That’s where Pest Authority of Birmingham comes in. We’re here to help local Hoover homeowners keep their properties pest-free. Our revolutionary exterior treatment, Barrier 360, safeguards your home against insects, rodents, and other pests year-round. Take control of your home with Pest Authority today.

Ants

Ant infestations are most common in Hoover, AL during spring and summer. These sophisticated creatures employ high levels of teamwork and organization to find sources of food. If an ant locates stray crumbs in your kitchen, it will leave behind a pheromone trail that leads other members of its colony to your home. This means that, once you find one or two ants, hundreds more are sure to follow. Luckily, Pest Authority’s exclusive Barrier 360 treatment is able to stop these clever critters in their tracks.

Mosquitos

Mosquitos thrive during Hoover’s warm, humid summers and springs. Commonly found in heavily wooded areas and near standing water, mosquitos feed on blood to reproduce. Their itchy, red bites are more than just an annoyance; they can actually cause diseases like zika and the West Nile virus. At Pest Authority, our treatment will remove any current mosquito infestations and prevent new ones from forming.

Rats, Mice & Other Rodents

Rats enter your home in search of food and warmth. These rodents are able to squeeze through vents, wall cracks, and chimneys. Once they’re inside, rats nest in dark, secluded spaces like attics and basements.  If you discover a rat’s nest, do not attempt to get rid of them yourself. Rats are disease carriers and may bite if disturbed. The safest course of action is to call rat removal experts like Pest Authority right away.

Termites

When left unchecked, termites can cause thousands of dollars in property damage. These dreaded pests live in colonies with around 5,000 members. Signs of termite infestation include soft, hollow-sounding, or porous wood, crumbling drywall, and stray insect wings. If you fear you may be suffering a termite infestation, or if you’d like to have your property checked, call Pest Authority of Birmingham today.

DIY Tips for Pest Prevention

While it’s important to reach out to the local experts in cases of serious infestation, there are some measures you can take to stop pests from entering your home. The following steps should help make your Hoover property comfortable and pest-free.
