How Every South Carolina Resident Can Benefit From Professional Pest Control


While it would be great if pests were only a problem during certain times of the year, this isn’t the case. Some pests are indeed more active in the summertime, and you’ll often notice more bugs around your South Carolina home or business. However, many pests become more active during the fall and winter months.

Because of this, pest problems are a concern year-round. And, while some pests are just a nuisance, other species can cause property damage or pose health and safety risks such as:

  • Rodents, cockroaches, and some ant species can spread various diseases and illnesses.
  • Termites and carpenter ants can ruin wooden structures throughout your home.
  • Rodents can also cause property damage as they chew on things like furniture, wires, and plumbing.
  • Wasps and other stinging insects can cause allergic reactions and other health problems.
  • While most spiders aren’t dangerous, a couple of species have potent venom that can harm people.

And, even more, harmless species such as some ant species or various beetles can still be invasive and difficult to remove completely. So, to help you keep pests away from your yard and building, here’s what you need to know about pest control.

Can Homeowners Handle Pest Control On Their Own?

Pest problems can arise at any time and sometimes with very little warning. Many property owners try to take pest control into their own hands. A lot of people just tackle pest issues when they come upon them on a case-by-case basis, but there are some downsides to doing this.

The main flaw with this logic is that most pests are much easier to prevent than control. Removing infestations is a much longer process and can lead to disruptions in your life. So, addressing pest problems once they are already there is usually not very effective or affordable.

Also, many DIY methods for pest control just don’t work very well. While there are over-the-counter products, these are usually only a band-aid solution that doesn’t address the root of the infestation. Plus, many pests, like cockroaches, are extremely difficult to control without the right tools and experience.
