As many of you know, summer in Charleston brings humid high temperatures, which means a rise in mosquito activity. Mosquitoes are typically most active at sunrise and sunset, or dawn and dusk, and they can certainly put a damper on your activities during those times.
Berkeley County is responsible for spraying Daniel Island for mosquitoes through its Mosquito Abatement program. Their mission statement 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 which are effective, economical, and protective of human health and the environment.
Berkeley County provides its daily spray schedule on its website so you can check when our island was recently sprayed, or when it will be sprayed. If you would like to see the spray schedule, please click here.
