What We Do

The South Carolina Mosquito Control Association, incorporated in 1973, is a non-profit organization established to promote professionalism in mosquito control. It helps protect the health and well-being of South Carolina's citizens from disease and discomfort caused by mosquitoes through the promotion of scientifically sound mosquito control practices.

Why Mosquito Control?

  • It increases productivity for those who work outside
  • It protects the public from mosquito-borne diseases
  • It protects our animals (dogs and horses) from mosquito-borne diseases
  • It reduces nuisance levels of mosquitoes and enhances the quality of life for those who enjoy the outdoors
  • It provides the ability to respond to mosquito-borne disease outbreaks
  • It enables a community to respond to constituent complaints about mosquitoes

Our Purpose

  • Promote mosquito control in South Carolina
  • Maintain public interest in mosquito control
  • Keep up with the latest developments in mosquito control and prevention control methods
