More on pests in your area
Lafayette, LA, residents face hot, humid summers that bring various swarming and biting pests to the area. Formosan subterranean termites feed on various woods and cause structural damage by building large nests in and around manmade buildings. Local residents also encounter mosquitoes, which breed in standing water in places such as gutters and flower pots. Their populations grow quickly and the pests are known to carry harmful diseases, including Zika virus, encephelatis, and West Nile virus.
Imported fire ants are an invasive species in the Lafayette area with a painful sting that can trigger serious medical issues. Additionally, the ants infest and chew through electrical equipment, causing corrosion, shorts, and mechanical failures. As the weather cools, home invaders, such as the southern green stink bug, can be found gathering on or near houses. The pests typically overwinter indoors before emerging again in the spring to feed on local crops, potentially causing extensive financial loss.
