As highly social bugs, ant infestations can go from one to 100 in the span of minutes. Leave a crumb out, and your entire house will be flooded by a horde of ants using their finely-honed system to find food and bring it back to the colony.
Ants are one of the most common pests found in Mountain Brook area homes – especially in the spring and summer months. Our Pest Authority Barrier 360 will protect your home against most ant colonies by creating an ant-proof barrier around your home. We also have additional customized treatments for fire ants and carpenter ants.
Common carpet beetles in the Mountain Brook area come in a variety of colors – black, brown, or white – and can have spots or stripes. Usually, they are covered in brown barbed hairs. They can enter your home through an open door or window and are hard to detect until a large infestation has already occurred. While carpet beetles aren’t dangerous, they can eat at your rugs and carpets, causing damage.
Also known as “roly-polies,” these pests are actually crustaceans that roll up into a tight ball when threatened or disturbed. These bugs prefer moist areas and can be found in basements, crawlspaces, the ground floor, and in the soil of houseplants.
While completely harmless, pill bugs can be a nuisance to have in your home. Our Barrier 360 treatment can prevent infestations from ever occurring.
Although most spiders aren’t dangerous, they’re one of the most unwanted pests homeowners find in their home. A full-blown infestation can be terrifying. You can find spiders in dark, dry spaces like attics, crawlspaces, and sheds.
Keep a lookout for brown recluses, hobo spiders, and black widows – these are the most common dangerous spiders in the Mountain Brook area with deadly venom. Our barrier 360 treatment can handle all types of spiders, so your family can stay protected.
A termite infestation can cause great damage to your home. Every year, termites cost billions of dollars in damage to property and personal belongings. They are known to eat wood and cardboard products. While termites are mostly active in the spring and summer months, Mountain Brook’s wet winters can create excess moisture in your crawl spaces, attracting termites to burrow in. By the time warm weather comes around, you could have a full-blown infestation.
Whether you have subterranean, drywood, or dampwood termites, Pest Authority has a treatment plan that works.
There are several different common types of wasps and hornets you may find in the Mountain Brook area: yellow jackets, paper wasps, bald-faced hornets, and more. These insects will make nests on the shaded side of your home, behind shutters, or in any dry wooden surface.
Wasps and hornets look a lot like bees, but don’t mistake them! These pests can be a real danger when they infest your home. When threatened, wasps and hornets will swarm and attack to protect their nests, and they can sting you multiple times. If you have a full-blown infestation, leave it to the professionals to get rid of them.
It can be a homeowner’s nightmare to find a furry creature in your crawl space or attic. Having unwelcomed wildlife invading your home can be a dangerous and unpleasant experience. When cornered or threatened, wild animals can become defensive and aggressive. They can attack and you can get injured trying to remove them from your property. Not to mention, wild animals can be rabid or carry deadly diseases.
Pest Authority handles raccoons, bats, squirrels, opossums, and more. We’ll protect your family and keep wildlife out.
