We know that you home is one of the biggest investments you will make in a life time. For most people they spend more time in and around their home than any other place. Our goal is to ensure that you are able to ENJOY your home, instead of spending time bothered by bugs or treating them yourself. We want to ensure that you do not just “live” in your house, we want you to be able to THRIVE in your HOME!
Pest problems almost always start outside the home, you may have noticed a spider web in the eaves, or seen ants trailing along the sidewalks. If you see insects inside we expect they are surrounding the home as well. We have designed our service based on years of experience, with this concept in mind, Eliminate what is inside, and protect the outside.
Initial pest service
The initial service is one of the most important parts in a successful pest control program. The goal of this service is to ensure that any pests are eliminated from the inside of the home, an effective “clean out” of what could be bothering you as well as getting rid of nests and webs around the home. Thrive pest control will inspect common harborage areas and treat the interior to provide that protection. Once the inside has been addressed we will remove webs and nest outside as well as apply products to create a barrier preventing reinfesestation. Regular treatments destroy any eggs that manage to outlast that initial service. Once the inside has been addressed keeping these pests out is much easier. Moving forward we return within 30 days to start your regular program.
It seems that no matter how good we are about keeping the doors closed occasionally spiders, ants, or even rodents find their way inside. Pests around Tulsa OK, are persistent and will find the small cracks in the brick, a poor seal on the garage door, as well as plumbing and electrical penetrations to find their way inside. We find that bugs make themselves known in the areas of the house with the most plumbing like the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms. Thrive pest control will inspect any areas of activity to determine where the bugs are coming from. We will treat these areas as needed, as well as the baseboards, and under the sinks to make sure that you and your loved ones are the only ones living in your home.
The outside of your home is where must bugs live and grow. Often there will be an Ant colony with its main entrance 10, 50, or even 100 Feet from your house. Underground there is sprawling passages bringing them closer to your house as they forage and look for food. For this reason it is important to keep the perimeter, and yard pest free to keep them from popping up on the inside.
Thrive pest control will start this service by using a brush to thoroughly sweep the eaves and doorways to remove all the cobwebs, wasp nests, and egg sacs that may be attached to the house. We use a pole that can reach 30 feet to ensure that we are able to clean even the highest points and keep your home looking its best.
Once we have removed the webs and nests we use a power sprayer to apply product to the eaves and roof line, preventing insects from rebuilding a few days later. Next we use the power sprayer to treat around the door frames, window frames, and corners that may harbor wasps, or provide the perfect spot for spiders to build. This treatment is carried down to the foundation and 6-10 feet out into the yard. This helps knock out any ants before they make their way inside, as well as prevent risk of other bugs getting onto the house.
In the Tulsa OK area many of the homes are made of brick. When homes are built “weep holes” are left in the brick to let the structure breath, but unfortunately it can also provide and entry point for insects. Our treatment will cover all the weep holes, as well as the flower beds, bushes, and other landscaping that bugs like to nest in. Since rain is so common we apply a granular barrier throughout the lawn to not only extend the barrier around your home to 30 feet or more, but to hold up in the rain. These granules are durable and designed to break down over time, so that when the rain does come, your house is ALWAYS protected.
If ant mounds, or wasp nests are built further from the home, or even a shed or shop is on your property, no need to worry. We will take care of these areas at no extra charge! At Thrive pest control we want to make sure your entire property is protected and available to give you a more worry free life.
