What is Beaufort County Mosquito Control doing about these 3 Mosquito-Borne Diseases?

BCMC considers EEE, WNV, and Zika Viruses to be public health threats. SCDHEC, Clemson Veterinary Diagnostic Clinic, and/or BCMC  monitor these mosquito-borne diseases among mosquitoes, birds, horses, and/or humans. Subsequently, BCMC will intensify surveillance and mosquito abatement efforts if EEE, WNV, or Zika Virus are detected anywhere in Beaufort County. Some of these methods include:

 

  • Increase the collection of mosquitoes throughout Beaufort County for testing
  • Encourage residents and visitors to help with our surveillance program, such as for WNV (Dead Bird Surveillance)
  • Monitor mosquito-borne disease activity in adjacent counties, such as:      Chatham (GA), Jasper (SC),  Hampton (SC), and Colleton (SC)
  • Provide additional training for all BCMC employees
  • Participate in the state wide surveillance program for mosquitoes and dead birds
  • Coordinate our response plan with other government agencies
  • Educate the residents and visitors of Beaufort County about "mosquito hygiene" (source reduction of mosquito breeding sites and avoidance of biting mosquitoes), which are key to reduce the risk of EEE, WNV, and Zika Virus 

 

 

 

 

The public is encouraged to help with the detection of West Nile Virus (WNV) in wild birds throughout Beaufort County.
