Typical Baton Rouge Pest Control Problems

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.

Teaming up with the selfless people who clean the lake daily was an experience no one will forget.

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.
