Mosquito Control and Covid-19
You may be wondering whether mosquitoes transmit Covid-19. The answer is no. While mosquitoes can carry other viruses such as Dengue, Zika, West Nile, Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE), Chikungunya and malaria, the Covid-19 virus does not survive in mosquitoes because it can not replicate inside their bodies.
So stay safe, whether the threat is from Covid-19 or mosquitoes!

Mission of Mosquito Control
and Coastal Management Services Department
The Mosquito Control and Coastal Management Services Department is responsible for overseeing the Mosquito Control District and the Erosion District, which includes the Artificial Reef Program.
The mission of the Mosquito Control District is to control mosquitoes and other arthropods of public health importance, using a combination of Ecosystem Management and Integrated Mosquito Management approaches.
The Erosion District's mission is to re-nourish critically-eroded beaches, impacted by Inlet management and natural processes, in order to protect coastal resources, public and private properties, and public infrastructure. The Artificial Reef program creates artificial reefs in the nearshore and offshore waters of the Atlantic Ocean for public recreational use and habitat enhancement as well as creating oyster reefs within the Indian River Lagoon.
