South Florida experienced heavy rain recently, which brought tons of mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are a public health issue and Broward County continues to be under a mosquito-borne illnesses alert. Mosquitoes that carry the Zika Virus, West Nile, and Dengue Fever breed indoors, outdoors, and bite any time of day. You can prevent mosquito-borne diseases from spreading by eliminating all standing water on and around your property. A mosquito’s life-cycle is approximately seven days and can breed in tiny amounts of water in bottles, cans, buckets, drains and plants. Broward residents can request free mosquito spraying service by calling 311 or http://webapps.broward.org/mosquito/request.aspx.
