BMCA strives to reduce and control the mosquito population in Berkeley County. This ongoing effort involves a number of strategies, including:
- Larval Control/Source Reduction
- Adult Control
- Public Education
Surveillance and Inspection
Mosquito Abatement personnel use several measures (including landing rate counts, light trap collections, larval sampling, and requests for service) to determine where control efforts are needed, the severity of the problem, and the types of control to implement.
Juvenile Mosquito Control
Mosquito Abatement is also responsible for larviciding throughout Berkeley County. Larviciding is a year-round process used to eliminate breeding sites and to kill mosquitoes when they are in the larval stage.
We take various measures to decrease the population of adult mosquitoes. We are responsible for adulticiding throughout Berkeley County. Exception: parts of Bonneau Beach which are sprayed by Santee Cooper.
Requests for Service
To request service, call our office during regular business hours. Requests are documented and issued to field technicians who evaluate conditions and determine appropriate measures for treatment.
