CLASS: Reclaim your yard from mosquitoes

Are you frustrated by mosquitoes in your yard? Not only do mosquitoes deliver an annoying bite, but infected mosquitoes have the potential to transfer diseases to humans and animals through their bite.

In this program you will learn about the life cycle of mosquitoes found in Florida and what you can do to reduce mosquito breeding sites around your home. Reducing breeding sites is critical to lowering the number of mosquitoes and protecting yourself and your family from bites. Register early through to reserve your spot and receive notice of any changes.
