BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Brevard County Mosquito Control officials said the area was experiencing a moderate emergence of salt marsh mosquitoes due to the holiday season rainfall.
On its website, the county wrote: “Mosquito Control is aware of the extremely heavy mosquito outbreak and we are working diligently to address all infested areas. Please be patient as all Mosquito Control resources will be fully engaged in control efforts for the next two weeks, at a minimum.”
Officials said they were targeting spray missions in the areas with the heaviest populations first and will expand as necessary, weather permitting.
“This time of year, normally it’s dying down and we’re focusing on […] making sure everything is in good shape for the spring when things starting picking up,” said Joe Faella, director of Brevard County mosquito control.
“You can’t fight nature completely. We just try to reduce the populations for more comfortable levels.”
