Default Mosquitos ?

We closed on a home in St. Catherine's 2 weeks ago; we look forward to meeting every single one of you soon, especially the beer drinkers. Unable to move to TV until mid-September, however.

We've been on 4 lifestyle visits (is that a record?). We never had any issues with mosquitos. Does anyone have any comments on the need for a mosquito service at your home ?

I have rarely seen a mosquito, but I don't live near the water.

The Villages comes down the streets every so often and sprays for them. I don't know of anyone that does their own control. Welcome.

Sumter County handles mosquito control very well. When their traps have more than a set number of mosquitoes, they send trucks out at night to spray.

Maybe if you live near water. I've been here 13 years and have yet to see a mosquito.
Love bugs in May and September and that's about it.

No mosquitoes here but the other day got a letter from Massey telling us how much we need their service for this.

Letter quickly found its way to our circular file.

We had True Green Mosquito service for a year. A waste of money. Yes I have seen mosquitos at sunset but not that bad. Enjoy the villages.

I have encountered “no seeums” but very few mosquitos in the 10 years I have owned here.

If you live on a pond or preserve the mosquitoes are bad. We can not go outside in our yard at night without getting bit. People are correct about doing vector control and the Villages is better than outside the Villages. Mosquitoes seem to like to bite some people more than others, If you get mosquito bites where you live now it will be worse in Florida.

Default No mosquito problem

I have a beautiful lake in my backyard. Never had one mosquito bite in 10 years.

My lady friend lives in the village of Charlotte and the mosquitos are terrible. We cannot sit in her backyard swing and I got eaten alive sitting in a driveway a couple blocks away watching the 4th of July neighborhood fireworks.

Certain seasons, mosquitoes at dawn & dusk. Keep moving or wear spray. We are not on a pond. Sumter county does come around & spray but it doesn’t help much
