North Charleston SC Exterminator, Pest Control & Termite Inspector

North Charleston Pest Pressure

North Charleston is a sunny, coastal community in South Carolina. The area is hot, humid, and sees an above average amount of rainfall each year. Insect pests like mosquitoes and red imported fire ants thrive in these conditions, and both are potentially harmful to humans. Mosquitoes feed on the blood of mammals and birds, which includes people and pets, and transmit such diseases as West Nile virus and Zika virus to their victims. Residents run into problems with mosquitoes in areas with standing water, like unattended ponds, drainage ditches, and bird baths.

Red imported fire ants are an invasive species of insect that builds mounds in the soil near food sources. Their colonies can reach tens of thousands of ants. They mainly prey upon insects and spiders, plus are attracted to dead, organic materials and heat generated by electrical equipment, both of which are common in North Charleston. The pests become a problem when they start getting to close to homes or other structures. When disturbed, red imported fire ants will sting people and inject them with a toxic venom. Serious reactions can occur as a result of the venom, some even requiring hospitalization.
