Charleston Pest Pressure

Charleston, SC, sees an increase of cockroaches and mosquitoes each year thanks to its temperate and humid climate. Cockroaches gather in basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and under kitchen sinks when invading homes. One of their major impacts to homeowners is particles of fecal matter brought in by the cockroach which may become a source of diseases such as food poisoning . Additionally, cockroaches can aggravate residents’ asthma with their presence.

Another potentially serious insect is the mosquito. These insects are a nuisance since they feed on people’s blood and leave itchy welts on their skin. Mosquitoes are also capable of spreading diseases such as West Nile virus and several others.

Since Charleston is a popular tourist destination, bed bugs are also common. Travelers who’ve stayed at infested hotels bring the pests home in their luggage. Bed bugs then gather in bedrooms where they hide in mattress seams and cracks in headboards. Like mosquitoes, they feed on blood. Bed bugs reproduce quickly and their presence and blood feeding behavior often induces insomnia in their victims.
