Fox Pest Control.
No bugs. Simply better.
Fox provides affordable pest control in Baton Rouge for insects and rodents, including:
Rich, fertile soil is good for plantation areas such as the Poplar Grove Plantation, the Magnolia Mound Plantation, and the Mount Hope Plantation; however, it is also excellent for ants. The winters in these areas may keep them at bay for a couple of months, but the ants are likely to return in full force as the weather warms, sometimes as early as March.
There are many kinds of ants common to Baton Rouge, including pavement ants, odorous house ants, carpenter ants, and fire ants. Although they don’t eat wood, carpenter ants use their powerful jaws to carve galleries and tunnels through practically any kind of wooden structure, especially wet or damaged wood.
Fire ants are infamous for their painful sting and for being highly aggressive. Fire ants can cause serious problems if they find their way inside.
Because of its rich soil and extreme humidity, Baton Rouge is also highly susceptible to cockroaches.
Species like the American and German cockroaches are especially prevalent. These hardy critters don’t mind traveling in the filthiest areas to find food, which allows them to spread diseases like salmonella. Because they are scavengers, they can survive on the smallest food crumbs or even dandruff.
There are a variety of pests that commonly plague homeowners in Baton Rouge. Some of the other most common pests include:
Bed Bugs: Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on blood, usually at night. They are often found in mattresses and bedding, which is how they get their name. Bed bugs can be difficult to get rid of, and their bites can be itchy and painful.
Earwig: Earwigs are scavengers that feed on decaying matter such as leaves and dead insects. They are often found in gardens, where they can do significant damage to plants. Earwigs can be a nuisance, but they are not considered to be dangerous.
Mosquito: Mosquitoes are small, flying insects that are known for their itchy and painful bites. They are also vectors for a variety of diseases, including West Nile virus and Zika virus. In Baton Rouge, mosquitoes are most active during the summer months.
Fleas: Fleas are small, wingless insects that are often found on pets such as dogs and cats. They feed on the blood of their host, and can cause a variety of problems, including skin irritation and tapeworms.
Wasps: Wasps are insects that are related to bees. They are often found in gardens and near garbage cans in order to scavenge for food. Wasps can be aggressive, and their stings can be painful and potentially dangerous for people who are allergic.
Spiders: Spiders are eight-legged creatures that can be found in a variety of habitats. While most spiders are harmless, some, such as the black widow spider, can be dangerous. Spiders typically only bite humans if they feel threatened.
These are some of the most common pests in Baton Rouge, Walker, Gonzales, and Prairieville. If you are dealing with any type of pest, call Fox Pest Control today at (225) 228-4757 or email us.

In addition, we are proud members of the West Baton Rouge Chamber of Commerce, which helps to promote economic growth and business health across the city.
Fox technicians give back to the community as much as possible. This past summer, technicians partnered up with Keep Baton Rouge Beautiful for Fox’s Green Glove Project. They all spent a few hours cleaning up the aftermath of Hurricane Laura by the lake at the Governor’s Mansion in Baton Rouge.
Teaming up with the selfless people who clean the lake daily was an experience no one will forget.
There are many pests that are nearly impossible to eliminate without the help of a professional exterminator. Termites, ants, ticks, fleas, carpenter ants, and bed bugs are all among the pests that are extremely difficult and time-consuming to root out of a home without the proper extermination knowledge, equipment, and experience.
Extermination professionals have the proper training and certification to get rid of pests that spread diseases, cause home damage, and cause emotional distress, including mosquitoes, ticks, termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, and bed bugs.
Most Baton Rouge pest problems cannot be thoroughly controlled without years of pest control experience. The products available for purchase at your local hardware store just aren’t as effective as our integrated pest management techniques that safely use professional products and also take pest behavior into account.
Responsible companies like Fox Pest Control use products that are proven to get rid of pests while also being environmentally responsible.
Pesticides that are reviewed and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are not illegal as long as they are used according to the label instructions.
Our environmentally friendly products are uniquely designed to get rid of the pests while also allowing you to enjoy the comfort and safety of your home. Our products are designed to be child and pet friendly.
We combine modern Integrated Pest Management (IPM) techniques with a variety of environmentally responsible products. Since each situation — and each pest — is different, we make adjustments accordingly. Speak to our customer service representatives (contact us here) for a list of products used during your service call.
For up to three months after the application, any bugs, insects, or other pests that come across the area will be exterminated. You can rest easy knowing we are controlling the bugs so you can focus on what matters most to you.
During your first service for our standard Home Protection Plan (HPP), we treat the inside of your home to help root out any pests inside. We won’t need to treat the inside of your home again unless you specifically request an inside service.
Yes. Each Home Protection Plan (HPP) comes with our Fox Money-Back Guarantee. Call our customer service representatives at (225) 228-4757 to let us know if pests come back between your regular services, and we will come back to treat the pests again, free of charge.
For the standard Home Protection Plan, we plan to service the outside of your Baton Rouge home on a seasonal basis (roughly once every three months).
As long as our technicians have full access to your front and back yard, no one needs to be at home if we are doing a standard pest control treatment of the home’s exterior. However, if you specifically request a treatment of the interior of your home, an adult must be present before our technician can enter.
Now is the best time to consider hiring Fox Pest Control to exterminate pests, because it’s not a question of if, but when the pests will invade the wall voids, the space inside soffits or eaves, gutters, cracks in the siding, and eventually make their way to the house.
Professional Baton Rouge pest control services can save both time and money. Since do-it-yourself methods aren’t effective over the long term, a homeowner can spend endless amounts of time using ineffective methods. Pests like termites and carpenter ants can cause hundreds of thousands of dollars in home repair costs that are not covered by insurance.
As long as the home has food, water, and shelter, pests are just as attracted to a clean home as they are to a dirty one. When insects have infested a house, cleaning and thorough sanitation techniques root them out of their hiding places and destroy their eggs. However, cleaning inside doesn’t necessarily stop the bugs on the outside thinking about wanting to come in. That’s where Fox Pest Control can really help.
Rodents, mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can spread nasty diseases including West Nile virus, babesiosis, rickettsiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Rocky Mountain Fever, Typhus, the bubonic plague, Tularemia, Malaria, and much more.
All our products are formulated and proven by the EPA to be the environmentally responsible choice for effective pest control.
Fox offers organic exterminator treatment products upon customer request. Please speak with our customer service representatives for further details.
There are several pests that are difficult to exterminate and control without professional help because they hide effectively, reproduce quickly, and are extremely hardy. Cockroaches, bed bugs, fleas, ticks, and termites are among the most difficult pests to eradicate.
Many insects find a warm place to hide, such as the wall voids of your house. They go into a type of hibernation called diapause until spring.
Other insects lay eggs that survive the winter and hatch when the weather warms.
Pests survive the winter by finding a hiding place in your house or by laying eggs that withstand the cold.
At any time during the cold months, the area could suddenly warm up, which will activate the pests. Our winter treatments will catch and exterminate these pests before they can become a problem again in the spring.
Mice and rat problems reach their peak during the coldest months of the year, which is another reason to treat your Baton Rouge home during the winter. Rats and mice can sometimes bring other pests to your home, even during the winter, including ticks and fleas.
