The Florida Department of Health has information readily available for residents and visitors regarding mosquito bite prevention.  Mosquitoes spread viruses and parasites that cause diseases like chikungunya, dengue, Zika and malaria. Before you travel to areas where these diseases are found, talk to your health care provider about your health concerns.

The Zap Zika logo with "Join the Fight...Don't Let Bugs Bite," is the official image developed by community partners in Monroe County, including the Florida Department of Health, Monroe County, Mosquito Control, and TDC. The image is intended to instill with the public the importance of mosquito bite prevention.
