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

Why do I always find silverfish hiding in my bookshelf?  Why do I move boxes in my basement and find more silverfish even after I have squished several? 

Silverfish will generally eat just about anything, including paper.  This includes wallpaper (and its glue, so your wallpaper could become seriously damaged in spots with a serious infestation), books, leather, paper, fur, and as mentioned in the last installment, cotton, silk and many other kinds of fabrics.  Silverfish are active at night and hide during the day, so if you move a box or a pile of books during the day and find them, they were probably hiding there waiting for nighttime.  A female adult silverfish will generally lay about 3 eggs per day and she lays them in small wall crevices or cracks in the floor, or even under boxes or books.  So even if you squish a few, several more are waiting to take their place.

If you are tired of these pests ruining your day, please call the friendly experts at Ecotech today.  We will get rid of your silverfish problem once and for all, and keep them 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.
