Madisonville lies on the west banks of the Tchefuncte River and just north of Lake Pontchartrain, into which the river empties out. As a small river town that contained 857 people in 2020, pests vastly outnumber Madisonville residents. Like most of the Northshore region, Madisonville maintains a high humidity level and temperature year-round. While residents may feel the need to fan themselves, pests thrive in the town’s subtropical climate.
Spiders are especially common in the Madisonville area. These universally-feared arachnids primarily eat insects, which rely on water as sources of nourishment and breeding territory. Since Madisonville is surrounded by water on its eastern and southern fronts, it’s no wonder that spiders come in droves to enjoy insect feasts. Unfortunately, spiders don’t always stay outside; they will come into homes through faulty weatherstripping, cracks in caulk, and windows. For this reason, it’s important for Madisonville homeowners to be mindful of the state of their property and seek pest control help if necessary.
In addition to spiders, ants are a common sight for Madisonville residents. Lake Pontchartrain and the Tchefuncte River are excellent water sources for the ants, too, and Madisonville’s temperatures fall in the right range for ants to survive. The more ants there are, the more likely they are to enter residences in search of food. Because of this, it’s not uncommon for Madisonville homeowners to report pavement ants, odorous house ants, or carpenter ants — the most dangerous ant species for homes — to the Fox Team. If you encounter spiders or ants in your home, call Fox Pest Control for relief.
For Fox Pest Control technicians, Madisonville is much more than just a town they service — it’s an important part of their lives. Some of Fabian Fuenmayor’s earliest childhood memories are from Madisonville. Fabian’s mom grew up cleaning homes around the Northshore region, and Fabian would often go along for the ride! He recalls memories of playing at homes in Madisonville while his mom cleaned. Fabian still goes to Madisonville frequently, but now he’s the one doing the hard work!
Much to Fabian’s enjoyment, and everyone else’s as well, Madisonville is saturated with delicious places to eat. Our technicians are a close-knit team, and whenever they go out to eat, they bring their team members with them! Luckily, it’s easy for our hungry group to venture from services in Bedico Creek, a neighborhood our Fox technicians service frequently, to the restaurants in Madisonville. Josh Hoda, a self-proclaimed foodie, loves grabbing a bite at Orlando’s Seafood. He goes for their amazing homemade salad dressing and fried seafood. When our technician, Josh Haney, goes with him, he gets the shrimp alfredo almost every time. What a way to take advantage of their lunch break!
At Fox, it’s important for us to be involved in the community. In 2021, we joined the Madisonville Chamber of Commerce, an organization that works to improve Madisonville’s economy and quality of life for all its residents. The chamber perfectly exemplifies our core value “Lift Where You Stand.” As members of the Madisonville Chamber, we can support the city that we love so much!
