Mosquito Control


Among the greatest advantages of living in Florida are the weather and the ability to be outside nearly year-round. Unfortunately, that great weather makes the Florida Panhandle an excellent home for mosquitoes. We all know the familiar bite of the mosquito. These tiny pests can be so abundant that they keep us indoors, especially in the early morning, at dusk, and in shaded areas. Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance, but they also pose a significant health risk, as they can carry diseases including West Nile Virus, malaria, and dengue. Their bite can transmit these diseases to you, your family, and your pets.

Mosquito Facts

  • It can take as little as six days for an egg to develop into an adult.
  • The adult female feeds on blood to help her generate eggs.
  • They are found in greatest concentration near standing bodies of water.
  • Mosquitoes are most active near dawn and dusk.
  • They prefer to remain dormant during the hottest parts of the day, as the heat may make them dry up and die.
  • The Florida Panhandle has virtually no break from Mosquitoes. Mosquito season starts when temperatures are constantly 50 degrees or more. That means Florida’s mosquito season runs nearly all year, February to November. However, this season shifts often in the Panhandle and many times our season runs into December.

Mosquito Predators

Mosquitoes and their larvae do have natural predators. Fish, frogs, and the nymphs of dragonflies and damselflies will eat the larvae. Birds, bats, frogs, and adult dragonflies and damselflies will eat adult mosquitoes. Even the abundance of these mosquito predators in our area cannot keep up with the high reproduction rate of the mosquito.
