As the weather warms up and we spend more time outside, reduce mosquitoes by taking a few simple steps .

  • Walk around your property and make sure to empty or store planters, containers, tires, buckets, pots and other open storage items holding water/moisture.
  • Remove tarps, trash can lids and yard debris which serves as a breeding habitat for mosquitoes.
  • Check/clean gutters and use mesh lids and tops.
  • Catch run-off water from gutters in rain barrels and use mosquito dunks or bits to keep mosquitoes from breeding.
  • Ensure your pool equipment is running properly. If you suspect an unsafe pool, call Environmental Health & Sustainability at 972-941-7143 for larvicide treatment.

Everyone benefits by controlling mosquitoes in your neighborhood. Enjoy the great outdoors by following these easy tips .
