Residential Pest Control
Almost every home in Birmingham, Bessemer, Hoover, and the surrounding areas will see a pest invasion at some point, and many homeowners choose to take preventative measures against seasonal pests, termites, rodents, and other area concerns before they first spot an infestation.
Whatever your needs for your home, we have the solutions that are affordable, powerful, and safe. Our technologically advanced solutions are ideal for this because they are more efficient, meaning our technicians can remove pests more quickly and keep them out for longer. This results in cost savings for our customers.
Residential pest control works for homes of every size. We can also perform pest control and pest prevention for apartments and condominiums, and we can work with HOAs.
Commercial Pest Control
In your Birmingham business, pests are a threat to your revenue. They can lose you customers, damage inventory, and cause penalties and fees for health code violations. To protect your business, you need comprehensive solutions that address pest issues fast as there is no room for mistakes.
Depending on the pest, we have pest control techniques that can scale to fit your business or are designed especially for companies. We work with the following to remove insects, spiders, and wildlife invasions:
- Restaurants, Bars, and Cafes
- Warehouses and Factories
- Municipal Buildings
- Schools and Universities
Since we know that pests can be an immediate risk for many businesses, we operate quickly. This includes after hours, overnight, and emergency service when needed. Our commercial pest control can also be performed discretely if needed so as not to alarm your customers, and is available for both one time and ongoing support.
Seasonal Pest Control
The best way to stop pests is with prevention, which is why most of our clients use us for their ongoing, seasonal pest control services. We come to your property bimonthly or monthly (depending on our risk assessment) and provide highly effective, long lasting solutions all around the exterior and/or interior of your property.
Our seasonal pest control solutions are able to prevent and exterminate most common household pests, including:
Our seasonal services prevent most types of household pests, ensuring that you can live without fear of a pest invasion. If for any reason you see pests continuing to come onto your property, our team will respond right away to see what the problem is and deploy additional approaches.
Every year, termites cause homeowners tens of thousand dollars in damages. They can go after any home or structure in Vestavia Hills, Homewood, and other Birmingham area communities to consume the organic materials, usually wood, and can often feed in secret – causing extensive damage fast.
Spotting termites means it’s time to seek professional treatment now as these wood eating insects eat continuously and have likely already caused substantial damage. But because termites can feed for months – sometimes years – without notice, it’s also important to consider inspections, which can help to prevent future swarms from infesting your home and give you the assurance that your property is safe.
Detecting Termites in Birmingham with Inspections
An integral part of termite control is the inspection. Most termite colonies live inside the wood of a building or under the soil, so it is unlikely you will spot them unless you know what to look for. With a professional termite inspection, we are able to use specialized tools to search a structure for hidden termites, identifying them early even with few outward signs.
We start with a visual inspection, surveying the foundation, interior, attics, basements, and crawl spaces of the property for signs of termites or damage. We can also find out of sight damage with non-invasive tools such as:
- Moisture Meters – Areas of high moisture can indicate the presence of subterranean termites or dampwood termites. A moisture meter detects excessive water that may not be outwardly visible.
- Infrared Thermometers – A termite colony will often be warmer or cooler than its surroundings. IR thermometers can take the temperature behind a wall without needing to access the area directly.
- Blacklight – Flashlights using blacklights can help identify signs of termites that might be otherwise missed.
These inspections can be done if you have reason to suspect termites and will help guide treatment recommendations by revealing where termites have spread in a property and what type is present. As a preventative measure, we perform annual inspections on a regular schedule to detect damage early. Annual inspections are recommended for most property owners in the Southeast, because of the higher risk of extensive invasions compared to the North and West parts of the country.
Termite Extermination and Prevention
If termites are found inside your home or business in Birmingham, we create a treatment plan quickly. We choose a solution that is tailored to the termite species and how extensive the infestation is. Effective treatments are the priority, but we also select those that will be least invasive, never using more than is needed in order to save your costs and inconvenience. Examples of some of our options include:
- Soil Treatments
- Spot Treatments
- Termite Foam
- Wood Treatments
- Heat Treatments
In addition to these methods which will often provide ongoing protection after extermination, we can also apply termite prevention treatments. These work against certain species of termites to reduce the risks of termites coming into your home or business in the next months or years.
Bed Bug Control
Until recently, bed bugs had nearly disappeared in Birmingham after years of successful extermination efforts. This is no longer the case. Today’s bed bugs have built up a resistance to the treatments that were once used against them, and because so many of us travel more, they have also been able to be transferred all throughout the world, spreading and breeding in high numbers.
At Nextgen Pest Solutions, we have incorporated advanced technology into our bed bug control, making it possible to eliminate these resilient pests no matter how big the infestation or what type of property is being treated.
To avoid missing bed bugs that are chemically resistant to treatments, our preferred solutions do not use chemicals. Instead they rely on extreme temperatures to kill bugs on contact, while leaving your property untouched. Options include:
- Cryonite – Ideal for most homes, these treatments (also known as freeze treatments) direct extremely cold CO2 to areas where bed bugs and eggs are hiding. The cold temperatures eliminate them, all without damaging your property.
- Heat Treatments – Another treatment method is the recommended choice for commercial properties like hotels because it exterminates every bug living in the treated space. We use heat fans to raise and hold temperatures in excess of 135 degrees until the bed bugs are eliminated.
We also have K9 bed bug sniffing dogs for difficult to spot infestations, and we have newer and more effective insecticides that provide a cost savings option for properties of all sizes, and can be combined with other treatments.
Removing a bed bug infestation requires exterminating every single pest. Bed bugs only need to mate once in order to lay hundreds of eggs over the course of weeks. Leaving one female bed bug in your home or business enables the infestation to repopulate after treatment. This is why we use these effective treatments, provided by technicians that can find each bed bug with a careful inspection.
With professional mosquito control, we are able to overcome many of the challenges inherent in keeping mosquitoes away from a yard. For instance, over the counter or home remedies for DIY mosquito control often work only for the short term and only in small areas. Many other pest control methods also have only a limited, if any, effect on mosquitoes as the biting pests simply fly past the solutions.
Our mosquito control is thorough, encompassing your entire property so that you are protected from mosquitoes over a large area. Treatment options can include one time applications and ongoing mosquito control that effectively prevents you from bites all throughout the high risk months.
Mosquito Challenges Around Birmingham, AL
For most people, the irritating bites mosquitoes cause is enough to want them out of your yard. When you also consider the risks of a mosquito-borne illness, such as West Nile Virus or Zika Virus, reducing your chance of mosquito bites becomes a safety concern as well. Of the over 60 species of mosquitoes found in Birmingham, these three prevalent species have the most risk of transmitting a virus:
- Asian Tiger Mosquitoes
- Japanese Encephalitis Mosquitoes
- Southern House Mosquitoes
Residential areas like Homewood, Vestavia Hills, and Hoover are especially prone to mosquitoes that take advantage of shady and damp spaces found in yards and nearby nature. During the late spring and summer months, Alabama is in the height of mosquito breeding season and this pest often becomes a significant threat to your comfort and security.
Long Lasting Mosquito Treatments
We control mosquito populations by exterminating every one of them living on your property, including the eggs and larvae that are growing in areas of standing water. The applications we use are:
- Adult Insecticides – We apply these to vegetation and shady areas where mosquitoes rest during the daytime.
- Microbial Insecticides – These treatments decrease the numbers of eggs and larvae in water environments.
- Growth Regulators – Also applied in and around water, these prevent young mosquitoes from growing into adults.
In addition to removing mosquitoes instantly, mosquito control with these treatments will limit the mosquitoes on your property in the following weeks. The products will degrade over time, a process sped up by weather, and will need to be reapplied to continue mosquito control throughout the season.
Mosquito treatment generally begins with up to an acre of your property to remove them in the areas you most often use. If necessary, we can then expand treatment until your yard is satisfactorily protected from mosquitoes.
Mosquito Mist Devices
We also offer the option to install mosquito mist devices, an exciting new technology that makes ongoing mosquito control more convenient and effective. Mist devices regularly spray a repellent into the surrounding air which will then disperse across your yard. By placing these devices at key locations around your property, we create an atmospheric barrier that makes mosquitoes unlikely to enter.
Unlike traditional mosquito control that requires visits throughout the breeding season if you need ongoing prevention, mist devices work year round, needing only the pest control visit for installation. We install these devices for interested homeowners, and can discuss the options, pricing, and availability if you are interested in long term mosquito solutions.
From Moss Rock Preserve in Hoover to Red Mountain Park in Homewood, the area around Birmingham is filled with nature areas where animals thrive. Proximity to these areas, as well as how close you are to more metropolitan areas where urban wildlife like rodents, squirrels, and pigeons thrive, mean you need to have a company to turn to when animals invade.
Types of Wildlife in the Area
Some animals have developed a dependency on people for their food source. Others come into homes to escape inclement weather or predators. Unwanted animals can make their way into a building through cracks that have developed over time or gaps that were part of construction, such as a chimney. Wildlife often found in Birmingham include:
- Snakes and More
The risks of invading wildlife can range from bacteria and the potential for disease to property destruction to an attack from an aggressive or scared animal. Because removing them can be dangerous without training and the correct equipment, you should always call an experienced animal control and wildlife removal company to assist rather than attempting removal yourself.
Our Wildlife Services
Nextgen Pest Solutions uses humane wildlife control methods to protect both your property and the local environment. Part of humane wildlife control is preventing animals from entering a home. We also avoid harming wildlife, and do not use traps that would extend suffering during exterminations. With these humane practices in place, we offer:
- Live Trapping and Removal
- Rodent Extermination
- Deterrent Installation
- Animal Remains Clean Up
We are also one of the only companies to provide emergency wildlife control. No matter the day or time, we can dispatch a member of our emergency team to your home or business 24 hours a day when a risky situation puts you in danger.
