Green Eco-Friendly Pest Removal in Minnesota – Silverfish, Part II

What do Silverfish eat?  Will I get sick if they are in my home? Will my kids get sick?  These are some of the common questions we get about these annoying insect pests.

The good news:  you will probably not get sick from silverfish in your home, and neither will your pets or children.  There has never been a study that we are aware of that proves silverfish make you sick.  The bad news:  what they eat.  Unfortunately, silverfish feed on things such as silk, synthetic fabrics and cotton.  In other words, they are eating your clothing and furniture upholstery.  It can be very unnerving to put on a pair of pants or a shirt and have a silverfish come crawling out.  Also, these nasty pests prefer a moist environment, so you will often find them crawling around your kitchen sink (embarrassing when company is around), bathroom and basement.  These rooms typically have some degree of moisture, so it is likely you would have them here.  Finally, and most disturbing, silverfish, given their size and shape, can and do easily get into your foodstuffs and eat them, or lay eggs in the packaging (i.e. cereal, flour, sugar, crackers, etc.).

If you have been seeing an alarming number of silverfish in your home, call the experts at Ecotech today.  We will answer any questions you may have, remove the infestation, and keep these critters from coming back.

Green Eco-Friendly Pest Removal in Minnesota – Silverfish, Part I

Although Silverfish are generally nuisance insects rather than harmful, we get numerous calls regarding these insects.  Silverfish can infest in large numbers, and with the wet season, we have seen some large infestations. 

These fast-moving insects are about ¼ to ½ inch long, have tapered oval shaped bodies, and have no wings.  The tail end of the silverfish is tapered and the head is larger.  They have six legs, long antennae and three tail-like appendages on the tips of their abdomens.  Like their name implies, they are silver in color.

If you suspect you have a silverfish infestation and it is more to you than just a nuisance, give Ecotech a call today.  One of our friendly, knowledgeable associates can remove them from your home without harsh chemicals or pesticides, so you can feel comfortable having them removed even with pets and/or children around.

How do I know if I have Carpenter Ants?

 

Carpenter Ant

Carpenter Ant

Carpenter Ants are among the most damaging of all the insects in Minnesota.  In addition to nesting in moist wood, such as a wood pile outside of your home or decaying trees or stumps, they can be found inside buildings from such places as around bathtubs and behind dishwashers to under roofs, in some types of insulation and in attics. 

Carpenter Ants make many satellite nests in addition to the main nest which the queen resides in.  In addition to the satellite nests, the main nest must be exterminated, along with the queen, in order to ensure all Carpenter Ants are gone and will remain gone.  For this reason, it is extremely important to seek professional help from Eco Tech to rid your home of these pests.

If you think you may have a Carpenter Ant problem, call Eco Tech today for a friendly, free consultation.  We will diagnose the problem and begin immediately with our organic product line of treatments.  Eco Tech is your green, clean pest control solution.
