The technician needs to properly prepare for the treatment.
Regular Pest control (non-Organic)
Advances in Pesticide Technology– Pest Management products are much safer than those used in the past due to advances in newer and safer pesticides. Some of the pesticides we use are also used in commercial farming to protect crops from pests.
Licensed and Certified Techs– All of our technicians are licensed and certified by the state of Alaska. This will insure that our pest management services are applied in the safest and most effective manner.
No Staining– Unlike some store-bought products none of the commercial pest management products we use will stain your home.
Pest control service should be affordable. Of course, If customers have an infestation that requires extra time, planning and material it will cost more than if you prevent the problem insect/rodent problem.
Cheaper– If customers are flexible with their schedule, we can match them up with another customer near them to be included in a group rate. This will guarantee a cheaper rate for their pest control service.
The Interior is included– We do not charge extra to treat the interior of customers home. Pest infestations will be exterminated before they reach the interior of customers home when the outside is exterminated.

Spring and Summer Pests include but are not limited to: “mice, shrews, squirrels, mosquitos, wasps, hornets, yellow jackets, bees, spiders, ants, spruce beetles, aphids, flies, bed bugs, black beetles, bed bugs, cockroaches, etc.”
*Each pest control application lasts between 60-90 days

Is the Quarterly Plan for you?
Quarterly Pest Service plan (each extermination lasts 60-90 days)
for those who have:
- Rodents that try to find warmth in customers garage or kitchen whether it be a home or restaurant.
- Bed bugs find cracks and crevices in the seams of mattresses, electronic devices and anywhere they can find warmth throughout the year.

Why doesn’t one treatment work?
It is simple to exterminate adult insects, but penetrating eggs is near to impossible. Insect eggs are the hardest stage to exterminate due to their protective shell. Once insect eggs hatch, customers will have the same problem as they had before we treated.
Spruce Beetle Extermination
Spruce Beetle Treatment
Whether you want spruce beetle treatment or tree pest control, Eco Pros is your local tree service. Our spruce beetle treatment will exterminate and prevent spruce beetle damage. Unfortunately, Alaska has been experiencing a spruce beetle epidemic that started in 2016 destroying over 900,000 spruce trees.
Spruce beetles can be detrimental to your spruce trees. These days to buy a spruce tree you will be paying $500-$1500 for a single tree in Alaska. Spruce trees are not only beautiful, but they help break the strong winter winds and provide privacy for Alaskans.
We protect your spruce trees with tree pest control.
are my trees spruce trees?
If your trees look like Christmas trees you most likely have spruce trees.
Look at the needles of your spruce tree. If they are individually attached to the branches and have four sides to them, most likely it is a spruce tree. If the needles are attached to the branches in a clustered manner, you most likely have a pine tree. Tree pest control will not only protect your trees from spruce beetles but aphids as well.
What do spruce beetles look like?
Spruce beetles are reddish-brown or black insects usually about a ¼ inch in length. Sometimes, legless larvae can be found on the bark of your spruce tree. Spruce beetle pest control will stop any furthur spruce beetle damage.
What spruce trees will spruce beetles attack?
Although spruce bark beetles are more attracted to spruce trees with a diameter of 8 inches or greater, they are known to attack spruce trees with a diameter as small as 4 inches. You only need to get a spruce beetle treatment once a year.
Signs of spruce beetle damage
- Saw dust at the base of the tree
- Sap coming from bark (trees natural defense against spruce beetles)
- Small circular holes in the bark where spruce beetles have burrowed into.
*After your tree pest control treatment your trees will start to heal itself
Spruce Beetle Season
Spruce Beetle season is also known as “Flight Season” in Alaska. Flight Season is when spruce beetles emerge from surrounding spruce trees to find new spruce trees to feed on and lay their eggs. Spruce beetles flight season starts in May and goes until July. Spruce beetle pest control will stop spruce beetles before they burrow into your spruce trees.
When should I treat my spruce trees?
The best time for us to apply tree pest control for spruce beetles is between April-August. The earlier we exterminate spruce beetles the less damage they will cause to spruce trees. The best way to fight against spruce beetles is prevention. Applying pest control to your spruce trees before spruce beetles infest your trees is the best way to insure their health.
Power Spray-This is the most effective spruce beetle treatment and the only scientific way of treating for spruce beetles. We use a truck mount sprayer to apply a protective coat to spruce trees that will last 12 months.
Liquid injection– For this type of tree service we inject a solution to the roots of the spruce tree. The spruce tree takes up the pest control through its root system and transport it throughout the tree killing any spruce beetle infestations. Those who want to be a little more ecofriendly will choose this option.
Spruce tree Pest control is cheaper
Unlike regular pest control (2 to 4 treatments a year), spruce beetles only need to be treated once a year.
Cost of service: 2 options
- Urgent same day– $197 for the initial spruce tree then any subsequent tree after that will be 30$ a tree.
- Economical– If you are flexible, our scheduler can match you with a home in your area then the price is 25$ a tree with no extra charge for the initial tree.
What can I do?
Things you can do after we treat to increase the odds of your trees surviving is proper watering and fertilizing so that the tree can properly heal itself.
Things you can do:
- Fertilize your tree
- Proper watering
Bee Removal includes- Bees, Wasps, Yellow Jackets, Hornets, etc.
Wasp/Bee Removal Service or Traps?
Traps are not a very effective method when it comes Bee Removal and Wasp Removal. You may catch a couple bees or wasps, but you will still have a problem. You must find their nest.
Most wasp, yellow jacket, or bee nests are home to 10-300 stinging insects not including their eggs. Our bee removal service along with our wasp removal service comes with a 100% guarantee to solve your pest problem.
Where are these wasps/bees coming from?
If you are looking for a pest control company then you most likely have a wasp/bee nest somewhere.
Wasp/Bee nests can be found within the walls of your home, attics, under eaves and porches, nearby trees, etc. We have bee removal tools and wasp removal products to exterminate them no matter where they are. We have not run into a wasp/bee problem that we could not fix.
Two Options– Organic or Chemical Mosquito/Fly Control
Organic Mosquito/Fly Control
We offer a garlic based organic mosquito control service. Since organic products do not last as long as chemical based pest control, we offer a monthly mosquito treatment during the Spring and Summer. Mosquito control is not needed in the Fall and Winter.
Non-organic mosquito/fly control (cheaper and more effective)
Chemical based mosquito pest control last longer and is more effective than organic mosquito control. Thanks to advances in pest control technology, our commercial mosquito control products are a lot safer than products used in the past. Most mosquito control companies in Alaska offer a 5-treatment plan per year place during the warmer seasons.
We offer a 2-mosquito treatment plan per year (1 mosquito treatment in the Summer and 1 mosquito treatment in the Spring with free treatments in between) with free mosquito treatments in between if needed.
Is it safe?
Professional technicians know how to prepare and apply mosquito pest control in the safest manner as possible. Pest control technology have made mosquito pest control a lot safer.
What can I do?
Mosquitoes lay eggs in water. They only need a soda cap size of standing water to create an infestation. For better Mosquito control be sure to follow these steps to keep your mosquito population reduced:
- Dump out all containers or anything outside that can hold water
- Trim shrubbery and trees around your home
- Fill in any mud puddles so that there is no standing water
Rodents can carry diseases and viruses harmful to humans. Rodent removal will give you peace of mind. Here is a list of viruses and other diseases they can transmit directly to humans:
- Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome
- Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome
- Lassa Fever
- Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM)
- Omsk Hemorrhagic Fever
- Rat-Bite Fever
- South American Arenaviruses (Argentine hemorrhagic fever, Bolivian hemorrhagic fever, Sabiá-associated hemorrhagic fever, Venezuelan hemorrhagic fever)
How mice get into your home?
Our professional rodent exterminators know the habits and hiding places of rodents. People can have mice in their garage or kitchen and not know it. Mice are looking for warmth and food.
Garages are easily accessible for mice. Mice are excellent at hiding and traveling within your home. If they can fit their head into a crack or crevice, they can squeeze their bodies in.
Whether you want mouse control, rat control or shrew control your Eco Pros rodent exterminator will formulate a plan to remove all rodents from your home. We will treat your home according to our professional rodent removal experience.
How we treat them
Rodent Control Trapping– We have different types of rodent baits traps depending on the type of pest.
Rodent Control Baits– Sometimes mice will go for protein-based baits, and other times they will go for sugar-based baits.
Blocking Entry Points– We will use rodent proof material that will stop them from entering your home.
Your rodent exterminator can identify the rodents by viewing their droppings.
*Rodent control bait boxes only need to be refilled once a year. We also trap and recover any mice at no extra cost.
What can I do?

Cockroach Pest Control
Are cockroaches dangerous?
Cockroach Pest Control will stop infestations. Cockroaches are expert food finders. Whether food is in cabinets or trash bins, they will find it.
When roaches eat or walk over spoiled food, they can track salmonella and E. coli to your kitchen counters, cabinets, and food. Cockroach control will keep your home clean and safe.
Cockroaches reproduce extremely fast. The sooner you get cockroach control the better chance of exterminating the whole cockroach population.
It only takes a couple of roaches to create a full infestation. Therefore, it is important to continue cockroach control to stop any future infestations.
Cockroaches are extremely difficult to treat and require multiple treatments.
Restaurants and Commercial Properties– Commercial units require a monthly cockroach service.
Residential: Quarterly or Biannual cockroach pest control service is required.
A single female cockroach can produce 200-300 new offspring in their lifetime. Cockroaches are a year-round problem. They do not die off when it gets cold like many other bugs. Cockroaches will find their way into your home and become a year-round problem. We will come back for free, in between services, if cockroach problems persist.
How the first treatments work:
- The first treatment is to exterminate the adult roaches.
- The second treatment must be 10-14 days later to exterminate the offspring of the cockroaches.
What can I do?
“Important” – It is crucial that you deep clean your kitchen or garage. Leftover grease on stoves, crumbs, and leftover food will attract a multitude of roaches.
If they find food, they will communicate to other roaches that there is food in the area and now your infestation is worse.
Signs of Ants
- Wood shavings near areas where you suspect carpenter ants
- Galleries in wood
- Faint chewing noises
*Ants live in groups called colonies. If you see one ant there most likely is a nest somewhere close by.
Where are they coming from?
Ants send out scout ants to find food and water. Once these scouts find a food source, they will leave a pheromone trail from the food source back to their colony.
What are ants attracted to?
How to prevent ants
2 ant exterminations a year
Attention: Our ant extermination which is once in the Spring and once in the Summer will prevent carpenter ants from causing any damage to your home.

Bed Bug Control
Our bed bug extermination service can be a start to a new life for you. It only takes one bed bug to create an entire infestation in your home. One female bed bug can lay up to 250 eggs in her lifetime.
