If you live in the low country, you know that the mosquitoes are no joke. Mosquito control is not a luxury, it is a necessity!
Proterm LLC wants you to be able to enjoy your summers without having to constantly swat away those pesky mosquitoes. If you’ve noticed a growth in the mosquito population lately, you’re not crazy! There are more than ever before! Aside from these insects being an even bigger nuisance and leaving you with itchy bug bites, they can also carry very serious diseases.
As summers approach Proterm LLC urges our local Charleston residents to take extra precaution against mosquitoes. The Zika virus is spread by bites of infected mosquitoes. Typically, only one in five of those infected with the Zika virus will become ill. Symptoms range from minor joint pain and rashes to severe symptoms that can lead to death. While you exposure is not that likely, Proterm LLC would rather you be safe than sorry.
