New Invasive Forest Pest Arrives in South Carolina

100 miles away from the closest known infestation point, the Asian longhorned beetle (Anoplophora glabripennis), has been discovered in South Carolina. This is a federally regulated invasive wood-boring pest. Since the sighting of the pest, the State and Federal have started working hard to try to eradicate this pest.

At Team Veterans Pest Control, some of the pests we can help you inspect and control include:


Ants are one of the most common pests in South Carolina. There are many species of ants, and they are usually at their peak during the summer months. You can find sugar ants alongside other smaller species of ants in the corners of your kitchen and pantries. This pest gets into the home in search of food. However, they can also contaminate the food present in the home. Unlike sugar ants, carpenter ants will not affect your food but can be destructive to your wall.


You can also experience cockroach infestation in South Carolina. They can be found scurrying around your home at night in search of food. In the daytime, these bugs hide in dark corners. Cockroaches come in different species. However, the ones you would likely find in your home are the American, Oriental, and German cockroaches. 

Mosquitoes and Ticks

These insects are disease-carrying pests. As a homeowner in South Carolina, Mosquito or Tick infestation is something you may experience at some point in time. It is advisable to seek professional help once you notice signs of this pest. 

Wasps and Hornets

The warmer the weather, the more active wasps and hornets become. Although these insects usually prey on smaller insects, they can still be a source of discomfort in your home. They can cause severe problems for those that are allergic to their stings. Those that are not can still be hurt severely.
