The City of Palm Beach Gardens' Public Services Division has established a Mosquito Control Program in accordance with Florida Statute 388. Spraying for adult mosquitoes occurs when the targeted mosquito has reached a point where they have become a documented problem.
The City employs a licensed technician who drives the City and releases a controlled application of the insecticide as per the product's labeling instructions. The product used has a trade name of Duet. This insecticide is registered for use in outdoor residential and recreational areas for the control of adult mosquitoes. Each spray will occur from 10 p.m. through 6 a.m., weather permitting.
