Common Pests in Birmingham, AL

Birmingham is rich with wooded areas and fresh water creeks. Like many cities in the South, it experiences mild winters and hot, humid summers. While the climate is great for outdoor recreation, it’s also the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes, ants, and other pests. Luckily, your local Pest Authority team is here help. Our revolutionary Barrier 360 treatment will create a pest-proof shield around your home. Protect your property from unwanted critters today with Pest Authority of Birmingham.

Ants

As social creatures, ants work in teams to find sources of food. This is why ant infestations seem to happen overnight.  When an ant finds its way into your kitchen, it gets to work leading other members of its colony inside. In Birmingham, ant infestations are most common in the spring, but they can take place year-round. If you see ants in your home, call the experts at Pest Authority. Our Barrier 360 treatment will stop ants in their tracks.

Mice, Rats, & Other Rodents

Have you noticed droppings, scratch marks, or holes in your home? You may have a mouse infestation on your hands. In Birmingham, mice usually make their way indoors during the colder seasons. These nocturnal pests tend to nest in dark, secluded areas like crawlspaces and attics. When mice get into your food supply, they can cause illnesses like salmonella, Hantavirus, and plague. In addition to transmitting disease, mice chew through wiring, insulation, and air ducts, causing severe property damage. If you’re experiencing a mouse infestation, call Pest Authority of Birmingham right away.

Spiders

Although most spiders are harmless, Birmingham is home to a few venomous species, including the black widow and the brown recluse. However, even non-venomous spiders still make for bad house guests. Arachnophobia, or the fear of spiders, is one of the most common phobias in the US. If you’d rather not come across these eight-legged critters, be sure to call Pest Authority of Birmingham. We’ll keep all species of spider far away from your property.

Wasps & Hornets

Stinging insects like hornets and wasps can be a big problem for Birmingham homeowners. During late spring, these pests build their nests in sheltered outdoor areas like patio roofs. In the winter, some colonies make their way indoors to hibernate. Stings from these insects cause itchiness, redness, and swelling at the site of the sting. Hornets and wasps can be dangerous to small children and those with allergies.

DIY Tips for Pest Prevention

Although most pest infestations require professional help, there are a few preventative measures you can take at home. Try out the following steps to keep your home healthy and pest-free.

  • Store garbage in secure, lidded containers
  • Trim trees and shrubs back at least 3 feet away from your home’s exterior
  • Keep doors and windows closed as often as possible
  • Avoiding leaving food scraps around your kitchen and sink
  • Try to keep attics, basements, and similar areas well ventilated and dry
  • Seal all holes and cracks in your home’s interior
  • Store lumber piles at least 20 feet from your home
