Susan Fries' New Book Earns Honorable Mention in the 2014 San Francisco Book Festival
Mission Hills, CA
Susan Fries a.k.a The Termite Lady has been around the pest control business for over thirty years. Inspired and motivated by her son who suffered from symptoms of chronic asthma, Sue Fries approached the pest management industry like only a mother would by providing effective non-chemical alternatives. In what might sound like a page out of a sci-fi novel, her company, Ecola Termite and Pest Control Management, utilizes alternative methods like Ecola HEAT (TM), the Electro-Gun and microwave technology to rid her customer's homes of termites and other pesky pests. And, although many national companies successfully use alternative methods for controlling termites, Sue Fries and ECOLA Termite and Pest consider themselves to be The Alternative Methods Specialists. By using a combination of treatment techniques Ecola believes that they can be more effective in controlling termites in most structures with the least amount of chemicals in our environment.
Susan Fries summarizes Ecola's approach in four easy steps: smart choice, simple solutions, problem solved, mother approved. As simple as that customers are provided with a variety of options for controlling their pest issues, in simple terms that anyone can understand, pests are eliminated and customers with children, pets or chemical sensitivities can rest easy knowing that Ecola has utilized the most effective alternative solutions available.
As an accomplished author, Ms. Fries in her new book, Learning to Breathe (http://suefries.com/book/), uncovers her family's heart-felt journey caring for her son who suffered from asthma, a chronic and life-threatening disease. Determined not to become a victim, Sue sought out to learn everything she could about the causes of and the prevention for suspected indoor allergens all associated with asthmatic conditions. Not only does the book provide insight into the causes and prevention of the disease, but it supports other parents with the "wisdom, passion and faith" to save the lives of their own children. As a new author Susan Fries states that she was ecstatic to receive an honorable mention in the 2014 San Francisco Book Festival for Learning to Breathe.
