Rains and warm temperatures make Jacksonville a perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. Mosquito season usually begins in the spring and slows down in the fall. Mosquitoes can carry diseases that are harmful to people, like West Nile and Eastern equine encephalitis viruses.
Duval County has a modern mosquito control program that has been active since 1957, the Jacksonville Mosquito Control Division
. This Division routinely coordinates with the Duval County Health Department regarding these viruses and responds quickly with surveillance and appropriate treatments when warranted.
To request Mosquito Control to inspect or spray your property or neighborhood contact 630-CITY (2489) and an operator will assist you. Requests can also be made Online
