Do Your Part to Fight the Bite!

Margate residents are encouraged to take every precaution to prevent the spread of the Zika virus and other diseases from mosquitoes. To help prevent the breeding of mosquitoes, drain any standing water in and around your home. Fight the bite by using repellent with DEET or other effective substance, wear long pants and sleeves when outdoors, and repair broken screens on windows and doors.

If you experience a problem with the pesky pests, please contact the City's Public Works Department to request mosquito control spraying. City personnel, who are professionally trained and licensed by the Florida Department of Agriculture, will conduct a special spraying in your area.
