Common Pests in Chapel Hill, NC
More on pests in your area
Chapel Hill, NC, is a large city that regularly deals with pest issues. Residents enjoy hot, humid summers, but so do local mosquitoes and other insects. Mosquitoes breed in standing water and are known to carry several diseases, including West Nile and Zika virus. The beginning and end of summer coincides with tick season in the region. Ticks thrive in wooded areas as well as in tall grasses. The pests attach themselves to both residents and pets and can pass along harmful viruses like Lyme disease and encephalitis.
Since Chapel Hill experiences a fluctuating population of people throughout the year due in large part to the inflow of college students, bed bug infestations are common. Bed bugs are parasitic insects that routinely hitch rides on clothing, luggage, and furniture. Additionally, Chapel Hill residents face pests that invade homes at the onset of cold weather. Rodents such as rats, house mice, and deer mice enter homes in search of shelter and food. These pests contaminate food stores and carry diseases. Deer mice in particular are known for spreading hantavirus.
