Do you live in Fort Myers or Naples?
Are you concerned about mosquitoes spreading diseases to your family?
Well, you have good reason to be!
Viruses like West Nile and Chikungunya are making there way into the US from places like the Bahamas and Caribbean, where outbreaks are spreading quite rapidly.
At this point most of the cases are imported from people visiting those places and unknowingly bringing them back, but Lee County Mosquito Control is already busy creating a plan of attack should the problem grow in our area the way it has in other parts of the world.
The best line of defense for you and our region?
Whether it’s learning the 5 D’s of defense, installing a mosquito misting system, or signing up for a monthly mosquito reduction program, Mosquito Control should be a priority when you live in Southwest Florida.
That’s why we think it’s so important to let everyone know that each year the week of June 26 is declared National Mosquito Control Awareness Week by the American Mosquito Control Association. “Mosquito Week” is a time to educate people about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important service provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States and worldwide.
