Mosquito Control and Diseases

The Miami-Dade County Department of Public Works' Mosquito Control Division is responsible for mosquito abatement throughout the county. Residents should call the County directly at 3-1-1 (Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm; Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm) OR send an email to 311@miamidade.gov to

  • Report mosquito infestations to trigger a spray mission by the County
  • Be notified in advance of spraying

The County provides the following services for the Village:

  • Weekly larval and adult surveillance
  • Daily inspections once the mosquito population increases
  • Aerial or truck spraying once a population increase is confirmed
  • Chemically sensitive individuals can register with the County to be notified in advance of spraying.

Supplemental Efforts Undertaken by the Village

Most mosquitos originate in the salt marshes of Elliott Key in Biscayne Bay National Park. Others are carried by the wind from natural areas south and southwest of Key Biscayne.

The Village entered into a contract with Clarke Environmental Mosquito Management in 2005 to provide spraying services supplementing County efforts during peak mosquito season on a per application basis. The company is now known as Clarke (www.clarke.com) and provides environmentally responsible solutions for public heath mosquito control and aquatic habitats. This service continues with treatments scheduled on “as requested basis”.  Clarke will respond within 24 to 72 hours, depending on their demand. The company is able to predict the mosquito season by observing the amount of larvae breeding locally. The summary of service provided by Clarke is as follows:

  • Surveillance and Monitoring
  • Community-wide truck treatments

The Village Public Works Division specifically plans local mosquito control efforts so residents and visitors experience an enjoyable 4th of July event (as needed).

*Clarke (www.clarke.com) "provides environmentally responsible solutions for public heath mosquito control and aquatic habitats." The Village has contracted with this company since 2005 for as needed supplemental treatments beyond Miami-Dade County mosquito control efforts.
