Lee County Mosquito Control District (LCMCD) began treatment to control adult mosquitos Sept. 18, but areas with debris and flooding prevent ground control. Consider using repellent to protect yourselves from mosquitos, wear light-colored clothing that covers most of your skin, restore all window and door screens, and rid the area around your home of standing water. Residents are encouraged to contact their veterinarian for advice on mosquito protection measures for pets and livestock, especially for heartworm disease.

To report mosquito concerns, please call 239-694-2174.
