Post-Storm Mosquitoes Mean Disease and Discomfort

alabama professional mosquitoes services
Though Birmingham managed to escape Hurricane Irma relatively unscathed, the aftermath of such sudden fluctuation in temperature and humidity has proven ideal for one of our world’s oldest perturbances: mosquitoes.

Post-hurricane conditions like stagnant water on the ground or in gutters can serve as a breeding ground for would-be bloodsuckers. And while a mosquito’s bite itself is both unsightly and itchy, the implications of having one of the winged nuisances latching on to your skin can equal a heightened risk for disease. According to the Alabama Department of Public Health, mosquitoes are still notorious carriers of West Nile virus and the Zika virus…

Keeping the Bloodsuckers Away This Summer!

keeping the bloodsuckers away summer
During this rainy and humid time of year, many of us would simply rather stay inside than spend all summer striving to swat mosquitoes away. The South’s most notorious bloodsucker thrives during the wet, hot summer season—and bites from these winged monsters make our skin welt and itch. Worse still, mosquitoes carry potentially life-threatening diseases like the Zika virus and, quite frankly, they make our kiddos truly miserable. What should be a summer out of school for the kids often ends up being an endless few months spent applying ointment and trying to keep them from scratching their bites—no fun for anyone involved! However, thanks to Alabama Professional Services (APS)—Alabama’s best resource for protecting you and yours from buzzing villains—you can catch a break from the bloodsuckers this summer…

News: Spring Should Be in Your Step, Not Your Hardwood Floors!

If you’ve noticed a soft spot in your floor—as in an area that seems to give when weight is placed upon it—it’s likely that your issue extends much further beyond that bounce. And more than just feeling weird and appearing unsightly, saggy areas on your floor can have unpleasant effects on the items in your home that you hold dear. For instance, that China cabinet with all of your grandmother’s Wedgwood can end up tilting, sliding, and even falling if left unchecked. That means heirlooms (and memories) obliterated—not to mention an unnecessary expense to replace the damaged pieces in time for your next holiday dinner…

Keeping Your Home in Tip-Top Shape During Swarm Season

alabama professional servicesRainy weather followed by warm, humid temps—sound familiar? In Alabama, it’s a near-constant state of being, especially during this time of year. Aside from the muggy air permeating your lungs and making you feel generally uncomfortable, this Deep South state of being is synonymous with termite swarm season.

Swarm season occurs in full force when a colony of termites reaches a certain size during humid months like March, April, May, and June. However, swarms can occur during unseasonably warm, wet months—making Alabama a prime candidate for early infestations. Swarmers found outdoors near tree stumps and railroad ties are not necessarily an indication that your house is infested, but they can mean that if the pests are close by, it’s only a matter of time before their feeding frenzy makes its way to your home. If you have found swarmers indoors, you have likely become the victim of a termite infestation.

In Birmingham, Alabama, termites cause more structural damage each year than floods, storms, and fires combined… Read Entire Article
