Wilmington NC Exterminator, Pest Control & Termite Inspector

Wilmington Pest Pressure

The city of Wilmington, NC, experiences mild winters and hot summers. The climate allows for thriving populations of stinging pests like yellow jackets, paper wasps, and carpenter bees. Yellow jackets and paper wasps build their nests in gaps in siding, crawlspaces, attics, and wall voids of homes. They quickly become aggressive and inflict painful stings on people who encroach on or threaten their colony's well-being. Carpenter bees are not quick to sting but do cause both superficial and structural damage. They burrow into wood to construct their nests, which weakens the appearance and the structural integrity of houses over time.

Ants are also a major problem in the summer. The most common species in Wilmington include carpenter ants and household nuisance ants. Carpenter ants tunnel into wooden structures to build nests and compromise the structural integrity of homes. Household ants march into kitchens looking for food and contaminate pantries and countertops. They leave chemical trails which alert other ants to the availability of food, so seeing one ant often means others are close behind.
