Brevard Mosquito Control fighting historic levels of breeding activity

MERRITT ISLAND —

As the entire county experiences heavy mosquito breeding activity, historic levels of breeding are being reported in Merritt Island.

The salt marsh mosquitoes are the main culprit, and are aggressive biters, no matter the time of day.

Mosquito Control said the activity has more than doubled over the past few years.

They are working seven days a week conducting field counts, monitoring traps and killing adult mosquitoes and larvae.

The salt marsh mosquito is not disease carrying, and there is no virus activity in the county from fresh water mosquitoes.
