  1. Cockroaches: According to archeologists and entomologists, cockroaches surfaced approximately 320 million years ago. Although not much different in body structure, their size was immense. Scientists have measured the prehistoric creature and estimated it to be as big as a man’s shoe size 13. We are thankful they are now only 1 or 2 inches long. The cockroach is a social insect depending on its nestmates for their needs. Thrive Pest Control in Bixby knows this insect’s behavior and treats your home accordingly.
  2. Ants: A picnic’s best friend. Ants demeanor mirrors human behavior; it is amazing. For the most part, they enjoy being outside when it’s warm and come in when it starts to get cold. It is near the fall, and early winter ants become pests. This insect is very organized. Each member of the nest has a station, and they do their job well. Pest control experts have seen the results of DIY insect sprays. Each time an area is sprayed, there will be ants that become resistant. They, in turn, will start nests on their own. If this cycle goes on long enough, your spray won’t work at all. Call your local pest expert, Thrive Pest Control in Bixby.
  3. Wasps and Hornets: These flying pests do have a job to do. They control the pests in our gardens and keep plants healthy. What happens when they are not in your garden but your garage, doorway, or under eaves of your home? Younger children don’t always understand the consequences of swatting at a wasp.
