A Brief History

Orginally formed as The Gulf Mosquito Control District on October 14, 1952 when the citizens of the Panama City Beach area voted to create a mosquito control district. The District's name was changed to The Beach Mosquito Control District in early 1997. It operates under Chapter 388 of the Florida Statures and Rule 5E-13 under the Dept. of Agriculture and Consumer Services. An Independent Special Taxing District, it is governed by a board of 3 commissioners that are elected by the voters in the District; each commissioner serves a 4- year term. Funding is received to operate the District through the levying of a local ad-valorum tax, and state matching funds.

The District is dedicated to the control of disease-bearing arthropods and nuisance insects for the betterment, comfort, health, welfare and prosperity of district inhabitants.

 Yellow fly control in your yard using black beach balls. The Yellow Fly Trap is basically a shiny black beach ball covered with adhesive that is suspended in a way that the ball can move freely from tree limbs or poles at eye level. Yellow flies are attracted to this trap because it mimics a moving shadow of an animal or human on which these flies will feed upon. Instructions for making your yellow fly trap starts on page 4 of the link above.

 The welcoming of spring and warmer weather temperatures assist with increasing the unwanted mosquito populations in the Panama City Beach area.   The Beach Mosquito Control District will be utilizing their integrated pest management program which will include both day and night helicopter applications. 

Larviciding applications will be during the daylight hours.  The aerial adulticiding missions will generally begin around sunset and continue for 2-5 hours.  Future dates, times and locations will be announced in the near future.  If you have questions please call The Beach Mosquito Control District at (850) 233-5030, or see our website

When should I use mosquito repellents? Especially living in Florida you should use a repellent even if you're going outdoors for just a few minutes. It is another way to safeguard oneself from mosquito bites.
