The Two Most Important Reasons:

  • Nuisance biting adult mosquitoes – major nuisance in SW Florida

Mosquito Biology

  • More than 40 species of mosquitoes in SW Florida
  • Of those, the District closely monitors 5 species that are capable of transmitting disease to humans and pets
  • In Southwest Florida, our environment promotes the growth of a mosquito in only 5-7 days:

Mosquito Surveillance

  • The District monitors mosquitoes daily for population density, species identification, and presence of disease
  • Surveillance is the cornerstone of the District’s Integrated Mosquito Management (IMM) program
  • BG traps and CDC traps collect and count mosquito populations for testing in our laboratory
  • Landing rate count stations are located throughout the District. Field Technicians stand at the location for 2-5 minutes, counting the number of mosquitoes landing on them. Those numbers are also part of our surveillance data.

How does the District Control Mosquitoes?

Learn more about the Control Materials used by the District.

Controlling Mosquito Larvae

  • Mosquito larvae are controlled by applying materials by truck, drone, or helicopter.
  • Larval control methods we use: Bti liquid (16 oz./acre), Bti granular (4-7 lbs./acre)

Controlling Adult Mosquitoes

  • Adult mosquitoes are controlled by applying materials by helicopter or airplane using Ultra Low Volume (ULV) technology. Droplet sizes are measured in microscopic microns and treat the airspace. Little to no material even makes it to the ground, and quickly dissipates – there is no residual effect.
  • Materials are applied via ULV application from 300′ altitudes: Dibrom (0.46 oz./acre), Duet HD (0.8/acre ), and organic Merus 3.0 (0.83 oz./acre)

STAY INFORMED, STAY SAFE

The Decision to Treat for Mosquitoes is Based Upon:

  • Mosquito population density (larva and adult)
  • Mosquito species identification (larva and adult)
  • Compliance with material labels, rules and regulations
  • Weather conditions
  • Presence of disease in mosquito populations and health alerts (local, State and Federal)
  • Surveillance data, including citizen complaints by website and phone
