Wildlife and rodent control is a fact of life for residents of Charleston and surrounding areas. Our beautiful surroundings offer a wonderful blend of urban and rural, city and wilderness. At Advanced Termite and Pest Control, our safe, humane and effective rodent/wildlife removal services will keep you and your property protected.
Rats are large in size yet still have the ability to jump, swing and climb. Black Rats can cause structural damage or fire’s by chewing through cables. They also spread human diseases, such as: Leptospirosis, Salmonella, Listeria and Toxoplasma gondii. Rats are common pests in the Charleston region, especially on the islands and downtown.
Mice are the most common rodent found in American homes. They seek comfort and warmth inside in cooler months. Mice are tiny acrobats that can invade pantries, drawers and climb on counters. Mice can feed up to twenty times per day. Aside from their annoying behavior, they are known to spread Hantavirus, Salmonella and over 100 other human pathogens.
Raccoons are very cute. They can be friendly and even playful. However, sometimes they carry Rabies, Baylisascaris infection or experience Raccoon Distemper. Raccoons are known to invade attics, crawlspaces, and walls. Raccoons can cause a great amount of damage to insulation, wiring, and duct work.
According to the South Carolina DNR, there are thirty-eight species of snakes in the Charleston area. With that said, there are approximately six venomous types out of the many species. Those snakes include: Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Timber Rattlesnake, Pigmy Rattlesnake, Copperhead, Cottonmouth, and the Coral Snake. These slithery creatures generally won’t bother you unless engaged. Still, it may be unnerving if snakes are frequent visitors around your pets, children, or guests.
