When the City or Municipal Mosquito schedules truck-based fogging of streets, alleys, parks, or schools specific details will always be posted on this page and on the In the News section of the of the City's website. The City also posts the schedule on Twitter and Nextdoor.
During mosquito season the City places traps throughout the community to monitor mosquito counts and activity. Generally the traps are near schools and parks. City personnel check all traps on a weekly basis. Collected mosquitoes are sent to one of two area labs, Dallas County or Municipal Mosquito. The labs sort, identify and test the samples for West Nile, Dengue, Chickungunya and Zika viruses.
Here is a map showing the location of mosquito traps in University Park.
Mosquito control is a joint effort with both the homeowner and the City's Parks Department.
