Beaufort Mosquito Control
Beaufort is loved for its coastal climate and rich history. Living on one of South Carolina’s most alluring coastal sea islands, residents know all too well the constant battle of keeping mosquitoes under control. Mosquito bites can be painful, uncomfortable, and drive you indoors—even on the most beautiful of days. Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance, certain species common along the coast can also transmit illnesses to humans and pets. Among these are West Nile, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, Lacrosse Encephalitis and heartworm.
With Beaufort’s close proximity to water sources, such as marshlands and inland lagoons, residents of the Port Royal Island areas need to remain vigilant about mosquito control in order to stay protected.
- Aedes sollicitans (aka The Eastern Saltmarsh mosquito), prefers laying its eggs in stagnant salt marshes along the ocean. This species is known to venture 10 miles or more inland to find a blood meal.
- Culex salinarius (the Salt Marsh Culex), prefers breeding in saltwater marshes, or even roadside ditches filled with cattails or debris. This mosquito is considered to be a bridge vector of West Nile Virus, Eastern Equine Encephalitis and St. Louis Encephalitis, transmitting the virus from birds to humans and horses.
- Aedes albopictus (the Asian Tiger mosquito), is known as the most evasive, aggressive mosquito in the world. It is cold-hardy, lays resilient eggs and constantly acclimates to the environment. Asian Tigers are also known day-biting mosquitoes, unlike many of the other species that bite from dusk till dawn. Since Asian Tiger mosquitoes lay their eggs right on the edge of the water, rather than directly on it, any source of moisture can facilitate breeding — even in an area as minuscule as a discarded soda pop top.
