Common Bugs that Hilton Head Exterminator encounters
Hilton Head Island and Bluffton areas harbor numerous species of pests. Most of them are harmless when minding their own business, but a few can become a nuisance, or worse, a threat to your health. The common types include;
Ticks are eight-legged parasites that feed on mammal blood. There are various species of ticks. The common tick species are the black-legged ticks, which are common during spring and fall season, and the American dog tick, which appears brown with white or yellow spots. Ticks can transmit Tularemia and other diseases.
Termites are social insects that usually live underground. Termites destroy wooden structures. They may be creamy white, dark brown, or black in color.
Paper wasps are found in small colonies. They have six legs, a pair of wings, and antennae. They are usually brown in color. Paper Wasps can sting if provoked.
Oriental cockroaches live in damp places such as garbage disposals. For this reason, they can contaminate human food with bacteria. Additionally, their droppings may cause allergic reactions.
Orb spiders, also known as garden spiders, are identified by their light brown or black color. They build a circular web that has a diameter of around 60cm on tree branches, corners, and decks. They are commonly found in gardens. The spiders can bite if they are provoked, but their venom is not strong.
Brown recluse spiders
This is a venomous spider species that is often identified by a violin-shaped mark on its body. After biting, the area appears red and swollen. The Brown recluse spider’s bite may take long to heal. In some cases, its venom can cause a severe body reaction.
Mosquitoes are pale brown slim insects. Female mosquitoes feed on blood. Mosquitoes spread diseases like malaria, yellow fever, Zika virus, and other life-threatening illnesses.
House flies are the most common types of insects identified by their gray color and a pair of wings. They are attracted to places where water is available. A house fly can transmit diseases like dysentery and diarrhea.
You are likely to encounter other bugs like fleas, fruit flies, stink bugs, springtails, and other species that are visible seasonally. When the weather starts turning cold
Most bugs cannot withstand cold temperatures. For this reason, they migrate to warm areas where they can survive during cold seasons. One of their preferences is to find shelter at nearby houses. This is the reason why it is recommended that you carry out regular extermination to control and eliminate them.
