Seasonal Pest Control for YOUR HOME

Common Seasonal Pests in the Oklahoma Area

While some insects, such as cockroaches and bed bugs, are active year-round, others are seasonal and emerge only at specific times. The types of seasonal pests vary based on the climate of your location, emphasizing the need to plan for prevalent bugs in your area. Here’s a breakdown of the pests you can anticipate in the Oklahoma area through the seasons:

Fall Pests

The transition from summer to cooler temperatures prompts certain rodents and insects to seek refuge indoors, where they can easily access food. As a result, the fall season may bring about a more noticeable presence of these pests: 

  • Pavement Ants: Some ant species, like pavement ants, may become more active in the fall as they forage for food before winter.
  • Cockroaches: Cooler temperatures can drive cockroaches to seek shelter indoors, making them more noticeable during the fall.
  • Termites: While termites are active year-round, fall is a time when they may swarm and establish new colonies.
  • Fleas: Fall can be a peak season for fleas, especially if there are warmer days interspersed with cooler weather. 

Winter Pests

In the Oklahoma area, winter brings its own set of challenges when it comes to pests seeking refuge from the cold. With temperatures dropping, pests are known to invade homes in search of warmth and shelter. During the winter season, the chances of encountering these pests are higher: 

  • Rodents: Mice and rats are likely to seek warmth indoors during the winter, making homes and buildings more susceptible to infestations.
  • Spiders: While some spiders become less active in winter, others may still be present indoors, especially in secluded areas.
  • Cockroaches: In their quest for warmth, cockroaches may seek shelter indoors during the winter months.
  • Pantry Pests: Pantry pests like beetles and moths may become more noticeable in winter as they seek food sources in stored goods. 

Spring Pests

As temperatures rise and nature comes to life, various pests become more active, seeking food, water, and shelter. Some of the most frequently encountered pests during spring in the Oklahoma area are:

  • Mosquitoes: The warmer weather and increased precipitation create ideal conditions for mosquitoes to breed and multiply.
  • Stinging Insects: Bees and wasps become more prevalent in the spring as they establish nests and forage for food.
  • Ticks: With the resurgence of outdoor activities, ticks become more abundant, posing a potential threat to both humans and pets.
  • Flies: Warmer temperatures contribute to increased fly activity, both indoors and outdoors.

Summer Pests

Summertime is commonly associated with the sounds of buzzing bugs, and this connection is well-founded due to the favorable conditions created by warm weather and blossoming plants. These are some of the summer pests you’re likely to encounter in the Oklahoma area:

  • Mosquitoes: With stagnant water sources and warm weather, mosquitoes thrive during the summer months, posing a nuisance and potential health risk.
  • Ticks: Tall grass and wooded areas may harbor ticks, which become more active during the summer, posing a threat to both humans and pets.
  • Flies: The warmer temperatures encourage increased fly activity, both indoors and outdoors.
  • Ants: Various ant species, including fire ants and carpenter ants, are highly active in the summer, foraging for food and, in some cases, establishing new colonies.
  • Chigger Mites: These tiny mites can cause itchy bites and are commonly found in tall grass and wooded areas during the summer.
