Your home should be a refuge not a cause for health concerns or a source embarrassment. When pests take over, it is time to contact a professional Bessemer pest control service to prevent the risk of property damage, diseases and injuries.

Bee and Wasp Control

Approximately a half-inch long, wasps and bees are winged insects that can be brown or black with red and yellow stripes. Their nests can be found inside wall voids, attic spaces and under the overhangs near doors and windows. Containing thousands of insects, a colony can swarm and inflict hundreds of stings. More aggressive than most bees, some wasps can sting multiple times. In addition to pain, redness and inflammation, a bee sting may also cause anaphylactic shock. The colony can chew through wallboard and gain access to your living space if the entrance and exit to an indoor nest is obstructed. In addition to ruining walls, honey can attract other pests, such as cockroaches and rodents.

Bed Bug Control

Bedbugs are reddish-brown, flat, oval-shaped insects that are approximately a quarter-inch long. Able to survive temperatures ranging from zero to over 100 degrees Fahrenheit, they hitch rides inside boxes, luggage and the folds of clothes. Inside your home, they hide during the day in the seams of mattresses and upholstered furniture as well as bed linen and carpets. At night, these nocturnal pests inflict bites that feel like those of mosquitoes. Scratching the bites can lead to a skin infection. It is also possible for bedbugs to transmit staphylococcus, Hepatitis B and other diseases. Along with bites, signs of a bedbug infestation include blood spots on bedding, their shed skin and eggs. The anxiety caused by these pests can prevent you from getting a good night’s sleep. It is essential that you use the right techniques to kill the adults and all their eggs to prevent another infestation.

Ant Control

A constant problem, ants invade homes through tiny cracks in search of food and a welcoming environment. In addition to being a nuisance, ants can contaminate food and inflict painful bites. It only takes one successful scout to leave a scent trail that the rest of the colony can follow. While some ants live outdoors, others like carpenter ants, which are the largest species in Alabama, construct their nests inside walls of homes damaging wood, wallboard and other building materials. While all species of ants have three body segments featuring a small pinched waist, it is essential that the type of ant infesting your property be properly identified, so the most effective treatment plan can be implemented.
