Lying on the Northern Bank of Lake Pontchartrain, Lacombe has a small-town feel and plenty of marshland to explore. The Southeast Louisiana Wildlife Refuges and Boy Scout Trail are representative of the beautiful, rich landscape Lacombe offers its wildlife and human residents. Even further south, the Lacombe Bayou leads outdoor enthusiasts into waters filled with alligators, fish, and recreational wonders. But wait. Humans aren’t the only species attracted to Lacombe’s land and waterways; pests of all kinds live there, too.
Both cockroaches and rodents are prevalent in Lacombe. Once the greasy, water-loving insects known as cockroaches lay their eggs, they are extremely difficult to get rid of. Especially common in bathrooms and kitchens, cockroaches search for anything from sweets to other dead insects on the floor. Fox’s data shows Lacombe residents report the most cockroach issues in September. Unfortunately, that’s also when rodents come inside to play. Just like roaches, rodents like mice and rats are drawn to food inside the home. However, they usually cause more damage to structures by chewing through insulation, wood, and whatever else they can get their claws on. Although cockroaches and rodents pose large problems to homeowners, there is one pest that causes significantly more damage.
Termites are arguably the most dangerous pest in Lacombe. Lacombe’s warm and humid nature invites termites to swarm the area — and the homes that exist there. Though termites rarely bite humans, they are extremely damaging to wooden structures like houses, causing over $5 billion dollars in damage annually. Termites can chew their way through structures anytime of year, even if they aren’t visible. If you live in Lacombe and notice discarded wings, bubbling paint, and tunneled-through wood, you may have a serious termite infestation. If you suspect termites, cockroaches, or rodents are invading your home, call Fox Pest Control today.
The small town of Lacombe may not have many people, but it has provided our Fox technicians with priceless memories. Fabian Fuenmayor grew up in Slidell and worked at Saint Tammany Parish Animal Services in Lacombe, just a 20-minute drive from his house. A huge animal lover, Fabian treasures his time at the shelter. He even bought one of his dogs, Bitty, there. Bitty is a beautiful chihuahua – dachshund mix, and he wouldn’t have met him had he not worked for Saint Tammany Parish Animal Services! However, Bitty is not the only companion Fabian met in Lacombe. He also met a human one: his girlfriend of a year-and-a-half! Given this history, Lacombe is a very special place to Fabian.
Chris Hoda, another member of our Fox Team, also has special ties to Lacombe. Chris, his wife, and their two teenage daughters have taken family trips to the Big Branch Marsh National Wildlife Refuge in Lacombe, where they’ve hiked and viewed all the interesting wildlife. One of Chris’s daughters almost stepped on a water moccasin after wading through the water while they were out and about once! Aside from the scares, Chris’s family has a wonderful time outdoors, even going kayaking at the Bayou Lacombe.
