While the cooler temperatures are setting in and we look toward the holidays, mosquito control is likely the last thing on your mind. What may be on your mind, or the minds of people you know, is wedding bells. Indeed, according to, 40% of engagements happen between Thanksgiving and Valentine’s Day!

If you’re one of the lucky ones this holiday season (or will be helping plan the wedding of a newly-minted bride- or groom-to be), in addition to the usual hustle and bustle of shopping, get-togethers with family, making (and eating) big meals, holiday parties, and all the usual frenzy, you’ll also soon be caught up in the task of wedding planning. What we’ve found is that people either love or loathe planning a wedding, there usually isn’t anything in between.

Planning a wedding can get overwhelming and even daunting, but having a perfect “big day” is the always the ultimate end goal. Everything from choosing the date, to the venue(s), finding a dress, getting alterations, choosing linens, the cake, and even the seating arrangements . . . there are so many things to think about to make the special day “just right” it’s easy to overlook the little things that can make a big difference. If you’re thinking of having an outdoor wedding in the Florence-Sumter or Spartanburg-Greenwood area, those “little things making a big difference” often come in the form of mosquitoes.

Mosquito Squad knows that the last thing you want is to go through all the trouble of planning the perfect day and have it crashed by mosquitoes, which is why we offer a special event mosquito control service for your outdoor Sumter SC, Florence SC, Spartanburg SC, and Greenwood SC weddings.

A day or two before your wedding day, our technicians will visit the venue and treat the entire outdoor area with our signature barrier treatment, which will guarantee nearly 90% fewer mosquitoes at your event. It generally takes about 20 minutes to distribute the treatment (depending on the size of the venue), and only takes 30 minutes to dry, so it is very easy to fit us into your final party preparation appointments. We’re flexible, too — so if something changes last minute (say, the decorators came early or your future mother-in-law insists on poking around the event site at the final hours), just let us know and we can accommodate. It’s your wedding day, so everything should be just right.

With our hot and humid climate here in South Carolina, these little buggers are always out in full force during wedding season, and a mosquito-free wedding is crucial. Nobody wants people to leave their wedding early because of the bugs, it should be memorable for all the right reasons.

If you’re hoping for an engagement ring this holiday season, we’ll keep our fingers crossed for you. If you get your wish, don’t forget to call Mosquito Squad for special event mosquito control in the Sumter, Florence, Spartanburg, or Greenwood areas. We’ll help you “get hitched” without the itch!
