Mosquitoes

The Mosquito and Aquatic Weed Control section protects the health of Hillsborough County residents by controlling nuisance and disease transmitting mosquitoes through the use of integrated pest management practices. Mosquito and Aquatic Weed Control provides service for all of Hillsborough County, including for the residents of Plant City, Tampa and Temple Terrace.

Our spray trucks spray at 5:30 PM using Ultra Low Volume (ULV) technology that emit micro droplets of pesticide which linger in the atmosphere until they encounter a mosquito. Aerial sprays are done by helicopter or airplane at 7:00 PM with pesticide Anvil 10+10 ULV to control adult mosquitoes.

Disclaimer: Mosquito control activities are largely weather-driven, therefore it is not possible for Hillsborough County Mosquito and Aquatic Weed Control to publish a treatment schedule in advance. We can, however, show you where we've been concentrating our efforts, by truck and by aircraft.
