Mosquito Tips and Resources

Miami-Dade County has a sub-tropical environment and is home to 48 species of mosquitoes. However, a few create sufficient annoyance and some can also transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus, dengue fever, encephalitis, malaria, chikungunya, Zika and dog heartworm.

Since its creation in 1935, the goal of Miami-Dade County's Mosquito Control Division is to control the mosquito population using the most effective methods, techniques, equipment and insecticides, thus enhancing the quality of life for all residents and reducing the possibility of mosquito-transmitted disease.
