It may seem like yesterday that the pesky mosquitoes of South Carolina buzzed off for the winter, but the weather’s warming up, and that can only mean one thing: they’re back. 
Mosquito season is officially here, so from now until October, we can look forward to the faint smell of citronella and the distinct sound of a mosquito buzzing around our heads.

How to Prepare for Mosquito Season

Remove Standing Water From Your Property

There’s nothing mosquitoes love more than stagnant water! Clean out pools, ponds, and birdbaths every few days and keep empty containers flipped upside down when not in use. Take a quick inventory of any holes or depressions in your yard or on your patio and fill them before water has a chance to pool.

Clean Your Gutters

Keep water flowing through your gutters by cleaning out any debris that may have gathered over the winter. 

Repair Any Tears in Your Window Screens

Make sure mosquitoes don’t find entry into your home by sealing any cracks in your house and patching tears in your window screens. If any of your windows don’t have screens, either install screens or keep the windows closed. 

Stock Up on an Effective Mosquito Repellent

DEET or no DEET, be sure to pick an EPA-certified chemical repellent, and follow the directions carefully.
