South Walton County Mosquito Control District
- 3-31-17 Spraying Part of Route 4 and part of Route 7. As of this week our seasonal spraying has not gone into full effect. With the warmer temperatures coming our way we do expect higher populations of adult mosquitoes very soon.
The mission of the South Walton County Mosquito Control District (SWCMCD) is to serve the district by suppressing both pestiferous and disease carrying mosquito populations to a tolerable level in the safest, most economical manner, utilizing a variety of methods in such a way as to minimize potential effects on people, wildlife and the environment while maximizing the value to the district’s taxpayers.
On May 26, 1964, SWCMCD was established as a Florida Independent Special Taxing District for the sole purpose of controlling mosquitoes and other nuisance insects to improve the quality of life in beautiful South Walton County.
Most everyone is familiar with the spray trucks that visit the different areas of our district in the evenings with their lights flashing and the sound of the spray unit running, but there are many more aspects to our program. Click here for more information about our Operations.
