Insects in Oklahoma have a knack for entering your home uninvited. Your house shelters them from the sun and other environmental conditions, which is why you should consider hiring a perimeter pest control company to keep them out. Professional pest control treatments will keep bugs out of your personal space, so you don’t have to worry about them sneaking up on you when you least expect it! The question is, how do you know what professional pest control company to choose? There are a few things to consider when deciding between your local pest companies.

For one, you want a company that not only sprays around your house but will treat your lawn as well. Additionally, you'll want to "set and forget" your pest control treatments, so choose a team that will return to your home throughout the year on a set schedule, always keeping your house protected! Lastly, choose a company that offers free resprays in between treatments.


A perimeter pest control company should spray around your home and your lawn.

Most companies that offer pest control will only spray around your home. Oftentimes, that isn’t good enough to keep the bugs away. Ideally, you want a company that not only sprays the perimeter of your house but your lawn, too. While it is important to spray around the foundation of your home to stop bugs from breaching your personal space, your lawn also houses many types of insects, so it should be treated as well for maximum coverage. If you or your family enjoys being out in the yard, then it’s easy for those bugs to sneak into your home. So, by getting your lawn treated for insects, you can safely enjoy the outdoors without worrying about bringing any pests inside.

Spiders, moths, and fleas are some of the common bugs that perimeter pest control helps keep out of your home!


A perimeter pest control company should treat your property throughout the year.

You want to look for a perimeter pest control company that provides multiple treatments throughout the year. Bugs are resilient creatures, and they will keep trying to invade your home. Not to mention, different seasons see the rise of different types of insects popping up. So, even if you get your property treated once, the potency of the treatment will eventually wear off, which leaves your home unprotected. Therefore, it's best to hire a company that offers a perimeter pest control program where they come back multiple times to re-apply the treatments.

A good pest control company will also offer free resprays between their scheduled treatments. Sometimes bugs will find a way into your home between the treatments, leaving you to deal with the insects yourself or pay for another treatment. When a company offers to respray your property at no extra cost, it tells you two important things. First, it means that the company is confident in their service, meaning that you can rest easy knowing that their product works. It also means that the company is willing to put you first. They want to make sure that your home remains protected from any invasive pests, and they won’t be satisfied until you are.
