Bowden Termite & Pest Control

Bowden Termite & Pest Control


I would like to thank the technicians that came out Today. They were very professional kind and courteous. Oh thank you Kobe and your brother
I was a customer of Terminex for 3 years and orkin for about 7 days before I switched to Bowden. Affordable, professional, friendly, and when I called I spoke to Mr. Bowden, not someone at a corporate call center in Georgia who knows nothing about the local office. I’ll be recommending Bowden to everyone I can!
I have to brag on one of your technicians - Tony Woodall. He's a very courteous young man, he takes his time and does a thorough job spraying my house.

Since 1966 Bowden Pest Control has been trusted by eastern Oklahoma residents & business' for all pe

// FORT GIBSON // JJ’s reached out to us today letting us know their food delivery isn’t going to arrive on time from their supplier. Unfortunately this means we’ll be rescheduling their lunch service to TUESDAY, AUGUST 30th from 11:00am- 2:00pm. We’ll post a reminder as the date approaches so you don’t forget this delicious opportunity coming to town 😋 🍔 🌭


🐯 FORT GIBSON 🐯 We’ll be hosting JJ’s Burgers & Dawgs next week: Tuesday, August 23rd from 11:00am-2:00pm.

If you’re on W. Benge Rd. between S. Scott St. and Lee St. you will see “Del Lane”. The food truck will be set up in the cul de sac. Can’t wait to see you there! 😋 🍔 🌭


The weather is cooling off and we’re chomping at the bit for bonfires and Friday night lights! Take some advice from the National Park Service for the best marshmallow 😋 🔥🌙✨

It’s ok if you fall apart sometimes. S’mores fall a part, and we still love them.


Please sir, can I have s’more? If a marshmallow holds it all together (we said it), it’s important to do it right. Here are some quick tips to achieve marshmallow perfection:

🔥 For the light golden-brown color and a perfectly cooked interior, you want to find the subtle flames at the base of the fire and be patient. As you can see in the graphic, we’re not doing this.

🔥 Frequently turn the marshmallow as it hovers over the embers rather than the flames. As you can see in the graphic, yeah, not yet.

🔥 While putting a marshmallow over the flames will surely result in what appears to be an extremely fast method to cooking marshmallows (wow, that really caught fire), the quick exposure to intense heat will simply char the outside, leaving the inside still tough and cool (But we all want to be tough and cool, right?) As you can see in the graphic, well, you know.

🔥 When it develops a light brown coating on all sides and appears to be slightly sliding off the stick, quickly transfer it to your prepped s’more base and enjoy!

🔥 Caution. You may be tempted to swing your roasting skewer back and forth at a rapid pace. This may cause your marshmallow to launch unexpectedly, in which it may land on an unsuspecting tree, your car windshield, or a former friends forehead. We repeat, do not launch marshmallows, unless you’re in the car, they are uncooked, and someone was asking for it.

Summary: The best method to prepare a marshmallow, is to be patient and avoid the red-hot flames at the top. (Good general life tip.)

P.S. OMG there’s more? S'mores on a cool summer night are the best, but be sure to follow proper campfire procedures when tending to and putting out your fires. Always drown, stir, feel, and repeat until the area is cool to the touch.

A common question for initial maintenance services is “Do I need to do anything to prepare?” The short answer is, no! Every property is different. We will need to assess when we arrive. 9.9/10 times there’s no major issue. Christofer has the stove pulled out in this photo to reach behind better and will move it back. Easy enough! 😌🤩 We’ll work around you and make it as simple as possible. If you just haven’t had time to “prepare” but you you know you need pest control, don’t hesitate anymore. Call 918.478.2174 to get the help you need!
///// **Other specialized services may require some prep work- customers are always notified if it’s necessary**



We’re feeling a little Cinderella 👸🏻 🕊🐿🦝🦌🐺🐸 over here with the wildlife lately!! The littlest Bowden has turned into quite the spotter!!! She said - mommy there’s a deer in here 🤗 It was in fact, not a deer. Spotting - 10 pts. Identification - we’re working on that 😅 (check our May 9th post if you missed that one!)


Our internet company is experiencing an outage due to storm damage on a line we’re connected to. This is affecting our phone lines, voicemail and our ability to look up account information/ take payments.

However, they have been doing so since about the third week of April. They are also wearing a new pair of gloves for each stop.

Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19 | CISA

A measure has been issued by OK Gov. Stitt enacting a "safer at home" policy. This is to protect our "most vulnerable" population. We have been aware and it's been officially acknowledged nationwide that Pest Control is an "essential" service. As Covid - 19 and and it's impact continue to develop, we want to assure you that our top priority is the health and safety of our team and community. We continue to take steps to ensure we are operating as harmlessly as possible.

Public Health officials attribute our clean quality of life to three important variables: the best vaccines and medications, vastly improved sanitation and high quality pest control. That and the opportunity to provide jobs with desirable work hours and competitive pay are two of our greatest joys. We don't take the responsibility we have to our community lightly. Please support our team at this time with your kind words and well wishes if you see them out. They are wearing above industry standard PPE and are modifying treatments as needed. You can let us know if you're not feeling well when we call for your service.

Our prayers and best regards are with you all!

To Our Valued Customers,

We would like to take this opportunity to address how COVID - 19 is affecting our services to you during this period of social distancing. We have been watching and waiting to determine what would be best. As of now, we will continue services as they have always been done. Call reminders and visits will not be interrupted. On the backend however, we have implemented procedures suggested by federal and state governments to ensure health and safety for customers and technicians. We find the safety of everyone to be a top priority! These are some things we are doing:

1. Our office will be CLOSED to the public. Please call 918-478-2174 if you need to make a card payment. Checks are still accepted at P.O. Box 1028, Fort Gibson, OK 74434. That is how we get most of our office traffic and is important to address. Our services are still available and running smoothly but the foot traffic in the office will be staff only. The office and route vehicles will be sanitized at the end of each working day.

2. The staff has been directed to stay at least 6 ft. from other persons during the day in addition to regular hand washing with changing gloves in between each stop. Technicians have been advised to communicate if they're not feeling well to determine if their symptoms suggest they should stay home. We are staying well informed in all areas.

3. We ask customers to please call the office if you aren't feeling well so that we can work out a specific treatment option for you. We have options! You don't have to go unprotected, we will just have to modify how we address treatment should you need that.

We feel that making informed decisions based on proper information allow us to take appropriate and preventative measures without panic or fear. Since 1966 we have been about communicating and serving our community. As new information arises, we'll continue to share our decisions with you. Thank You for being a part of our business!
