National Mosquito Control Awareness Week (June 26 – July 1) is an observation dedicated to educating the general public about the significance of mosquitoes in their daily lives and the important services provided by mosquito control workers throughout the United States.

Jacksonville Mosquito Control can trace its roots back to the 1950’s. When the City of Jacksonville and Duval County consolidated in 1968, the existing Mosquito Control districts were dissolved and the Jacksonville Mosquito Control Division was established. As citizens enjoy the summer season, the City of Jacksonville is encouraging them to stay safe and vigilant while enjoying outdoor activities throughout the summer months. The seasonable warm weather and related conditions often promote the presence of mosquitoes.

Jacksonville is home to 47 species of mosquitoes. While many species of mosquitoes are nothing more than a nuisance to citizens, several have the ability to carry mosquito-borne viruses including Zika, West Nile, Yellow Fever and more, infecting both humans and domesticated animals. The City of Jacksonville’s Mosquito Control Division is responsible for all mosquito control activities and efforts throughout the city.
