Mosquito Control and Prevention

The city of Fate makes effort throughout the year in mosquito control activities with larvicide surveillance, adulticide, and public education. Mosquito control activities are conducted year around but are increased from May through October, the most active time for Mosquitoes in North Texas.

 Each week mosquito traps are set throughout the City and testing is performed to determine any presence of virus.

The step by step approach endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control, Texas Department of State Health Services and the Texas mosquito control association employs:

1. Surveillance by sampling by trapping and testing mosquitoes for disease.

2. Reduction of mosquito breeding sites.

3. Biological control.

4. Chemical treatment when disease is present.

5. Public education to advise of personal protection measures.
