Mosquito control update - (Tuesday, August 23, 2016 - 1:00 PM)
I have just been advised that Palmetto Bay Village Staff has commenced dispensing of dunks into storm drains (and areas such as Bromeliads). The village is scheduled for treatment every afternoon thereafter until complete.
Miami-Dade County is responsible for Mosquito control. The actions of your village of Palmetto Bay are to assist and supplement, not replace the County's Mosquito control operations. You can and still should call 3-1-1 to report issues.
We encourage all residents to visit our Mosquito Protection Awareness page for updates, links and information about mosquito awareness and Zika virus protection.

What is 'dunking"? - here is the information that I am relying upon:
Mosquito Dunks are a biological mosquito control said to contain a natural mosquito larvicide, which kills mosquito larvae, but is harmless to birds, fish, wildlife, and pets. Simply place a Dunk in any standing water to control mosquito larvae for up to 30 days.
This is NOT a fog or a spray.
