Common Pests in Mountain Brook, AL
More on pests in your area
Spiders, ants, and ticks thrive in the temperate climate of Mountain Brook, AL. While most spiders are unnerving but essentially harmless, venomous species such as black widow and brown recluse spiders are dangerous. These pests normally hide outside in dark, protected areas, but they will occasionally invade homes in response to changing environmental conditions and put the wellbeing of residents at risk. Bites from either black widow or brown recluse spiders can result in severe pain and difficulty breathing, or even cause necrosis of the skin around the bite and require professional medical assistance.
Red imported fire ants congregate in Mountain Brook yards, building large mounds that make mowing the lawn challenging. If residents disturb these nests, the pests will swarm, bite and sting multiple times. Fire ant injuries typically result in pain and swelling. Finally, American dog and blacklegged ticks are common in the area. The pests prefer to inhabit woods, plus areas of scrub vegetation and shaded grassy areas in yards. These ticks carry diseases like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
