The EcoTek exterminators are experts at eliminating ants inside of your home and on your property. We understand the different types of ants that can invade your yard and home, and know the different ways to eliminate them. North Carolina is home to carpenter ants, which can destroy wood just like termites, but there are also fire ants that can produce a multitude of ant mounds throughout your property and are dangerous for both your family and pets since their painful bite can cause welts, and in some cases require immediate medical attention. There are also house ants that can infest your home and make your cupboards their home.
It is important to do more than just treat for the ants that are coming into your home. In order to truly eliminate the ants you need to kill the queen to eliminate the colony. The experts at EcoTek can identify where the colony is and treat it so that you no longer have an issue with ants. Our ant control service has both a conventional and an organic solution to getting rid of ants quickly without leaving any harsh residues. Our solutions are safe for you, your family and your pets.
Termite Control and Free Termite Inspections
If you happen to see mud tubes like the one in the picture to the right, then you have termites. Other indicators that you might have termites are areas of wood damage and discarded wings. If you see any of these warnings, then chances are termites are inside your walls eating away at the wood, causing expensive damage that can compromise the wooden structure of your house or company and lower the value of your property. Some types of termites can actually eat through the wires in your home and cause a fire hazard in addition to the structural damage.

Bed Bug Control
If you wake up itching and notice you have rows of red bites (instead of sporadic single bites), then it’s highly possible you might have bed bugs. Other signs of bed bugs include blood stains or dark areas on your sheets, pillow cases, or your night clothes. Bed bugs often enter your home through catching a ride on your luggage after a trip away from home. They can also enter when you buy second hand furniture. If you are on a business trip and expect you have been exposed to bed bugs, you should not bring your luggage into your home. You can treat your clothes by drying them on high heat, which should eliminate the bed bugs. You may want to dispose of your luggage.
Bed bugs can be difficult to spot because they are so small. They can leave skin casings, eggs or feces on your bedding or near your bed on the wall. However many people often overlook these signs. They can also be difficult to spot because they can go up to three weeks between eating. If you’re unsure if you have bed bugs and just want to play it safe, then call EcoTek for a free bed bug inspection and we’ll determine if your home is infested with bed bugs. If we find them we offer can treat for them with an effective chemical spray that will quickly eliminate bed bugs throughout your home.

Fleas and Tick Control
Although most people call EcoTek to eliminate fleas and ticks from their yard and/or home out of concern for their pets, ticks pose a serious threat to people as well and should be completely eliminated from the areas around your yard so they don’t attach themselves to either you or your pets and pass the potential for both Lyme disease or Rocky Mountain spotted fever. Ticks may enter your home on a pet or or on your clothing and then wander around your home looking for a place to feed.
Fleas are also known carriers of typhus, tapeworms, and cat scratch fever. They can multiply rapidly. You may notice that you have fleas if you have bites around your ankles or that your pet is scratching. You need to do more than just treat your pets if you notice these symptoms.
