Commercial Pest Control in Minneapolis

First impressions are key in the world today.  When considering first impressions on your business, you should be more than concerned with what people think.  Having any type of insect crawling around your building can make it look dirty or unsanitary.  Worse is the fact that there are laws to abide by for sanitation reasons, and if your business has an infestation not taken care of it may be shut down or fined!

What you need is a pest control service that will handle your problem immediately.  At Eco Tech we have been dealing with insect and pest problems for 15 years.  We are well trained and professional with our work when handling these problems.  Also, we are very easy to work with, affordable, and flexible.  All things you deserve and sometimes need when considering your busy business.

An added bonus when hiring Eco Tech is that you know you and your company are doing something to help the environment.  We believe in preserving nature and the ecosystem, therefore our organic pest treatments only harm the pests.  Animals or personnel in your work place will not be harmed, nor will anything that is not supposed to be…just the pests.

Everyone knows the saying, “Good night, sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite.”

When traveling, here are tips to help you SLEEP tighter.

  • Survey any and every hotel room for signs of a bed bugs infestation.  Bed bugs are not a sanitation issue, which means they can be found in any hotel or motel – from a one-star to five-star location.
  • Signs they are present?  Large infestations of bed bugs can create a musty, sweet odor, like soda pop syrup. They leave behind brown or red spots on sheets.  While not known to spread disease like many other pests, bed bugs can leave itchy, bloody welts on the skin.  (Welts more commonly appear when the victim is sensitive to insect bites.)
  • Lift and look.  Bed bugs tend to settle in close proximity to their food source – you!  During the day, these nocturnal insects disappear in crevices associated with mattresses, box springs, sheets, furniture, upholstery and hollow bedposts, as well as crevices behind baseboards, pictures and even torn wallpaper. Make sure to lift and look around all possible hiding spots for bed bugs in the hotel room, not just the mattress.
  • Elevate your luggage and other items.  Carefully inspect the hotel’s luggage rack.  If there are no signs of bed bugs on it, use it to keep your suitcase off the floor and away from the bed.  Also, pull the luggage rack away from the wall.  This will reduce the likelihood of the   insect crawling up the wall and getting into your things.
  • Examine your luggage while repacking and once you return home, to ensure you have not picked up unwelcome visitors.  Bed bugs are great hitchhikers, so be sure to check your luggage and clothing for bed bugs before bringing luggage back into the bedroom.  We recommend unpacking in your garage or utility room.)
  • Professional help is out there – use it!  Because bed bugs can survive extreme temperatures (up to 113 degrees Fahrenheit) and are extremely difficult to kill, treating for an infestation requires the use of a licensed pest control professional with specific experience treating for these pests.

Are You Trying To Tackle Bed Bugs On Your Own?

What does a bed bug bite look like?   This is a very common question I get from people when I go on bed bug inspections.  There is tons of confusion when it comes to bed bugs. People often don’t know if they are dealing with bed bugs or something else when the infestation begins.  Most people associate bed bugs infestation with something that only happens at dirty motels or dirty homes.  Most people do not realize that these pesky insects can occur in four star hotels, brand new apartment complexes, and homes that are cleaned every day.

In the easiest way I can, I am going to describe a bed bug bite.  These bites first appear as a itchy red dot or several red marks or red rashes.  It really all depends on how you react to the bite.  Every person’s skin will react differently.  Some people do not react at all to the bite.  It really just depends on your bodily response.

Often times, the bites appear in threes.  This is not always the case.  In severe cases, you may have bed bugs bites all over your body.  In other cases, you may just have a few bites in different areas on the top of your body.

You should notice that I said the top of your body.  These nasty little parasites usually strike on the upper half of your body because they are attracted to the CO2 you emit when you sleep at night.  They can sense your body heat and CO2 and move toward you for their blood meal.  If you are getting bit many times on your feet and legs, but not on your back, neck, shoulders, and arms, then you are probably not dealing with bed bugs. This could be a sign of fleas, and the treatment for fleas is entirely different.  In addition, infestations almost always start in a bed room.  If they start in another room, it could be because someone has been sleeping in the room.  In the early stages of the infestation, you will likely only get bitten during the night hours.

Once you notice a bed bug problem you should call Eco Tech.  To begin with, we will thoroughly inspect the area, knowing where the problem is if there is one.  After that we effectively treat the area using our nontoxic organic product line, ensuring to exterminate all the pests along with ensuring they will not return!

We offer 24/7 emergency service and serve the entire Twin Cities Metro Area. Please, don’t delay.  The longer you wait to treat the bed bug infestation, the further the bed bugs will spread.
