Minnesota Bed Bug Infestation, Part III

Think you might have bed bugs?  See below for additional answers to your questions.

Bed bugs look similar to wood ticks.  They are small (about 1/16 to 1/4 inch long), brown or tan and oval-shaped.  They do not have wings.  After feeding, the bed bug will change from brown in color to purplish red, much like a wood tick, and the average life span of a bed bug is just short of a year, or about eleven months.  Bed bugs mostly hide in rooms where people sleep.  They can be found under the box spring of your bed, in and around a mattress and in and around a bed frame.

If you have noticed red, itchy bites which often occur in rows on your body and/or red stains on your sheets and/or bed, it’s time to call Eco Tech for a free consultation.  We will do a full inspection to diagnose the problem and start immediately with our organic treatment of the infestation.  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.

Minnesota Bed Bug Infestation, Part II

Bed Bug

You may remember that old saying, “Don’t let the bed bugs bite!”  We were always taught that bed bugs don’t really exist any more and not to be scared of them.  Well, they are back.  Due to a resurgence of bed bugs in the United States, infestations have become an issue in recent years.

While bed bugs are known to carry several diseases, research has shown they do not transmit any to humans.  Bed bugs do not care how clean or dirty the home they infest is; they are just looking for food.  Bed bugs feed on human blood, much as a wood tick does.  They are nocturnal creatures, and very shy.  They normally venture out of, say, a bed when they do not detect any movement.  This is why most people bitten by bed bugs have been bitten at night while sleeping.  Bed bugs travel to your home on your clothing and in your bags after visiting a hotel or another family’s home with an infestation.  They are at five-star hotels and $10.00-a-night places; they have moved in, and they travel fast.

If you think you may have a bed bug problem, call Eco Tech today.  We offer 24/7 emergency service and serve the entire Twin Cities Metro Area. Just call us at 763-785-1414 for more information.  With our free consultation, we will diagnose the problem immediately and begin our organic treatment of the infestation.  Eco Tech, your “green, clean pest control solution”.

Bed Bugs

Minnesota Bed Bug Infestation, Part I

Minnesota and all of North America has seen a revival in bed bug infestations over the last decade.  Bed bugs were non-existent in North America for several decades.  Due to more frequent travel to parts of the world where they still thrive and poisons and pesticides which specifically target other household pests, the bed bug has made a comeback in North America, including here in Minnesota.

At Eco Tech, we offer a free consultation to diagnose your infestation problem and offer 24/7 emergency service throughout the Twin Cities Metro Area.  We can begin immediately with our organic treatment of the infestation.  For green, clean pest control, call Eco Tech today.

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.

Beetles in Minnesota

Asian Lady Beetles, Part III – Problems Occurring From Infestation

The Asian Lady Beetle has become a nuisance on Minnesota for many reasons.  Their large numbers, especially in the fall, can lead them into our homes.    

The Asian Lady Beetle is not known to carry any diseases.  However, while searching for food, they can inadvertently bite hard enough to break human skin, causing discomfort.  While the beetles do not sting, it can be very uncomfortable to be enjoying the outdoors and run into a swarm of these beetles and be bitten several times.

This beetle also secretes a strong-smelling liquid from their legs.  This liquid not only smells badly, but can also stain surfaces, such as clothing or outdoor furniture.  If the pests enter your home, staining can occur on your furniture, towels, carpet or clothing as well.

Yet another issue occurring as a result of an Asian Lady Beetle infestation is the diet of these beetles.  Since the Asian Lady Beetle feeds on aphids and other lady beetle varieties which can be beneficial to the ecosystem naturally occurring in your yard, the natural balance can be put off-kilter if you have a significant number of these beetles.

If you suspect you have an Asian Lady Beetle infestation, call the friendly experts at Eco Tech today for a free consultation.  Our green approach to pest control through our line of earth-friendly organic products is the best solution for your family’s pest control needs.  Call today for a free consultation!
