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 will implement its annual mosquito spraying program beginning May 2016 through October 2016. Each spray will occur from dusk through 10 p.m., weather permitting.
The City employs a licensed technician who drives the City and releases a controlled ground application of the insecticide as per the product's labeling instructions. The product used has a trade name of Anvil 2+2 ULV. This insecticide is registered for use in outdoor residential and recreational areas for the control of adult mosquitoes.
ZIKA VIRUS UPDATE:
Beginning Monday, September 26th, 2016 another mosquito spraying has been scheduled in Palm Beach Gardens. Spraying will continue through Friday, September 30th, weather permitting. Each spray will occur from dusk through 10 p.m.
The City-wide mosquito spraying treatment will utilize a new chemical called Duet®, a dual-action adulticide, to combat night and daytime flying mosquitoes. The proven active ingredients being used are prallethrin and sumithrin (a CDC recommended active ingredient for Zika control). This week, City staff completed a comprehensive larviciding process to treat all catch basins, ponding grass areas and manholes within City limits with Naturlar T-30 tablets.
