Understanding Pest Control

Your home is your safe haven, and you need to protect it from invasions of all forms, especially pests which potentially carry diseases.

When it comes to pest control, you and your home will be in great hands with Fischer Environmental. We have a team of pest experts who know how to identify and treat the pests that invade the local communities in Tangipahoa Parish, Louisiana.

Here are the most common pests that we most commonly treat in the area:


Termites are small insects that love to invade homes made from wood or cellulose-based material. What makes these insects powerfully destructive is that they are difficult to detect, and they show no outward signs in the early stages of their invasion.

South Louisiana is home to many types of termites that can destroy a home or building, but the most common ones are the subterranean and drywood termites.

Being a local, Louisiana based company, Fischer knows exactly what to do with our local termites. Call us today to schedule an inspection.

Bed Bugs

Oval and flat in appearance, bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed on the blood of humans. These blood meals allow them to reproduce. They are typically found on places where people sleep or rest and they come out and feed only at night, making it harder for people to successfully remove them.

If you or someone in your home is waking up to red skin rashes, or suspect you may have a bed bug problem, call us today for a free inspection.


Let’s face it, roaches are everywhere in south Louisiana!

Cockroaches like to eat almost anything, but they especially like starchy food. Most of their lives are spent living in cracks and crevices in our homes, especially in places close to their food and water source. What makes them dangerous is that they can contaminate our food and cause urinary tract infections and digestive problems.

Fischer offers guaranteed removal and control of cockroaches for both home and businesses. Call us today to schedule service.


Members of the Muridae family, rats are warm-blooded mammals. Although they have poor eyesight, they have a highly developed sense of taste and smell. Aside from destroying food crops, they can also chew and gnaw their way into a structure and cause damage wherever they go.

Fischer offers guaranteed service on rodent control. Call us today to get rid of mice and rats from your home or business.


There are more than 10,000 species of ants and while most are harmless, there are some that can damage property, such as fire ants and carpenter ants which are the most common in Tangipahoa Parish. Recently we’ve also seen an influx in calls for crazy tawny ants as well.

Ants are known to infest the wooden infrastructure inside of a home. What makes them different from termites is that they don’t eat the wood, but they chew on it to create hollowed-out sections that they will use as a nest.

Don’t wait for ants to destroy your property or bite your family members. Call Fischer today for a free inspection and treatment proposal.


Silverfish are known for their silver scales that give their body a metallic sheen. As a scavenger, it does not bite but will destroy starch-based materials such as papers, books, food crumbs, cereal boxes, and wallpaper.

If you are finding silverfish scurrying around your kitchen or bathroom, call us today to schedule a free inspection.


The common house spider belongs to the arachnid family and its body is composed of two sections: the cephalothorax and the abdomen. The silk threads it creates—called cobwebs—are a sure sign of infestation in the home. Although the presence of spiders can benefit your garden, you certainly don’t want them inside your home.

South Louisiana is home to many breeds of spiders including the dangerous brown recluse and black widow spiders. Call us today for a free estimate on keeping spiders out of your home or business.

Bees & Wasps

Bees are pollinators that feed on the nectars of flowers. They may seem harmless, but can actually hurt people with their sting which can cause painful swelling and nausea. It is important to remove a beehive nest if you have one in your property.

Wasps are similar to bees but are definitely more aggressive. Honey bees only attack when provoked and they die after a bite, while wasps can sting people multiple times. Their nests are made from wood fibers that have been chewed into a pulp.


Certain species of beetles can destroy food crops, gardens, and buildings. One of the most destructive species are the powder post beetles, which feed on hard wood. They can destroy structural foundations and furniture pieces that are made from wood if left untreated.

Fleas & Ticks

Ticks are blood-sucking bugs that belong to the arachnid family. They mostly live on grass, trees, and shrubs. Tick bites can cause allergic reactions, and can lead to diseases such as Lyme disease, Colorado tick fever, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

We have more than our fair share of ticks in south Louisiana, especially if your family has a pet or multiple pets. Contact us today to schedule an inspection to find out how we help keep your family free from ticks.

Fleas are small parasitic bugs that do not have wings. Although they are known to live on the coats of pets, they can also infest on humans. More often than not, excessive scratching from your pet could mean that fleas have been carried into home.


Aside from their stinging bites, mosquitos are also known as carriers for deadly or dangerous diseases that could lead to death and birth defects such as yellow fever, dengue fever, malaria, and Zika virus. There are thousands of species of mosquitos, but the most dangerous kind is the Aedes aegypti.

With so many potentially dangerous side effects, don’t leave your family exposed to mosquitoes unnecessarily by relying on local parish mosquito abatement efforts.

Our technicians will teach you ways to keep mosquitoes at a minimum around your property as well as treat the areas closest to your home and yard for maximum mosquito suppression. Call for a free inspection today.
