Houma Pest Pressure

Cities like Houma, LA, make prime areas for pests to find homes. In addition to ample food sources and access to shelter, the Houma region offers a warm, subtropical climate featuring average highs in the 60s throughout much of the year. Insects such as flies and mosquitoes thrive in the hot, humid area. Both types of pests primarily rely on humans for sustenance: mosquitoes feed on the blood of mammals and birds, while flies eat decayed organic matter like garbage and rotting plants. These flying pests are known to spread diseases such as dysentery, typhus, tularemia, leprosy, and West Nile virus.

Ants are another pest problem in Houma, specifically the red fire ant. Introduced into the United States in the 1930s, the invasive pests are capable of disrupting building foundations and contaminating food stores. However, the biggest concern local residents face is the threat of physical harm. Red fire ants are notorious for attacking and biting, which leaves painful, itchy marks on the skin.
