Why Year-Round Pest Control Is A Great Idea For Your South Carolina Home


Which Pests Invade Homes (and When)

Some pests invade homes more often than others. Rodents, spiders, and cockroaches are great examples of pests that invade homes year-round. Stink bugs and boxelder bugs, on the other hand, only invade homes during the colder months of fall and winter.

When a pest invades all comes down to what they are looking for in a home. Some pests don’t invade homes during the winter as their bodies slow down or enter hibernation. 

Pests Are Not Just Annoying

You already know pests are annoying, but did you know some are also dangerous and destructive? Pests like carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and termites dig holes and tunnels into structures of wood. While you might not notice them at first, these can be extremely damaging over time and cost homeowners thousands of dollars to fix.

Other pests are dangerous. Rodents, cockroaches, fleas, and ticks spread disease around homes. Here are a few common diseases these pests transmit:

  • Salmonellosis (rodents and cockroaches)
  • Dysentery (cockroaches)
  • Hantavirus (rodents)
  • Rat-bite fever (rodents)
  • Lyme disease (ticks)
  • Murine typhus (fleas) 

Some pests like cockroaches attribute to asthma attacks and allergic reactions with their shed skin and fecal matter. If you have respiratory problems, these pests could be harmful to you.

Pests like wasps, bees, and fire ants are dangerous in another way. Specifically, these pests sting, which is not only painful but potentially life-threatening to individuals who are allergic to insect venom.

Why Addressing Pest Problems As They Arise Is Bad

It seems easier to react to pest problems at the moment. Ants invade your home and you start searching for solutions online. Simple, right? Maybe, but only if ants are the only pest that invades your home. The more pests that invade, the more difficult addressing problems become.

Unless you commit several hours a week to eliminating pests around your home, you will never stay on top of problems as they arise. The only way to ensure pests stay out is with ongoing pest prevention.
