In addition to minimizing the presence of unwanted pests, Mosquito Control plays a key role in helping to ensure public and community safety. Orange County Mosquito Control has a working laboratory where researchers examine mosquitoes and larva found within the community. This information helps Orange County identify target areas for treatment and migration trends. Their efforts range from removing standing water, which serves as a breeding area, to providing research and information to partner agencies, along with spraying communities to rid them of mosquitoes. Mosquito Control works in partnership with the Florida Department of Health (DOH), which is the lead agency monitoring for the presence of infectious disease in Florida. DOH provides critical information to key partners throughout the state regarding the status or spread of infectious disease.
