Mosquito management set for Sanibel, Captiva | Information, sports activities, jobs – SANIBEL-CAPTIVA
The Lee County Mosquito Control District has planned spray truck activities for the islands.
The district reported that between sunset today and 2:00 a.m. on October 6, the following areas were being treated by ultra-low volume sprayers for adult mosquitoes:
– From Blind Pass to the southeast to Belding Drive on Sanibel
– From the South Sea plantation south to Blind Pass on Captiva
The district provides mosquito control for the islands and all of Lee County. “Mosquito season” Usually runs from May to October and mosquito activity increases with rain, especially after heavy rains that produce large areas of stagnant water. Due to the abundance of mangroves, wetlands and salt marshes, the islands are a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Residents with large numbers of mosquitos in their home can submit an online service request at www.lcmcd.com or contact the district at 239-694-2174. When the district receives complaints from a particular area or neighborhood, it dispatches personnel to conduct a mosquito count and fogges or sprays the area when warranted.
