Having trouble with mosquitoes in your backyard?  At least in my yard in Gainesville, we seemed to have an excessive population towards the end of June and beginning of July.  I would still prefer to have fewer mosquitoes, but I suppose it is the season for it.

As of the July 7, 2012 Florida Arbovirus Summary report, Florida has had 17 imported dengue and 34 imported malaria cases.

There was one equine case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis Virus in Holmes county.

St. John’s County was the only county under a mosquito borne illness advisory alert.
