National Mosquito Control Awareness Week (NMCAW): What You Need to Know about Mosquito Protection

National Mosquito Control Awareness Week is June 19-25th. SWAT Mosquito Systems®️, South Florida’s leading mosquito control system provider, expanded into the Orlando market in 2022 and would like to spread mosquito control awareness across Central Florida.


As the month of May comes to a close, mosquito season is just underway. In Florida, mosquito season typically begins in late spring before reaching its peak in July and slowly winds down in the fall. There are more than 80 mosquito species living in Florida, alone, and according to the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS), about a quarter of these mosquito species spread germs that can cause diseases such as Zika, West Nile, Dengue, and Chikungunya viruses.

There are many options to help protect against mosquitos:

  • Eliminate standing water
  • Seal doorways and windows
  • Use DEET-based repellent and citronella candles


One of the most effective ways to protect humans and animals is with a mosquito misting system. These systems can reduce mosquitos by approximately 90 percent using plant-based formula released through a fine mist several times a day. The treatment, pyrethrum, is safe for both humans and pets and is derived from the chrysanthemum plant. SWAT Mosquito Systems®️ has been installing and maintaining these systems for more than 20 years and is offering free estimates and $200 off installations to commemorate National Mosquito Control Awareness Week. For more information, please visit or call 866-900-SWAT (7928).

Summertime is synonymous with backyard barbecues, swimming pools, and, of course, mosquitoes. While there are a number of ways to try to keep the mosquitoes at bay, one of the most popular and effective ways is using the SWAT Mosquito Misting System. There are all types of DIY mosquito control systems, but there are often many things overlooked in ensuring optimal efficiency.

There are many products on the market that claim to be effective at mosquito control, but one of the most popular methods is do-it-yourself mosquito misting systems. While these systems may be effective at mosquito control, they can also be dangerous.

Environmental Hazards of Chemical-Use

There are harmful chemicals used in mosquito misting systems, but thankfully they’re not too difficult to find. They can be toxic if inhaled or ingested by humans and animals alike–and even pros know that spraying for mosquitoes yourself might not work out well! Some products don’t actually keep these pests away at all; instead, we end up paying with our health every time one of them lands on us (not just during bedroom hours).

Plus this will make another thing join the long list of items you need around your house: pesticides near food sources like pet bowls etc., which is a hazard to your pet’s health.
