Picture this: It’s Saturday night, and you are planning an epic barbeque with family. Your nieces, your nephews, your grandmother and grandfather and everyone on both sides of the family are going to be there. While the husband fires up the grill and gets the food ready for your guests, you decide to take a peek around the yard to make sure there is no debris or anything that needs to be tidied up.

Within a minute of entering your yard, you feel a tingling sensation on your leg, followed by the unmistakable itch. Yup, that itch: the one that makes you slap your ankle in frustration, curse at the mosquitoes, and reach for the bug spray. “Honey,” you yell, “Bring me some Off?”

“It’s all gone,” he replies casually, from the grill. “I used it all– yesterday.” In this moment, the only thing you want to slap more than the mosquitoes is him. Doesn’t he understand the importance of mosquito control in Charleston, SC?

No bug spray? Guests coming over? You live in the South, baby– you live in Charleston, South Carolina! Mosquitoes are serious business around here! With everything that is going around, including the dreaded Zika virus, you panic a little inside thinking about all of the guests that will be arriving soon– especially the little children, your beloved nieces and nephews.
