Since Southwest Louisiana has warm weather about eight months out of the year, backyard pools are a favorite addition to many family homes. The kids, and the neighborhood kids, love it, the parents like having the kids at home where they can keep an eye on things, and once the initial investment is paid, it's a great way to entertain without spending a lot of money.

Your home is probably your costliest investment, yet its strength and value can be compromised by something millions of times smaller. Pests such as ants, termites and mice can invade every nook and cranny, making themselves comfortable throughout your home.
