CLARK'S PEST CONTROL IN CHARLESTON, SC
There is a lot for you to enjoy by living in Charleston, South Carolina, especially its coastal climate. The same weather that tourists and residents of the Low country find so appealing also provides an excellent habitat for pests. The hot, humid environment attracts a wide array of critters and creepy crawlers.
Unfortunately, bugs and other pests will eventually find their way into every yard and home, including yours. Mosquitoes, ticks, paper wasps, houseflies, cockroaches, ants, and more can bite and sting in the Charleston area.
These pests can wreak havoc on your family and home. Thankfully, with a solid home pest control plan from Clark's Termite and Pest Control, you can minimize the number of visits from these nasty invaders and enjoy a relatively pest-free home on the coast.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Pests don’t belong in your home. At Clark’s Termite and Pest Control, we utilize the most advanced chemistry, strategic season-specific treatments, and an expertly trained staff to make sure that pests not only leave your home but stay gone. If pests return, so do we.
Common Pests Found In Charleston, SC
WE KNOW WHERE PESTS THRIVE: YOUR HOME
Your Charleston home has what pests want: food, water, warmth, shelter, and escape from the elements and predators.
When they invade, they can aggravate allergies, spread germs, bite, sting, and be generally irritating.
HOW WE KEEP YOUR HOME PEST FREE IN CHARLESTON
Our philosophy for safe, effective pest control begins with the fact that most pests enter your home from the exterior. The pest control experts at Clark's offer Charleston area homeowners four strategic points of treatment for attacking pests in and around your home, kicking them to the curb for good! Our program emphasizes maintaining a solid protective barrier around the exterior to limit the number of times and chemicals needed on the inside.
Grass and shrubbery are an ideal environment for pests of all kinds who will use them as shelter, food, and a bridge to enter your house. An outside yard shrubbery and lawn treatment helps to create a boundary around your home's exterior perimeter. For this strategy, services include a combination of granular and liquid insecticides.
The walls surrounding your home are not enough to protect it from all the insects and vermin that enter through unseen holes and cracks. Our outside perimeter strategy offers four treatments per year to create a year-round barrier of pest protection. We place a 2-3 ft barrier around the home's exterior perimeter, emphasizing doors, windows, and other places where pests could easily enter. This service includes the use of liquid insecticides as well as granular insecticides and baits.
Although rarely needed, one of our complete interior treatments protects your home all year round through a comprehensive strategy for getting rid of all types of vermin and insects. For this strategy, services include a combination of liquids, baits, gels, aerosols, glue boards, and more.
Sometimes your home may have some trouble areas that need a little extra attention to get rid of pests. Especially in the spring and summer months, you may find that certain areas like kitchens, bathrooms, attics, and basements need more consideration than others. This strategy emphasizes all potential entry points, like doors, sinks, plumbing penetrations, and garages, attics, and basements.
Termite Services IN Charleston
In the Southeastern United States, termites cause more damage to homes in a year than wind, water, and fire damage combined. However, there is no coverage for them on your typical home insurance policy. With above-average year-round temperatures and a coastal climate, Charleston makes the perfect home for termites. In fact Charleston and the low country coastal area is prone to the very aggressive Formosan termite and can cause a lot of damage quickly.
THE BOTTOM LINE: Clark's termite protection plan covers you for up to $1,000,000 worth of termite damage. If we see anything during your annual inspection that needs to be addressed, we will assess the work that needs to be done and perform it at no cost to you up to$1,000,000 as part of your termite contract. See it as an additional insurance policy for termites, except there is no deductible- renew the bond every year, get the inspection done, and Clark's has you covered!

Most Common Termite in Charleston
The Formosan Termite (aka the Super Termite) are voracious eaters due to having colony sizes in the millions. They can enter your home from the ground or the air should you have above-ground moisture intrusion (leaks). Formosan Termites are now the most common termite species in Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester counties.
