GOLDEN GATE CITY, Fla. — A district plane sprayed Dibrom over Golden Gate City Saturday night.

The Collier Mosquito Control District said the insecticide application was in response to high numbers of mosquitoes in the area.

This comes shortly after the Florida Department of Health issued an advisory for mosquito borne illnesses in Collier County. A case of Dengue fever was confirmed in the area last month.

The spraying affected areas near Radio Road, Livingston Road and Santa Barbara Boulevard.
