Charleston is famous for its historic walking tours, waterfront parks, and legendary food and beverages. But it’s called the low country for a reason. It was originally mostly swampland and is still only a few feet above sea level. And while the swamps have been pushed back and newly built homes and businesses are designed to deter rodents and insects as much as possible, you’ll probably still need professional pest control services if you’re living here long-term.
The most troublesome bugs in Charleston, SC, are the roaches, mosquitos and bed bugs.
“Affectionately” called palmetto bugs, roaches could carry salmonella and cause allergic reactions via their shedding and droppings. There are as many as 15 different types of roaches in South Carolina, although only a few are seen on a regular basis. They are often seen in older homes and may appear after significant rainfall.
Bed bugs are as notoriously persistent as cockroaches and require just as exhaustive a treatment. Some people have no reaction to bedbug bites, but many people experience an allergic reaction that can include severe itching, blisters or hives.
Mosquitos are a serious problem from April to October. They can carry viruses such as dengue, chikungunya, and Zika. But more importantly to you, the significant swarming around wet lowlands may render the outdoors unbearable to children or the elderly in particular, not to mention everyone else who wants to visit.
