Article: Spring Brings Bloodsuckers in Alabama. Here’s What You Can Do to Fight Back!

alabama professional aps call the sheild After a weird winter that waffled between freezing and strangely warm, spring is finally here. The days have stretched longer, the breeze has picked up, flowers are coming into full bloom—and while this weather feels lovely, our unofficial Alabama state bird is destined to rear its ugly little head now that the temps are going up.

That’s right, folks, the winged jerks better known as mosquitoes are coming in hot. And they’re out for blood.

Mosquitoes are more than pests, though. They’re killers. In fact, it’s estimated that 700,000 people worldwide are killed by mosquitoes each year. Linked to a variety of diseases and known carriers of West Nile and the Zika virus, a bite from a mosquito can often result in a much larger problem than an itchy bump. In Alabama, with right around 60 species flitting about once the weather warms up, we face a particularly daunting threat when it comes to these vampiric creatures.

Mosquitoes thrive in warm temperatures and lay their eggs in standing water. That means those clogged gutters you haven’t quite gotten around to cleaning out and the bird bath with the stagnant water that no bird in its right mind would drink provide perfect birthing suites for female mosquitoes to lay hundreds of eggs. Eggs that hatch in just over a week and lead to an infiltration of even more bloodsuckers to battle.

Fortunately, Alabama Professional Services (APS) has you covered when it comes to both preventing mosquitoes and knocking them out once they appear. As a preemptive strike against the blood-hungry bugs, you can utilize APS’ state-of-the-art Gutter Protection Service as a way to eliminate one of momma mosquito’s favorite places to lay her eggs.

Pre-Emergent Care is a Preemptive Strike Against Weeds and Pests

Pesky pop-ups of unwanted, unsightly growth that choke out your favorite shrubs and flowering plants. Poisonous spiders. A sleep-spoiling cacophony courtesy of crickets. Creepy centipedes. Stomach-turning roaches. They say the best defense is a good offense—and when it comes to combating the threat of weeds and pests, NOW is the time to take action to protect your home from not only the downright unattractive, but also the truly dangerous.

Because weeds compete with grass for sunlight, water, and essential nutrients, they decimate the quality of your lawn as a whole . In little to no time at all, common threats like crabgrass and chickweed spread like wildfire, smothering out the carefully cultivated elements of your yard and the plants you actually intended to be there. By eliminating the threat of a weed invasion when the weeds are still in their seed stages, you can overpower them, essentially nipping them in the bud before they grow too large to manage easily. The same goes for pests commonly occurring in our area—from the lowly cockroach to the menacing brown recluse, when it comes to critters that can certainly ruin your day (or at least scare the wits out of you!), acting against the imminent threat before it appears is the most effective means to maintaining your peace of mind.

The preeminent strike against unwelcome weeds is referred to as a pre-emergent control. When it comes to pre-emergent weed control and stopping pests, timing is everything. First, the proper herbicide and pesticide must be selected based on the threat at hand. Factors like climate, humidity, and soil quality all come into play when determining when to apply the pre-emergent treatment as a proactive punishment to your unwanted guests. However, even the slightest misstep—improper application (using too little or too much) and/or poorly timed implementation—can render your attack useless. Thanks to a knowledgeable team of experts at Alabama Professional Services (APS), you can eliminate wasted time and money while eliminating all of the guesswork.

APS is proud to offer the advantage of possessing extensive, hands-on knowledge and research about different types of weeds and pests.
