Mosquito Control Efforts

Charlotte County, Fla. (June 5, 2017) - The areas of South Gulf Cove, El Jobean, and Placida have had a series of mosquito hatches throughout the week and weekend. Scattered rain, wind and tidal events have contributed to the series of broods developing and hatching in rapid succession. Aedes sollicitans (Salt Marsh mosquito) and Ades taeniorhynchus (Black Salt Marsh mosquito) are swarming and causing a pestiferous condition. Some of the breeding is occurring in areas owned by the State of Florida which requires special permissions prior to any treatment being allowed. Charlotte County Mosquito Control has applied for those permissions and is diligently working to control the situation. Treatments (both air and ground) are planned in South Gulf Cove, El Jobean, Placida and other areas of the county. All treatments are weather dependent. Charlotte County Mosquito Control recommends the use of insect repellent and to follow the manufacturer’s application instructions. Treatment schedules are available at www.charlottecountyfl.gov – click Mosquito Control on the Living Page.
