Several Areas to be Sprayed to Reduce Mosquito Populations
- Spraying to be done by truck starting August 30 -

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Mosquito Control Section will spray several areas of the County to reduce the mosquito larvae population such as that of Aedes aegypti, a known disease-carrying mosquito and aggressive biter. Preventative truck larviciding will be performed between the hours of 10PM to 6AM, weather permitting, from August 30 to September 17, 2021. The areas being targeted are portions of Cooper City, Davie, Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines and Broward Municipal Services District (refer to attached maps). Additional information about Mosquito Control can be found on

The larvicide being used is VectoBac WDG. This product is not harmful to humans, pets, bees, aquatic habitats or environmentally sensitive areas. The active ingredient is Bacillus thuringiensis israelensis (Bti, strain AM6552), a naturally occurring, biodegradable bacterial mosquito larvicide. It is certified by the Organic Materials Review Institute and is registered for use by the US Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, VectoBac WDG has been reviewed by the World Health Organization and is listed as a recommended formulation for control of mosquito larvae. 

Residents and business owners are encouraged to reduce potential mosquito breeding habitats by regularly surveying their property to remove any standing water found in buckets, tires, planters, birdbaths and fountains. By reducing the number of mosquito breeding habitats, residents will reduce the number of adult mosquitoes that could transmit diseases.

Broward County Mosquito Control Section continues to work closely with the Florida Department of Health and Code Enforcement partners in Broward's 31 municipalities to reduce the population of mosquitoes and their habitats.

Residents experiencing mosquito problems can request service by calling 311 or by completing the online Mosquito Service Request Form.
