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


Very few bugs instill the horror produced by cockroaches living in your home. These insects are one of the most common pests found in Louisiana, and anyone dealing with them has plenty of questions. We have created this FAQ about cockroaches to help you better understand your infestation.


How do I know whether I have an infestation in my home?

It is important to understand that roaches tend to avoid contact with humans. If you are able to see cockroaches in your home, this is a good indication that you have an infestation. When large populations of roaches are present, it will force some out during daylight hours to find food and water in the overcrowded space.

Are there any signs of cockroaches other than seeing them?

There are a few different signs that may indicate a cockroach problem. If you see eggs, excrement, molted skin, or brownish smears, these are all good indications. Additionally, you may notice areas of damage that are caused by the roaches as they try to eat items in your home. (more…)

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…)
