Mosquito Control and Prevention

With the increased rain events, the population of mosquitoes is increasing. The City is monitoring the mosquito population and Volusia County will perform necessary treatment as deemed fit. Please follow the 5 Ds to help avoid getting bit.

Drain standing water around the house weekly. Standing water in flower pots, beach toys, puddles, or ditches provide lively breeding grounds for the pesky insects.

Dusk and Dawn are when mosquitoes are most active.  Take precaution and use a repellant.

Deet is an effective repellant.  Follow instructions.

Dress in long sleeves and pants.
