Ants can be a problem as the weather gets warmer. There are three different types of ants that may plague your home and property. Household ants will come into your kitchen or other areas of your home looking for food and water. Carpenter ants set up their nests inside of the wood of your home and cause damage similar to termites. Fire ants are the most dangerous ants because they can bite you, your children or your pets. They leave painful bites and can cause allergic reactions for some people.
Treating ants on your own can be difficult because in order to eliminate all the ants, you need to kill the queen and the entire colony. Baits that you buy at the store may stop the ants temporarily, but they will often come back. The technicians at EcoTek can perform a free ant inspection. They can quickly determine the types of ants and choose the best ant control treatment to solve the problem. Contact EcoTek today.

Bed Bug Control
Bed bugs are an itchy problem that are bothering more people throughout the United States. Bed bugs were eradicated from the United States in the 1960s, but in recent years they have made a resurgence primarily because of the increased travel. People will pick them up when traveling and bring them home in their luggage. Bed bugs can quickly set up an infestation because many people do not realize there is an issue right away.
Signs of bed bugs include seeing rows of small bites, droppings in the bedding and mattress, as well as bloodstained sheets. Bed bugs are difficult to find and treat yon your own because of their small size. Bed bugs are nocturnal so you will rarely see them out at night. It is important to apply the bed bug treatment directly to the bugs. Our technicians can find all the places the bed bugs may be hiding and apply a bed bug control treatment to stop them. Contact EcoTek to set up your free bed bug inspection.

Once in your home, they can quickly set up an infestation because roaches can lay up to fifty eggs at a time.

There are several types of cockroaches that can invade your home including American, German and Oriental roaches. Each type of roach requires a different treatment plan. Our technicians can identify the types of roaches that are in your home and perform a cockroach control treatment to eliminate the roaches that are in your home.

Wildlife Control and Removal
Squirrels, raccoons, birds and bats may be fine outside, but it becomes an entirely different issue when they set up their nests inside of your home. Squirrels and raccoons can damage your home and cause significant damage to the structure while birds and bats pose a health risk because of the droppings that they leave behind in your attic. More importantly, these animals may also threaten your family or pets as they try to defend their territory.
The wildlife control experts at EcoTek can help you protect your home and catch the animals for you. We only use humane traps and we will check them daily to make sure that the animals do not face dehydration or go hungry. These traps are safe in the event that a neighborhood pet accidentally wanders in. Once we catch and remove the wildlife we can help with clean up, decontamination, repairs and install exclusion barriers to stop them from coming back.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my pets be safe during treatment?
Pets are naturally attracted to the treatment when it is wet, so we ask that you remove the pets from your home during a treatment and for four hours after the treatment is completed. At that point it should be dry and your pets will be safe.
Can I be gone during treatments?
You do not need to be home during a treatment, but you will need to give the technician access to your property. The technician will leave a note stating the date, time and type of treatment.
How long do treatments take?
Most treatments will take about twenty minutes. The initial appointment will take about thirty minutes. If you have a larger home, the appointment may take longer. Bed bug treatments take about an hour per room that is being treated.
What steps do I need to take before a treatment?
It depends on the type of treatment that you are having done. For a flea treatment you will need to vacuum and wash the bedding. For bed bugs, you will need to clear the clutter out of your room and wash and dry the bedding on high heat. You will receive a list when you schedule an appointment.
What damages can termites and carpenter ants do?
Termites and carpenter ants will both eat through the wooden structures in your home. Termites eat the wood, while carpenter ants just build their nests. Termites can also eat through the casings around the wiring and create a fire hazard.
How can I tell that we have fleas?
The first sign is that you will have bites around your ankles. You may also notice them on your pet or that your pet is scratching more often. If you check with a flea comb, you should be able to see the fleas on your pet.
How long does it take to clear up a rodent infestation?
This depends on how serious the infestation is. We will keep setting traps until the last rodent is caught from your home. If you have a large infestation, it can take some time to clear out all the animals. Once the last rodent is caught we can help with decontamination and cleanup
