Collier Mosquito Control District Resumes Treatment Missions on Monday, Sept. 18
The Collier Mosquito Control District (the District) has scheduled three treatment missions for Monday, Sept. 18. Western, central and eastern Golden Gate Estates will be treated by Skyvan airplanes using Dibrom after 10:30 p.m.
As well, the District’s Buffalo Turbine truck is distributing Bti larvicide throughout Immokalee to target mosquito larvae in the area’s standing water. The Environmental Protection Agency has concluded that Bti does not pose a risk to humans, but concerned residents may avoid the mist by going indoors when the truck drives by.
The District reminds residents:
• until electricity and cellular services are fully restored, not all residents may receive advance treatment notifications once the red, white and blue fleet is airborne again, and
• everyone should do their best to protect themselves from mosquitoes by using repellents containing DEET, picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus.
Mission announcements are posted at www.cmcd.org and in social media.
