Now, through this fall, you can help the City of University Park Fight the Bite by taking simple steps to eliminate standing water on your property. Doing so will make it difficult for mosquitoes to breed.
Residents can report standing water locations to City staff. Dial 311, or call the Parks and Recreation Department at 214-987-5488. Residents can also call to arrange for a free property inspection and onsite advice on how to control mosquitoes.
Throughout the summer and early fall, when mosquitoes test positive for West Nile virus or are especially plentiful, the City will use our website and social media to provide residents with timely information on targeted overnight fogging efforts conducted to control the mosquito population.
The City is providing mosquito dunks to UP residents who stop by City Hall (Monday-Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. - 3800 University Blvd.). To receive the product you must show proof of residency (driver license). Mosquito dunks will be provided, one pack to each resident, until our supply is gone. This same product can be purchased at local garden centers.
Mosquito dunks look like a small, beige donut. They float in standing water. As the dunk slowly dissolves, it releases a bacterium which is toxic to all species of mosquito larvae. Dunks can be used in fish ponds, birdbaths, flower pots, rain barrels or any place where water collects and remains for a period of time. The dunks kill mosquito larvae before they grow to become biting and disease-spreading adults. The product is harmless to other living things. Each dunk is effective for a 30-day period.
In University Park, outdoor watering by automatic sprinkler systems is limited to twice a week, year-round. The City also prohibits the use of outdoor watering systems from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily from April 1 to October 31.
Consistent with ordinances in many other area communities, outdoor watering days are determined by street address.
