Pest Control Morrisville
Morrisville originally got its name in 1852 from Jeremiah Morris who donated the land to the North Carolina Railroad. Due to the rail line that was developed thanks to the donation from Jeremiah Morris, this town served as a major intersection for transporting goods and people during the 1800s since it intersected Chapel Hill, Raleigh, and Hillsborough. Due to its strategic location, Morrisville was where “The Battle of Morrisville” was fought at Morrisville Station.
Morrisville has grown considerably since it’s roots in the 1800s, and now has a population of 24,732 as of 2016. It has become a desirable location for homeowners thanks to it’s convenient location within the Research Triangle, and is showing rapid growth as more and more areas of land are cleared to make way for new communities. As these communities emerge, wildlife and insects native to the area find refuge within the homes and businesses in Morrisville, so there is an ever increasing need for pest control services that can not only eliminate insects, but also trap and remove wildlife, and prevent further infestation or wildlife intrusion through pest exclusion services offered by EcoTek.
EcoTek Termite and Pest Control has been providing quality service since 2011. We can help protect your home, your family and your pets from pests that might invade your property. Contact us for a free pest control inspection and estimate.
Most homeowners in the Morrisville area have called EcoTek to get help with exterminating common household ants that have been known to infest food in pantries and areas that are moist and prone to moisture, but there are extensive locations around Morrisville that are intensely wooded where carpenter ants will enter in a home, and even though they don’t really consume wood, they actually tunnel through it and make it weak which can result in quick deterioration of the wood. The damage that carpenter ants do is similar to that of termites.
There has also been an intrusion of fire ants that have become extremely common throughout many Morrisville communities. Fire ants have a tendency to prefer wide open places where they can get strong sunlight, and fire ant colonies can easily cover an open area, rendering it difficult for your family and pets to enjoy activities around your property. In order to completely eliminate ants you need to kill the queen, which can be difficult to do. It is best to turn to a professional to take care of your ants for you. Call our ant control exterminators today for a free inspection and estimate.

Bed Bug Control
There’s absolutely nothing worse than getting up after a night of tossing and turning and feeling like something is biting you, and then you realize you have a bed bug infestation. Signs of bed bugs include small bites in a straight line, blood on your sheets, as well as black droppings in your bedding. You may be able to see eggs near the bed bugs’ nest. Bed bugs may nest in your headboard, in the baseboards near your bed or in your mattress. They can be difficult to spot since they can go up to 30 days without feeding. However, they are visible to the naked eye if you know what to look for.
A lot of people feel that bed bugs are the result of poor cleaning, but in reality they get into your home or business by attaching to your clothing from trips to hotels, motels, stores, and even from a health club locker. Removing bed bug infestations are not simply limited to your pillows and comforters since bed bugs can also survive and reproduce within furniture such as couches and seats. EcoTek offers bed bug treatments that use a chemical solution. Call our bed bug control technicians today for a free bed bug inspection and free estimate.
Of all the pests that EcoTek deals with, it’s cockroaches that our customers hate the most. Roaches can infest your food, crawl around on your cookware and the plates you dine on, and they will breed and leave eggs and droppings throughout your kitchen. Some roaches such as the Palmetto bug can get as large as 1 1/2 inches long, and can fly through your home infesting locations around your sinks, tubs, and even your laundry room since they seek out moisture.
Cockroaches breed rapidly and just one or two can quickly become thousands. It can be difficult to kill all of the roaches because their nests are difficult to find. It is important to kill both the adult roaches and the larvae to stop the infestation completely. In store solutions rarely address the entire problem. Our roach exterminators know just how to eliminate any type of cockroach infestation, and can also help clean up the waste materials they leave behind. Call the EcoTek cockroach control experts today for a free of charge roach inspection and free estimate.
Flea and Tick Control
Although most people associate flea and tick extermination only to people who’ve got pets, it’s actually quite common for individuals to see flea and tick infestations without even possessing a dog or cat. Ticks and fleas can easily connect themselves to children and parents as they spend quality time around their back yard, and then carry them back inside where they can live and multiply. Although fleas are definitely an annoyance from your frequent need to scratch as they attack you, ticks on the other hand are extremely harmful since they are known carriers of diseases such as Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Lyme disease.
While you may be tempted to address the problem on your own with flea powders or outdoor sprays, the most effective way to treat the problem is to call the professionals. At EcoTek, we can eliminate fleas and ticks while keeping you, your family and pets safe. At even the first signal of any flea or tick infestation, it’s recommended that you contact the flea and tick control experts at EcoTek for a free flea and tick inspection and free estimate.
