Why Work with the Professionals?
With warm, humid conditions most of the year, Louisiana is the perfect environment for many insects, rodents, roaches, and other pests to flourish. In most homes, and particularly during peak infestation season, home remedies and treatments are simply not enough. It is often as much as or even more expensive to perform pest control treatments yourself and you may harm yourself with chemicals you are not used to handling. Instead, trust the experts to inspect, treat, and prevent any pest issues. Our Baton Rouge pest control technicians are customer-service-focused. We want to ensure you don’t have to deal with this other than making a phone call.
In order to provide you with the best service possible, our technicians will work with your schedule to set up monthly, quarterly, semi-annual, or annual pest control services without inconveniencing you. All home treatments are odorless and safe for your family and pets. And remember, we always do what we say or your service is free.
Signs of an Infestation
So how can you be sure that you have a pest infestation on your hands? It depends on the pest, but there are usually signs:
A sighting is usually the biggest tip-off that you have a roach issue on your hands. Roaches are typically sighted at night but can be found during the day as well, usually in a darker, dry place. Roach droppings are also a visible indicator of a roach problem; very similar to mouse droppings, roach droppings will have ridges rather than being pointed at the ends. You may also find tan colored eggs, although this is less likely as they are usually not found out in the open.
The proper roach treatment is dependent on the type of roach you are trying to eliminate. One species will rarely respond to the treatment for another species, which is a big reason to bring in a pest control specialist. We primarily use baits and dry formulations on the interior of the structure. We perform a liquid residual service on the exterior of the structure.
American Roaches, Brown Banded Roaches, German Roaches, Oriental Roaches, Smokey Brown Roaches We treat for all types of roaches.
The most common way to discover if you have a rodent infestation is by discovering their droppings scattered throughout your cabinets, closets, or anywhere the rodent may have traveled. Other signs to be on the lookout for include paw prints, shavings and teeth marks indicative of gnawing, and, in the case of extreme infestation, a distinctive odor from urine.
Once a rodent infestation has occurred, it is virtually impossible to deal with the situation on your own and there are serious health concerns linked to rodents. Your best bet is to have a professional treat your home. We use rodent baits, glue boards, mechanical traps and exclusion techniques to control rodents.
Depending on the species, spiders can either be a nuisance or a danger. Either way, you certainly don’t want them in your home. While they don’t leave much of a trail behind, outside of their telltale webs, any sighting can be cause for alarm.
Whether they arrive through cracks in walls, windows, or floors or are carried in with other outdoor equipment, it’s best to let a professional identify and exterminate any spider infestation. Performing a thorough exterior treatment and sealing all entry points is key to controlling spiders.

While most insects that might try to make a home inside your house are harmless, they are a nuisance or can cause discomfort through bites. Arceneaux Pest Management is the expert at identifying and creating a treatment plan, regardless of your infestation. Our Quarterly Pest Service really keeps bugs at bay. There’s no charge for additional services performed between quarterly visits.

In Louisiana, mosquitoes are so prevalent that people often joke they’re the official state bird. They constantly plague us outside, ruining our backyard barbecues, pool parties, and gardening. Mosquitoes are more than annoying, they can harbor diseases such as West Nile or even Zika.
It’s impossible to completely eliminate mosquitoes, but you can help curb the population and get rid of standing water on your property. For temporary relief, look to Arceneaux Pest Control’s Mosquito Abatement service. Mosquito Abatement is best used to prep for parties or other outdoor gatherings. Before your event, we visit your property to spray, which starts to work immediately and can last several days.

If you don’t know what you’re looking for, these small bloodsuckers aren’t easy to diagnose. Since they’re only about the size of an apple seed, it’s more common to find small bites and rashes on your skin before you see the bugs themselves. But don’t take it personally if you find these critters around—these pests aren’t drawn in by filth. In fact, it has nothing to do with food. They can be brought in from anywhere, and—as long as they have access to blood—they can live anywhere.
Bed bugs can be hard to wipe out on your own—especially if they’ve taken residence in your walls and furniture. But to help ease the situation, there are a number of actions you can take. For example, washing any infested fabric with hot water and on the highest dryer setting. You can also get rid of clutter so they have nowhere to hide and vacuum, disposing of the contents immediately. But at the end of the day, the best action to take is to have professionals come in and treat your home. Bed bugs can survive for up to a year without food, so it’s best to be as thorough as possible.
