   Dorchester County has just announced the first ground
   spraying schedule
    for mosquito control in 2022 . The first treatments are tentatively scheduled to begin the week of May 23 in the Dorchester and Ashley Phosphate Road area .
   Ground spraying will take place between the hours of 9:00 PM - 5:00 AM , Monday - Friday , excluding holidays . Residents are encouraged to
   locate their zone
    via the
   Mosquito Abatement Map
&......nbsp;   that subdivides the County into fifty ( 50 )
   spray zones
    .  Each zone has its own map printed with detailed street information . The County may change the boundary of these zones from time to time to provide for more efficient mosquito abatement spraying . Ground spraying may also be canceled or postponed due to poor weather conditions or other issues that limit the ability to spray .
   Dorchester County residents can review the bi - weekly 
   spray schedule
     ( schedule is updated every two weeks while spraying is ongoing ) , and may also request ground spraying via the 
   online request form
    .
   Mosquito bites can cause itchy bumps , but they can also spread diseases . The most common diseases that could potentially be carried by mosquitoes in South Carolina include: West Nile , Eastern Equine Encephalitis , La Crosse Encephalitis , Saint Louis Encephalitis , and dog/cat heartworms
   Some tips to avoid the itchy bites this summer are:
   
   Keep your yard clean and mowed
   
   Fix leaking faucets
   
   Keep gutters clean
   
   Empty any containers that hold water , such as cans , bottles , and potted plant saucers
   
   Fill tree holes
   
   Remove old tires
   
   Maintain swimming pools
   
   Change water in birdbaths twice a week
   
   Stay indoors at dawn , dusk , and early evening
   
   Wear long sleeve shirts and long pants when outside
   
   Avoid perfumes or other scented products
   
   Apply insect repellent to exposed skin and follow directions
   
   Install screens on any open windows
   Please visit
   DorchesterCountySC . gov/mosquito
    for more information about the Dorchester County Mosquito Control program and to learn about the products used to control the spread of mosquitos .
   Dorchester County operates a Mosquito Control Program to protect its citizens from the spread of mosquito - borne diseases by spraying pesticides ( insecticides ) , applying larvicide to low - lying areas , and educating its citizens on reducing the conditions that foster increases in the mosquito population .
