There is currently an ongoing salt marsh mosquito issue in the areas of, but not limited to: South Gulf Cove, Placida, El Jobean, southern Port Charlotte, Charlotte Harbor, Cleveland, PGI, Burnt Store Isles, Pirate Harbor, and Burnt Store Lakes. We are aware of this issue and are working to resolve it which often takes 7-10 days at least due to reinfestations from state lands adjacent to these areas. We thank you for your patience as we address this issue.
Treatments are determined by several types of mosquito surveillance
; landing rate counts, trapping, and/or arboviral activity at one of our chicken sites
. By State law, a certain threshold of mosquitoes must first be met in order to spray. The treatment schedule is updated daily by the afternoon once we determine which areas require immediate attention. The treatment schedule as posted is a planned schedule which may be delayed or rescheduled due to weather conditions.
Please note: If no treatment missions are listed in the Upcoming Spraying list by late afternoon, none are scheduled for tonight. If no treatment missions are listed in the Completed Spraying section, no missions were performed within the last 7 days.
