Protecting your investment while providing a pest control program that suits your needs.

If you suffer from allergies and/or asthma attacks, you know to avoid common allergens like ragweed, grass pollen, and even household dust. However, there’s another allergen that may be making it hard for you to breathe, one that you may not even know about: cockroaches.

No one likes roaches, but did you know that they can seriously affect your allergy symptoms? When you think of allergens that exacerbate your asthma or your hay fever during allergy season, you probably don’t think about roaches, but you really should.

You may be thinking, “But I avoid cockroaches like the plague. I shouldn’t have anything to worry about…” Well, no one in their right mind will willingly seek out and make physical contact with cockroaches, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t a problem for people who suffer from allergies and/or asthma.

Airborne Toxic Cockroach Particles

When particles of dust, pollen, and other allergens are breathed in, the immune system reacts to them based on their shape, size, and chemical makeup. That’s why some people are more sensitive to these airborne allergens than others, and it explains how cockroaches can affect your allergies. (more…)

When it comes to crops and pests, we usually think of the six-legged variety. Most pesticides (both chemical and organic) are made with insects and plant-killing bacteria in mind. However, these aren’t the only pests that affect crops in Acadiana and the rest of Louisiana.

With southern Louisiana’s warm, humid climate, rodents and some reptiles can live outside all year round. Rats, mice, and snakes are especially attracted to areas like sugarcane fields because these crops will often be habitats to a number of insects and smaller reptiles that make up their food sources.

In this southern region of Louisiana, it’s not uncommon to see fields of sugarcane bordering residential neighborhoods. If you live in the Acadiana region, your home is likely not too far away from a habitat that’s rich with creatures that you don’t want to get too close to. (more…)
