Mosquito Control Efforts
The rainy season is here, bringing with it standing water that becomes the breeding ground for mosquitoes that carry viruses like Zika and Dengue. You can help us get rid of these mosquitoes by checking sites and objects that can collect water around your home. If you find water, tip the container over or toss it out. Click the 'Tip & Toss' button below for an illustration of areas around your home where water may commonly collect.
Martin County Mosquito Control takes the Zika virus threat very seriously, due to the potential severity of health outcomes, as well as our past experience with local transmission of Dengue. Mosquito Control works closely with the Florida Department of Health in Martin County to monitor the spread of the virus and protect local residents.
Martin County uses EPA-registered insecticides, following both federal and state regulations, according to the label. EPA-registered pesticides go through an extensive review process prior to registration and use. For more information, click on the 'EPA Review Process' button below.
Martin County does not apply pesticides directly to drinking water sources.
