Pest Control

Regardless of the time of year, pest problems are a fact of life in Louisiana. Undesirable pests such as cockroaches, spiders, ants, wasps, earwigs, and silverfish can surround your home on the outside, seeking entrance whenever and wherever possible. Now you can put a stop to these unwelcome pests with a perimeter pest control plan.


Mosquitoes can be a major annoyance Louisiana residents, but they also pose a health risk. Mosquitoes can carry with them several illnesses, including the West Nile virus that has been known for taking the lives of those who are infected if not treated properly. If you are ready to eliminate your mosquito problems once and for all, it's time to call Dugas Pest Control!


Few things evoke a stronger negative reaction in people than a roach scurrying across a countertop. If you've been living with roach problems, or tried the DIY methods and they didn't work, it's time to call for help.
