Common Pests in Alexandria, LA
More on pests in your area
The year-round warm weather and considerable humidity in Alexandria, LA, attract a number of pests, including mosquitoes and ticks. Mosquitoes breed near standing water and are often found buzzing around nearby residences where female mosquitoes feed on the blood of humans. Blood is the primary source of food for ticks, as well. These pests wait in tall grass for hosts to walk by and then latch onto their victims. Both mosquitoes and ticks are capable of transmitting diseases, like West Nile or Zika virus and Lyme disease, respectively.
Mice and rats are also major pest problems in Alexandria. These pests find their way into buildings at the onset of cooler weather via cracks in foundations and holes in window and door screens. Once inside, the rodents nest in attics, basements, and wall voids. They contaminate food, destroy personal property, gnaw holes in the walls, and create unsanitary living conditions by leaving their droppings everywhere. Mice and rats can spread diseases, including tularemia, hantavirus, and rat-bite fever.
