Mosquito Control Activities

Inspections and Surveillance

Mosquito Control inspects property north of the Choctawhatchee Bay for mosquito breeding areas. We have a sentinel chicken surveillance program used to monitor the presence of Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus in an area.

We also use light traps to monitor mosquito populations in selected areas. These traps help us collect and identify mosquitoes by species to help determine the best method for control.

Other Control Activities

Mosquito Control collects waste tires from citizens from November through February. Only the rubber portion of tires will be collected (not the rims). We can not pick up tires from businesses.

If you have tires for us to collect, please call us at (850) 892-8183.
