HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — A new online tool lets residents in Hillsborough County search for mosquito spray reports in their neighborhood. 

The new map is updated daily and shows where spraying is happening — by ground and by air. The map also provides information for planned and recently completed treatments, up to 28 days.

Hillsborough County Mosquito Management Services conducts spraying treatments when monitoring activities determine that mosquito populations have reached levels that threaten public health. 

They also spray if an incident of mosquito-transmitted diseases has been reported or if the nuisance threshold for the general population is exceeded. 

Treatments start after sunset and are finished before sunrise. If you want more information on why officials spray for mosquitos, visit this website.
