Typical Ascension Parish Pest Control Problems

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.

Our Connection to Ascension Parish

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.

Fox Pest Control’s Pest Exterminator Service

Pests come in all shapes and sizes. From ants in your kitchen, to termites in your foundation, bug infestations are an inevitable part of homeownership in Baton Rouge. Some bugs are just a nuisance, like silverfish or crickets which like dark damp places. Other pests like termites or rodents are cause for concern as they cause property damage and can carry disease. Whatever the pest problem you might have in Baton Rouge, you came to the right place. Fox Pest Control is experienced at combating whatever Baton Rouge pest might be bothering you.

Signs of a Pest Infestation

You might already know you have a pest problem. But here are a couple of the most common signs a pest control extermination look for in Baton Rouge. 

  • You can see the pest. The most common reason people discover they have a pest problem in Baton Rouge is simply by observing it. It could be a mouse in your house, cockroaches skittering when you turn on the lights, or a swarm of hornets around a nest. In any case, it’s time to get rid of pests!
  • Signs of activity. Pests are adept at hiding from us, so you won’t always spot them. Instead, you might notice signs of their presence such as rodent droppings or small piles of “saw dust”  resulting from termite or carpenter ant activity.

What You Need to Know About Pests

  • Pests come in a large variety. In Baton Rouge, the most common kinds of pests you’ll see around your home include:
  • Pests find their way in through any open, unsealed space. This includes cracks in the wood and gaps in the window or old weather stripping.  It’s important to get help from a professional exterminator because, depending on the species, they may create nests, contaminate food and water in your kitchen and bathroom, or cause damage to the inside of walls, electrical wiring, or other parts of the house.
  • While some pests can cause home damage, many carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans. You must control mosquitoes and rodents as they are the most notorious for this.
  • Spiders and wasps are famous for their venomous bite and painful sting. Extreme cases of spider bites or wasp stings can cause life-threatening reactions and hospitalization.

Helpful Baton Rouge Pest Prevention Tips 

  • Seal cracks to prevent intrusion.
  • Clean baseboards, cabinets, and countertops regularly.
  • Store all food in airtight containers. 
  • Never leave food (including pet food) outside.
  • Clear all debris, tools, garbage.
