State of the Art Pest Control Equipment
Eco-Friendly Pest Control Products
Today, residential pest management presents both homeowners and pest control operators with many challenging situations. Over my 34+ years of experience, I've learned what works and what doesn't, what's safe and what isn't. I leverage the latest advancements in specialized, Integrated Pest Management (IPM) equipment and eco-friendly products that provide the best level of efffective pest control while providing a healthier in-house environment for you, your family and your pets.
State of the Art IPM Equipment
The Backbone of Effective Pest Control
Three of the most important pieces of pest control equipment that Dura Tech Pest Control uses are:
HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) Filter Vacuum Cleaner by Miele
Micro Injector Low-Dosage Fogging System by Whitmire Micro-Gen
Exacticide Hand Duster by Technicide
HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) Filter Vacuum Cleaner
This HEPA vacuum is, without a doubt, one of the most important tools for safe and effective pest control. In some situations, the HEPA vac allows me to achieve control of pests without the use of toxic agents.
This powerful vacuum, with its sealed canister, is used to remove rodent feces and hairs, dead insects and their skins, spiders, their webs and their eggs, live insects, ant nests, roaches and their egg capsules, bees, wasps and hornets, fleas and ticks, bed bugs from mattresses, overwintering insects in the attic, and for removing and eliminating allergenic airborn insect fragments, arthropod allergens and pathogenic micro-organisms.
The high-quality HEPA filtration system on this vacuum traps harmful bacteria, preventing it from being expelled into the air. The filtration system traps 99.99% of all particles as tiny as 0.3 of a micron. When air enters the vacuum, it is cleaned through a system of several filters and ends up cleaner when it's exhausted than when it entered the vac.
Unlike many other pest control operators, when you hire Dura Tech, you'll know that when your job is cleaned up, it really cleaned up, giving you peace of mind.
The Micro-Injector system is another IPM marvel. This system delivers a fogged Pyrethrin (a botanical substance derived from a flower) in precise, effective amounts into cracks, crevices and wall voids. Oftentimes, it's necessary to get deep into wall voids to knock out an infestation, and the Micro-Injector makes that possible. The machine is a MUST for carpenter ant infestations.
Exacticide Hand Duster
The Exacticide duster is a battery-powered, high-end hand duster with interchangeable, 12-inch tips and extensions that can reach from 6 to 30 feet, making it a great tool for both interior and exterior pest control.
The flexibility of this versatile duster allows for a full range of treatment options, from baseboards, cracks and crevices all the way to outside eaves and overhangs. Interchangeable canisters provide even more versatility because they can be switched back and forth to apply dust formulations as needed.
The Exacticide duster emits very fine particles in metered small and exact dosages. It's invaluable for treating wall voids and otherwise inaccessible cracks and crevices with less toxic and organic dusts that are available and is ideal for fighting bed bug infestations because it can get inside walls, behind electrical outlets, etc.

A Few Words About Pyrethrins
You'll notice that several of the pest control products used by Dura Tech contain pyrethrins, so an explanation seems in order. Pyrethrins, is derived from chrysanthemum flowers. Pyrethrum has been used for thousands of years to kill and control a wide range of pests. It also flushes insects from their hiding places to highlight problem areas.
