Air Duct Cleaningman cleaning a dirty air duct

When was the last time you thought about the inside of your air ducts? Probably almost never. That’s what the pests living inside them hope you do. Air ducts move air from our furnace to other parts of our home. But for pests like spiders, mice, and cockroaches, air ducts are highways they use to get all over our house and avoid detection.

Air ducts aren’t just safe havens for pests, over time they fill with dust and toxins that accumulate and are blown all around your home. Getting your air ducts cleaned is a great way to get rid of bothersome allergens and dander that may be causing you health problems. At Okeena Pest Control we offer air-duct cleaning throughout Jackson to ensure your home is safe and pest-free.

Termite Control In Jackson

There are two common types of termites in the United States. The first is subterranean termites. Subterranean termites live underground or in other damp, dark areas like dead trees and rotting wood. When they come out to forage for food or in search of a new nest, they must create mud tubes to keep the moisture inside. Termites use these tubes to gain access to buildings and homes. 

The other type of termite is drywood termites. Drywood termites are the most common type of termite in the United States and can infest lumber, furniture, hardwoods, and softwoods. Because they don’t require as much moisture to survive, drywood termites can live pretty much anywhere. Drywood termites are the most destructive termites, causing a lot of damage to structures and support beams as they carve out their nests. 

Bed Bug Control

Bed bugs are the bane of any Jackson homeowner’s existence. Six-legged, blood-sucking creatures that feed on you and your family at night. Just one female can quickly lead to an infestation of thousands of bed bugs in your bedroom and a long and arduous battle with an unseen enemy. Luckily at Okeena Pest Control we come prepared for battle. Our trained experts use our cutting-edge bed bug treatment to eliminate bed bugs and won’t allow them to return.

Wasp Protectionwasp nest on home

One of the worst parts about spring and summer is having to deal with troublesome wasps. If you are doing repairs outside your home, especially on a ladder, be sure to inspect the area for wasp activity. Bees, wasps, and hornets love to build nests in the evens and peaks of our roofs, behind shutters, and in cracks in the siding. When disturbed, these insects will attack and can be very dangerous if you are on the roof or on a ladder. If you are having problems with wasps or you can’t reach them yourself, call the pros at Okeena Pest Control. Our pest control specialists are trained to eliminate nuisance wasp nests fast and effectively. 

Mosquito Control

One of our most requested pest control services is mosquito control. A female mosquito can lay clutches of eggs that can contain up to 300 eggs and she can lay a clutch every few days. In the fall, some eggs overwinter in a kind of cryo-stasis and hatch as soon as warm temperatures return. Only female mosquitoes need blood, that’s because she needs the proteins in mammalian blood to develop their eggs. It doesn’t take long for a new generation of mosquitoes to start terrorizing your lawn and driving your guests inside. At Okeena we can help you eliminate problematic mosquitoes from your Jackson yard with our mosquito control program
