The Three Rodents that are currently very active in the New Orleans metro area due to closing of local restaurants and bars:

The House Mouse has a small home range and usually stays close to food and water.  

The Roof Rat is the climber that you see on power lines and fences.   Has a large home range and lives in attics, trees and sheds.

The Norway Rat is the ground dweller that lives under sheds and decks, where soil has subsided under slabs, or it digs holes in the ground. It also uses a large home range to find food and water.


Ramik poison comes in toss packs, one-pound bars, or mini-bars. Rodent Cafe' safety bait stations help you place poison outside responsibly so that non-target animals can't get it.

After activity has stopped, follow up with spraying Jade Cleaner to erase the rodent scent trails.  Jade has a fresh mint and pine fragrance. Apply around the base of the house, the fence line, and the garbage can area to eliminate food smells that might draw them to your area. Can also be used indoors to mop floors and clean counters.

July, 2020 was the wettest July in New Orleans weather history  and Drywood Termite colonies are moving around!


Drywood termites need just a little bit of water to survive but they cannot regulate the amount of moisture in the wood like the other types of termites can. If their nest area gets too wet, they must move to a drier area. If it dries out too much, they have to move to a wetter spot.  Wherever they are active, they will leave a pile of their poop (frass) that resembles coffee grounds and will be the same color as the wood they are eating.

CONTROL PRODUCTS:  USE Premise Foam to kill the activity then follow up with Bora Care for long-term wood protection. 


Many folks are experiencing flea issues this summer! The closing of local restaurants, bars, schools, etc., has displaced many animals like rats, mice, possums, and raccoons (all can carry fleas).
