Common Pests in West Columbia, SC
More on pests in your area
Residents and pests alike enjoy the warm weather and riverside location of West Columbia, SC. Female mosquitoes annoy locals by biting and feeding on their blood. Besides being itchy and unpleasant, mosquito bites can spread numerous diseases. Spiders also thrive in the city's hot, humid climate. While most house spiders are simply nuisances, the area also hosts harmful species like the southern black widow and brown recluse. Their painful bites contain venom that may cause scarring, muscle spasms, and difficulty breathing, among other symptoms.
Cockroaches, locally called palmetto bugs, invade West Columbia homes and hide in kitchen cupboards, basements, and bathrooms. These pests feed on stored goods, leaving their droppings and shed skins behind. People who eat contaminated food can contract salmonella or have serious allergic reactions. Bed bugs also cause problems in the area by sneaking into homes on secondhand furniture or in luggage. In addition to staining sheets and furniture with blood, bed bugs can leave itchy rashes on people's skin as a result of their bites.
