    “April Showers Bring May Flowers”

    No other saying could be so true. April showers bring more mosquitoes, we are all aware of the amount of rain that we received in the month of April now we are asking everyone to become mosquito control helpers. Please take time and go around your property and eliminate any standing water in flower pots or any other containers. Container breeding mosquitoes carry a tremendous amount of disease and only you can help prevent an outbreak.

    We are diligently monitoring our district doing every bit of preventive maintenance possible to prevent any form of outbreak, when you see a truck go through your neighborhood spraying in the early evening it is because the mosquito count in your area exceeds normal standards. We at South Walton Mosquito Control do not like to spray, with your assistance becoming more aware of your surroundings we can achieve our goal of less spraying.

    New announcements:

    1. After extensive work our website it is now up and running this will give you the opportunity to request services on a 24-hour basis. We only monitor our website between the hours of 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM, but all requests are answered. http://southwaltonmosquitocontrol.org/

    1. We will be announcing shortly the distribution of our “Black Balls”to help you deal with yellow flies. This is a service that we provide free to our district one blackball per household only and you must have proof of residency, phone bill with address, utility bill, etc. this is to prevent the abuse of a program that is yours.

    1. We are happy to announce that the renovation of our offices that were destroyed during last year’s flooding is near completion. We hope to be holding our first meeting in the building June 2015. This has been a long journey for everyone with all the agencies that were involved and we look forward to be able to continue providing our services to you and a better work environment for our people.

    1. We are currently accepting applications for part-time spray truck drivers. Contact our office for an application. 850-267-2112 or go to our web page.

    I speak for all of our commissioners and employees we are committed to serving you and providing you with the service you expect. We’re always at your disposal feel free to contact us with your questions.

    Respectfully submitted,
