Sunny Isles Beach Mitigation Efforts
The summer months are peak mosquito season. The City of Sunny Isles Beach and Miami-Dade County will again implement a number of preventative measures to mitigate the mosquito population in our area.
Our Building and Code Enforcement departments have been routinely inspecting properties for standing water throughout the City to ensure they are compliant with our code. Any findings of non-compliance are addressed to the full extent of our authority. In cases where a remedy is not immediately available, that area is treated to mitigate the breeding of mosquitoes. In addition to the above, the City is taking extra measures by treating both our stormwater retention areas and our drainage catch basins throughout the City to prohibit mosquitoes from breeding. We are also spraying our parks and beaches. We have contracted with a licensed and environmentally-friendly mosquito control company which has serviced the City. Miami-Dade County will also begin providing bi-weekly mosquito control treatments for Sunny Isles Beach beginning Thursday, May 10, 2018.

What You Can Do To Help
In addition to all that we are doing, we are asking our residents to be proactive as well. Follow the recommendations from the Florida Department of Health “Drain and Cover” Program. Also, help us identify any areas of concern.
If you see standing water that has not been removed within 24 hours, please report it to our Code Enforcement Division. If you have any technical questions regarding the removal of standing water, call the Building Department at 305.792.1735.
We will continue to work towards minimizing mosquito breeding in Sunny Isles Beach. You can take these proactive measures yourself:
- Drain standing water wherever it collects
- Cover bare skin with clothing and repellent
- Cover doors and windows with screens
