Okaloosa County Mosquito Control and the Florida Department of Health urge the public to remain diligent in their personal mosquito protection efforts. These should include remembering to “SWAT.”

  • Stay inside with screened doors and windows when mosquitoes are biting (dusk and dawn);
  • When outside, wear clothing that covers skin;
  • Apply mosquito repellant that includes DEET [N, N diethyl-m-toluamide] on your skin when you are outside;
  • Turn over standing water where mosquitoes lay eggs or better yet – rid your outdoor area of standing water in which mosquitoes can lay their eggs.

The Mosquito Control Division of Public Works is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and may be reached at 651-7394 or 689-5772. Mosquito spray schedule, preventative tips and other related information is available on the County’s web site at www.myokaloosa.com.
