Myrtle Beach Pest Pressure

The coastal community of Myrtle Beach, SC, is a hotbed for mosquito infestations. Swampy, humid conditions and warm temperatures year-round make the popular tourist destination ideal for the flying pests. Residents run into the largest mosquito populations near areas with standing, stagnant water. These places can be as small as bird baths and pools and as large as ponds, lakes, and inlet channels from the Atlantic Ocean. Mosquitoes pose a public threat concern due to their abilities to spread disease. People who are bitten by mosquitoes are capable of contracting Zika virus, West Nile virus, encephalitis, and other mosquito borne diseases.

Found in all 46 counties throughout South Carolina, red imported fire ants are equally problematic in Myrtle Beach. This non-native species of ant nests in open habitats (mounds in soil), but sometimes is attracted to electrical equipment, such as air conditioning units, ground lights, and pool heaters, and as well as open food sources. Adult red imported fire ants are omnivorous and will feed on other insects, small animals, and plant nectar commonly found in residential neighborhoods. Large enough colonies of the insects can create serious health threats. Their bites are painful and their stings are venomous and attacks can lead to hospitalization.
