Mosquito control in Sugar Land requires participation on the part of both the City of Sugar Land and its residents.

Mosquito Spraying

Alert Icon - Small

Mosquito spraying occurs on
Friday nights (weather permitting).

The city sprays for mosquitoes to reduce the potential spread of mosquito-borne diseases. When spraying is required, the service will be performed on Friday nights, during the months of May through October. Spraying will begin each evening at approximately 9 p.m and continue until the entire city has been treated. 

The City regularly uses an EPA - approved adulticide application called Kontrol 30-30 with a once a month rotational application of Fyfanon to combat chemical resistance.

Larvacide Treatments/Mosquito Trapping

Larvacide applications are routinely performed citywide in order to help eliminate mosquito breeding sites.

Biting Gnats!

Biting gnats are a nuisance insect that, primarily, is active during the day and is not a disease carrier. Therefore, adulticide spraying is not performed. Residents are advised to practice the Four D’s to aid in preventing exposure: Drain, Dusk & Dawn, Dress, and Deet.
