Sanibel notified by Lee County Mosquito Control of spray truck activity

By Staff | Jul 12, 2010

The Lee County Mosquito Control District (LCMCD) provides mosquito control for Sanibel and all of Lee County. 


The LCMCD will deploy spray trucks, weather permitting, on Monday, July 12 between sundown and 2 a.m. to treat areas from South Seas Island Resort south to Belding Drive including Wulfert Road and the Bowman’s Beach area. 


"Mosquito season" typically runs from May through October and mosquito activity increases with rain, particularly after heavy rains that produce large areas of standing water. Due to the abundance of mangroves, wetlands and salt marches, Sanibel is a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes.


For additional information regarding mosquito control on Sanibel, please visit the Lee County Mosquito Control District’s website at www.lcmcd.org or call (239) 694-2174.
