Mosquito Control

Mosquito Control

In October of 2014, Council adopted a Mosquito Control Program consisting of historical data, surveillance plans, and community guidance to control mosquitos and the diseases they carry (also known as arboviruses). The Town contracts with Tarrant County to monitor traps and conduct ground spraying

Preventative monthly sprays are typically conducted on the fourth Thursday of each month from April through September, between 9:30 and 11:30 p.m. (weather permitting). Additional ground sprays are added when a mosquito from a nearby trap tests positive for any arbovirus. Residents are encouraged to subscribe to CodeRED alerts regarding scheduled and emergency ground sprays to be reminded to stay inside along with their pets during these sprays.

Arbovirus Prevention

Mosquitos can pick up viruses when feeding on an infected host and then spread that virus when feeding on another host. Although the likelihood of being bitten by a disease-carrying mosquito is low, the best way to protect yourself from contracting a mosquito-borne illness is to prevent bites. To protect yourself and your family, remember these tips:

🦟 DUSK to DAWN: stay indoors when mosquitos are active

🦟 DRAIN: prevent and eliminate standing water in flower pots, toys, gutters, and wading pools

🦟 DRESS: opt for light-colored long sleeves and pants

🦟 DEET: apply effective repellent when outdoors
