City to spray for mosquitos throughout month of September

The City of Weslaco will continue vector control this week after ongoing rainfall has impacted our area.

The city conducts effective mosquito control to reduce the mosquito population and prevent or reduce mosquito-related outbreaks. The city's mosquito control program also enhances the enjoyment of outdoor activities at our parks. 
Throughout September, city crews will utilize truck-mounted spraying systems to disperse mosquito control spray along public roadways as well as in public parks. While the city cannot spray the fine mist on private properties, citizens are encouraged to participate in mosquito population-reducing measures such as utilizing insect repellent when outdoors, cutting tall grass, and emptying or removing standing water.

The city will conduct the spraying during the early morning and evening hours as indicated in the schedule below.
