Are you tired of unsuccessfully trying to get rid of ants from your New Orleans area home or business using “do it yourself” methods? Or are you seeing new ant problems in places where you’ve never seen them before? No matter what your issue is with ant control, we can help by providing professional elimination of the problem.
As part of the after effects of Hurricane Katrina, specific ant populations in the New Orleans area have developed a stronger foothold in the local community. A few of the flood-adapted ant species, including the red fire ant (indigenous to the South America Paraguay River floodplain), became suppressed, due to the flooding conditions. As a result, the more aggressive ant colonies developed larger populations that are posing significant problems to the residents of New Orleans.
Effective Ant Pest Control Management
While there are specific seasons of the year that the ant population tends to increase, many of the threats they produce at residential homes happen year-round, in the south. Using a variety of ant pest control methods, exterminators offer ongoing protection for all the ants in the area that include:
Acrobat Ant Argentine Ant Carpenter Ant Citronella Ant Crazy Ant
Field Ant Fire Ant Ghost Ant Harvester Ant Odorous Ant N. Asian Needle Ants
Pavement Ants Pharaoh Ant Thief Ant
Looking to prevent or get rid of a silverfish infestation? The key to silverfish control is thoroughly inspecting preferred habitat areas and where appropriate food materials are present.
Silverfish move fast and are good climbers. They can survive for weeks without food or water, but require a high humidity environment of 70 to 90 percent. Silverfish prefer areas of room temperature (70-85 degrees F/21-29 degrees C). They are nocturnal and prefer to hide or rest in tight cracks or crevices during the day. Silverfish can be found almost anywhere in a house including living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms, attics, basements, garages and shake roofs. In fact, shake roofs are excellent breeding sites for silverfish during the warmer months, as they have an abundance of moisture, cellulose, starch and dead insects. From there, they can easily gain entrance and move down through the insulation to enter a home.
Silverfish are known to infest commercial structures such as offices, stores and libraries. They are often introduced into buildings via cardboard cartons of books and papers from an infested location. They will roam quite some distance while searching for food, but once they find a satisfactory food source, they remain close to it. Within structures, they will breed in a variety of areas, including wall voids, in/under the subflooring, attics, etc.
Tick and Flea Control
Living along the Gulf Coast sometimes presents unique challenges when it comes to pest control, and managing fleas in house or yard, and tick control in New Orleans is no exception. Fleas and ticks thrive in warm weather where their entire reproductive cycle may be completed within two weeks. Few places as warm as New Orleans, especially in the summer months!
Pets are the most common source of a fleas in house or tick infestation. They get fleas from some other flea infected animal. An infected cat, dog, or even a raccoon or opossum may have went through your yard or neighborhood and the female flea laid eggs. Your pet may potentially carry these pests into the home, but they may also enter the home even if you don’t own a pet. There are many cases where fleas and ticks may attach themselves to your clothing, or even enter a home or business through an open door or crevice.
Once inside the home or business flea eggs begin to hatch, and flea larvae remain hidden within crevices and beneath carpeting. Vacuuming is sometimes successful in ridding the home of a portion of these eggs and larvae, but prior to using any chemical treatment, contact your local DIAL ONE Pest Control professional for a free inspection.
Ticks present a different problem, as tick control is not the same as flea control. Ticks will seek hidden locations within a home or business, so repairing cracks or holes in the walls as well as keeping grass cut short may help prevent infestations. However, if these methods do not work, contact DIAL ONE Pest Control before attempting any type of chemical treatment.

We provide proven roach control solutions throughout metro New Orleans, and can help you get rid of those pesky bugs once and for all.
The Real Problem with Roaches
Cockroaches have a nasty habit of consuming any type of food product in the home including spilt beverages, along with the crumbs and food that is trapped in the grout and cracks around the home and on the countertops and dirty dishes left in the dishwasher. While they tend not to bite pets and people, they do shed, and leave their hazardous waste products all around. These harmful waste products can become airborne as they decompose, which can lead to asthma and allergy symptoms, and they are known to contaminate food with many types of micro-organisms.

Spider Control & Removal
Every spider can bite, but only a few have the ability to cause serious health problems. The Brown Recluse and the Black Widow are the most notorious and should be taken very seriously. It is not recommended that an untrained individual identify these species for the purpose of control or medical treatment. Misidentification can lead to improper medical treatment and serious health complications. Unsuccessful control of dangerous spiders is not acceptable. If you think you have a spider infestation, call a professional to get a positive identification. If you receive a bite and suspect a dangerous spider may be responsible, get medical help and ask for a specialist.
