The way to identify termites or ants are looking at the characteristics of each one. The termites most people will see are the reproductive termites. These termites are identified by the black body, wings longer than the body, it has a head and 1 node (one body). The ants can have a red or black body, wings shorter than the body, it has a head and 2 nodes (two round parts make up the body). If you need help identifying the insect call and schedule a time for us to come by and assist you!

There are 3 types of subterranean termites in each colony: soldiers, reproductive, and workers. The soldiers defend the colony from invaders, such as ants. The reproductive termites reproduce and are identified by their black bodies and clear wings that are longer then the body. The workers are the ones you need to worry about, they are a creamy white color and they cause the damage to your homes. Most homes in Oklahoma will get termites as some point. Make sure you have a licensed termite inspector check your home annually!

The type of termites found in Oklahoma are called subterranean termites. These subterranean termites travel through dirt tunnels to avoid the air which dries them out. Subterranean termites build these dirt tunnels in the walls of homes and destroy the wood and sheetrock. Spring is the time when termites begin swarming, which means they are leaving the colony and starting a new one. Have a licensed termite inspector check your home annually to avoid costly damage!

If you want your home free of pests, start with basic home maintenance.
1. Make sure there is proper drainage around the exterior of your home. Standing, stagnate water will attract pests. Eliminate standing water from the exterior of your home.
2. Caulk around windows, doors, soffits, and any cracks or crevices that insects can crawl through.
3. Maintain a tight seal around the exterior doors in your home. Over time, the sweep on the bottom of the doors can deteriorate. Inspect often and replace when needed.
4. Keep your pets food area clean. When not in use, move food off of floor to avoid insects infesting the food dishes.
5. Keep kitchen clean after meals and avoid leaving food out for long periods of time.
6. Sign up for a quarterly pest control program to maximize results.

If the recent rumor of the 'Two-Striped Telamonia Spider' has you checking under the toilet seats let me put your mind at rest. This rumor, according to Snopes.com, is mostly false. Although the spider itself does exist in Asian rain forests, there have no sightings in North America and certainly no deaths.
There are two poisonous spiders found in the state of Oklahoma. The first and most dangerous is the brown recluse. The brown recluse can be identified by it's light to dark brown color and the distinct fiddle shape found on the pest's back (also lending to the nickname, fiddleback spider). This shy, nocturnal pest can deliver a venomous and potent bite if threatened. The bite of the brown recluse will produce an extremely painful pus-filled blister. The skin surrounding the bite can also be affected and in some cases full recovery can take months.
Oklahomans also should be aware of the black widow. Although the bite of the black widow doesn't tend to be as severe as the brown recluse, this spider can still deliver a venous sting. The black widow spider can be identified by it's glossy black color and bright red markings on the belly. This species of spider is also infamous for the cannibalistic mating habits in which the female kills the male after mating.
Both of these frightening pests can be found in dry, dark, undisturbed places. Places such as wood piles, garages, attics, closets, shoes and piles of unmoved clothing.
