Common Pests in Florence, SC
More on pests in your area
Some common pests Florence, SC, residents often encounter are mosquitoes and stink bugs. The year-round humidity and sizable population of the city makes it easy for mosquitoes to find blood meals. These pests gather in residential neighborhoods and other outdoor environments, feed on humans (female mosquitoes only; males feed on plant nectar), and often leave behind itchy welts on their victims' skin. Additionally, individuals bitten by mosquitoes are at heightened risk of contracting encephalitis or West Nile and Zika viruses. While mosquitoes thrive in warm weather, stink bugs are bothersome during the cooler season. Adults gather in large numbers on the sides of homes and buildings where they move inside seeking warm, protective places to overwinter. When they get inside their flying around and releasing a foul odor when crushed make them a big nuisance.
Termites and carpenter ants are also major pests that do well in the area’s moist and warm weather conditions, which helps maintain damp soil and wood in parts of buildings. Carpenter ants excavate tunnels and chambers in the wood, while termites actually consume the wood and use it as a source of food for the colony. This behavioral damage can put a structure at risk of collapsing if ignored long enough and also can cost homeowners an excessive amount of money in damages.
