Rove Pest Control – Catoosa, OK
Mild Winters Mean More Bugs For Homeowners
Residents of Catoosa, Oklahoma are no strangers to bugs. This area plays host to many unique and interesting insects, spiders, and more. However, when not under a microscope, these bugs become less interesting and more annoying. In some cases, infestations can spread diseases, cause property damage, and even start to ruin the beauty of a home.
Many residents may have noticed the destructive role that the native walking stick insect has played in their great outdoors. These walking stick bugs have defoliated black oaks and and basswoods throughout the state. However, damage like this is not just restricted to the outdoors. Thanks to mild winters in Oklahoma, bug populations in Catoosa are at an all time high, and homeowners are paying the price both inside and outside their homes.
People have reported problems with termite and carpenter ants. To avoid letting these bugs into their homes, local residents should ensure that the grass next to their homes is short and tidy. Ideally, they should not allow tall weeds to build-up near their home’s exterior, and they should make sure that any cracks or crevices around windows or doors are sealed as much as possible. However, these bugs occasionally can get through even the best barriers. Once inside, these invasive bugs eat the wood in homes, and if left untreated, they can cause damage that is virtually impossible to reverse. Luckily, they can easily be treated with the help of a professional like Rove Pest Control.
In their yards, residents may have noticed an increase in mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, wasps and bees.

However, infestations can occur in even the tidiest yards, and luckily, they are locally based companies like Rove Pest Control that offer real results for these pests.
