Welcome to our re-designed website!  The Billiot Pest Control website is designed to give you 24 hour access to all the information you need to protect your home and business from household pests, mosquitoes and termites.  In southeast Louisiana, our weather doesn't always reflect the current season, but our pest problems certainly like to present themselves in several seasons throughout the year.  You may have noticed that with the colder temperatures, that you may hear some scratching in your attic or find droppings in your garage.  Rodents are looking for a warm place to nest and feed during the colder months, and your home offers lots of nooks for safe refuge.  Did you know that a mouse can enter your house through a hole the size of a dime?  A rat only needs a quarter sized opening to squeeze its way into your building.  

Billiot Pest Control offers many baiting and trapping solutions for rodents, but one of the most important things you can do is prevent them from entering your home.  Sealing your property properly is the best defense from disease carrying rodents.  Check your weatherstripping and areas where pipes are entering your walls.  Avoid creating nesting sites such as piles of debris, garbage or firewood against your home. Trim shrubs back away from your your property. Food should be kept in air tight containers.  If you suspect you already have an infestation, contact us immediately so our professionals can design a plan to eliminate and prevent future infestations.  Remember rodents reproduce quickly, and an untreated small problem can quickly turn into a big one.  Call Billiot Pest Control with any questions at 1-866-365-0075.  Stay tuned for our next blog about one of Louisiana's most active pest seasons- Termite Swarming Season!
