Where: Lee County Mosquito Control District

Buckingham Army Airfield

15191 Homestead Road

Lehigh Acres, FL, 33971



The meeting is scheduled for January 12 – 14, 2016 (Tuesday through Thursday) at the Lee County Mosquito Control District. The meeting will start at 11:30am with lunch with presentations starting at 1:00pm.

The US Air Force Reserve is planning on holding a "joint training session" with us (they are required to recertify all the employees involved with their programs) and they will start on Monday January 11 with classes that are more geared towards their staff rather than the general Fly-In group.

We will be accepting/requesting presentations on appropriate topics related to mosquito control and aerial applications. If you have topic related to larvicides, adulticides, equipment modifications, special interest stories, GIS, public relations or legislative issues that you’d like to discuss, please contact:
