Aerial Spraying For Mosquitoes In Polk County Expected Overnight October 19-20

Oct 20 Update:

Last night, approximately 81,000 acres were sprayed in Polk County for mosquitos. About 85,000 acres will be sprayed this evening. Spraying is scheduled from dusk to dawn; approximately 8:00 p.m. through 5:00 a.m. while most residents are indoors.

Due to a surge in the mosquito population from flooding caused by Hurricane Ian, Polk County Mosquito Control is working with the Florida Department of Agricultural and Consumer Services to help abate mosquitoes.

The decision for aerial spraying was made due to the overwhelming increase in the mosquito population, with the advisement of county health officials and in direct response to residents’ recent requests. Residents may notice low-flying aircraft applying insecticides approved for mosquito control.

At this time, there have been no reported or confirmed mosquito-borne diseases in humans in Polk County.

Should you have any questions or concerns about aerial spraying please contact Polk County Mosquito Control at (863) 534-7377.
