As North Carolina’s state capital, Raleigh is a beautiful and important city with plenty of historical and cultural value. People from all over the country are relocating to this area because of the great combination of temperate weather, good schools, and availability of good jobs. However, what these transplanted new southerners are often unprepared for are the variety and virility of the insects and other pests that inhabit the environment below the Mason Dixon line. Whether you are new to the area or have lived here your whole life, pests are a real concern in the Raleigh area. Our team of partner relationships at Top NC Pest Control can help to make certain that you and your property or your business and employees are protected from the ravages of potential pest infestation.
The Piedmont area, where Raleigh is located, is known throughout the state of North Carolina for its unique geography and ecosystem. Being located between a mountain range and the Atlantic Ocean, it is centrally located in the state which make it ideal for easy travel and sightseeing. However, this location also means that it is vulnerable to the pests that frequent a variety of different ecosystems. Whether you are worried about the prevalence of ticks that frequent the mountain area or the mosquitoes and other stinging insects that plague the beachside cities and towns, Raleigh with its central location is likely to have both. A few of the most prevalent pest problems in the Raleigh area include:
- Mosquitoes: There are water sources throughout Raleigh, including several municipal lakes and large rivers. However, it is well known that wherever there are large, slow moving bodies of water, mosquitos are sure to be present. Mosquitos can bite repeatedly, leaving itchy red welts that can last for several days. People often dismiss these pesky insects as merely an irritating nuisance, but outbreaks of serious diseases around the world have been linked to mosquito bites. With viruses like Zika spreading ever closer to the Raleigh area and even more viruses being spread worldwide, mosquito bites are something that should be taken more seriously. Instead of assuming that there is nothing you can do about the mosquitos that plague your property, call our team to treat your yard and take back your outdoor space from the buzzing biters.
- Ants: Raleigh is known as the city of oaks, and it shows in the verdant green trees and foliage that permeate the city limits. However, ants are an unfortunate side effect of having a plethora of trees in your area. In Raleigh, there are several different varieties of ants that can be problematic for the city’s residents. The most prevalent of these varieties is the odorous house ant, the number one ant pest in the south. They are extremely small, topping out at about ¼ of an inch, and live in large colonies that can contain many queens. However, while their sheer number and smell is a bit intimidating, they are not by any means the only ant species Raleigh area residents need to worry about. Fire ants are also numerous in this area, and can swarm and bite in great numbers. Also problematic is the carpenter ant. A larger, black ant, these insects tunnel into wood much like a termite, and can be just as damaging. Recently, there have even been red velvet ants spotted in the Raleigh area. These ants are extremely large and their bites tend to cause an extreme reaction in most people that is painful, itchy, irritating, and uncomfortable.
- Fleas and Ticks: While Raleigh has the ocean about two hours past its eastern boundary, to the west you can find the dense forests and beautiful mountains of the Blue Ridge. The fleas and ticks that are so common in this area can often be found to make their way to Raleigh, infesting the many wooded area that are dotted throughout the city. Not only can flea and tick bites be irritating or even painful, but ticks are known to carry several serious diseases, including Lyme Disease, for which there is no known cure. Instead of taking risks with your health, call us at Top NC Pest Control to keep you and your property tick and flea free. We have partner relationships with the top technicians in the Raleigh area that are standing by to help you with this issue.
- Cockroaches: Cockroaches are a reality of living in the South that many of the Raleigh-based transplants are unprepared for when they first move here. While these pests are less harmful than many pests, they are large and many people find them particularly frightening. What’s more, because people are less familiar with them, it can often be hard to tell the difference from one or two roaches that have come in from the outdoors looking for a dark, comfortable break from the heat and a larger infestation problem. This is why it is important to hire professional pest experts to examine your home and properly determine the source of your bug issues.
