Mosquito control in Sugar Land requires participation on the part of both the City of Sugar Land and its residents.
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 applications are routinely performed citywide in order to help eliminate mosquito breeding sites.
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.
