Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs are very small insects that will make their home in your bed, box springs and behind your headboard. They feed at night and will crawl out while you are sleeping. Bed bugs can go up to a month without feeding, so they can establish a colony before you realize that you have a problem. While bed bugs do not spread diseases, they can cause serious allergic reactions in some people. Bed bug infestations are often the result of bringing them home with you after a hotel stay.
Signs of a bed bug infestation include rows of small itchy bites, bloodstains on your sheets and droppings in the bedding and mattress. Bed bugs are hard to treat because the pesticide needs to be applied to the bugs directly. They will hide in very small cracks and are difficult to find. Fortunately, the bed bug control experts at EcoTek can find the bed bugs and apply treatment to them directly. Call EcoTek today to schedule your free bed bug inspection.

With Hillsborough being surrounded by farms and near a river, there are a number of different wild animals that may wander through your yard and attempt to make it their home.

Some like raccoons or foxes may pose a threat to your children or your pets if they build their nests in your yard.
Catching wildlife on your own can be dangerous since they may bite or scratch you and spread disease. It is important to call the wildlife control experts at EcoTek. We use humane traps to catch the animals and then release them at least twenty-five miles away from your home to prevent them from returning.
