Mobile, AL Pest Control -
Here in Mobile, you'll likely need professional residential pest control services. It can be really hard to keep your home free of pests, but the costs of not doing so can be a lot steeper than professional pest control. You could be at risk for everything from roach-borne diseases to thousands of dollars in termite damages. Our residential pest control plans aim to prevent all that.
Our pest control plans start with a thorough home pest inspection that allows us to identify existing problems and conducive conditions that could lead to future issues. Next, we create a pest plan tailored to your needs. This plan doesn't just focus on getting rid of existing problems but also on preventing potential new ones. What's more, we don't just execute the plan on a one-time basis. We'll come back on a regular basis to ensure your home remains pest-free long after our initial treatment.

Mobile's Step-By-Step Guide To Cockroach Prevention
Keeping cockroaches away is one of the hardest pest control problems to solve. Roaches are highly motivated to get into your house, and once they're in, they're almost impossible to eradicate – especially with the kinds of ineffective DIY cockroach control products you can get over the counter. Prevention is the best way to deal with a cockroach infestation. Fortunately, there's a lot you can do to deter these pests, including:
- Cover all indoor and outdoor garbage cans with tight-fitting lids.
- Store all foods in the fridge or airtight pantry containers to mask smells.
- Fix moisture problems like leaky pipes and drainage issues.
- Seal cracks and holes in your home's exterior to make it harder for roaches to enter.
- Declutter around your home to reduce cockroach hiding spots.
- Ensure you're always cleaning up after meals – including pet meals – right away.
Taking these measures can help you avoid winding up with a cockroach infestation in the first place. Then you don't have to worry about trying to eradicate it after the fact!
The Secret To Keeping Spiders Out Of Your Mobile Home
Most of the spiders here in Alabama are not dangerous to humans. Of course, all spiders are venomous, but only two types pack a venom potent enough to be medically significant. Those are the black widow and the brown recluse. The black widow's bite can cause systemic symptoms like nausea and muscle spasms. Meanwhile, the brown recluse's bite can cause the flesh around the site of the bite to die and decay – a process called necrosis.
Though your chances of running into these spider types are low compared to your chances of running into other, less dangerous spiders, keeping all spiders out of your home is the only way to protect yourself from brown recluses and black widows. Fortunately, the best way to do this is to keep spider prey away from your home.
Unless you have another underlying pest issue in your home, you don't have anything in your house that spiders want since they only enter homes in search of prey. So if you take the measures we discussed above to prevent cockroaches, those measures will go a long way to preventing other kinds of spider prey, as well as spiders themselves.
If you see an uptick in spider activity in your home or business, there's a good chance you have an infestation of something else as well. Don't hesitate to give EnviroGuard a call or visit our contact page to get rid of your infestation today!
