When Do You Need to Call a Bug Exterminator?

exterminatorSouth Carolina is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. We have almost everything that’s needed by a resident. However, people are not the only ones who would like to live here. Pests are also delighted to call this place their home. Pests come in different types and find ways to let you know that they exist, even though, in many cases, signs of insect infestation are mostly hidden. If you think you have a problem with bugs at home, the best solution is to call a bug exterminator.

Cockroaches, ants, bedbugs, termites, and mosquitoes are just a few of the most common pests found in homes. Although there are many products sold in your local stores that can help you deal with these pests, most of them don’t have lasting effects compared to professional pest control services. Plus, a DIY approach commonly falls short of your expected results.

Signs You Need a Bug Exterminator


Ants are common pests that invade homes. Local ant varieties include odorous house ants, little black ants, fire ants, carpenter ants, Argentine ants, and acrobat ants.

Ants are very organized colonists that love to build nests in your home while looking around for food. They particularly like the kitchen area, especially if you have lots of unprotected sugary foods.


exterminatorThe most common types of cockroaches are wood cockroaches, oriental cockroaches, German cockroaches, brown-banded cockroaches, and American cockroaches.

These pests love dark places and usually live inside the walls of your home. They are, in most cases, hard to find unless you surprise them in the evening when you switch on the light in the dark kitchen. They are scavengers that would eat anything and are also carriers of diseases. Some roaches like dry areas, while others prefer moist ones. If you see them at home, be sure to call  pest control in Myrtle Beach right away.


One out of five homes is infested with termites. If you see mud tubes around the foundation of your house or see these pests swarming, then you have a problem, and you need the expert help of a pest control company. They love cellulose, which means they can cause extensive damage to the structural members of your home.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs can become a significant problem at home. They live in your sleeping quarters and could easily move by hitching a ride on a passing visitor who is unknowingly bringing them to a new place. One effective way of eliminating them is heat remediation. They need to be addressed right away by a pest control specialist.
