ANASTASIA MOSQUITO CONTROL DISTRICT

                    www.amcdsjc.org

 

Attention!

AMCD is aware of the increased population of mosquitoes around St. Johns County. We are working hard to reduce populations.

If you do not see our trucks out, don't worry.
We do our fogging from 2:30am-6:30am or 8pm-11pm.

To avoid getting bit, wear long loose fitting clothing and apply any mosquito repellent that contains DEET.

 

________________________________________________________________________

OPERATIONS CONTINUE WITH THE FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS:

Service requests in the District will continue to be responded to, but we ask that you do NOT approach the responding field technician.  Instead of contacting you in person, they will call you when they arrive and either leave a door hanger or call you again with a report once they are completed.

Field Technicians are still monitoring mosquito populations and conducting routine surveillance of breeding sites for treatment.  If you see our technicians in the field, please follow the social distancing guidelines and do NOT approach them.  During this time, safety for all is of a higher concern.

Mosquito Control is a necessary component of public health and if not maintained, diseases can threaten our community.  For this reason, we will continue to operate to the best of our ability with safety for all in mind.

This will not affect operations, control of mosquito populations, surveillance, or the answering of service requests.

      Have you heard about Chikungunya?

Chikungunya (pronunciation: \chik-en-gun-ye click to hear pronunciationExternal Web Site Icon) virus is transmitted to people by mosquitoes. The most common symptoms of chikungunya virus infection are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash. Outbreaks have occurred in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans. In late 2013, chikungunya virus was found for the first time in the Americas on islands in the Caribbean. Chikungunya virus is not currently found in the United States. There is a risk that the virus will be imported to new areas by infected travelers. There is no vaccine to prevent or medicine to treat chikungunya virus infection. Travelers can protect themselves by preventing mosquito bites. When traveling to countries with chikungunya virus, use insect repellent, wear long sleeves and pants, and stay in places with air conditioning or that use window and door screens.
