Common Pests in Cary, NC
More on pests in your area
Cary, NC, has a mild climate with heavy rainfall in the summer. The precipitation combined with the many rivers and lakes located within city limits make the area attractive to pests such as mosquitoes. The Asian tiger mosquito is particularly abundant in the area. They feed on human blood, leave itchy welts on their victims' skin, and spread diseases like dengue, Chikungunya, and Zika. Ticks, another common pest in the area, are similar to mosquitoes in that they feed on blood and spread disease. Cary residents may unknowingly pick them up while hiking or spending time in tall grass or vegetation.
During fall and winter, pests invade homes to escape the harsh weather. Brown marmorated stink bugs overwinter in wall voids and gather in alarmingly large groups. They produce an unpleasant odor when crushed or vacuumed up. Multicolored Asian lady beetles also move inside to survive the winter months. Infestations of these pests can have an effect on air quality and trigger allergies or asthmatic reactions in residents.
