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.
