In Denham Springs, mosquitoes can become a significant problem due to the Amite River running alongside the area. BREC’s Frenchtown Road Conservation Area adds additional potential for mosquito problems since it includes many acres of forested land, along with swamps and standing water. Gray’s Creek, located on the east side of Denham Springs, also accelerates mosquito problems. Mosquito bites may only raise an itchy welt, but these pests can also carry diseases like Zika Virus and West Nile, which can be debilitating and very serious.
The large amount of forested area around Denham Springs puts residents at risk of termite infestations, including drywood, subterranean, and Formosan termites. Termites of all kinds are capable of digesting wood because of special bacteria in their digestive tract. Because they tunnel through wood from the inside out, termites can remain undetected in a household for up to 10 years. Termites don’t need to sleep, so they are working 24 hours a day, nonstop. Nationwide, termites cause $5 billion in home damages every year.
The heavily forested area around Denham Springs also attracts fleas and ticks. Both fleas and ticks can cause significant problems for pets. If you come back from a walk through the Frenchtown Road Conservation Area, Willow Woods Park, North Park, or South Park, or explore any forested areas south of River Run, make sure you inspect yourself for fleas and ticks. Ticks can transmit nasty diseases including Lyme’s Disease, Anaplasmosis, Babesiosis, Ehrlichiosis, Powassan Virus Disease, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever (RMSF).
