In the wake of recent flooding, the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is urging residents to take steps to reduce breeding grounds for mosquitoes.

Water in containers as small as a bottle cap can become active mosquito breeding sites in as few as five days, Beasley said in a DHEC press release.
