Common Pests in Lake Charles, LA
More on pests in your area
Although the winters in Lake Charles, LA, are relatively mild, the cooler weather still pushes pests indoors. For example, mice and rats congregate in attics and basements. They cause extensive property damage by urinating everywhere, gnawing on wires and drywall, and contaminating food. The rodent pests also spread diseases like leptospirosis and salmonellosis. Bed bugs are common winter pests, as well. They hide in mattresses and headboards and feed on people's blood during the night. Though they don't spread disease, these pests may leave rashes on their victims' skin.
Pests that are active during the warm season around Lake Charles include mosquitoes and earwigs. Similar to bed bugs, female mosquitoes' main source of food is blood. However, these pests are dangerous because they are capable of spreading diseases such as the West Nile and Zika viruses. Earwigs invade homes and gather in cool, damp basements and bathrooms to avoid the hot outdoor weather. Their frightening appearance often disturbs people.
