Mosquito Control

Mosquito Control

The City of West University Place has scheduled selective city-wide mosquito spraying over the next 5 weeks. Treatment sprayings will be completed Tuesday nights between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. on the following dates:  

  • Tuesday, June 28
  • Tuesday, July 5
  • Tuesday, July 12
  • Tuesday, July 19
  • Tuesday, July 26

In cases of rain on any scheduled day, sprayings will be completed the next night. 

Please be aware that the spray is spread by air circulation and depending on the thickness of your block’s tree canopy and spacing between homes, the spray may not reach side or backyards.

Your continued assistance is requested in helping to minimize mosquito breeding areas in and around your home by doing the following:

  • Remove/empty containers that can hold water, such as, flower pots, buckets, toys, and plastic swimming pools.  
  • Outdoor bird baths and pet water bowls should be changed at least twice a week.  
  • Keep rain gutters clean and free of debris to prevent standing water.
  • Repair leaks in irrigation system to prevent moist/damp areas in your yard.

If you have any questions concerning West U's spraying, please contact the Public Works Department at 713-662-5839 or pwinfo@westutx.gov.  SDS sheets are available upon request in reference to the products used for mosquito treatment.
