[ARCHIVED] Mosquito Spraying Schedule

In anticipation of the 2017 Mosquito Season, The City of West University Place will be beginning city-wide mosquito spraying on Monday April 3, 2017.  Sprayings will be completed between the hours of 10 PM – 5 AM.  Weekly mosquito sprayings occur through October.  

If the level of activity requires the need for twice a week spraying during the year, a second treatment will be performed on Thursday nights (same hours as Monday night).  Advance notice is sent out as a reminder during such occurrences.  In cases of rain on any scheduled day, sprayings will be completed the follwoing night. (i.e Monday night rain, spraying moves to Tuesday 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, there is a possibility that the spray may not reach your side and/or rear yard.

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.

·        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.

·        Report standing water behind the curb via online request “Click West U” or call our Public Works office at (713) 662-5839 or email

If you have any questions concerning West U mosquito spraying, please contact Gerardo Barrera at or (713) 662-5845.  MSDS sheets are available upon request in reference to the products used for treatment.
