After heavy rains, we need to remember our role in the effective control of mosquitoes. Tall grass is a popular breeding ground for many species of mosquitoes, so in addition to removing stagnant water, garden maintenance is important.

Vector Control requires the general public to do the following: 5 defenses D:

DEET – Use insect repellents containing DEET.

dress – Wear long sleeves and long trousers when you go out.

DAWN, DAYTIME, and Dusk – Dawn, daytime and dusk are the most active times for mosquitoes. Keep out during these times to prevent bites.

drain – Regularly drain accumulated water, including empty cans, tires, buckets, clogged gutters, and water accumulated in the saucer under the potted plant. Mosquitoes breed in stagnant water.

Doctor – Talk to your doctor if you feel sick after being bitten.

Don’t forget your pet! Dogs are susceptible to heartworm caused by mosquitoes, so they spend a limited amount of time outdoors. For hairy friends, use only veterinarian-approved insect repellents.

Updates to the mosquito spray schedule will be posted on the city’s website. To view the current schedule and further updated schedules, visit the following website: https://www.cctexas.com/mosquitocontrol..
