Pest Control Fuquay Varina
Fuquay-Varina is in southern Wake county, and is about twenty five minutes south of Raleigh. It started out as two different towns, Fuquay Springs and Varina that grew large due to the tobacco industry. They merged to form one town in the 1960s. In the last twenty years the town has more than doubled in size bringing the population up to 22,644 as more people are living there and commuting to work in Raleigh or the Research Triangle Park. Fuquay-Varina offers the benefits of living in a small town and has a number of public parks and areas that are still not developed. Fuquay-Varina has moderate temperatures through the majority of the year with mild winters and nice spring and fall weather, and even though the weather is a major draw for those that move to the area, it is also favorable to a large number of insects that call North Carolina home. The experts at EcoTek Termite and Pest Control can help with all your pest control needs including exterminating termites, roaches, ants, bed bugs and rodents. Our experts have been providing quality pest control services to the Triangle since 2011.

There are three different types of ants that may plague your property. Household ants are the type you may see in your kitchen. These ants will build their colony outside and send workers in to find food and water. Carpenter ants can cause damage similar to termites since they will build their colonies inside of the wood of your home. Fire ants will bite your family members or pets and can cause serious allergic reactions in some people. Fire ants will build their colonies in your yard, but they are difficult to deal with because of their extensive tunneling systems.
Ants can be difficult to eliminate because you must kill the queen to eliminate the colony. Baits that you buy at the store may only solve the problem for a short time, and then the ants will return in a few weeks. While trying to keep your home clean may help to prevent ants, it will not stop a colony that is already established. If you want to deal with your ants once and for all, contact the ant control experts at EcoTek who can perform a free ant inspection and give you a treatment plan customized for your needs.

They can go up to thirty days between feedings, so you may not realize that you have a problem until an infestation has established itself. Signs of bed bugs are the rows of small itchy bites, bloodstains on your sheets and droppings that are black or rust colored in your bedding on your mattress or on the wall behind your headboard. While it’s true bed bugs do not spread diseases, but they can cause allergic reactions in some people.

They can chew through items you have stored, ruin your food and chew through walls and electrical wires creating a possible fire hazard.
