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.

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 Governor’s Mansion in Baton Rouge. Teaming up with the selfless people who clean the lake daily was an experience no one will forget.
