Mosquito Control and Zika
Although there are currently no recent reports of local Zika virus cases in the region, Bal Harbour Village continues to take proactive measures to mitigate risk through integrated mosquito control efforts.
Staff from the Village’s Parks and Public Spaces and Code Compliance Departments are coordinating closely to routinely inspect the entire Village to ensure that there are no areas in the Village which contain long-standing ponding water. In the event there is standing water in any of the public right-of-ways, staff will take measures to appropriately remove or disburse the water and utilize environmentally-friendly products to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes in those areas. We ask that you do the same on your private property.
If you identify water that has been standing for more than forty eight (48) hours anywhere in the Village, please report it to the Parks and Public Spaces Department by email: firstname.lastname@example.org , via telephone at 305.993.7368 or the My Bal Harbour Mobile App.
Bal Harbour Village continues to work closely with Miami-Dade County and the Florida Department of Health to minimize mosquitoes in our area.
