Ants are a constant in Ascension Parish throughout the year. The rich soil combined with the humidity allows many ant species to thrive. Odorous house ants and pavement ants are two common species that invade houses. However, the main species to watch for are carpenter ants and red imported fire ants.
Carpenter ants don’t eat wood, but they use their strong jaws to carve tunnels and galleries throughout wooden structures, including homes. These pesky ants can cause thousands of dollars of home damage if left unchecked. Fire ants, on the other hand, are most notorious for their highly aggressive nature and painful stings, which can result in allergic reactions. Fire ants can become especially dangerous if they come inside the home through tiny gaps and cracks in order to find food or water.
Ascension Parish is located near swampy areas such as Lake Maurepas and Lake Pontchartrain, as well as part of the Mississippi River, and is impacted by the warm climate of the Gulf of Mexico. All this water makes Ascension Parish summers perfect for mosquitoes. Active mostly in the morning and at dusk, mosquitoes usually leave a raised welt after they bite, but they can also carry diseases like Zika virus, chikungunya, malaria, and West Nile virus.
If odorous house ants, pavement ants, carpenter ants, or mosquitoes are invading your property, call Fox Pest Control immediately. We will send our technicians to service your home.
Here at Fox Pest Control, we strive to be a part of the communities we live and work in. We are proud members of the Ascension Chamber of Commerce. Our team has connections here too. Fox Pest Control team member Brogan Searle and his wife Janel love taking their children to Jambalaya Park. The park covers about a quarter of the city block which means there is always something for the kids to explore. Sometimes there’s even enough time for them to visit the Kidz Kove Discovery Park and let the children frolic while Brogan and his wife talk and enjoy the kids’ fun. The kids especially love the sand digger, the two-seater seesaw, and the adventure tower where they can climb everywhere they want, unlike at home.
On the way home from the Kidz Park, the water park, or the dog park, Brogan and Janel often take the time to visit the Gonzales Veteran’s Memorial Park to honor the sacrifices made there. The park is very peaceful, and there’s a feeling of reverence for those who gave their lives for our freedom.
