FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Mosquitoes are going to be a big problem this year and it’s all because of the warmer than usual weather we had over the winter, experts said.

Harris Pest Control in Florence said over the past 12 months, the only month it did not get calls concerning insects was the month of January.

The company said normally after September, there is no need to spray for mosquitoes.

Experts suggest making sure right now that you don’t have any containers in your yard that will collect standing water.

Experts also said mosquitoes love to hide under fallen tree leaves during the day, so make sure branch limbs and yard debris are always cleared from your property.
