Berkeley County Mosquito Abatement

July 02, 2022

The Mission Statement of the Berkeley County Mosquito Abatement Department (BCMA) is to defend the health and well-being of Berkeley County’s citizens from disease and discomfort caused by mosquitoes, using integrated mosquito management practices that are effective, economical, and protective of human health and the environment.

BMCA strives to reduce and control the mosquito population in Berkeley County. This ongoing effort involves a number of strategies, including:

  • Surveillance/Inspection
  • 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.

Adult Control

They take various measures to decrease the population of adult mosquitoes. They 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 the Berkeley County Mosquito Abatement office at (843) 719-4646 during regular business hours (6 am-2 pm M-F). Requests are documented and issued to field technicians who evaluate conditions and determine appropriate measures for treatment.
