Default Mosquitos

Is The Villages spraying anymore? I am in the Village of Fernandina and mosquitos are horrible right at sunset. How are they in the Squares at night? I have been here 4 years and have never seen them this bad.

We have been here 6 years (just south of 466a) and were at an outdoor party Oct 31st, and the mosquitoes were bad, this is the first time I was bitten multiple times, 9 to 12 on my ankle alone. As for your question, I do not recall seeing the spraying truck recently.

The Villages doesn't spray..... never did. At our home Sumter Co. sprays. G.G. posted a link to Sumter Co. It has a lot of contact info. PHONE, FAX, EMAIL , and even a Customer Satisfaction Survey. My guess is sadly few will read it.

I have seen the truck that goes around with a fog machine in our area and nearby. Usually latter at night when most people are in for the night....

They have been terrible at Brownwood. Numerous ankle-bites at Bluefin and in the square. Before this year, I hadn't been bitten in The Villages at all.

Living in Santiago, I use to see the truck numerous times during the summer around mid-night. Haven't seen it lately. However, my wife and I sit out almost every night from before sunset till after sunset and there have been no mosquitos at all. We do see these little black sand flea type bugs occasionally that do like to bite sometimes.

The end of October through the beginning of November seems to be peak mosquito season. Should get better soon.

I no longer will go to Brownwood from dusk on....just not worth it, getting eaten alive every time. The area around Osceola Hills is also deadly for me. Really don't spend time south of 44, but based upon my history south of 466A, I'm staying north.

Here is the scoop: The developer has a deal with one of the connections to the " Family " to bomb The Villages on a regular schedule. Obviously they have had a family " Tiff ' so...we us the residents are the victims.

The Developer controls practically everything yes they do especially when it comes to $$$ ...........................Period

Grin and accept it. Or Leave
