Safeguarding Your Northern Alabama Home From Pest Infestations
The health and safety of your family is always your top priority, but pests put both at risk. Avoiding a pest infestation is the best way to protect your family from the dangers common Northern Alabama pests bring, but even if you already have an active infestation, Custom Pest Control can help. We offer residential pest control services to eliminate problem pests and keep your Northern Alabama home pest-free moving forward.
Our Home Pest Control Process
Understanding what pest pressures you’re experiencing before we prescribe treatment is essential in accurately servicing your pest problems. That’s why we perform a thorough inspection to help us develop a pest control plan tailored to your needs.
This inspection begins by creating a diagram of your home and outbuildings. As we go through our inspection protocol, we’ll use the diagram to mark areas of concern, entry points, and active infestations.
Our inspection includes the following:
Inspection of the interior, crawlspaces, and attic areas if accessible.
Use of an electronic termite and bed bug inspection tool that can alert us to even just one bug.
Use of an infrared camera to detect hidden infestations or moisture problems.
Minimum of five moisture readings in the crawl space to detect moisture problems.
A detailed written report of our findings, along with our recommended treatment plan.
On your initial service, your technician will find the weak areas around your home where pests reside. We can control most pests by sealing up entry points and applying products around the perimeter of your home, eliminating problems before they become a pest to you.
Continued Protection Each Season
After you sign on for service, one of our technicians will visit your property and service the outside of the structure each season. Our treatments will vary slightly based on the season to accommodate pest behavior.
During winter, most insects survive by escaping the cold outdoors, taking advantage of the shelter your home provides. During this period, your technician will apply baits, dusts, and other dry formulations, attacking the pests before they make your house their home. Rodent infestations are most common during the winter; luckily, we’ve got that covered as well.
When insect activity starts to ramp up again in the spring, your technician will apply Insect growth regulators to prevent any newborn nymphs from becoming adults. Spring is the only effective time to bait for ants, so we use granule bait during this period to ensure they never get a foothold on your lawn.
Summer is the heaviest activity period for pests across the board. That’s why we bring out everything we have during the summer months to keep pests at bay. Luckily, depending on how long you have had our continued service, the pest population during summer will become less and less with each passing season.
While some pests decline in activity during the fall, others will experience a late hatching season, so we’ll address these issues as necessary. However, our primary mission during fall is to check for and seal any cracks or crevices that could create entry points for pests. We’ll also eliminate any potential nesting areas that pests may have created for the looming winter season. For this reason, insect growth regulators are an important part of this preventative service in the fall.
Unfortunately, pests never really quit, no matter the time of year. The good news is that there is a solution: year-round protection can ensure your home stays pest-free no matter the season. Contact us today and find out why one of our year-round pest management programs is the perfect solution to protect your home from pests!

Your property will receive a comprehensive service to the outside of the structure every 3 months. The products that we use will continue to be effective for 3 to 6 months, killing bugs even when your technician is not there. We get the bugs out and keep them out. If an inside service is needed, then an appointment will be made to complete that service at no additional charge.
