Hillsborough County's mosquito fish giveaway events kick off as mosquito breeding season begins
Starting May 7, Mosquito Management Services will give away free mosquito fish to residents to help reduce backyard mosquito breeding. All Hillsborough County residents are eligible for free fish, including those who live in Tampa, Temple Terrace, and Plant City.
Hillsborough County is providing the free fish as an effective, natural way for residents to control the spread of mosquito-borne disease.
