Spring and summer brings frequent, heavy rain to Broward County and rain brings mosquitoes. Intense spraying for mosquitoes normally begins in June. Broward County Mosquito Control conducts aerial and ground spraying that target neighborhoods where high populations of the insects have been trapped.
This species of mosquito is often found in areas with stagnant water such as of uncovered buckets, flower pots, unused swimming pools and discarded tires. So as to curb the spread of the virus, we urge people to dump or drain any standing water that has collected in their property. Mosquitos that carry the Zika virus can live indoors and outdoors. They will bite during daytime. Mosquitoes need very little water to breed.
