SCMAC Programs -

Public Education

We take part in public and school events to inform residents about mosquitoes, their life cycle and habitat, and how they spread diseases.

Residents are also informed about how the SCMAC program works and what services are offered.

Larviciding

By treating water during the day, we target the 2nd and 3rd stages of the mosquito life cycle.  This proactive measure prevents mosquitoes from maturing into adults, thus limiting the spread of disease.

This is a reactive program targets mosquito adults. Our trucks spray during the night after sunset when the adults are most active.  The ULV sprayers are calibrated to target only mosquitoes.

Barrier Treatment
