Eviction of tenant who has roaches

We have had the apartment house sprayed monthly for bugs for the last 2 years.  The exterminator says that they are all coming from one apartment because they are in the electronics and there is no way to get rid of them.  We have another building beside this one and now have no bugs there.  The tenants beside this tenant are complaining.  He pays his rent on time and does't bother anyone except for the bugs.  We are in Alabama.  What are our options?

Give him a 30-day notice to correct for violating the lease.  Your lease does indicate that the tenant must keep the property clean and take care of any infestations, correct?
