If you have an insect or pest problem, it is not uncommon to also have a Spider problem.  Spiders feed upon insects, so it is natural for them to infest areas where large amounts of pests are present.

There are many different species of spiders; therefore they live in different habitats.  Some like damp areas while others like dry warm areas.  Luckily in Minnesota there are few cases of poisonous spiders statewide.

Hiring a professional pest control service can assure termination of spiders.  Along with the spiders being gone, the pests or insects causing the spiders can be exterminated using our nontoxic organic product line.  At Eco Tech we are well trained in dealing with the pest control of spiders and other pests.  See how our services along with our price are better for you and the earth.

Keep Rodents and Other Pests Away This Winter

For many Minnesota homeowners, pest management is a chore relegated to the warmer months of the year.  But many pests gain entry into homes in the winter as they seek shelter from the cold weather.  In fact, according to the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), rodents alone invade an estimated 21 million homes in the U.S. each winter.

With 24% of homeowners reporting mice infestations specifically in the winter, they are among the top pest issues of the season.  Mice and rats spread diseases like Salmonella and Hantavirus when they contaminate food, and bring fleas, ticks and lice indoors.  Rodents can also cause serious structural damage by chewing through wood and electrical wiring.

Other winter invaders pose health threats, as well.  Cockroaches and ants contaminate food sources, and cockroaches can trigger asthma attacks in children.  Spiders bite when they feel threatened, causing serious reactions in some people.

Pests including cockroaches, ants, spiders and especially rodents are common home invaders in the winter.   An infestation by these pests can cause serious health and property issues if not properly dealt with in a timely manner.  However, homeowners can help prevent infestation troubles by taking a proactive approach in eliminating entryways into the home.

To prevent pests from infesting your home this winter, here are some tips:

  • Seal cracks and holes on the outside of the home
  • Inspect wires, insulation and walls for gnaw marks, which may indicate a rodent infestation
  • Store boxes off of the floor to prevent rodents from residing in undisturbed areas
  • Keep branches and shrubbery trimmed away from the home
  • Store firewood at least 20 feet from the home and five feet off the ground
  • If you suspect an infestation, contact a pest professional

Why Use Green Pest Control In Minnesota?

Why Use Green Pest Control?

There has been growing concerns with the practice of routinely using pesticides where we study, eat, work, and play as to whether this is the best approach to controlling pests.  In 1995, Congress defined integrated pest management as “a sustainable approach to managing pests by combining biological, chemical, cultural, mechanical and physical tools in a way that minimizes economic, health, and environmental risks.”

We, as a society, have become increasingly sensitive to our environment and less willing to accept health risks, even very small ones, from contaminants in the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe or in the buildings we occupy.

These concerns are changing the way we live.  Pest control, too, is changing with the times. What was common and accepted practice a decade ago, is no longer seen as acceptable to many people.  A new approach to pest control has evolved.  It is called integrated pest management or IPM.  It reduces the risks from pesticides and improves the quality of pest control.  A concerned public is asking, and sometimes demanding that IPM be used instead of traditional pest control service, particularly in sensitive sites such as schools, hospitals, and restaurants.

We can handle your entire problem from start to finish, starting with removing animals humanely all the way through repairing their damages and preventing it from happening again. We are flexible to work with and affordable, making the process as easy as possible for you.
