Mosquito & Pest Info
Mosquitoes are insects with two wings. There are over 3,500 different species of mosquitoes found in the world; over 77 of these species are found in Florida. Forty-three species have been found in St. Johns County, each of which has a different habitat, behavior and preferred source of blood. About 10 of these species are most common and are vicious biters of man and animals in our county. Mosquitoes are not only a nuisance as biting insects, but are also involved periodically in transmitting diseases to humans and animals.
