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 provides the ability to respond to mosquito-borne disease outbreaks
  • It enables a community to respond to constituent complaints about mosquitoes
