National Mosquito Control Awareness Week is June 25 - July 1
As summer rains, high temperatures and humidity become the seasonal norm, Pinellas County is marking National Mosquito Control Awareness Week June 25 – July 1 with a crucial message to residents: breaking the mosquito cycle starts at home.

Pinellas County Mosquito Control is encouraging citizens to do their part to reduce the mosquito population with some simple steps:

  • Empty water from any item that can hold water (examples: flower pots, garbage cans, recycling containers, wheelbarrows, aluminum cans, boat tarps, old tires and buckets).
  • Flush birdbaths and wading pools weekly.
  • Flush ornamental bromeliads or treat with BTI, a biological larvicide available at home stores.  
  • Clean roof gutters, which can become clogged and hold water. 

  • Change the water in outdoor pet dishes regularly. 

  • Keep pools and spas chlorinated and filtered.

  • Stock ornamental ponds with mosquito-eating fish.

  • Cover rain barrels with screening.

  • Check for standing water under houses, near plumbing drains, under air conditioner drip areas, and around septic tanks and heat pumps. 

  • Take steps to eliminate standing water, improve drainage and prevent future puddling. 

Mosquito bites can irritate skin and potentially spread disease. Residents are urged to protect their skin from mosquito bites when outdoors by wearing mosquito repellent (products containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus) and loose-fitting clothing with long sleeves and pants. These simple preventative measures can help reduce the number of mosquitoes in Pinellas County and minimize mosquito-borne diseases.
