From one season to the next, the pests in Oklahoma are able to adapt to the fluctuating temperature changes and weather conditions. Many pests even thrive and become a greater annoyance during some seasons that you wouldn’t expect. Ultimately, for Oklahoma residents, this means that pests are a problem all year round. Fortunately, our seasonal approach to managing the pests in your household is the best way to tackle and prevent infestations. The experts at Emtec Pest Control are always one step ahead with innovative treatment methods, the right equipment for the job, and the experience needed to deal with seasonal pest control.
Summer: During the hot summer months, mosquitoes, flies and spiders seem to be most abundant. With grass, trees and shrubbery growing every day, overgrown landscaping provides the ideal conditions for insects. The scorching temperatures and dry spells in late summer also tend to drive pests indoors seeking shelter and water. Emtec pays special attention to entry points and landscaping during the summer months.
Fall: Once it starts to cool down outside, pests instinctively search for areas where they can spend the winter months ahead and begin their preparations. Rodents and other insects are especially active during this time when they seek shelter from the cold. During the autumn months, Emtec Pest Control focuses on integrating exclusionary methods that involve sealing entry points and creating barriers around the home to prevent pests from settling down for the next few months.
Winter: During frigid winter months, pests that have unwittingly entered your home already prefer to stay there in the warmth and safety of your home, not daring to venture outside in the cold. The risk of carpenter ants and termites taking up winter residence in your home is still quite high. Emtec Pest Control’s winter treatment plan generally consists of eliminating the pests that are already in your home using safe and effective methods.
Spring: The onset of springs sees many pests emerging from their eggs and nests, ready to invade homes. Termite activity generally sees an increase around this time of year as it provides the optimal weather for termite swarmers to find new areas to inhabit. Emtec Pest Control uses the Sentricon System to track termite populations and focusing treatment around the exterior of the home. The best part about a Sentricon treatment plan is that it works all year round.
