ants. All these insects can be annoying, but they can also create damage and, for fire ants, even a bit dangerous. Fire ants will sting anything they deem as a danger to them. The most considerable concern with ants is the large colonies they create and treating them too late.
Most spiders are harmless.
Most spiders are harmless in Oklahoma, but two, like the black widow and brown recluse, can create painful experiences. The spiders you see are often tiny compared to how many are in and around your home, and attics and corners in basements are great hiding spots for spiders to build their webs.
Moisture and Food Sources
Roaches need moisture to survive, and their search for water will draw them to sinks in kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms. A clean house doesn’t always mean you won’t have cockroaches; they eat cardboard, leather, soap, and other items. You can find these insects in almost any dark area with moisture in your home.
Flying Insects & Pests
Wasps – Hornets
Wasps are brightly colored; Hornets are Larger
Encounters with wasps, bees, and hornets can be life-threatening for susceptible people. Wasps and hornets seem more aggressive than their smaller cousins in bee hives. However, wasps and hornets happen to be predators of other insects. If a colony or nest is not in an area that presents a danger, it might be beneficial to leave them alone.
Mosquitoes & Gnats
Summertimes favorite pest
Oklahomans try home remedies and bug lights, but these pests still appear. With the increase of certain diseases like the Bird Flu or West Nile Virus, having a professional treat your home and lawn are worth the time and effort to prevent these insects from invading the family BBQ or family time in the backyard.
Flies are attracted to strong smells.
Flies live in and around gardens, water sources, and food sources. Known for eating trash and feces from animals is always on the minds of those who see one of these insects land on their food. A few females in your yard can lay 500 eggs each, turning your backyard into a fly metropolis. Early treatment can prevent or at least minimize their population.
Interior Pests & Rodents for Home and Businesses
Dust Mite Control
Dust allergy, or are there mites?
Dust mites are the common cause of allergies from house dust. There are spray cleaners that will kill dust mites, but in some cases, they can be hard to eliminate, especially since they are microscopic. Vacuuming does not prevent dust mites or kill them due to the depth at which the mites live, and they can also live in bedding and mattress.
Mice and Rats
Rodent Control and Removal
Oklahoma generally deals with field mice more than rats; however, both can be present and search for the same things: food, water, and shelter. Rodents survive in just about every part of the country, from urban towns and cities to rural farms, and these rodents continue to thrive. You must act now if you hear scratching noises in walls or attics.
Bed Bug Control
Finding and treating bed bugs.
Not all bites are from bed bugs, and often they turn out to be another insect or mosquito. However, low-level infestations can occur and are a challenge to discover early on when not feeding bed bugs live around the edges of the bed frame, mattress, and headboards. Finding and treating these insects is critical to success.
Fabric & Paper Pest Control
Beetles, Moths, & Silverfish
These insects damage clothes, paper, and stored food, and they feed on everything from wool, carpet, furniture, animal hair, and bedding covers. Moths are the most notable pests that families deal with. However, silverfish and carpet beetles are just as prevalent in many Oklahoma homes. Learn more on our General Pests page.
Stored Product Pest Control
Pantry pests and Laundry Room Insects
Products stored in pantries and laundry rooms can become a haven for several different beetles, moths, and some mites that infest whole grain or processed foods. One telltale sign is small beetles on countertops or caterpillars crawling up walls in these areas. Checking stored food often in boxes is recommended.
Wood Attacking Fungi
Keeping Trees healthy in your yard.
There are several wood decay fungi found in trees. Spores travel through the air but can only take root if conditions are optimal in the moisture levels of the wood. However, some fungi attack dry or dead wood as well. While many would think of trees, this includes any wood or lumber you might have lying around.
Only one scorpion in Oklahoma
The Striped bark scorpion is the only one found in Oklahoma. They are not considered dangerous scorpions, but a physician might still look at their sting. Active mainly during summer and fall hot days; they will move indoors if it gets too hot. Other species have been found in Oklahoma but are unfamiliar to the state.
Moth discovery and treatment
Moths are soft damaging insects often not seen until they have invaded the home or closet. When treating these clothes-eating insects, we eliminate the moths, their eggs, and larvae. Most common infestations are from infected items carried into the home, such as food or clothing.
Occasional Invading Insects
Centipedes, Earwigs, Millipedes, and Crickets.
Generally speaking, these insects are not dangerous and do not threaten your home or business. Some of these little creatures feed on other pests and may be beneficial in controlling other insects. However, most of the time, these are merely a tiny nuisance instead of a danger.
