Broward County Mosquito Control Section operates a countywide control program. Any Broward resident or business owners who are troubled by mosquitoes may request service by:
Broward County Mosquito Spraying Request Form
Requests will be channeled to an inspector who will spray the requested area.
Mosquitoes carry serious diseases such as Zika, Encephalitis (West Nile, St Louis, and Eastern Equine), Yellow Fever, Dengue and Malaria. You are the first line of defense when it comes to controlling mosquito breed sites in your neighborhood.
- Check your yard for any standing water, including the inside of garbage carts, plants that hold water (such as bromeliads).
- Repair leaky pipes and outside faucets.
- Install screens on rain barrels.
- Change water and scrub vases holding flowers or cuttings twice each week, or grow cuttings in sand.
- Get rid of old tires, tin cans, bottles, jars, buckets, drums and other containers.
- Clean clogged roof gutters and drain flat roofs.
- Scrub and change water in bird baths twice weekly; empty watering areas of pets daily.
- Fill holes in trees with sand or mortar, or drain or spray them as required.
- Empty your plastic wading pool weekly and store it indoors when not in use.
- Stock fish pools or lily ponds with minnows. These fish devour mosquito larvae.
