Common Pests in Conway, SC
More on pests in your area
As part of the Myrtle Beach metropolitan area, Conway, SC experiences high levels of humidity, which makes it an ideal nesting ground for mosquitoes. These pests develop in floodwaters, swamps, ponds, pools, birdbaths, and any other areas of stagnant water throughout the city, and their numbers swell quickly during the summer. Since their main source of food is blood (only female mosquitoes feed on blood/bite; males drink plant nectar), mosquitoes hang around populated areas and irritate people by biting them. In additional to causing swollen, itchy bumps on skin, mosquito bites carry the risk of disease transmission. Fleas are another blood-feeding pest found in Conway, but they generally prefer pets and other small mammals as hosts.
Ticks are common blood feeders in the Conway area, too. These pests live in tall grasses and bushy areas where they await a passing host to crawl on and begin taking a blood meal. Ticks are especially serious because they're known carriers of Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and many other diseases. Finally, bed bugs have a long record of infesting homes and hotels in Conway, with increasing frequency in recent years. The pests live in the seams of mattresses and cracks in headboards and come out at night to feed. Their presence can induce sleeplessness and psychological trauma in residents.
