Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs will often bite multiple times during a feeding leaving a row of small itchy bites. They can also cause a serious allergic reaction in some people. While bed bugs are not known transmitters or diseases, they can keep people awake at night as they worry about being bitten in your sleep. If you notice bloodstains on your sheets or black or rust colored droppings in your bedding or on your mattress, you likely have bed bugs.
Bed bugs are not a result of poor housekeeping. Most people will accidentally bring them home with them after a hotel stay. Bed bugs are nocturnal and they are very small. It can be difficult to see the bed bugs themselves, and even more difficult to treat them on your own since they hide in very small cracks. If you think you may have bed bugs, contact EcoTek for a free bed bug inspection today. Our bed bug control technicians are trained to find all the places and to treat them so you no longer need to worry about being bitten in your sleep.
Turning on a light and seeing a cockroach scurry to safety in the middle of the night can be an alarming sight. Cockroaches are one of the common pests that we are called on to treat. They carry bacteria on their bodies which they deposit on the dishes as they crawl over them or through your food. Cockroaches can make you sick with illnesses like salmonellosis. They can also aggravate people who have allergies or asthma. Signs of a cockroach infestation include seeing their egg casings, a strong odor and droppings that look like pepper flakes along the edges of your countertop.
Each type of cockroach requires a slightly different treatment. In Roxboro there are three common types including German, Oriental and American cockroaches. The cockroach control technicians at EcoTek can identify the type of roaches and determine a treatment plan that will flush the roaches out of their hiding places and eliminate them once and for all. Contact EcoTek to set up your free cockroach inspection today.
Flea and Tick Control
Fleas and ticks are often associated with pets. They will often come into your home on your pet. However, you may end up with a flea problem if you visit a place that is battling a flea infestation. Signs of fleas include bites on your ankles, and signs that your pet does not feel well or that your pet is scratching more often than usual. An inspection of your pet with a flea comb can help you determine if it has fleas. While you need to treat your pet for fleas, you will also need to treat your home because fleas can live in your carpet and on your furniture.
Ticks can also cause issues since they spread a number of serious illnesses including Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease. These illnesses can become quite serious if not treated by doctor. You should check yourself and your pets for ticks regularly. If you suspect that you have flea or tick problem, the flea and tick control technicians at EcoTek can perform a free flea and tick inspection. In addition to treating your home, our experts can also treat your yard to prevent future issues.
Mice and rats can quickly invade your home and start an infestation. These pests are particularly dangerous for your family as they carry a number of serious illnesses including hantavirus. They spread this as they leave trails of urine and feces as they wander through your home. They can also damage your home as they chew through walls, wiring and insulation. The damage that they do to your home can be expensive to repair.
Trapping rodents on your own can be risky because you may end up being scratched or bitten. At EcoTek, we offer a turnkey rodent control solution that will not only cover trapping and removing the rodents, but will also help with cleanup and decontamination. As part of the service, we will also install exclusion barriers to stop them from getting in your home. Stop worrying about the rodents that have invaded your home and contact EcoTek to schedule your free rodent inspection today.
Roxboro is a setting where wildlife may wander into your yard. The real issue is when they decide to build their nests in your home. You may be struggling with birds or bats in your attic leaving behind droppings and guano that can spread diseases and smell. Or you may have an issue with a raccoon in your crawlspace that is tearing up the venting and insulation. All of these animals can spread disease and may possibly become aggressive to you or your family members.
If you find wildlife on your property, you need to act quickly to address the issue. EcoTek has wildlife control experts who can set up humane traps that will not harm the animals. The traps will be checked regularly and once the animals are caught, we will drive them over twenty-five miles away before we release the m into the wild. We can also install pest exclusion barriers in your home to help stop other animals from finding their way inside. Contact EcoTek to set up your free wildlife inspection.
