Prepare Your Home For Mosquito Season

mosquito season

With peak mosquito season around the corner, we would like to remind all residents to prepare their home for the upcoming hot and rainy months.

It’s important to be proactive, preventive and always remember to drain and cover.  

Also, have bug repellent on hand. Apply EPA-approved insect repellent when you go outside and

follow the directions on the label. The best repellents use DEET or picaridin as the active ingredient. Cover yourself by wearing loose, light-colored clothing (preferably long pants and sleeves), shoes and socks when going outside as well.

Report water that has been standing for more than 48 hours on the free, MiamiBeach eGov App by selecting the ‘Standing Water’ option under the Public Works Department. You can also report it to the Public Works Department by calling 305.673.7625.
