Did you know...?
Many believe that the Daddy Long Legs spider has the world's most potent venom. This is a myth, however, because no studies have been done on the potency of its venom. Why? Because the Daddy Long Legs is incapable of biting humans! What's more, it's not even technically a spider. Instead, the Daddy Long Legs is a spider-relative called the "Harvestman", and it gathers food by scavenging.

We have been providing dependable residential and commercial pest control services in Birmingham, Mountain Brook, Homewood, Vestavia Hills, Bessemer, Clanton, Centerpoint, and Cullman areas for over 50 years. To prevent bugs, mice, and other pests from entering your home or business, there are some preventive measures you can take.
Most insects thrive in dark, damp locations. Make sure to clean these areas regularly and make note of any signs of bugs. Termites love moisture and wood. Keep mulch, firewood, and other wooden structures away from your property and divert sprinkler and lawn irrigation systems away from your foundation.
Spiders thrive near rotting materials including cardboard and old cloth. Spider prevention includes keeping basements and dark areas clean and organized. Cleaning not only keeps spiders in control, it can also help prevent ants and roaches. Make sure food containers are sealed and dirty dishes are promptly washed. Other measures include caulking any seals around windows and doors.
Making sure pets are in good health not only keeps your furry friends comfortable, but also keeps your home free of fleas and ticks. Regularly give your animals baths and use over-the-counter or prescription flea prevention.
When preventive measures are not enough to keep bugs at bay, you may need an exterminator to handle the job. Contact American Pest Control in Birmingham to get a free estimate for a solution to your bug infestation.
Available food and shelter will dictate where and how long pests stay around.
