In this article, we’ll discuss the common pests that become active during the summer months, share some preventive measures you can take to protect your home, and highlight the importance of professional pest control services.

Introduction to Seasonal Pests

Summer in South Carolina sees an increase in pest activity. The most common pests include cockroaches, crickets, and mosquitoes. These pests cause discomfort, pose health risks, and cause property damage. Interestingly, South Carolina ranks 1st among all the states for most pest control search activity, indicating a high demand for pest control services.

Preventive Measures

Prevention is always better than cure. Here are some tips to help you prevent a pest invasion:

  1. Seal Entry Points: Pests can enter your home through the smallest cracks and crevices. Regularly inspect your home for any potential entry points and seal them.
  2. Maintain Cleanliness: Pests are attracted to food and water sources. Ensure your kitchen and dining areas are clean and free of food particles. Regularly empty your trash bins and keep them sealed.
  3. Proper Waste Management: Dispose of your waste properly and ensure your garbage bins are sealed to prevent attracting pests.
