Truck Mosquito Spraying

Miami-Dade County performs ground spray treatments to eliminate mosquito larvae and adult mosquitoes.

Larvicide treatments are conducted using truck mounted equipment to apply the organic pesticide Bti (Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis), which eliminates mosquitoes in the larval stage.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Bti is non-toxic to humans, pets, and animals, is a naturally-occurring bacterium found in soils, and has been used in mosquito control for more than 30 years. It is very effective when used as part of an integrated mosquito management program. It is also commercially available in granules and dunks, as well as tablets, pellets, briquettes and in liquid form. Larvicide truck treatments are typically performed in the pre-dawn hours of the date listed below. The schedule is subject to change due to weather or other conditions beyond our control. Adulticide treatments are performed at dawn or dusk when adult mosquitoes are most active. Every effort is made to avoid exposing residents to pesticide applications.
