Oklahoma's Worst Spring Pests
As the weather warms up in Oklahoma, it's time to start thinking about the pests that come with springtime. From ants to mosquitoes, there are a variety of pests that can wreak havoc on your home and yard. Here are some of Oklahoma's most common spring pests and how to deal with them.
Carpenter ants are one of the most common spring pests in Oklahoma. They are large, black ants that nest in wood, such as decks and trees. To prevent carpenter ants from entering your home, seal any cracks or crevices around windows and doors. You can also use baits and chemical treatments to eliminate any existing colonies.
Mosquitoes are another common spring pest in Oklahoma. They are most active during the warmer months and can carry a variety of diseases, such as the West Nile virus and Zika. To reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard, eliminate any standing water and trim grass and weeds. You can also use insect repellents to keep mosquitoes away.
Flies are one of the most annoying spring pests in Oklahoma. They are attracted to food and moisture, so keeping your home clean and dry is essential. You can also use fly traps or chemical treatments to reduce their numbers. Additionally, you can use screens on windows and doors to keep flies out.
