Termites

Eradicate Termites and Prevent Damage

Termites invade homes, feast on wood, and can cause substantial damage, resulting in the need for expensive repairs. In order to avoid damage, immediate attention is required. American Services utilizes the Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System to eliminate termites for homeowners in the Broken Arrow, OK and Tulsa, OK areas. Not every company is qualified to use this system, but our exterminators have extensive training in this innovative insect control technology.

The Sentricon Termite Colony Elimination System

 This system is a preferred method of termite eradication among exterminators, homeowners, and property managers. The Sentricon System is effective for eliminating termites. The process involves stations that are placed in the soil to eradicate new and old colonies. The process requires no digging, drilling, or injecting dangerous chemicals into the earth, so there are no adverse environmental effects.

Let Us Solve Your Termite Problem

 If you have noticed a termite problem, contact American Services immediately. Often, the infestation is advanced before it is discovered, so quick action is required to prevent extensive property damage. Our exterminators will mitigate the problem to get rid of termites, prevent new colonies from forming, and stop further damage caused by these voracious pests.

Mosquito

More than Just an Annoying Pest Problem

While mosquitoes are undoubtedly annoying, they potentially pose more serious problems. These pests are known to carry a wide variety of dangerous and deadly diseases. Some diseases known to be spread by the mosquito include Malaria, Yellow Fever, Encephalitis, Dengue Fever, Filariasis, and West Nile Virus. The Center for Disease Control reported 2,205 cases of West Nile Virus and 97 deaths in the United States in 2014. American Services provides comprehensive pest control services, including mosquito control in the Broken Arrow, OK and Tulsa, OK areas.

Mosquito Facts

  • Only the female mosquito bites

  • People are most commonly bitten by mosquitoes at dawn and dusk

  • Mosquitoes lay eggs in standing water and only need the amount that would fill a thimble to reproduce

  • The wings of the insect beat about 500 times per minute

  • The insects can detect very small areas of bare skin, as small as a dime

Mosquito protection should include exterminating the insects, avoiding outdoors at the times that bites are the biggest problem, wearing protective clothing, and insect repellent. Additionally, eliminating standing water on your property can help prevent breeding. The exterminators at American Services provide effective insect control services. We utilize MistAway to eradicate these pests from your property.

 Let the exterminators at American Services help you get rid of insects and make your backyard an enjoyable and safe place for your family and friends.

More than 20 different varieties of ants are known to take refuge in homes, schools and businesses.  There are more than 700 species of ants in the United States and about two dozen types are considered pests.  They include:

  • Odorous house ants, which commonly nest in basements, crawl spaces and adjacent structures.  The ant gives off a pungent odor when crushed, which is the source of its name.
  • The Pavement ant is found on both the East and West coasts and is aptly named for its habit of nesting under pavement.
  • Fire ants, native to Argentina, are an invasive predatory species, gained their reputation by instantly attacking any animal or human unfortunate enough to stumble upon their mound type nest.
  • Carpenter ants are another aggressive species of ant found across the country.  These wood-destroying insect hollow out wood for nesting causing costly property damage.
  • Little Black ants are widely spread in urban and industrial areas. They prefer to live outdoors but will occasionally infest your home.  They swarm during mating season and forage for food inside.  They like honeydew melon, sweets, vegetables, greasy foods, cornmeal and plant secretions.

Little Black Ants

Brown recluse spider

Brown recluse spider control

American Services Inc. specializes in the control of this spider: the brown recluse, which is also known as the fiddleback spider.

 Spider control is essential for the safety of your family. The brown recluse can have seriously dangerous bites, and are sometimes difficult to distinguish from other types of spiders. Black widow spiders and yellow sac spiders can also be a problem.

Characteristics of dangerous spiders

– The brown recluse spider has a yellowish or brown color and carries a violin-shaped marking on its back. Its legs are thin, long, and covered with a fine hair

– The yellow sac spider is yellow in color, with the abdomen being significantly brighter than the head or legs

– The black widow spider is the female of the species. She is shiny and black, and has a red hourglass-shaped marking on her abdomen

Tips for spider control

Identifying spiders can be tricky. The professionals at American Services Inc. can help you identify which spiders may be harmful and which are not. Many U.S. households have a spider presence and for some it is noticeable. You can reduce their presence by keeping food off the floors and clearing out low traffic areas such as closets.

Not all spiders are harmful, and some are very beneficial, such as the spiny orb weaver which hunts small flying insects. The wolf spider keeps common pests out of your lawn. Call us to determine if your spider population is out of control or potentially harmful.

Bed Bug Control Services

Residential and Commercial Bed Bug Control Services

Bed bugs have experienced a resurgence in the United States in recent years. These pests cause painful and itchy bites. Because exterminating bedbugs require specific knowledge and training, it is important to contact a professional with experience in this area. At American Services, we offer a range of insect control and rodent control services in Broken Arrow, OK and Tulsa, OK, including bed bug extermination.

The Dangers Posed by Bedbugs

Bed bugs bite and cause itching that is far more intense than the typical mosquito bite. The area may swell and a rash may be present. Scratching the itch is not a good idea, as it aggravates the area and may cause infection. This is most common in kids, as they are usually unable to ignore the urge to scratch the itchy area.

Identifying a Bed Bug Infestation

There are a few signs that may indicate a bedbug problem. If you see small bugs that look like thin apple seeds, you may have a problem with bed bugs. They are found in and around the bed, including under mattresses, wood panels, and around the headboard of the bed. They cause a reddish brown stain on the mattress and cause a musty and sweet odor.
